Crystal Lake IL. – Is your pet due for a rabies vaccination or in need of microchipping? Schedule an appointment with the McHenry County Animal Control and Adoption Center (MCAC) for one of three clinics this fall.

Rabies vaccinations are $15 for one year or $30 for three years. Registration tags are required by law; registration fees are separate and required at time of rabies vaccination. Discounts for senior residents and for pets previously spayed or neutered apply.

All owners must verify that their pet has not bitten anyone in the past 10 days. Pets must be leashed or in carriers. If your pet requires a muzzle, please put it on prior to the event. Please do not bring animals that are in heat. For everyone’s safety, it is strongly suggested that children not attend this busy event.
