Removing dead animals from private land

Removal of dead animals from private land is the responsibility of the landowner, but we can offer this service for a small charge. Please contact us online to request this service.

What happens if the animal is a pet?

We will scan the bodies of domestic pets for microchips and contact the owner if possible.

If your pet is missing, please contact us online to provide details so we can contact you if a pet matching the description is brought in.
