Published: Thursday, July 3, 2014 11:42 a.m. CST

ADDISON – Spay Illinois is holding its first Tag, License and Microchip Project this month in Addison.

Every year more than 6 to 8 million animals end up in shelters, and between 3 to 4 million never leave there. The project aims to help pet owners change that by offering the three most important items that can bring a pet home if they are lost, a news release stated.

Spay Illinois will offer rabies vaccinations, county tags and micro-chips at the Windy City Pet Expo between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. July 19 at the Odeum, 1033 N. Villa Ave.

The event will be open to all DuPage and Cook county residents. All altered pets older than four months will receive the service package for $30. It will cost $40 for unaltered pets.

Those who are not DuPage or Cook county residents can still have their pet vaccinated at the walk-in clinic.

Spay Illinois is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending pet over population and suffering in Illinois by providing affordable programs for pet owners.
