Frank caught a raccoon that took another officer almost 2 weeks to catch. He’s very professional and knows his work!!
- Erica Stokes. 5/30/2020
I was very pleased to welcome Frank into my home on Friday morning. Someone in the house is immuno-suppressed and I was a little worried about letting a stranger in. However, Frank was very professional, prompt and courteous. He masked-up immediately and wore booties, too! There are a lot of feelings in the world right now, and I so appreciate that he is sympathetic to the current situation.
Now for the problem, there may be something in my ceiling and there may not be, but it feels as though I have a responsive partner in the quest to discover the problem. I knew the cost up front. He answered all of my questions, left detailed instructions, and told me to call immediately, day or night. He told me he would be stopping again this week to check on things. I look forward to his visit and a positive outcome. I would absolutley recommend Frank to anyone with a pest problem.

- Riss Flex. 5/20/2020
I normally never leave reviews, but for Frank I just had to. When I say he gave the best customer service, I am ready to go buy some possums just for him to come save me again. (Lol)His personality was amazing! His calm presence made me feel comfortable and confident in his work. He came quickly and tackled the problem right away. He even went out of his way to make me more comfortable by checking the possible places the possum could have came from and gave me advice on how to prevent further problems. I highly recommend this company. 5 stars across the board! Make sure you ask for Frank. Very impressed by his excellent service.

- Robin Smith. 5/19/2020
Bryan was very knowledgeable in his work. He was very professional.
- Donnelle Horsey. 5/18/2020
Frank arrived quickly, with a courtesy text when he was on his way! On site he was very professional, was very knowledgeable and able to assess our squirrel situation fast (even pointed out a hole we didn't know about!), and helped us determine the best place to put our trap. After getting all the squirrels out of the attic, we're also going to have them come out to close up the holes. Overall would definitely recommend!

- queeda sistrunk. 5/15/2020
We had a bird stuck in our chimney and so I called animal control. Officer Bryan came to our house and he was the nicest guy. He went out of his way to assure us everything would be ok. He stayed so calm. I was nervous but he put me at ease. He went out of his way to speak to my granddaughter and explain what he was doing and told her about his job and even told her when she is older she could go on a run with them. I can’t say enough good about this man. God bless him for saving that bird and taking him to find a new home. I would highly recommend him. Thankyou,Officer Bryan.
- Diane dwyer. 5/4/2020
Had a problem with squirrels in my roof, called them and they came out same day. Laid traps down. Within two days we caught the squirrel and i haven't had problem since. Also, they patched up holes that i had in my roof so i wouldnt have anymore trouble. Simple and affordable pricing. Definitely would call them again if i have any more problems.
Also want to give big thanks to their workers Frank and Brianna for all the help they provided!
- Harvey Bivins. 4/29/2020
Frank removed a nest and repaired a hole in my siding. He was incredibly professional, arriving quickly and doing a great job with everything.

Even during these crazy times, they were refreshingly reliable.
- Matthew Haley. 4/20/2020
Needed HELP for a groundhog! Little baby got itself caught in a netting Sunday evening.

Very reasonable price, too!
Thank you Brianna!!!
- Laura Wallace. 4/17/2020
Frank just left my home and he was awesome! He got to my house 10-15 min after I made the initial call to receive service. He was very helpful and educated me and my family about wildlife. Gave us a sense of relief by insuring us that they available 24/7. He also has a great personality.Even though at the time of my visit he didn’t find anything, but he did set a trap. I still received great customer service!! Thanks Frank.

- Emilia Kristinus Choate. 4/8/2020
Great professional service. I will definitely recommend to family and friends. The absolute best service-oriented family friendly, wildlife control. Officer Jackson was pleasant and experienced. He took the time to explain the process and addressed the issue immediately. I am very happy 😊.
- Lisa Frazier. 4/3/2020
I can’t thank Bryan enough. I was a nervous wreck almost in tears I wouldn’t even come down my steps. It was a baby possum in my house and he came right in and had it out in less than 5 minutes. He searched my entire house making sure that was the only one and helped me secure my basement where it had got in at. He was so patient despite how anxious and scared i was. He made sure I felt safe before leaving. If I ever need them again I need them to send Bryan back
- Bre Golds. 3/30/2020
I called because I had a pet that passed away. They came right away, expressed condolences and showed compassion. I am appreciative of the service they provided me....
- Tracy Ellis. 3/16/2020

- Ginny Kephart. 2/23/2020

- E Tru. 2/15/2020
Frank was prompt, knowledgeable and easy to understand. Very reassuring. Delaware County animal control very accessible ,polite and honest.
- Teresa Mitch. 2/11/2020
We knew that our 15yr old long hair domesticated female cat was on her way to leaving us. We were deciding on where to bring her to help her crossover Rainbow Bridge. And therefore was contacting different locations to obtain pricing, arrangements, options ect….recalling a previous reference made on social media we contacted Delaware County Animal Control for pricing for Cremation.
From the very first question on the phone with Ron who was very patient, compassionate and empathetic as well as super kind, to making “that call” when our beloved Rainee passed away on Sunday in the evening on March 8, 2020 on her time to crossover Rainbow Bridge and was promptly picked up by Bryan at our home. He could not have been more kind. Truly. Bryan was loving, compassionate, a true professional with a huge heart…he was respectful to not only Rainee but to my husband and myself as well as our surviving furbabies.
Thank you so very much for having this service available. We are thankful as well as grateful.
While this most certainly is a very sad and difficult time….going through Delaware County Animal Control was the best decision for the aftercare of our beloved Rainee…..Thank You from the bottom of our hearts. Our family cannot express it enough of how much we appreciate both Ron and Bryan who not only brought humanity to this experience but made this heart wrenching time…softer…we are overwhelmed by their kindness and highly recommend Delaware County Animal Control for whatever they offer for any of your animal needs.
With profound gratitude,
The Glover Family
- Deb Glover. 2/10/2020
Thank you for your prompt service!! We had a deceased fox stuck in our back yard through the fence. Frank came out did the removal and sanitized the area. Very knowledgeable of the area with animals and seasons of what to look out for. I would call them again if I have any problems in the future.
- gregory Martyn. 2/8/2020
This company is excellent! Squirrels were running amok in my mom’s ceiling to the point where I couldn’t go back to sleep. I call Delaware County Animal Control at 6am and within the hour, Frank showed up. Frank is very knowledgeable and took his time. After he set the trap and left, the door was triggered and the squirrel ran out, I called the company and within 15 minutes Frank was back at the house ( even though he was supposed to be off duty). Thanks Frank.
Dillon and Brianna are great also. Came out to pick up and replace traps.
Fingers crossed this will solve all the issue.
- Andie Quarry. 2/1/2020
Very fast and professional, honest about findings in the house I’m renting. Dylan was great and very detailed with explanation with what needs to be done in order for my safety in my home.
- Lee Ming. 1/26/2020
So me and my fiancé had a rodent problem, we didn’t know what it was, but we knew it was big. and with a new born (6weeks old) we could not wait or play with such a matter Soooo serious. With it being a Sunday and calling every major company Terminix, Orkin, locals ... all told me they could not help me on a Sunday and I would have to wait until Monday. Frank came and saved the day on a SUNDAY! In a matter of 20-30mins, he caught the rodent and left. He was terrifically timed, well mannered and respectable. Definitely recommend.
. Thank you Frank
- Alexis Holland. 0/26/2020
Frank and Brian showed up today to help us get rid of a squirrel that had been making itself at home in one of our walls. As soon as they arrived, they took one look at the outside of our house and pointed out where they thought the squirrel was getting in. We walked through the house and Frank and Brian laid out their plan for removal and prevention and set a trap. Within 2 hours, we caught a squirrel and Delaware County Animal Control helped us coordinate with a contractor to patch the hole and prevent more critters from getting in. Next time we have an issue Delaware County Animal Control will be the very first call we make.
- Sam Musselman. 0/24/2020
I've had a rat situation for the past month. They are in my ceiling and we were not sure what they were because we have no access to the area. I called Delaware County Animal Control and initially Briana and Chris came out to access the situation within an hour! (Orkin made me wait weeks). They were great and really did detective work to figure out what sort of animal was up there. But I am most thankful for Dylan- once I confirmed the rodent was actually a rat, he came out on his DAY OFF to help me set up traps and make a game plan to catch the rodents living in my ceiling. Thank you!
- Danielle Damore. 0/10/2020
Thank you so much for coming so quick on New Year's Eve to help me when my cat passed away. Briana and Chrissy were very compassionate and helpful during a sad situation. Thank you for offering a great service.
- Marsha Impriano. 0/5/2020
So listen to this. I got the day off work so I go do some shopping. So I come home and I hear a noise on my porch. Dont think much of it until I come back out. Now man I got this big ole raccoon chillin looking at me like it was his place. So I'm like I aint messing with no raccoon. So I call Delaware County Animal Control and immediately boom the send out this girl. Now Im not going to lie I was thinking a girl really? But man was I wrong. This girl Brianna came to my house and assured me all was well and she will gladly take care of this for me. Well that she did. Within minutes Brianna had that raccoon out my house and in her van. I cant thank you enough Brianna for your professionalism courteousness and overall great work. You can trust DCAC and their team like Brianna to handle all your crazy animal needs.

- Natalie Pierre Vertus. 8/29/2019
We have an exterminator on contract and they wouldn't do anything for us when squirrels started chewing through the vinyl siding and into the walls of our house. Someone recommend Delaware County Animal Control and it's been 1 day since we called them. They have caught and removed 3 squirrels already. Each time we've seen one in a trap, we call them and they come and remove it quickly and reset the trap. Excellent service so far!
- christie molenaar. 8/26/2019
Frank and Gil are great. They come within a short time of a phone call to retrieve the squirrels in the cage. They are friendly and also respectful of the animals they catch. There was a problem with the cage and Frank came and changed it out with another. I would recommend their service.
- Anne Bennett-Mangano. 8/26/2019
Great customer service. I had my dog cremated and they was so patient with me and worked with my time frame so that they could drop off her ashes.

- Cheryl Hamm. 8/11/2019
Frank is awesome. We have raccoons getting into our roof and so far we have caught 4 raccoons in 4 days with his trap set-up. Soon the neighborhood will be rid of these critters and the neighborhood cats will find peace. They don’t destroy them either, just relocated them to a more raccoon friendly area.
- Scott M.. 8/10/2019
Frank and Dylan have done a wonderful job. Very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Great customer service !

Frank, is one of the beat animal control people I have ever meant in my life. I woke up to a live bat hanging in my living room. I called Delware County Animal Control and they came right away. I explained to him what was going on and he came in the apartment. He spotted the bat hanging around and got it. Thank you so much. The price was reasonable and he is every professional.

Frank was very nice and helped to move the snake we found in our office!
- Aleaya Phillips. 7/30/2019
Frank was great. Response was quick.The injured skunk was not in the feral house as expected. I watched for it and it showed at 10 pm. Frank said to call any time I saw the stunk. He started out immediately. He got the skunk. I was worried about paralytic rabies. He reassured me that the skunk looked injured. A great relief. I like the company because the will try to save and relocate the animal instead of killing it. They were also great in not charging me twice. I recommend this company and would ask for Frank.
- Elizabeth Scott. 7/28/2019
I had one of their men come out get rid of a monster Nest that was in my tree on my front lawn. It was raining when he got there and he said he was going to do the job anyway. Sure enough he removed the nest from my tree I even trimmed the tree so it looked better and it did before. I would definitely recommend this company.
- Kevin Skoczen. 7/23/2019
Great staff, excellent setup
- Mark Hall. 7/20/2019
It was 1am and Frank was extremely helpful in getting a bat out of my house. We saw a second one but apparently must’ve flew out before Frank came. He was fast, professional and helpful. Fee is nothing compared to having a peace of mind.
- Carol Arias. 7/18/2019
I came home from a hard nights work at 12am only to walk into my bathroom and find a BAT sitting on the light looking at me. Being in the line of work I’m in I fear very little, however this thing showed me the smallest of things can send me running in the other direction. SO I had to call in the pros and Frank was the greatest. Armed with just a 32oz Wawa soda cup he quickly captured the winged bandit and restored clamminess back within my home. This was the 3rd Bat for me since moving in the area less then three years ago and I want to thank DCAC for always sending help in a timely manner. But I Pray I won’t be needing them for anymore Bat removals anytime soon. Thanks Frank you were the greatest!!
- Erica Foat. 7/17/2019
Frank took great care of removing the dead stray respectfully and humanely. I recommend him for any animal issues.

I have worked with Rahn on many projects at Delaware County Animal Control over the past 21 years from organizing the County's first animal rescue unit that responded to house fires and injured and trapped animals all around Delaware County. To the warrent unit that assisted the police by controlling the dogs of suspects being arrested. Rahn has always been there to stand up for the rights of the four legged members of our family without a voice.

Came, got the animal seemed like a nice dude and did his job right
- Joe Dancona. 8/25/2018
After much hesitation I called Animal Control this summer about a Ground Hog residence under my Garage. I like animals, I just don't like them digging under the building's foundation! Chris returned my call and came out promptly to get things set up-cage, bait , etc. She was knowledgable and friendly and gave me some insight into the situation- that is groundhogs & their habits. I ended up calling on 4th of JuLy, as we caught one and she came out within 2 hours to retrieve it. After that there were 2 more calls over the next month...seems the ground hog had family /relatives living there as well. Each time Chris came out often within an hour to pick up the catch and put out another empty cage. I was impressed with the promptness and her positive attitude regarding animals. Payment was easy and I will not hesitate to call if I have any wildlife problems in the future.
- Diane Trotta. 10/22/2017
