Please be aware that dead animal pick-up's are considered a non-emergency (low priority call). If animal control officer's are currently responding to emergencies (animal bites, vicious animal, animal abuse, injured animal, etc.), it may be between 24 to 72 hours before the dead animal is retrieved. Also, dead animals are only picked up during daytime hours. An option would be, using a shovel and gloves, place the animal in the plastic trash bag and bring it to Animal Care Services for proper disposition.
