You must have a current annual rabies vaccination certificate from a licensed veterinarian for each dog and cat. State law requires an animal to be at least 3-months old.
Furnish or mail the rabies certificate to our office located at 1300 East Ashley with the annual fee of $5 for each altered animal or $10 for each intact animal. You must show documentation of spay or neuter to receive the $5 fee. The registration and identification tag will be mailed to you within 10 working days.
Citizens over the age of 62 or with disabilities who possess altered animals are required to register their animals, but are exempt from paying the fees. You are required to attach the registration tag to your dog's collar. Cats are not required by law to wear registration tags, however we highly recommend this since a tag is provided and it is the best way to return a lost cat to it's owner.
Adoption fees for dogs range from $61 - $94; for cats $41 - $66. Fees are dependent on the type and gender of the animal.

The water you use doesn't go away. Whatever goes down the drain ends up at the treatment plant. While the plant effectively removes settled and organic materials, it is not designed to remove certain chemicals and metals. When toxic chemicals are dumped or rinsed down household drains, they pass through the system largely untreated and end up in the creek where they may threaten sensitive aquatic life.
In addition, anything that goes down a storm drain goes directly to creeks and streams, eventually passing untreated into the Illinois River.
