Shelburne’s Animal Ordinance is for cats, dogs, and wolf-hybrids. The animal licenses are due annually by April 1. Per State Law: 20 V.S.A. § 3581
The owner of a dog or wolf-hybrid more than six months old shall annually on or before April 1 cause it to be registered, numbered, described, and licensed on a form approved by the Secretary for one year from that day in the office of the clerk of the municipality in which the dog or wolf-hybrid is kept.
All dogs and wolf-hybrids over three months of age shall be vaccinated against rabies.
If your pet’s rabies certificate is current, please mail in your payment. And we will mail your pet’s tag to you. To register your dog or cat, we need the latest rabies certificate on file. You or your vet may scan your pet’s rabies certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org, or fax it to 802-985-9550.
The cost for licensing is $12.00 for spayed/neutered dog or cat, $16 for not spayed nor neutered pets. Please mail necessary certificates and a check to:
Town of Shelburne
P.O. Box 88
Shelburne, VT 05482
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.
