Many of Alabama's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Alabama's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.
|We do not handle dog or cat problems
. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Jefferson county animal services
for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses,
pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Trussville animal control for wildlife issues.

Trussville Wildlife Removal Tip: What to do about a squirrel under the porch: Unlike other wild animals, squirrels are pretty much active all year round which means they'll be out and about during the day hunting for food in the winter and summer months. This also means that preferably nesting spots will change - when it gets a little too hot in the attic, for example, it might prefer a cooler position like under the porch. This gives you a little helping hand when it comes to using exclusion traps to get them out of the attic, encouraging them to move elsewhere, but will be bad news when you realize they've just moved from the attic to under the porch and the problem still hasn't been resolved. Luckily, there are things you can to get rid of the squirrels and make sure they stay away, but you're going to need to be prepared to be in the hard work. If there are gaps under the porch, make sure they can't be broken into. If they can, any wild animal will set up home there and you're probably lucky it was just a squirrel and not a fox, raccoon, opossum, rat, bat or any other critter often found in residential areas these days. You need to make sure you're protecting your own property - using steel mesh wire to cover areas that might otherwise be ripped or torn into, using sealant to make sure edges of doors, windows and vents aren't wracked with cracks and crevices, everything you can to make sure a wild animal can't get in. Once they're in, you've lost the battle. It's going to be hard work getting them right back out again.
Trussville Animal News Clip: Wildlife - Giving shelter to Trussville Animals
Lisa Squirrel-Faced Girl of Leaf River takes animals to the facility and raises money for it by helping Jimmy Vitale with casino fundraisers at Trussville Wild Lodge. "Snake Woman always seems to be scratched or bandaged, so I'm sure much of her money goes either back to the facility or to her own medical expenses." Alabama has an abundance of wildlife, and Trussville is no exception.
This year, Raccoon Zoo became a Designated Eagle Facility. It houses two bald eagles, rabbits, squirrels, Raccoon, Opossum & Squirrel, birds of prey (owls, hawks and eagles), foxes and coyotes. Steve will go out to get eagles or animals that are caught, but generally, animals are brought to them. Although several species of wildlife roam Trussville, only a few, such as raccoons and squirrels and rats are considered pest wildlife.
Since gaining a Raccoon, Opossum & Squirrel permit and eagle designation, Raccoon Zoo no longer takes raccoons. They prefer to focus on larger animals or birds of prey. As the years add up, so do the stories. Alabama has many reptiles, and it's important to be able to identify Trussville snake species and mammals.
One of the facility's more unusual visitors was a beaver that was brought in. It had a massive abscess, was getting old and didn't make it, but Snake Woman says it didn't deserve the bad rap beavers get. "She was so sweet." In 20 years, they have only had the one beaver there. Remember to treat the wild animals of Trussville, Alabama, with respect and care.
