Kane County Animal Control is offering a low-cost dog and cat rabies vaccination clinic from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 29, at the KCAC facility at 4060 Keslinger Road, Geneva.
If you live in Kane County, it’s important for your furry companion to stay current on their rabies vaccination and registration within the county.
KCAC will offer one-year rabies vaccines only. 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.
Your pet must either be on a leash or in a carrier while at the clinic, as well as handled by an adult, 18 years or older. 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, $35 for non-neutered. Seniors pay only $10 for the vaccine, 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. All an owner needs to do is keep the information with the chip company up-to-date.
Other clinics will be offered from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, and from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on a Wednesday to be named later in September and October.
All forms of payment will be accepted. If paying by credit or debit cards, there is a 2.45 percent additional fee added to the total.
All owners must verify their animal has not bitten anyone in the past 10 days.
