Kane County Animal Control Clinics Help Pet Owners Keep Pets Healthy and Safe
The staff at Kane County Animal Control (KCAC) wrapped up another successful year providing low-cost rabies vaccines and/or microchipping during six drive thru clinics in 2023. A total of 550 dogs and cats received life-protecting rabies vaccines through the hard work of the staff and volunteers at KCAC who made the clinics possible.
The cost for the rabies vaccine with a tag is $40 for non-neutered and $22 for neutered. Over 200 senior citizens brought their pets to take advantage of a special discounted fee for those 65 and older. Seniors pay a reduced rate of $10 for the vaccine. Kane County is the only county in Illinois that offers free tags to qualifying senior citizens.
“We plan to continue offering these low-cost clinics so that pet owners have the opportunity to provide the best care for their furry friends," said Brett Youngsteadt, KCAC Executive Director.
State law requires every dog or cat 4 months or older living in Kane County have a rabies vaccine and a rabies tag to show they have been vaccinated.
If you missed a clinic, pet owners can go to KCAC to purchase a rabies tag or have their pet microchipped for a $15 fee, year-round. Learn more at www.kanecountypets.org.
