Kane County Animal Control will host a pet rabies and microchipping clinic from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 4 at its premises at 4060 Keslinger Road in Geneva.
The clinic will be conducted in the style of a drive-thru. Dog and cat owners park in their vehicles and let staff and volunteers do the work, event organizers said. People do not need to get out of their cars, but are asked to wear a mask, officials said.
The cost of a one-year-old rabies vaccine with tag is $22 for castrated animals or $40 for uncastrated animals. Seniors receive a reduced rate of $10 to have their pets vaccinated. Microchips are also available for $15. Cash, checks, VISA and MasterCard are accepted for payment.
The clinic will operate with two shifts, each consisting of a doctor and staff, as well as clerks to process documents and finances, officials said. Staff will hold the animal on a leash and transport it to the examination station. While the medical team carries out the examination and the vaccinations, a clerk fills out the anti-rabies certificate and another takes care of the payment.
Once the procedure is complete, the veterinarian will communicate with the owner in his car. After each vehicle has left, the staff cleans the station for the next customer.
Future clinics are scheduled for August, September and October, officials said. The exact dates of the clinics have not been announced.
