Kanawha County Animal Services: 304-342-1576

Animal ControlThis is the government animal control services operating in Kanawha County and sponsored by the city of Charleston. 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 304-342-1576 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 Charleston, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Charleston Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 304-822-4489

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 Charleston Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.

West Virginia Wildlife Commission: 304-558-2771

Game WardenThis is the statewide government wildlife agency in West Virginia, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the West Virginia Fish & Wildlife Agency. West Virginia 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 West Virginia perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.

Charleston Police Department: 304-348-6400

PoliceYes, the Charleston 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 Charleston, 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.

Charleston Wildlife Tip:
Will baby groundhog still chatter when it's with mother is gone - A baby groundhog will still chatter when it's with its mother. Babies talk all the time, and even when nursing they often make whimpering sounds. The only time they are completely silent is when they are sleeping. There is no way to tell if the adult groundhog is in the den just by the sounds the babies are making. When it's feeding time, the babies can be very vocal, even when the mother is there waiting to nurse them. As they grow older, the litter will start to interact more, fighting and playing with the other members. It takes a trained ear to be able to tell the different sounds of a groundhog baby and what they all mean. Sometimes the noises sound remarkably like that of another animal. It's not uncommon for people to hear a baby groundhog and think they just heard a bird. The mother will also be vocal in the den, but she will make more guttural sounds as opposed to chirps and squeaks.
