Our company made it a responsibility to handle the dead animal problems on private properties. We are a family-owned company founded by a couple who used to work in an animal rescue facility. They noticed the needs of the public on the proper removal and disposal of the animals. When they left the rescue center, they decided to open this company to deliver a safer and more comprehensive animal carcass removal service. Our services include a free inspection, removal and disposal of the dead animal, sanitation, decontamination, deodorization, and prevention. We can also carry out remediation for the damaged part of your house. We have the resources to handle dead pets; if the pet is something that the customers don't recognize, we will try to identify the animal and find a microchip and collar. We will then store them in a freezer for a specific period to allow the real owner to reclaim their pet's body. Upon the client's request, we can arrange the cremation of the animal and provide you a proper urn. We can offer same-day and emergency services without any additional costs. Our people will be there as promised to solve your problem permanently. Call us today and receive your free estimates.

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.
Phoenix Dead Animal Tip: Why Do Animals Die Inside a House?
As humans continue to encroach into wild habitats, human/wildlife conflict has been on the rise. Wild animals like raccoons, squirrels, opossums, and rats, among many others, have learned to reside in attics, under crawl spaces, in chimneys, and walls. It follows logically, that from time to time, these animals may die in the house. Several reasons may cause the death of an animal in your house. In this post, we explore the most common reasons.
Wild animals depend on their natural immune system to heal their wounds. Sometimes, these wounds are so severe that they lead to death. There are numerous reasons why a nuisance critter might get injured. Common reasons include attacks from predators, or getting hit by a vehicle, among many others. If you notice large wounds or broken bones in a carcass, then the animal most likely died from an injury.
Some people make use of poison for rodent control. However, unintended wildlife sometimes consumes the poison. Poison damages the internal organs of an animal when consumed. This results in internal bleeding. As the animal suffers in anguish, it recedes to a secluded part of your house, where it eventually dies. Because poisoning is highly inhumane, you should NOT use it for wildlife control.
Wild animals sometimes get stuck within your house. For instance, you might seal the entry hole, thereby trapping a squirrel in your attic. A raccoon might fall inside a wall, and find it impossible to get out. Animals also get stuck in chimneys. A stuck animal will eventually die of dehydration and starvation.
If you have a female raccoon in your attic, chimney, or crawlspace, there’s a strong chance it has built its nest there to raise its young ones. From time to time, the mother will leave her pups in search of food. During this period, she might meet her demise in the outside world. Without the care and protection of their mother, the pups will eventually die of starvation in your house. The same is true of other animals that raise their babies in human settlements.
Animals take time before they adapt to their environment. When animals are relocated to new environments, they are unlikely to survive because they don’t know their surroundings. They don’t know where to get food from because they haven’t mastered the terrain. Even if they do survive, they have to deal with the new temperature. If their new environment is too cold, they may die because they haven’t found a way to keep their body warm. That’s why the relocation of wildlife is frowned upon, and if it must be done, it should only be done by a wildlife removal expert.
Some animals are territorial and will fight off male competitors for mating rights. When animals get into a fight, they expose themselves to the risk of injuries. Under ideal circumstances, one of the animals will surrender once it notices it cannot win the fight. However, in some cases, the fights are so vicious that they lead to instant death or serious injury. A seriously injured animal may return to your house, where it will eventually die.
Animals also fall sick. But unlike humans that have easy access to medications and hospitals, animals have to rely solely on their body’s immune system to wade off the illness. In a situation where the sickness prevails, the animal eventually dies. Common signs of sick animals include bloody feces, fur falling off, and vomiting. If you observe these signs beside a carcass, then the animal most likely died from a disease.
Death is a natural stage in the life cycle of all living organisms. When an animal grows old enough, it will die. Different animals have different life spans. Rats live for about one to two years. In the wild, raccoons live for about five to 20 years. Opossums live for about two to four years. Therefore, an animal may die in your house due to old age. As a precaution, do not come in direct contact with the carcass of a dead animal because it can potentially transmit harmful diseases to you. Ensure that you wear the right protective gear before getting rid of the carcass, or seek help from a wildlife professional.
