Aside from the city of Fairfax County animal services or Fairfax County Animal Control, free dead animal removal is sometimes offered by government agencies that go by names such as public works department, department of transportation, environmental services, division of street maintenance, sanitation department, etc. Don't call the Fairfax County police department or Fairfax County SPCA or humane society. Click here for Dead Pet Body Removal in Fairfax County. Usually you can put dead animal carcasses in refuse containers - aka garbage cans, although sometimes that's frowned upon. I'd do it for smaller animals under 20 lbs for sure though. For larger animals maybe call the sanitation dept. or call the number listed above. The removal of large livestock animals such as a dead horse or dead cow is usually handled by private enterprises. But in all cases in Fairfax County, if the body is on private property, the removal of dead animals is handled by the citizen or by a private company, such as ours listed below.

Hi there! We’re Fairfax County Dead Animal, a company that specialises in the control and removal of live and dead animals from business and domestic properties in Virginia. We are the leading experts in locating hard-to-find dead animals, with no job too big or small for us to take on. Our technicians are trained to the highest level in each animal that you are likely to encounter in your home, including bats, birds, rats, mice, snakes, skunks, opossums, raccoons, and many more. They carry a wide array of state-of-the-art tools and equipment, too – all of which help to diagnose and solve the problem in as quick a time as possible. We know that the disruption a dead wild critter causes, from smell to the growth of black mould from excess moisture, and even biological concerns that could be potentially very dangerous for the household or workforce – and that’s why we make it our mission to make the process simple and quick. It starts with an inspection, before location and removal is carried out. Repairs and restorations come after that, along with decontamination and sanitation; and preventative measures are installed to prevent future intrusions. Carcasses are cremated and always handled in a safe, legal and respectful way. We can also offer you a cremation service for your beloved pet. Get in touch with us on 571-347-9830 to learn how we could protect your Virginia home.
