All dogs and wolf hybrids 6 months or older living in Putney must be licensed every year on or before April 1. A dog registered after April 1 will incur a penalty. All dogs and wolf hybrids must show a valid rabies certificate which will be retained by the Town Clerk. To claim the spayed/neutered discount, you must present a certificate from your veterinarian. The charge for a dog license is made up of the basic license fee, a state fee ($5.00) and a surcharge to fund a dog control program ($5.00 for the first dog registered to an owner and $2.50 for each additional dog licensed to the same owner).
Fees Before April 1:
Spayed/neutered $14.00 for first dog $11.50 for each additional animal
Intact $18.00 for first dog $15.50 for each additional animal
After April 1
Spayed/neutered $16.00 for first dog $13.50 for each additional animal
Intact $22.00 for first dog $19.50 for each additional animal
If your dog has been licensed in another Vermont town, we will honor that year’s license and issue you a new one at no charge. If you are a new resident you must register your dogs within 30 days of moving to town. Fees may be paid in cash or check made payable to the Town of Putney.
The Town Clerk is open Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday 9:00 to 4:00; Wednesday 9:00 to 7:00, and 10:00 to 3:00 on Fridays.
