Illinois Community Unites to Offer Closure: Deceased Pets Cataloged for Grieving Owners


Share post:

NAPERVILLE, IL – A heartfelt endeavor is underway, as the Naperville community extends a helping hand to pet owners in need. 

Deceased animals, once left unaccounted for, are now being cataloged to offer closure and support during difficult times. This week, a surge in discovered pets highlights the importance of this initiative. If you suspect a lost pet may be among them, reach out to Naperville’s Animal Control at (630) 420-6178 for assistance in reuniting with your beloved companion.

The inventory details the animal’s type, date of discovery, and location, streamlining the process for worried owners seeking answers.

Private property incidents involving deceased wildlife call for the homeowner’s responsibility in removal. The option to double-bag the animal for disposal or engage a private nuisance animal service is available. For deceased pets, homeowners can explore dignified disposal methods through their veterinarian or cremation services.

Public streets witnessing such incidents prompt a call to Naperville’s Customer Care Center at (630) 420-6187. If the situation poses a road hazard, the Naperville Police Department can be reached at (630) 420-6666.

Even in the case of stray animals, compassion prevails. To report a deceased stray cat or dog on private property or the roadway, contact Animal Control at (630) 420-6178, pressing 0 for prompt assistance.
