Removal of Dead Animals

We provide a free service for the removal of dead animals from all accessible areas of the highway. We do not remove from inaccessible locations (i.e. rooftops, waterways etc).

Our dead pet policy is to take the pet to the vets and check for micro chips. If they are chipped then the vet will then contact the owner.
