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.

Minneapolis Dead Animal Tip: How to dispose of a dead cat

The disposal of dead cats should be considered as soon as the death of the critters is confirmed. There are numerous options of dead cat disposal to consider. Let’s go through the dead cat disposal methods.

Home burials
Dead cats could be buried at home. This method of disposal of dead cats applies to both pets and strays. Home burials as a dead cat disposal method have the appeal of cost-effectiveness and safety. Minimal costs are incurred with pet burials as they simply require digging a pit and placing the cat in it. The cat could be placed in a container or coffin if it is a pet.

Home burials are regulated by the law, which determines whether or not a location is suitable for the burial of the remains of a cat. Lands on rented properties are typically unsuitable for home burials. The laws also specify the depth of the pit for the burial. The basic requirement for the pits for home burials is that they are two feet deep. The remains of the cat are to be placed in a non-biodegradable material before the coffin or burial container. If the local regulations allow, home burials are an attractive option for disposing of cat remains.

Cremation is an efficient method for getting rid of dead cats, both pets and strays. With this method, all hazardous materials are completely eliminated. Owners of pet cats also get their ashes after the cremation.

The cremation of dead cats is available as a professional service. With access to an incinerator, cremation can also be a DIY measure.

Cremation can be a readily available method of disposal of carcasses for pet owners. Professional cremation services are available even during emergencies. Professional cremation services are available for pet owners that do not want to deal with the process of getting rid of the remains of their pets.

Pet cemeteries
Pet cats could be buried in cemeteries. These cemeteries offer burial plots and other burial services targeted at pet owners. This method is suitable for memorializing pets. Pet cemeteries can offer services that include the pickup of the pets.

The remains of pet cats could be disposed of in garbage bins if the cat is small. The cat should be properly wrapped with a non-biodegradable material to avoid the seepage of fluids and possible infections. Be sure that the sanitation service provider accepts dead animal remains before disposing of dead cats in the trash.

Like other dead animals, cats begin to decompose after a few days of death. The decomposing remains will produce bad odors and attract other pests. This is why the disposal plans should be made as soon as possible.

Pet owners struggling with the loss of their beloved companion could get family and friends to handle the disposal of the remains. They could also call a local vet to handle the process too.

The disposal of cats should be effective with the necessary safety precautions in mind. The remains shouldn’t be handled with bare hands. Gloves must be worn at all times. Masks to prevent the inhalation of hazardous materials should also be worn. Overalls should also be worn to protect clothes.

An important aspect of the disposal of dead cats is wrapping them in a suitable material. The remains should be wrapped in sealable plastic bags irrespective of the disposal method being applied.

When disposing of dead cats, it is especially important to confirm local regulations. Local regulations will specify the applicable disposal method. Confirm the guidelines that apply to the different disposal methods.

The efficient disposal of dead cats prevents disease outbreaks. The efficient disposal of the critters should also be carried out before the remains begin to decompose. We have highlighted numerous methods of disposal of dead cats. If you are disposing of a pet cat, look out for the right combination of cost-effectiveness, general efficiency, sentimental value, and availability. Sentimental value won't matter much if it is not a pet cat. The focus, in this case, will be on general efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
