Free Dead Animal Removal - Cook County IL

The city of Chicago offers free dead animal removal services in the case of dead animal carcasses on public land, or dead animals in the roadways. Examples might include roadkill such as deer, or a dead raccoon in a county park. For free government dead animal removal services call:

City of Chicago Dead Animal Pick Up: Department of Streets and Sanitation: 3-1-1

Aside from the city of Chicago animal services or Cook County Animal Control, free dead animal removal is sometimes offered by government agencies that go by names such as public works department, department of transportation, environmental services, division of street maintenance, sanitation department, etc. Don't call the Chicago police department or Chicago SPCA or humane society. Click here for Dead Pet Body Removal in Chicago. Usually you can put dead animal carcasses in refuse containers - aka garbage cans, although sometimes that's frowned upon. I'd do it for smaller animals under 20 lbs for sure though. For larger animals maybe call the sanitation dept. or call the number listed above. The removal of large livestock animals such as a dead horse or dead cow is usually handled by private enterprises. But in all cases in Chicago, if the body is on private property, the removal of dead animals is handled by the citizen or by a private company, such as ours listed below.

Welcome to Chicago Dead Animal! It is our number one goal to eliminate pest and dead animal problems in residential and business premises – and we do this by eliminating every aspect of the problem. Our team of friendly, highly trained, and properly licensed and insured controllers will start by locating the dead or alive animal(s) before then coming up with a plan on how to retrieve it. There are laws dictating the handling of certain animals, specifically dead animals, but we take the worry out of the process by being fully trained in those laws, which often change from state-to-state, and can even change from city-to-city. We can locate and remove all dead nuisance wildlife, including birds, squirrels, raccoons, opossums, foxes, rodents, and more. Just give us a call and tell us what the problem is and we’ll take care of the rest. Our specialist team promises to find and remove dead animals, and then completely decontaminate the area so that no biological hazards remain. Along with that, our highly effective deodorising process ensures that no nasty smells linger in the building – a common and very unwanted side effect of having animals, live or dead, on the property. Dealing with these scenarios are unpleasant, and can cause emotional distress to those who would much rather not deal with such a situation – but that’s where we come in. In just one visit, we can locate, remove, sanitise, and then restore – and we’ll make sure that we’ve properly cleaned up afterwards, too.
