202 dogs registration is now underway. Come in and get your dog’s new shiny purple heart tag. All dogs must be registered by April 1 (state statute) with the Town Clerk. Current rabies certificate must be on file. The fees are now (as of October 1): $14 or $8/ spayed/neutered. Please note that $5 of each registration fee goes to the State of Vermont for domestic animal programs.

All dogs registered in January will be entered in the January Lucky Dip for a free license in 2021. If 50 dogs are registered, two tag numbers will be drawn. All January registrations will also be entered in the January/February drawing, so you have at least two chances to win the Lucky Dips.

The lucky winners of the 2019 January Lucky Dip are License #1 (Heidi Racht – Annie, the sweet white dog mix) and License #3 (Kathleen & Dave Clark – JD, the old – 16! -red dog); January/February Lucky Dip is License #58 (Jim and Patty Baumann – golden Banks) and Town Meeting Luck Dip License #215 (Michael Pendriss – black Chaos). Free 2020 licenses for them!
