Brattleboro Dog and Wolf-hybrid Licenses Due


Vermont dogs and wolf-hybrids 6 months of age and older must be licensed per Title 20, Section 3581(c) of Vermont State Statutes.  For dogs not previously licensed in Brattleboro, a new dog license application form is available on the website; go to Departments; Town Clerk; on the right-hand side bar is a section on Dogs.  From that page on the right side bar look at Licensing a New Dog.   Licenses being renewed may be processed in the Town Clerk’s office (in-person or by using the drop box in the Municipal Center parking lot), through the mail or paid 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.


                                          NEUTERED                           $21 (includes after April 1 $2 late fee)

                                          UNNEUTERED                      $27 (includes after April 1 $4 late fee)

Specially trained assistance dogs may be eligible for a reduced licensing fee.

Any person failing to license a dog or wolf-hybrid 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, please contact the Town Clerk’s office at 802-251-8157 Monday through Friday, 8:30 A. M. to 5:00 P.M.

Thank you,
