Cook County (outside Village borders)
Residents who need assistance with a domestic animal such as a dog or a cat must call Cook County Animal Services at (708) 974-6140 for assistance. Cook County Animal Services can help with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, lost pets and more. No county in Illinois will assist with wildlife control situations, and there is no free Chicagoland animal control service for wildlife.
Will County (outside Village borders)
The Will County Animal Control Department provides a comprehensive Animal Control Program for county residents. A staff of animal control officers responds to complaints regarding bites to humans caused by animals. The officers also respond to animal control complaints received from residents living in the unincorporated areas of Will County who are not served by other local animal control programs.
Will County Animal Control does not handle nuisance wildlife. Residents who have a problem with nuisance wildlife can call a private trapper (See Yellow Pages under “Animal Relocation”). For other assistance with wildlife or to get a license to trap wildlife, contact the Department of Natural Resources (815) 476-2523.
The Animal Control Program maintains a 24-hour answering service and emergency pick-up for injured animals and stray biters.
