The Cook County Department of Animal Control will kick off the Annual Rabies Vaccine and Microchip Mobile Clinic summer schedule from 10 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. June 4, at the Country Square Plaza parking lot, 5505 W. 127th St., Crestwood.
“Each year, this event gets bigger and more pets are served,” Cook County Commissioner Joan Murphy (D-Crestwood) said. “Families are struggling and this is a positive way the county can help residents save money and receive proper care for their animals.”
The mobile animal clinic is for Cook County residents only. Pet owners must present a valid driver’s license or state ID.
The fee for dogs, cats and ferrets is $7 for a one-year rabies vaccine or $21 for a three-year vaccine. Microchip identification is $10.
Mobile clinic service will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis at various locations across Cook County. For public safety reasons, all pets must be leashed or caged at all times.
