For the unpsayed/unneutered prices it's a State mandated law in which the extra $10.00 is sent to the State for a pet population fund. This fund is for the low-income families that qualify for food stamps to get their pet's spay/neuter at reduce prices. The County is only raising their price $3.00. If any questions, please call 815-235-8276 or Dr. William Condie (Administrator) at 815-232-4916. Thank you.
