This is the government animal control services operating in Monroe County and sponsored by the city of Rochester. This agency typically deals with domestic animal issues involving dogs and cats. This includes things like dangerous dogs, stray cats, pet adoptions, etc. However, this agency will sometimes lend assistance with wildlife concerns. Call (585) 428-7274 and ask if they will assist with your wildlife problem. To increase the chance of success, do not lie, but if applicable, state that the problem is a public health matter in Rochester, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
This is NOT a government agency. It is privately run, and operates on volunteer donations. This is a wildlife rehabber facility that deals strictly with wild animals. They may be able to help you with your wildlife problem, depending on the type of problem. The level of help might depend on their resources at the time. They will almost surely help in any case of an injured wild animal, or an orphaned baby animal, such as a baby squirrel or bird that fell out of a tree, or a baby opossum, etc. Please treat Rochester Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.
This is the statewide government wildlife agency in New York, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the New York Fish & Wildlife Agency. New York game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and yes, wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. But they also have resources that may apply to your wildlife problem. To increase the chance of success, state that the problem is a public health matter in New York perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
Yes, the Rochester police department will sometimes help with wildlife problems! I've seen many cases of the cops chasing down an errant bat in your house or snake in your pool! To increase the chance of success, never lie to the police dispatcher, but if applicable, state that you feel your personal safety is at risk, or the problem is a public safety matter in Rochester, or a public health issue perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases. Success may come down to whether or not a police officer wants to show up to this call, or is available. It's not always consistent.

Rochester Wildlife Tip:
How to kill rats in your home -To kill rats in your home you must first stop the rats from coming inside. This does not mean you will exclude all the rats from your home; what this means is that you will close up the rat holes so that no ore rats can get inside. Any rats that are out of the house at the time will not be able to get back in, but it is likely that there will still be rats in the building. Do not worry. These animals are not going to panic and chew through the walls to get out. Buy some snap traps and bait them with peanut butter. Baited traps will be more enticing to hungry rats. Traps should be set in multiple locations around the home where rat activity has been noted. Rat activity can be in the form of droppings, chew marks, claw marks, or body stains. Areas where the rat has built nests are also prime trapping locations. By using these areas against the rat, you will ensure the best chances at catching the nuisance animals. Rats will return to the same areas over and over again. For this reason, do not clean the area prior to setting the trap. You want the droppings to remain so that the rat thinks it is still safe.
