Government animal control services don’t handle wildlife removal. Best case scenario, the city or county animal control office will redirect you to a free animal removal service that will maybe lend you a trap for you to install. Once the raccoon is trapped, they will take the trap back with the raccoon in it. Alas, this means that you’re left with disinfecting the area occupied by the raccoon, searching for and removing by hand any baby raccoons, repairing the damage caused by the raccoon, and identifying and sealing the raccoon’s access points. You can still call city or county animal control offices for issues with domestic animals, but wildlife control has been almost completely privatized.

Feel free to give your city or county animal control offices a call in order to inquire about free raccoon removal services, there’s nothing wrong with it. If you think that the raccoon is ill, and are worried about its health, you can also mention this aspect to them.

Even if you can’t get free raccoon removal services, you can still spend some time researching affordable wildlife control companies that service you area. Just make sure that their price includes the whole package of services, not only removing the troublemaker. This means that the wildlife removal professional(s) who would come to remove the animal will also check for and remove any offspring, perform an inspection of the area and seal shut any critter access points, and preferably also take care of the necessary repairs and cleanup.
