DOG OWNERS OF WOODBURY – DOES YOUR DOG HAVE A LICENSE??
All towns in Vermont require that every dog six months or older be licensed annually by April 1 with the town clerk of the town where the dog is kept. To license a dog you must provide the town clerk with a certificate signed by a duly licensed veterinarian stating that the dog has received a current rabies vaccination approved by the state. Further information is available in Vermont Statues [20 V.S.A. § 3581 ( c )(2)]. The fee for a spayed or neutered animal is $9 and $13 for an intact animal. Dogs registered late (after April 1) are $11 and $17 including a late fee.
The license tag provided for your dog’s collar serves two important purposes:
- It bears an individual tag number, important information should your pet become lost or stolen.
- For an officer of the law, a current tag documents that your dog is vaccinated for rabies and will not be destroyed.
Licensing your dog with the town clerk each year is a state requirement and a civic duty to ensure the health and safety of the residents of the Town of Woodbury when dealing with dog issues. Licensing your dog also provides the Town with information to ensure that lost dogs may be reunited with their owner. A portion of the fee contributes to state-wide rabies clinics and a low-cost spay & neuter program.
