HOMETOWN, IL -- Cook County Animal and Rabies Control will be offering low-cost rabies vaccine and microchip at clinics throughout the summer and across the county. The rabies vaccines and microchips will be available to all dogs, cats and ferrets.

A low-cost rabies clinic for the area will take place on Tuesday June 11, from 10 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. at Our Lady of Loretto Church, 8925 S. Kostner Ave., Hometown. The cost of a one-year rabies shot at the clinics is $7 for dogs and cats. A three-year rabies shot is $21. Ferret vaccines, which last one-year, are $9. Only rabies vaccinations are available at the low-cost rabies vaccination clinics.

Microchip implantations are provided at no-cost with a rabies vaccine. The registration of the chip in a national database is $19.95 per animal. Only cash or checks are accepted at the clinics.

Residents must present valid government-issued identification proving Cook County residency at the clinic. A full schedule is posted on the department's website.

In 2018, Cook County Animal and Rabies Control provided more than 4,000 low-cost rabies vaccines to animals across the County. More than 49,000 animals have been vaccinated since the program began in 2006.
