Will County Animal Control Ordinance require all dogs, cats and ferrets to be vaccinated against Rabies and registered with Will County Animal Control. The rabies vaccination not only protects your pets from the disease, it also reduces the chances of humans being exposed to Rabies.
Displaying your pet's registration tag is not only required by law, but it helps ensure that if your pet gets lost or hurt, you, as the owner, can be contacted promptly!
Most Veterinary facilities located in Will County will issue a registration tag when your pet is vaccinated against Rabies. If the Veterinary facility does not carry our registration tags, you must purchase it by mailing a check or money order payable to Will County Animal Control along with a copy of the vaccination certificate and correct owner/pet information. You can also come to our office located at 22452 S. Cherry Hill Rd Joliet, Il 60433, or you may purchase the tag by phone using a credit or debit card by calling us at (815) 462-5633.
** Our department must have a copy of the Rabies vaccination certificate (issued by the vaccinating Veterinarian) on file in order to issue a registration tag. Please email a copy of your certificate along with your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office at (815)462-5633 to purchase a rabies tag.
