You can report dead animals on a public street or area, including highways, parks, and in large bodies of water.
Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) does not normally pick up or remove dead animals from private property. If the dead animal did not show signs of rabies or if it did not scratch or bite a person or a pet, it is your responsibility as the property owner to dispose of the dead animal.
You can bring the remains of a dead pet to an Animal Care Centers of NYC drop-off location to be cremated for $50.
You can also put a dead animal out for pickup by the Department of Sanitation on your garbage day. The remains must be placed in a heavy-duty black plastic bag or double plastic bag and a note should be taped to the bag stating its contents (for example, "dead dog" or "dead cat"). Animals that may have been rabid should not be put in the trash.
Sanitation only removes dead deer from private residential property. Sanitation does not remove any other dead animals from private residential property.
If you are a private property owner, you can bury dead pets on your property.
