Moles eating my garden...help!

I live in NW Connecticut and I am having a terrible problem with moles around and under my garden. I need suggestions to make them leave. I'm not interested in poisons because of my chickens and pets and if I tried those moles killing traps my kids would be very unhappy.

Varmints: garden pest critters

Some animals can cause problems in your garden.

Cats:

The inspiration for this post was the near-destruction of a 13-ft by 2-ft raised bed of newly planted seed. Our cats saw the freshly-turned dirt and thought, "Litterbox!" Since much of that south-facing bed was killed by two extremely late killing frosts we let the cats live, but we lost radishes, lettuce and carrot seedlings.
