Cook County Rabies Tag Order Form

NEW - Cook County residents can now print and complete the order form under the Downloads section of this page to order new or replacement rabies tags. Please send the correct documents with the order form to ensure that order does not get returned.    THIS FORM IS FOR COOK COUNTY RESIDENTS WITH PETS THAT HAVE BEEN VACCINATED BY A LICENSED VETERINARIAN WHO NEEDS TO PURCHASE A RABIES TAG.

All animals receiving rabies vaccinations are issued a rabies tag that has been purchased from Cook County Animal and Rabies Control. These tags act as proof of rabies vaccination as well as a form of identification. Each tag is entered into a database maintained by Cook County Animal and Rabies Control. It allows for the reunion of lost pets with their owners. The current database utilized by Cook County Animal and Rabies Control is the second largest in the country with more than 500,000 registered animals.


Replacement Tags

Cook County residents can purchase replacement tags if the tag is lost or if the resident moved from another location. The cost of the replacement tag is $6 for a 1 year tag and $18 for a 3 year tag. This process is only for pet owners that have a current vaccination certificate from a veterinarian.
