The Health Department's Animal Care and Control Program tracks pet vaccinations and rabies tags, investigates animal bites and complaints of nuisance and neglect, as well as impounds stray animals. In 2016, nine low-cost pet vaccination clinics were held that served 2,585 animals. Animal wardens are available to provide free informational programs to small community groups about animal behavior and wildlife interaction. The Animal Care and Control facility is located at 18736 West Peterson Road, Libertyville.
