dead animal removal

Living with wildlife is a reality that most of us need to accept; however, it does not mean that you will have to welcome them inside your house. Once a wild animal enters our property, there is also a good chance that they will die there. A deceased animal presents a range of problems to businesses and homeowners. Some of the familiar places where the animal will expire are our ceilings, the void of our walls, the attic, and the inaccessible areas. Getting them out could be a challenge for those who lack experience and knowledge. We have a complete set of equipment to ensure that the carcass will be extracted regardless of location. We can also dispose of them lawfully and discreetly. We are authorized and certified by the state to perform dead animal removal and other related services.

We are experts in dead animal removal, and take our job seriously. When removing dead animals, we do a COMPLETE job — not only do we remove the dead animal from your home or yard, we also decontaminate the area, deodorize it, and dispose of the animal or cremate it. If you aren't sure whether the stench in your house is due to a rotting carcass or another reason, we can sniff it out with our noses from our years of experience. We remove dead raccoons, dead opossums, dead skunks, dead squirrels, dead birds, even dead dogs and cats. We frequently remove dead rodents from inside walls, because poison kills rats and mice, who die in your house. We completely solve your dead animal problem by taking these steps:

  • Sniff out the dead animal if it is somewhere in your home
  • When necessary, for example if the animal is in a wall or under your house, cut a hole to remove the animal
  • Remove the dead animal, safely and completely (and seal the hole if needed)
  • Finish the job by decontaminating and deodorizing your home
  • Properly dispose of the dead animal through incineration or other means
  • Prevent it from happening again by finding out how they got in your house

Dead animal carcass removal is specialty work. Sometimes the job is simple, such as a dead opossum in the yard, in which case we can simply wear our gloves and respirator mask, bag the carcass, and take it away for incineration. Sometimes this is more complex, such as when the dead animal is under a home crawlspace, under a porch or deck or shed. Or if the animal is larger, such as a dog or a deer. The most complex cases are dead animals inside the house. The animal may have died inside the attic, or down in the walls, or the duct work, or any other part of the architecture. You may have a bad smell in your home, and you're not even sure what's causing it. We've removed not just dead animals, but rotting food, bad mold, etc. We specialize in locating the source of the smell, and we very commonly cut a hole in the ceiling or wall to remove the animal. We remove every bit of the carcass, mop up the juices, vacuum the maggots, spray it and wipe it down with disinfectant, cleaner, and we repair the hole we cut. In some cases we use ozone machines to neutralize odor.

New York City Dead Animal Tip: How to Dispose of a Dead Dog

If you’ve recently lost a dog, you’re likely still in the grieving process. However, like for wild animals, you don’t have any time to waste. Within hours or days, decomposition will begin. Therefore, it is vital to start taking immediate action to dispose of the body.

Luckily, there are plenty of options available. Depending on whether the dog is yours or you found it on your property will change disposal methods. If the dog isn’t yours, you will want to contact your local vets to discover if the dog was chipped. They will then contact the owner and take responsibility going forward. Otherwise, if the dog is yours, you must first decide how to say goodbye to your beloved pet. Your options are:
Burial (either in a pet cemetery or at home)
Private cremation
Communal cremation
Local animal control disposal
But what does each of these options involve?

When alive, dogs are a significant part of our family. We grow to love them, and them us. As such, many people see it as fitting to give them a proper burial. It provides the owner with a place to mourn and to visit their cherished animals. Nevertheless, you can’t bury a dead animal anywhere. In urban and suburban neighborhoods, there are likely to be specific regulations about burying animals. It is ill-advised to break the local laws. You will also want to avoid damaging any underground power lines or pipes running through your back garden.

If you proceed with a home burial, ensure you dig at least 2-3 feet down. Otherwise, you risk issues when it rains or from scavengers digging up the body. Alternatively, you can bury the dead dog in a pet cemetery. The body will be wrapped in a sheet and placed inside two heavy-duty plastic bags by your vet. Before burial, many vets can temporarily refrigerate or freeze the body. Then, burial can occur. You may even wish for a wooden casket, inside which you can place their favorite toys and belongings. You can also choose to have a headstone or plaque at the grave

If you do not wish to bury your dog, then cremation is another option to consider. Most vets will deal with the local cremation center and will handle the details. Or you can contact the cremation center directly.

There are two types of pet cremation:
Private cremation: Here, the dog is cremated alone. You will receive the ashes back afterward. The ashes are often placed in an urn or even turned into jewelry. However, many owners choose to scatter the ashes in a sentimental location.
Communal cremation: With this option, you will not receive the ashes back. The dog will be cremated alongside other pets, and then the ashes are scattered in a natural setting. The option is less expensive.

Local animal control
Local animal control authorities or companies are well-equipped to deal with the collection and disposal of dead animals. It is significantly cheaper than other options and is also efficient. Many will even be able to handle larger dogs.

Other options
For smaller dogs, you may be able to bag them up and place them in the trash securely. However, many local authorities have regulations prohibiting such actions, and for larger dogs, this is almost certainly not an option. You can also be fined for doing so. However, some local authorities, such as New York, offer the free disposal of dead animals. Therefore, it is worth getting in touch to find out more information.

Handling the dead dog
Despite being a domesticated pet, dead dogs can still present a significant disease risk. When handling the dog, you will want to ensure you are fully covered. Additionally, decomposition will likely have begun, depending on how long the animal has been dead. So, be aware of the risk of fluid spillage.
Always put on gloves, a mask, and an apron.
Then, wrap the dog in a sheet, towel, or blanket.
Pick the sheet up and place it inside a heavy-duty plastic bag.
Tie the bag up and transport it to the required location.

You may also want to line your car with plastic bags or cardboard boxes to prevent any leakage into your car’s interior.
