Humane Live Trap Rentals
Citizens or business owners of the City of Weatherford, Hudson Oaks, Aledo and Willow Park have the option to place a deposit for a live trap for animals at large or nuisance animals. The deposit is $50, for a period of not longer than two weeks. At that time, the trap will be returned, and if found to be in the same working condition, the deposit will be refunded. We have a limited amount of traps and may not always have one available when you need it, if this happens you will be asked to call periodically to check availability. If a trap is not available you are always welcome to purchase your own trap and our officers will service them.
Residents of the unincorporated Parker County and the City of Springtown need to call 817-594-8845 to check availability. Rental fees may differ.
How Does a Humane Trap Work?
A humane trap is a cage with a door on one end which can be lifted up and set in place with a small hook. The door is connected to a flat metal trip plate on the bottom of the trap. The trap is baited by placing food at the back of the trap, past the trip plate. When an animal enters the trap, the weight of its paw on the trip plate triggers the door to shut behind it. The trip plate is far enough away from the door so that the animal is not harmed.
