Many of New York'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 New York'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 Richmond 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 Staten Island animal control for wildlife issues.

Staten Island Wildlife Removal Tip: Do dogs keep rats and mice away?

Well, this is a hot debate. One that requires strong support in as much as keeping the rats and the mice away by the dogs or the cats is concerned. Well, who do you think does the best job in keeping these small guys away? Cat or the dog? It is confusing right? To break down this, I would start by saying that cats are more superior. HOWEVER, not even the most skilled cat will completely solve the rat problem in your house.

Dogs, rats and mice

When I think about the cats and the mice, I always laugh, this takes me back to the era I used to watch my son glimmer with joy remembering the events of the last episode of "Tom and Jerry" therefore, I know this may leave you wondering; do dogs really keep the mice away? Quite straight, dogs are quite fierce just like the cats when the rats and mice are in the equation. However, from the surface, it may seem quite awkward seeing a dog chasing after the rats and the mice around the house.

Why you need a dog

Dogs are territorial. As opposed to cats which by the way care less about what is happening around them, dogs are known to secure their territory. Well, this simply means that, if a cat doesn't feel like running around, they simply won't.
Dogs are active. Well as the years go by, cats seem to be less inclined to the heavy "mechanical" work of running around. On the other hands, dogs will be active until they are no more.
Guaranteed results with the dogs. Well dogs are loyal, right? Therefore, they tend to attract attention to the owner by pleasing them in any way they can. Therefore, if you have a dog trained to catch the mice and the rats, then be sure of the results.

These are some of the reasons why you may consider having a dog in place of a cat.


That's it! Dogs are pretty in what they do. The results are clean, efficient and guaranteed. Any dog can be trained to keep the mice and the rats away. However, the training is all that matters. It is what defines the final outcome. Nevertheless, even though any dog can be good at this, you need to consider the smaller ones. They will go to "hard-reach" areas to get the rats.
