Tick tock! Hurry, hurry!
Time is running out to bring your dog or cat to Kane County Animal Control’s last three rabies/microchip clinics of the season, scheduled for the months of August, September and October 2018.
The last scheduled times and dates are:
- 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug.4
- 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19
- 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17
Only one-year rabies vaccines will be offered. It is required that all residents of Kane County purchase a registration tag at the time the vaccine is administered.
No appointment is necessary to take part in the clinics, but please make sure your pet is either on a leash or in a carrier while at the clinic, as well as handled by an adult, 18 years or older.
All owners must verify their animal has not bitten anyone in the past 10 days.
If your pet requires a muzzle, it is the owner’s responsibility to provide it and to fit it on the pet prior to arriving at the clinic.
If your pet is neutered or spayed, the cost for the rabies vaccine and registration tag is $20. The cost is $35 for non-neutered. Seniors pay $10 for the vaccine, and the tag is free.
KCAC is also offering microchipping for $15 during the clinic. Microchipping your pet is one way to bring your pet home if they should ever get lost. Most police departments and vet clinics can scan a pet with a chip scanner. Keeping the information with the microchip company up-to-date is all an owner needs to do.
If paying by credit or debit cards, only MasterCard and Visa are accepted. There is a 2.45 percent fee added to the total. Checks and cash are also accepted as payment.
KCAC’s address is 4060 Keslinger Road in Geneva.
