Please fill out and submit this form if you would like an animal trap delivered to your residence. Please carefully review the program rules and regulations before requesting a trap.
Animal traps are delivered on Mondays only and are available on a first-come first-served basis. Residents may request an animal trap to be delivered to their residence. Requests can be made at any time by using this request form, or by visiting the Village Hall or by calling the Village at (847) 678-2550 during normal business hours. Traps that are requested by 4:00 PM on Friday will be delivered by the end of the day the following Monday whenever possible. In the rare instance that a trap is not delivered on Monday (perhaps due to a holiday) the trap will likely be delivered on Tuesday. If a requested trap is not delivered by the end of the day on Monday or Tuesday the resident should call the Village Hall to check on the status of their request.
The resident is responsible for properly placing and setting of the trap and its security. Residents assume the responsibility for replacement of the trap in the case of loss and the resident will be billed accordingly. Once an animal is trapped the resident must call the Village at (847) 678-2550 for pick up and removal. Village staff will need to know the name, address, phone number, and type of animal that has been trapped. Leyden Township will be informed and will then come by and retrieve the animal and trap. Under no circumstances should the resident dispose of any trapped animal on their own. The request for pick up must be within 24 hours of the animal becoming trapped. If by Thursday at 5:00 pm of the same week that the trap was delivered (loaned) to the resident there is no animal in the trap it will be removed by a Village representative on Friday of that same week. The resident must leave the trap by the driveway, or other location where Village staff can easily find it, for a Friday pickup. The resident may request the trap again for the following week, however, since traps are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis a trap may not be available depending on demand.
Select the Size of the Trap you are interested in Large or Small. Large traps would be used for animals like Raccoons, Possums, and Skunks. Small traps would be for Squirrels, and Chipmunks.
If you would like the trap left in a particular location at your home (such as "by the back door") please indicate those details here.
