Spay/Neuter Grants Now Available through California’s Pet Lover’s License Plate Program
The California Department of Food and Agriculture is currently accepting proposals for the 2019 Pet Lover's License Plate grant program. This program makes available $330,000 in funding for spay/neuter programs through fees associated with the original purchase, annual renewal, and conversion of Pet Lover's license plates from the California Department of Motor Vehicles.
A purchase of a Pet Lover's License Plate, which features original art from actor Pierce Brosnan, helps stop pet overpopulation in California by providing funds for spay/neuter services to municipalities and non-profit organizations in California. The revenue received from the sale and renewal of the license plate is awarded annually through grant agreements to eligible organizations.
Funding is available on a competitive basis to veterinary facilities that are registered and in good standing with the Veterinary Medical Board and operated by a city, county, city and county, an animal care or control agency, or a nonprofit meeting the requirements of Section 501(c)(3). The application deadline is March 1, 2019.
