I'm pet friendly-are you?

Jefferson City, MO - infoZine - The Missouri Department of Agriculture (MDA) announced a new grant program to help with low-cost spay and neuter services to benefit unwanted dogs and cats. This program offers license plates available to all Missourians interested in making a donation to the Missouri State Humane Association. Each sale of the “I’m Pet Friendly” license plate will donate $20 to the Missouri Pet Spay/Neuter Fund administered by MDA.

“The Department of Agriculture has implemented this new program that will help humane societies, animal shelters and non-profit rescue groups spay and neuter dogs and cats and control the population of unwanted animals,” said Don Steen, director of MDA. “Anyone will be able to purchase the special pet-friendly Missouri license plate and is a way for everyone to become actively involved in communities working together to create solutions for pet populations.”

To obtain an “I’m Pet Friendly” license plate, you must first pay a $25 contribution to the Missouri State Humane Association and be issued an emblem-use authorization. You can obtain your new plate through the Missouri Department of Revenue by submitting the emblem-use authorization statement with a $15 specialty license plate fee and an Application for Missouri Personalized and Special License Plate form.

Funds will be administered by MDA and paid as grants for low-cost pet spay/neuter services to benefit unwanted dogs and cats. Eligible humane societies, local municipal animal shelters regulated by sections 23.400 to 273.405, RSMo, and organizations exempt from federal income taxation under IRS Code Section 501(c) (3) may apply for the funds.
