Reminder: APRIL 1st is the Deadline

In accordance with Vermont State Statute 20 section 3581, dogs 6 months and older must be registered with the town clerk. A current rabies certificate must be provided to us to keep on file. At the first of each year, we send reminder letters/renewal forms to owners of previously registered dogs and begin licensing dogs in January of each year. If you are unable to come down to our office to register your dog, mail us your renewal along with payment and a new rabies certificate if your dog is due then we will send your dog license and tag to you.
