Does AnimalKind trap and relocate wildlife?

AnimalKind accredited companies do not trap and relocate wildlife. When wildlife is trapped and relocated, animals often injure themselves and may die trying to escape a trap. Relocated animals have to set up a new home, and may starve trying to find food or get into fights with other animals over territory.

When you trap animals, you also risk separating a mother from her babies. Even if you move an entire family, a mother may abandon her young due to pressure to find food and care for the babies. To remove an animal, an AnimalKind wildlife and rodent control company will use animal-friendly wildlife-proofing and one-way doors instead of trapping/relocating. In the rare situation that an animal is at immediate risk of harm and must be live-trapped, an AnimalKind company will release the animal in its home range.
