The Humane Rescue Alliance receives calls every day from residents needing assistance with wildlife conflicts. In instances where there is a legitimate threat to health and safety, HRA will dispatch a trained Animal Care & Control officer to assess the situation. However, in most cases, simple steps can be taken to not only evict the animals but to also aid in the prevention of re-occurring conflicts.
