Aside from the city of San Antonio animal services or Bexar County Animal Control, free dead animal removal is sometimes offered by government agencies that go by names such as public works department, department of transportation, environmental services, division of street maintenance, sanitation department, etc. Don't call the San Antonio police department or San Antonio SPCA or humane society. Click here for Dead Pet Body Removal in San Antonio. Usually you can put dead animal carcasses in refuse containers - aka garbage cans, although sometimes that's frowned upon. I'd do it for smaller animals under 20 lbs for sure though. For larger animals maybe call the sanitation dept. or call the number listed above. The removal of large livestock animals such as a dead horse or dead cow is usually handled by private enterprises. But in all cases in San Antonio, if the body is on private property, the removal of dead animals is handled by the citizen or by a private company, such as ours listed below.

If you have a dead animal in your house, such as a dead rat in the wall or a dead raccoon in the attic or a dead skunk under your porch, you can hire us to remove it. We are a private company, not a free service. Call us anytime at 210-460-5569 to schedule an appointment for today!
It won't be enough to mask the scent of the dead animal. If the carcass is not removed, it will continue to attract parasites such as maggots. The parasites that used to feed on it will look for another host, and the next likely victim could be you. Dead animals can also be the source of disease, and some of them can be life-threatening. We will be removing the dead animal for you at a price that you can afford. We will use a non-invasive method when extracting the dead body. However, there are instances when it will require dismantling the structure, such as cutting through your walls. Regardless, we will make sure that we will fix it and return your wall to its previous state. Upon calling us, we encourage you to provide us with the details we need to give you with a more accurate quote with no obligation. We may not handle dead animals found in public places since that is the local animal department task. With our service, we will get rid of every mess left behind by the dead animal, including the odor, fur, urine, and droppings. We are a company certified in handling biohazard materials and dispose of them in accordance with the law.
