To be eligible for the $40 discount on a pet’s spay or neuter:

  • Pet owners must show proof of residency in Will County;
  • Pets must be registered with Will County Animal Control and reside with the owner;
  • Proof of current rabies vaccination and Will County registration tag must be provided on the day of surgery;
  • Rabies vaccination can be administered on the day of surgery, as well as registration tag purchase;
  • Surgery must take place between June 1 and 30.
