Animal Control


Isle La Motte’s dog ordinance (click here to read) requires animals to be under the control of their owners at all times for the safety and enjoyment of everyone.  Seasonal residents and visitors are expected to travel to Isle La Motte with current vaccination records should they be accompanied by their canine companions.

In the unfortunate event you have a complaint or incident to report regarding an animal at large or an animal bite, please submit your complaint to the Town Clerk or Selectboard Chair via email.  This information will be sent to Isle La Motte’s Animal Control Officer by the Selectboard Chair.
