Live Trap Rental

Animal Services offers live traps to rent for the easy capture of stray or feral cats and dogs. These traps do not injure the animals that are caught.

To rent a trap for cats: Come into KCASE during our open hours with your driver's license. You will leave a $50.00 deposit (cash or check), which you will get back when the trap is returned in good condition. The rental fee for the trap is $15.00/week.

To rent a trap for dogs: KCASE will deliver a large dog trap for stray dogs which our Officers cannot capture by other methods. Please call to report a stray that is elusive or hard to capture. These traps are offered at no charge and are used at KCASE discretion only.

Kalamazoo County can only accept and pickup animals from within Kalamazoo County. Out of County residents must refer to your local Animal Control Department for assistance.

We are not able to capture animals from within walls, chimneys, fireplaces, crawl spaces or other hard to get to areas. If you are having a serious animal problem and you don't believe one live trap will help, please call wildlife or nuisance animal removal service by referencing the yellow pages of the phone book.

For illegal poaching, trapping or hunting, sightings of cougars or other wildlife concerns, please contact the DNR at 269-685-6851.

Payment Methods

Fees must be paid in full at time of trap return, in person. Phone and internet transactions are not available at this time.

Fees may be paid via Credit/Debit Cards, Checks (no starter checks, must be numbered 1000 or over), Money Orders, Cashier's Checks, or Cash.
