2023 dog licenses available

BRATTLEBORO — Dog and wolf-hybrid licenses are available for the 2023 licensing period. Vermont dogs and wolf-hybrids 6 months and older must be licensed on or before April 1.

New licenses and renewal licenses may be obtained in person at the Town Clerk’s office by using the drop box in the Municipal Center parking lot, through the mail, or online at

Vaccination against rabies is required by Vermont statutes before licensing. If an animal has been spayed or neutered, the certificate issued by the veterinarian must be presented when licensing the animal for the first time. A current rabies certificate issued and signed by a veterinarian must be filed with the Town Clerk.

The licensing fees are $19 for neutered animals and $23 for un-neutered animals. Specially trained assistance dogs may be eligible for a reduced licensing fee.

Dogs and wolf-hybrids licensed after April 1 will be charged a penalty. In addition, any person failing to license them may be fined up to $100 and the dog or wolf-hybrid may be impounded.

If an animal licensed last year has died or been given away, contact the Town Clerk’s office at 802-251-8157, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
