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.

Colorado Springs Dead Animal Tip: Dead Pet Disposal Cost

One of the last things on your mind when a family pet has passed away, typically, is the cost that it entails. While most pet burials can be done easily, including burying the beloved pet in your backyard, often this is not enough. Sometimes, laws prevent the owner from being able to bury their pet in their backyard and, sometimes, due to space or the fact that it is a rental property, it is just not a path that can be taken. One of the biggest questions, as well, in taking care of your pet after their death is how much the various services might cost, as well as what further arrangements can be made.

One of the first, and most popular, options when looking to take care of your deceased pet, would be pet cremation. Most vet offices will usually have a relationship with local crematories, and will be able to walk you through the arrangements for your pets, as well as sometimes being able to keep your pet for a few days while you make the arrangements. Generally, for an individual cremation- meaning, only your pet- the base cost will range from $55 for a small animal- such as a kitten or a bird- to $300 and up for a large animal- generally meaning a large dog.

For an additional cost, these crematories will also often offer a variety of urns, boxes, or figurines to choose from as well. These will generally run you from between $50 to $100 for a basic urn, made of brass, bronze, or enamel. Depending on how elaborate you would like these to be, though, a shaped, wax-casted one will generally run at least $1,000. An engraved name plate, commemorating your pet, will often cost a little extra, as well, but generally stays between $10 and $25.

Another great option for your pet’s final resting place is a pet cemetery. Often, there are many companies that allow you a pet burial, giving you a place to visit your pet anytime you wish, as well as offering headstones and other decorations to show how much you loved Fido. Prices on these burials depend heavily on how decorative you want your pet’s grave to be, but generally will range from a few hundred dollars all the way up to several thousand. If you are unsure of where to find a pet burial service in your area, you can always visit the International Association of Pet Cemeteries and Crematories, or, alternatively, ask your veterinarian’s office for information.

While these are only a few of the options to deal with your pet’s body when it has passed on, there are many other options that are often included. Some crematories and pet burial services will charge an additional charge to pick the pet up, either after-hours or during the weekend.

It is always hard when a beloved family pet passes, but you should rest assured that most of the companies that will handle your pet’s remains will understand your grief, and will help walking you through the entire process, making sure that you are happy with it every step of the way.
