Low Cost Rabies Vaccination and Microchip Clinics

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Animal and Rabies Control has paused rabies and microchip clinics at this time. Please continue to check back for updates. 

Rabies Vaccination Clinics

Our vaccination clinic service assures public health by increasing the availability of life protecting rabies vaccinations to the segment of responsible pet owners at an affordable cost. Our high visibility in every area in the County also reminds all pet owners that rabies vaccinations are required by law and maintains a pet’s good health.   The cost of a vaccination is:

  • $7 for a 1 year vaccination
  • $21 for 3 year vaccination
  • $9 for a 1 year ferret shot

All residents must show a valid identification or proof of residency in Cook County. We only accept cash or check, no debit or credit cards.

Microchip Clinics

Cook County Animal and Rabies Control also provides free microchips to all Cook County residents that purchase a rabies vaccincation. However, the pet owner is required to pay a one-time $19.95 national registration fee to PETrac Pet recovery. At our clinics, we assist the pet owner with completing the registration forms to ensure that the pet is properly registered. The microchip is not a GPS, it can not show the location of the lost pet. It is important for pet owners to register their pet with the microchip company from which the microchip was derived (forms will be provided). If pet owners did not register their pet's microchip from previous clinics please contact our office to obtain information about enrollment.
