By Lake County Health Department

The Lake County Health Department/Community Health Center's Animal Care and Control Program will offer low-cost pet vaccination clinics at three different locations during the month of April.

On Saturday, April 13, the program is working with the 4-H to provide a clinic event at Fremont Township Center, 22376 W. Erhart Road, in Mundelein from 9 a.m. until noon. In addition to the vaccinations, the 4-H All in Ag Club will be there to sell homemade dog treats and a representative of the 4-H County Dog program will be trimming dog nails in exchange for a donation to the 4-H All in Ag Club.

On Saturday, April 20, a low-cost clinic will be held at the Lindenhurst Police Department, 2301 East Sand Lake Road, in Lindenhurst, from 9 a.m. until noon. On Saturday, April 27, a clinic will be held at the Vernon Hills Police Department, 754 Lakeview Parkway, in Vernon Hills from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m.

Each clinic provides a convenient and affordable way for Lake County residents to keep pets up to date with their shots and rabies tags. Animal Care and Control is fortunate to work collaboratively with community organizations and agencies in providing the clinics to benefit residents.

The vaccination costs are as follows:

For Pets Spayed/Neutered

One-year rabies vaccination and Lake County tag: $20.00

One-year rabies vaccination, tag and distemper: $25.00

Distemper complex only: $10.00

Microchip: $15.00

For Pets Not Spayed/Neutered

One-year rabies vaccination and Lake County tag: $60.00

One-year rabies vaccination, tag and distemper: $65.00

Distemper complex only: $10.00

Microchip: $15.00

Pets will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. All animals brought to the clinic must be at least four months old. Dogs must be leashed and cats placed in carriers. Only cash will be accepted on site.

The Health Department's Animal Care and Control Program tracks pet vaccinations and rabies tags, investigates animal bites and complaints of nuisance and neglect, as well as impounds stray animals. Of the 74,625 animals vaccinated for rabies in Lake County last year, approximately 2,000 were vaccinated at the Animal Care and Control off-site clinics, which was a 20 percent increase over the previous year. The off-site clinics are designed to increase vaccinations in areas of the county with low vaccination rates.
