Get your pet vaccinated at low-cost clinic
The Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center's Animal Care and Control Program is offering a low-cost pet vaccination clinic in conjunction with the Lindenhurst Police Department from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 13, at the Lindenhurst Municipal Center, 2301 E. Sand Lake Road in Lindenhurst.
The goal of the clinic is to provide a convenient and affordable way for Lake County residents to keep their pets up to date with shots and rabies tags.
Standard vaccine, tag and microchip costs for the vaccination clinic are as follows:
• One-year rabies vaccination and Lake County tag: $20 for spayed/neutered pets, $60 for pets not spayed/neutered.
• One-year rabies vaccination, tag and distemper: $25 for spayed/neutered pets, $65 for pets not spayed/neutered.
• Distemper complex only: $10
• Microchip: $15
• For a $5 donation, the 4-H dog spin club "K9 Krew" will provide pet nail trims.
Pets will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. All animals brought to the clinic must be at least 4 months old. Dogs must be leashed and cats placed in carriers. Only cash will be accepted on-site. Proof of spay/neuter may be required.
The Health Department's Animal Care and Control Program tracks pet vaccinations and rabies tags, investigates animal bites and complaints of nuisance and neglect, and impounds stray animals.
In 2016, nine low-cost pet vaccination clinics were held that served 2,585 animals. Animal wardens are available to provide free informational programs to small community groups about animal behavior and wildlife interaction.
The Animal Care and Control facility is at 18736 W. Peterson Road, Libertyville.
