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.

Reading Dead Animal Tip: What to do with a dead dog?

The loss of a dog – your family pet – is an emotional and difficult occasion. You’re saying goodbye to an old friend. However, it also presents several difficulties, particularly if your dog died unexpectedly at home. If you’ve just discovered the body, it may help to have support. Call up a friend or family member to help you physically and mentally with the process. On rare occasions, you may even be dealing with a dog that isn’t yours. Here we’ll discuss the steps to follow after your dog has died.

Ensure your dog has passed away
At first inspection, it looks like your dog has died. But are you sure? Your dog might just be unwell. Feel for a pulse to ensure if it is alive or not. If you fear they’ve suffered a cardiac arrest, you might perform CPR or other first aid. This will keep your dog alive while you wait for a vet to visit. However, if you have confirmed your dog has passed away, you may also contact your local vet for assistance.

When handling the body, always do the following:
Wear gloves to prevent contact with bacteria and germs
Wrap the body in a blanket or sheet
Wipe up any bodily fluids
Store the body in a cool, dry place (such as a garage)
Within a few hours, rigor mortis will occur – handling the body will become more difficult

Contact your local veterinarian
During the working day, your vet will be available to discuss the next steps to follow. Having dealt with many pet deaths, they’ll likely have experience in collecting bodies and will provide you with several choices. Options include private cremation, communal cremation, or burial at home or in a pet cemetery. Most vets have a close relationship with the local cremation center. They’ll arrange the body’s cremation and either dispose of the ashes or return them to you. The former is often the least expensive option. It can also cost extra for the vet to pick the body up. Therefore, you can drop the body off yourself. However, be aware this can be emotionally difficult.

If the dog isn’t yours
Check for a collar. These often have key information regarding their owner. However, these days, dog tracking is high-tech. Contact your local vet to see if they can identify if the dog has been chipped and inform the owner of the dog’s death. Or, if the dog doesn’t have an owner, you might contact animal control to dispose of the body. They’ll charge a nominal fee for the removal and disposal of the body, however. Other options include burial and burning. But, in urban and suburban neighborhoods that’s often illegal or frowned upon.

Call the cremation center
If you wish to talk to the cremation center directly, you can do so. They’ll have significant experience handling dead dogs. You’ll be able to choose between private and communal cremations. The former is more expensive and involves the dog being cremated alone. Whereas, in communal cremations, dogs are cremated in groups, and then the ashes are sprinkled in a natural setting. There are also options for cremated ashes, including urns, jewelry, and even artwork. However, most people opt to scatter the ash in a sentimental location.

Burying the dog is the cheapest way to dispose of the body. However, as mentioned, it’s not an option open to everyone. If you live in a dense neighborhood, there may be local legislation prohibiting the burial of animals. If you do choose to bury the animal, make sure you dig at least 3 feet down. It is also sensible to place stones over the grave to prevent scavengers from digging up the bones.

Other options
Pest control services and even some local authorities will dispose of dead dogs. New York’s Bureau of Sanitation offers to collect dead animals free of charge, for instance. However, authorities are likely to be most hesitant about collecting animals as large as dogs. Nevertheless, it can save significant time and money.
