Frequently Asked Questions:

How much does a dog license cost?

  • Before April 1:
    • Neutered/Spayed Dog - $14 
    • Un-Neutered/Spayed - $18
  • After April 1:
    • Neutered/Spayed Dog - $16
    • Un-Neutered/Spayed - $22
  • Do I have to license my dog every year?
    • Yes. Licensing provides the City with a method of ensuring that dogs are properly vaccinated against rabies. Additionally, dog owners receive great value from a license in that authorities make every effort to return lost dogs to their owners when the dog is wearing a current tag. Other dogs that are not licensed are transported to an animal shelter where impounding and boarding fees are charged.
  • Does the City have leash laws?
    • Yes. Please see Section 3.12 of our Municipal Code -  "Leashes and collars required; dogs running at large". 
  • What can I do about an animal-related problem?
    • If you have an animal-related problem, please contact the non-emergency line at the Winooski Police Department (802 655 0221) to get in touch with our Animal Control Officer.
