The Larimer Humane Society does not pick up dead animals in unincorporated Larimer County (outside of city/town limits). This includes picking up animals in public areas, such as public roads and parks, and dead animals on private property.

What to do if you have an encounter with a sick or dead animal

  • Call the Larimer Humane Society's Animal Control at 970-266-3647, extension #7, to report a bat, skunk, or other encounters with an animal that looks sick.
  • Never touch the animal, even if it appears dead
  • Try to contain a bat in the room where it is found. Close the entrances to the room or place a box over it.
  • If the bat, skunk or other aggressive animal has bitten or scratched you, wash the affected area immediately and call your doctor as soon as possible.
