The Importance of Humane Animal Control

When it comes to wildlife interaction, Shumaker’s Animal Control believes in providing humane treatment. Our team is committed to using live traps to trap and remove animals before relocating them to an appropriate wildlife area. 

Safe for Animals

When a wild animal enters your home, you have three main choices: hire a pest control company, manage the situation on your own, or hire a humane animal control company.

Pest control companies use poisonous chemicals, traps, and other inhumane ways to eliminate mice, rats, and other wild animals. Choosing to handle the infestation on your own with traps and pesticides is not only ineffective but can cause a great load of pain and suffering to the wild animal. 

A humane animal control company will handle the situation without causing unnecessary harm or pain to the wild animal. 

Before making your final decision, try to remember that the wild animal did not invade your home trying to cause problems – it was simply looking for a source of shelter and food. By choosing the humane option, you can help keep the animal alive and return it outside, where it belongs.

The Importance of Humane Animal Control 2Conserve the Ecosystem 

All animals play a critical part of the ecosystem. Inhumane animal control practices can lead to a lack of biodiversity, which can result in species becoming endangered or extinct.

Humane animal control, on the other hand, protects these wild animals, and thus protects our ecosystem. All animals are trapped and relocated to a pre-approved wildlife area where they will thrive. 

If a wild animal is not relocated successfully, it can be extremely dangerous or deadly for them. They might become disoriented or attacked by other animals in the area.

Long-term Solution

The most important tidbit to note about humane animal control is that it is a long-term solution. Inhumanely killing a wild animal will only get rid of the current problem momentarily. In order to fully solve the problem, the root of the issue needs to be addressed. 

This means fixing any possible entry points and minimizing behaviors that are likely to draw a wild animal onto your property and into your home. If these actions are not taken, then it is only a matter of time before another creature finds its way inside.

A humane animal control approach is able to fix the current from the start without endangering any current or future wildlife.
