Local and state laws require all dogs and cats over four months of age be vaccinated against rabies and be licensed with a rabies tag from Peoria County.
Local laws require the registration within 10 days of vaccination - so don’t forget to purchase your tag!
If you have a three year vaccination, you must obtain a three year rabies registration tag.
The Peoria County Board approved a revised policy for puppy and kitten rabies registration tags. If you vaccinate and register your puppy or kitten before six months of age - paying the $36 registration fee - and then have your pet spayed or neutered within 6 months, your next one year rabies registration tag is free!
Pet owners who register pets at that age will receive a coupon in the mail entitling them to the free registration. If you lose your coupon, don't worry - PCAPS will still honor the free registration. Just call the office atfor help.
A lost pet with a rabies tag can find its way home and animals wearing rabies tags receive veterinary care if sick or injured. Protect your pet with a rabies tag!
