All wildlife issues such as deer, rabbits, raccoons, birds etc. are handled by Maryland Natural Resources Police–410-548-7070.

Local law enforcement can handle emergency animal complaints after hours and will contact with animal control for advice and response if needed.  The animal control officers will follow up on these after hours calls on the next working day.

We can not handle animal control issues in the City limits of Salisbury because of legalities as per the Wicomico County Department of Law since they have their own animal control ordinances and officers.  You can contact City of Salisbury Animal Control at 410-548-3165.
