View the article about the new name
DuPage County Animal Services is a self-supporting (non taxpayer funded) county department that:
- Prevents and controls rabies through bite investigation, tag issuance and rabies testing
- Rescues and shelters stray and unwanted animals to reunite with owners, transfer to rescue groups, or adopt to a responsible home
- Provides veterinary care to treat illness and injury

Vaccinate Against Rabies, It's The Law!
Each year DuPage County Animal Services and the DuPage County Health Department keep track of the number of positive cases of rabies found in wildlife within the county. For the health and safety of all the people and pets of DuPage County, please make
sure all dogs and cats are current on their rabies vaccination - even if kept indoors. It's the law.
In-Kennel Enrichment Programs
DuPage County Animal Services staff work together to ensure that our shelter animals are healthy, happy, and sound in the unfamiliar shelter environment until they are adopted. Through our kennel enrichment program staff and volunteers engage animals
with various activities to keep them well, both physically and mentally. Enrichment is a vital part of our successful adoption program.
