Many of Tennessee'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 Tennessee'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 Knox 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 Farragut animal control for wildlife issues.

Farragut Wildlife Removal Tip: What do wildlife rehabilitators do with mice?

Mice are one of the world's creatures that live on almost every continent and can inhabit most any environment, both urban and rural. They can be found living in bushes or dead logs as well as under your dresser or in your attic. You might happen across a mouse trapped in a pipe or bucket, or a nest of babies trapped in a crawlspace of your home. If you happen to discover a nest of mice in your house, yard, or other structure and do not want them there, but are not inclined to kill them yourself, you may want to call a wildlife rehabilitator. These are specialists that take all kinds of creatures (usually) at no cost to you; some animals may have been injured or trapped, and some are just in need relocation. When it comes to rehabilitating mice, there are several different scenarios that can happen. If the mice are tiny babies also known as pinkies they may be deemed too small to live. These will be dispatched mercifully, usually by using a gas that simply puts them to sleep. If they are healthy enough to live, they will be nursed and coddled until they can survive on their own.

They will then be released in a prechosen spot in the wild when the time is right. After they are released, the animal service often checks back to observe the animal(s) progress. If they are older mice, they will go through a health assessment to determine if they need medical aid before their fate is decided. Once they have been deemed healthy, they will go on to be released into the wild, or placed in one of the other programs. Some animal rehab facilities will keep a batch of mice to use for their adoption programs, or to breed for various reptile feeding programs. Both programs are a great way for the rehabilitators to offset the huge expense involved in housing, feeding, and caring for the menagerie of animals that are brought to them on a regular basis.

Any time an animal must be put down, it is done in a merciful way with the utmost reverence for life. When it comes to releasing any animal, a rehabilitation service takes the time to make sure that the are chosen for release is 1) suitable for the animal in question, 2) Is not overpopulated with the same type of animal. 3) Has ample food and water sources to support the animals, 4) and provides ample shelter and cover from predators to give the animals a fighting chance. Wild life rehabilitators are often the unsung heroes of the animal kingdom, providing a much-needed service with little recognition.
