Every dog must have a certificate showing that it has been vaccinated for rabies. This certificate must be presented at the time of registration.

Every dog must wear it's license tag.

Shelburne has a leash law. No dog may be allowed to run at large unless it is accompanied by the owner or custodian.

License Fees:

          $6.50 - all spayed/neutered dogs

          $6.50 - all puppies (4 to 7 months)

          $9.00 - all unneutered male dogs

          $2.00 - dogs with owners over 65 years of age (one dog only)

Reminder: It is now State Law to have all cats three (3) months of age and over vaccinated against rabies.
