Spay/neuter discounts available this month at Cook County vets
Cook County is celebrating National Spay and Neuter Month by offering discounted spay and neuter services throughout February.
“Having your pet spayed or neutered is the proper and responsible thing to do,” Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle said. “Your pet will have a better quality of life, and communities around the county will not have to spend their limited tax dollars providing care for animals that are abandoned on the streets.”
County officials estimate the discount at $20 to $40. The program is available by request at any vet in the county for up to two pets per household. The amount of the discount will vary from office to office. Pet owners must live in Cook County, and pets must be up to date on rabies shots. Pet owners should ask for the Cook County discount.
Last year, the discount program incentivized the spaying or neutering of over 5,500 animals.
