February is National Spay/Neuter Month

   The Department of Animal & Rabies Control will be offering a rebate for spay/neuter costs in the month of February.

The Cook County Department of Animal & Rabies Control are doing their part to help solve our country’s pet overpopulation problem.  Cook County residents can have their dogs, cats, or ferrets spayed/neutered during the month of February and save $40 through their veterinarian.

How the rebate program works:

  1. You must be a Cook County resident.
  2. Call your veterinarian to ask if she/he is participating in the Cook County spay/neuter rebate program.
  3. Schedule an appointment in February with a participating veterinarian.
  4. Bring your cat, dog or ferret in for spay/neuter surgery. Limit is two pets per household.
  5. All pets must either receive a rabies vaccination and tag the day of surgery or have a current rabies vaccination and tag to qualify for the program.

Contact your local veterinarian for more information. Or you can go to the County site at CookCountyIL.gov/service/spay-and-neuter-program-0.

   In addition, for Northlake residents only, bring your cat or dog in to a participating veterinarian to be spayed or neutered, anytime during the year, and you will receive a $20 rebate from the City of Northlake.  To participate in the program, your pet must be inoculated with the rabies vaccine. To receive your $20 rebate from Northlake City Hall, you must bring in proof of residency and proof of the procedure from your veterinarian.
