Humane Choice Wildlife Services is a woman-owned business, operated by Melissa Van Siclen.

Melissa has worked with animals her entire adult life. She used to train and care for horses professionally, and has operated a mobile pet care business since the 1980's.

It was her love for nature and compassion for animals, coupled with her unique skills in animal behavior that inspired Humane Choice.

Humane Choice Wildlife Services is one of only about 20 companies in the United States that offers, exclusively, humane solutions to human-wildlife conflicts.

Based in Ojai, California, the company's service area extends from Los Olivos to Malibu and inland areas including Agoura, Simi Valley and Santa Paula.
