Kind and Genuinely Concerned

“This was our first time using ABC Humane and it was a very positive experience. The office staff and technicians were very friendly and listened to our story. Two men arrived at an even earlier than the projected time. They were very professional and knowledgeable. Because the raccoon was still in the yard (which they identified as probably having distemper) they were able to swiftly put it in the trap. They seemed kind and genuinely concerned about the raccoon. I recommend them and would use them again –hopefully it won’t be neccessary :)”

Animal Relocation in Illinois

Some healthy animals may be relocated alive onto private lands with a good water supply and an abundance of the animal’s natural food. For instance, this means that relocation sites for flying squirrels must feature mature oak trees so that the squirrels can feed on their acorns and live in their hollow cavities. 

Private landowners with suitable sites should volunteer their properties to receive relocated wildlife. All release sites must be on private lands within 40 miles of where the animals were captured to comply with state laws. Consideration must be taken not to exceed the natural carrying capacity of any piece of land. Consideration for the impact of released species on properties adjacent to the release site must be considered. 

Since the State of Illinois authorizes only select species of wildlife to be released, and only onto private land within 40 miles of capture, ongoing effort must be made on the part of wildlife control organizations to secure new release sites through arrangement with private landowners. Unless landowners cooperate with the relocation of wildlife to their properties, species that are allowed by law to be released will not have accommodations available to them.  

Private landowners who wish to offer their private lands for the release of relocated wildlife should contact

Without the hospitality that you offer to wildlife, reintroduction to their natural habitat would not be possible. Thank you for your support.
