As part of National Spay and Neuter Month, Cook County residents can receive a $40 discount from the county on their pet's spay or neuter procedure during February. Pet owners may take their dog or cat to a veterinarian of their choice. Pet owners must present proof of their pet's current rabies vaccination. The rebate is provided for up to two pets. "More than 4,000 dogs and cats are spayed or neutered annually through the Cook County program," said Donna Alexander, director of the Cook County Department of Animal and Rabies Control. The surgeries are performed by a veterinarian while the animals are under general anesthesia so they do not feel any pain.
