Brattleboro 2024 Dog and Wolf-Hybrid Licenses Due

The Brattleboro Town Clerks office is working on a new portal that will streamline the dog licensing process for dog owners, making it quicker and more efficient. Unfortunately, that launch of that portal has been delayed. Once the portal is ready, dog owners will receive renewal paperwork in the mail with instructions on how to access and use the new portal through our website.

If a dog owner needs to license their dog(s) prior to the launch of this portal, they may do so in the same ways that they have license in the past: by visiting the Town Clerk’s office, paying the fee online, or by submitting a check through the mail or the drop-box (please include a note indicating the name of the owner(s) and dog(s) that are being licensed). These methods will remain available after the launch of the portal.

All current dog owners will be mailed a renewal notice in January. To renew an existing dog license, return your payment and renewal notice with updated rabies vaccine information by April 1, 2024.


NEUTERED             $19

UNNEUTERED       $23

Specially trained assistance dogs may be eligible for a reduced licensing fee. Reach out to the Town Clerk’s office for more information.

Dog and wolf-hybrids licensed after April 1 will be charged a penalty. In addition, 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 or, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Vermont dog and wolf-hybrids 6 months of age and older must be licensed annually on or before April 1, and a current, unexpired rabies vaccination is required, according to Vermont State Statute Title 20. An animal is not considered licensed without proof of unexpired rabies vaccination and a payment.
