Erie County Animal Services: (716) 851-5694

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Erie County and sponsored by the city of Buffalo. 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 (716) 851-5694 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 Buffalo, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Buffalo Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 716-652-8646

RehabberThis 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 Buffalo Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.

New York Wildlife Commission: 518-402-8920

Game WardenThis 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.

Buffalo Police Department: 716-851-4403

PoliceYes, the Buffalo 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 Buffalo, 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.

When should you hire a company and pay for wildlife control services?

Buffalo Wildlife Tip:
What type of animals don't like to live in water - Most mammals won't perpetually live in water. They do not have the ability to regulate their temperatures well enough to survive in such a cold environment. Some do enjoy the occasional swim on a hot day, but the water is reserved for fish, amphibians, and reptiles. There are always exceptions: otters, beavers, muskrats, nutria, dolphins, and whales are all mammals that spend most if not all of their lives in the water. These creatures have special adaptations that keep them warm while swimming, something tigers, bears, and a host of other fur-bearing critters do not. All animals need water to survive, but only a few can live in the water. There are a good number of mammals that live near creeks or rivers for food. The intelligent raccoon will often fish or eat crustaceans from water bodies. The raccoon can swim, too, but does not make a habit of the indulgence as it cannot move fast in the water to escape a predator.
