    Years ago, an entire family of raccoons moved into my mom's basement. They got in through one of the fireplaces. Mom didn't know about it until she heard a terrifying racket and called the police because she thought someone was breaking in. The police contacted the Cook County Forest Preserve system who came to her house and set traps in the basement. After the raccoons were trapped, they were taken to one of the forest preserves and released. I don't know if the forest preserves do it anymore, but it's worth a try. Their contact info is as follows:
