Licenses and Permits

Dog Licenses

All dogs owned in the City of Winooski must be registered with the City Clerk on or before April 1st of each year pursuant to Title 20 Vermont Statutes Annotated, §3581. In order to register your dog, you must have a copy of the current Rabies Certificate. To get started, please call us at 802 655 6410 or email Dogs must be licensed every year. 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.

Cost: On or before April 3: $14 (altered) / $18 (un-altered) (after April 3 a late fee will be applied)
