There are many species of wildlife present in our communities. Animal Services only handles wildlife related cases involving rabies and matters of public safety. Click on the graphic below to visit NC Wildlife Resources Commission (NCWRC) for information and to find assistance with wildlife issues: 


The NC Wildlife Helpline Call Center was developed as part of a collaborative effort between the Customer Service Section, Wildlife Management, Education, and Enforcement divisions.  Its purpose is to provide the highest quality customer service possible by offering the public a direct line to trained biologists who have expertise in handling human-wildlife issues such as nuisance complaints, disease concerns, or what to do when someone finds orphaned young. The Helpline Team will also be collecting important data about what types of calls are being received and from where in the state – information that will be invaluable in helping staff target outreach and education efforts moving forward.  The call center is housed in the Customer Service Section at WRC Headquarters, and will be taking calls during normal business hours (8 am – 5 pm, Monday – Friday).
