How To Humanely Get Rid of the Mouse In My Apartment?

Good Question

Pin it button big

Q: I hear it happens to every New Yorker at some time, but I was appalled to discover I have a mouse in my apartment. But, I am even more appalled to put down poison or traps that will squash the little guy. I would use a humane trap that keeps him alive, but then I wouldn't know what to do with it. Are there any services in New York that can help me get rid of my pest problem in a humane way?
