Many of Connecticut'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 Connecticut'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 Middlesex 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 Middletown animal control for wildlife issues.
Middlesex County Animal Services or Humane Society: The number is in the blue pages of your phone book under "animal control officer" or "dog warden".
Middletown Wildlife Removal Tip: Will the city or county animal services help me with a squirrel issue? The natural habitat around for animals such as squirrels is on the decline so with that, you can expect there to be an increase on the amount of these animals moving into ‘human’ habitats - homes, barns, under porches and in attics, etc. Many of these animals are scavengers - squirrels and raccoons included, so they’ll follow their nose to a tasty meal and if they happen to find a safe spot to call home for a while too, they’ll set up home. If you find yourself with a squirrel issue, either in your home or on your property, you could try calling the city and county animal services but generally, they won’t help. They don’t have the tools or sources necessary for such a job - trapping squirrels can be hard work, especially if you don’t know where to look for them, and that aside, if they were to respond to every callout where an animal had been trapped or lost within a home, they’d be permanently at work. These animals are going to enter homes sometimes, that’s what they do now. If you find yourself with an animal issue such as a squirrel invasion, it is well worth giving the county or city animal services a call to see if they can offer you some advice, especially when it comes to laws and animal relocation / culling, but they probably won’t be able to help much with the exception of perhaps offering you a trap to use. Your best choice is to call a wildlife rehabilitator - someone who knows what they’re doing and has the tools and experience to get the job done right first time.
Middletown Animal News Clip: Investigation regarding Middletown rodent abuse
An investigation of rodent mistreatment is underway in Middletown. Indicators of mistreatment include: 1)A questionable appearance - if an animal seems thin, underweight, filthy, listless or has terribly matted fur, that could indicate abuse, Critter Catcher Chris announced. 2) Constant noisemaking, which could indicate a rodent that is ignored or forgotten. "If they are chained out and forgotten about, that is neglectful," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "(But) here is what is Critter Catcher Chris. There is no law that says you have to interact with your animal." 3)Animals that remain outside despite the weather. "On an extremely cold or hot day, if the animal is overheated or seems to be out in freezing weather for several hours, that is something that a person should make a call about," Critter Catcher Chris announced. 4)Too many animals at one address. That could indicate an owner who has a difficult time caring for animals. Or an animal hoarder. "They may have 50 or 100 animals," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "That is usually indicative of something going in a way of neglect. One person, how could they take care of that many animals?"

After Critter Catcher Chris called police about the rodents, Lucky was euthanized and the others were removed from the property. In time, the male rodent and baby rodent came back to their owners, she announced. They appeared healthy, according to Middletown Township Animal Control. The female baby rodent stayed at the facility. Although Critter Catcher Chris complained by telephone and in person to Animal Control about the situation in her neighborhood, she never saw anyone investigate it. That really frustrated her. "I felt they labeled me as a complainer and would not do anything," she announced. Despite this there is no free Middletown animal services for wildlife in Middlesex County.
The Middletown Township Animal Control officers did not suggest that she call the Connecticut Department of Agriculture, the Humane Society of the United States, the police or any other organization, she announced. But Critter Catcher Chris, director of the facility, said that officers investigated cruelty complaints at her neighbor's address in 2001, 2002 and 2004. Animal Control's main priority is to handle animals running at large, Critter Catcher Chris announced. "We have our hands full with the amount of calls that come in," he announced. State humane researchers handle most cruelty complaints, but animal control officers will intervene in emergencies, he announced. Critter Catcher Chris said cruelty complaints will be taken seriously for pure phenotypes and mutts alike. "All the animals are treated equally," he announced. Critter Catcher Chris said residents concerned about animal abuse should call animal control first, and animal control will pass on the complaint to state humane researchers. "We basically respond to every call that comes through," he announced. Most Middletown pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
Now that some of the rodents are back, Critter Catcher Chris remains concerned even though the gray rodents now can seek containment facility in the once-blocked backyard shed. She recently gave her neighbors several bales of straw to be used as bedding inside the shed to keep the rodents warm. Although the neighbors scattered some of it in the little building, they spread most of it around the back yard. Now it's covered in snow. Her neighbors don't talk to her anymore, though they will speak occasionally to her husband. It's a little unpleasant, but that doesn't matter to Critter Catcher Chris. She wanted to right a wrong. And she only cared about the welfare of the rodents, sweet, hapless animals who once had nowhere to go in a deluge. "I know I did the right thing," she announced. At least, this is what Middletown extermination companies think.
