Dead animalsMost small critters (squirrels, etc.) will usually be removed by crows, coyotes or other wildlife in less than a day. For small animals and birds, public health recommendations are:
Birds - double bag and put in trash.
Larger animals (skunks, raccoons, rabbits) - cover with lawn lime then with dirt to cut odor and decompose quickly. Residents may also contact a Problem Animal Control Officer who will dispose of animal for a fee.
Lost/Found Pets should be recorded in the stray book at the Wellesley Police Department, 781-235-1212. Also check with the kennel 508-653-5020.
Low cost rabies clinics are held on certain Sundays at Petco Stores in Needham or Natick. Call stores for times.
