Discounted Rates Offered to Spay/Neuter Des Plaines Pets

For National Spay and Neuter Month this February, Cook County is offering a rebate to pet owners.

 

Des Plaines pet owners can have their animals neutered this month at a discounted price, thanks to the Cook County Board. 

Board President Toni Preckwinkle announced that all Cook County residents can receive a $40 discount on their pet's spay or neuter procedure during February. Pet owners can take their animal to the veterinarian of their choice, and must present proof of a current rabies vaccine. The rebate is provided for up to two pets. 

Preckwinckle says spaying and neutering is good for the pet and the community. 

“The procedure not only helps your pet live a longer, healthier life, it benefits the community because it reduces the number of strays and unwanted animals in our neighborhoods. Communities spend millions of tax dollars every year providing care for animals abandoned on the streets.” 

Spaying and neutering have been proven to reduce the risk of some types of cancers in pets. It also completely eliminates certain life-threatening bacterial infections.

The surgeries are performed by a veterinarian while the animals are under general anesthesia so they do not feel any pain.
