This is the government animal control services operating in Davidson County and sponsored by the city of Nashville. 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 615-862-4017 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 Nashville, 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 Nashville Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.
This is the statewide government wildlife agency in Tennessee, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the Tennessee Fish & Wildlife Agency. Tennessee 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 Tennessee perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
Yes, the Nashville 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 Nashville, 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.

Nashville Wildlife Tip:
What to use to keep racoons from riping off your house vents -Unfortunately, sometimes you have to be a little creative to keep racoons from ripping off the vents on your home. Most of the time, these animals are easily discouraged with some touch metal and a few screws. If you are having problems with a racoon continually opening up your house, it may be because the adult is a mother and her babies are inside your attic! This is why you can't just close up the hole a raccoon is using when you see it leave. Most of the time, the adult in a house is a female hiding her babies from predatory males. If you close her out, she will work her hardest to find a way back inside. The only way to handle a racoon infestation is to have the animal trapped and removed. Most states require this to be done by a person with a special license. The expert will come in, set up some cage traps, and locate the litter of babies. Sometimes, the tiny racoons can be removed by hand and then placed in the cage trap to lure in the mother. If the mother sticks around to defend her kits, she will need to be snared with a pole snare and guided into the cage.
