If you must "report" an alligator call 1-866-FWC-GATOR, and if you must report an injured bird, call 407-339-2900. If you have an orphaned baby squirrel or opossum in a box, call 407-260-6137.

People in Florida oftentimes have problems with animals. Much of the time, the problem comes from dogs and cats. Dogs are the most common nuisance. Sometimes a neighbor has a very aggressive or vicious dog, and it is a concern to your safety. Sometimes a potentially dangerous dog is roaming the neighborhood loose. Sometimes the dog isn't a threat, but still, is lost and stray. People have problems with cats because there are so many stray cats in Florida, and Orange County is no exception. People often find a litter of kittens, or hear cats fighting or mating at night. If you have problems like these, call the county animal control number at 407-254-9140. Or, if you get stuck in their voicemail system, call the general county services at 407-836-3111.
However, if you have a problem with a wild animal, such as a raccoon or opossum, the orange county animal services in Florida will not help you. They do not handle any wild animal problems, nor will they go into your attic, under your home, perform exclusion repairs, or any of the other services necessary to solve wildlife issues. If you want a wild animal problem taken care of, you must call a private trapping company, such as mine. You are of course welcome to hunt around for whoever you think will give you the best service at the best price, but I'm confident that AAAnimal Control is the best.
