Aside from the city of Tacoma animal services or Pierce 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 Tacoma police department or Tacoma SPCA or humane society. Click here for Dead Pet Body Removal in Tacoma. 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 Tacoma, 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.
