The Palatine Police Animal Control Unit is available to assist residents as well as businesses with domestic and wildlife issues. Information and referrals are provided as needed.

Residents may leave voice mails for Animal Control at the non-emergency police department number (847)-359-9000.
The State of Illinois has a spay/neuter program available for low income residents. The Animal Population Control Program was designed to decrease the amount of strays in our cities which in turn protects the public by a lower incidence of animal bites.
An "application with income documentation" must be submitted to the Illinois Department of Public Health for approval. Vet participation is voluntary. Please click here for further information about this program and applications.
