This is the government animal control services operating in Multnomah County and sponsored by the city of Portland. 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 (503) 988-2738 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 Portland, 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 Portland Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.
This is the statewide government wildlife agency in Oregon, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the Oregon Fish & Wildlife Agency. Oregon 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 Oregon perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
Yes, the Portland 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 Portland, 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.

Portland Wildlife Tip:
How to kill rats in the house -There are a number of ways to kill rats in the house. Some people holster a baseball bat at their sides for just such an occasion. In reality, when dealing with rats, trapping is the only effective and efficient way to go about it. You can try to snare the rats with a homemade device, but this will require a lot of time during which the other rodents will be chewing on wires and creating trouble. Before you go about your trapping, you need to plug the holes in the exterior of the home. Rats came in through one of these locations. It must be found and sealed. Do not worry about the rats left inside the building; these are the animals that are going to be trapped. Your next task will be to search your home to find the places where the rats have been visiting. Rodents use the same pathways over and over, and these areas will be clearly defined by the use of droppings, urine, and body grease. All of these substances contain odors that tell a rat the location is safe. When found, do not clean these areas. Wait until you have set your traps and all the rats are caught. When no more rodents are in the home, cleanup will be the next chore.
