Brattleboro Dog and Wolf-Hybrid Licenses Are Due

Brattleboro dog and wolf-hybrid licenses are due on or before April 1 (because April 1 falls on a Saturday, this is extended through April 3, 2023) for animals 6 months of age and older.  For dogs not previously licensed in Brattleboro, a new dog license application form is available on 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

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.
