Animal Licensing

Update: Animal licenses for cats and dogs are due annually by April 1. If you have had to postpone your pet’s rabies shot due to COVID-19, we be extending the late fee.  After the Governor lifts the State of Emergency, we will wait 60 days to add the 50% late fee.  

If your pet’s rabies certificate is current, please mail in your payment. And we will mail your pets tag to you. To register your dog or cat, we need the latest rabies certificate on file. You or your vet may scan your rabies certificate to, or fax it to 802-985-9550.  

The cost for licensing is $12.00 for spayed/neutered dog or cat, $16 for unspayed/unneutered pets. Please mail them to P.O. Box 88. For dogs & cats new to town please also send/bring a certificate of spay/neutering. If you have any questions, please call us at 802-985-5116.
