“I’m Pet Friendly” License Plate Spay and Neuter Grants
You can make a difference for the pet population by purchasing “I’m Pet Friendly” license plates. The license plates, which cost $25 for the emblem use and $15 for the plate fee, support spay and neuter initiatives in licensed animal shelters and non-profit agencies. Your donations will be awarded to select shelters and agencies across the state that meet grant requirements determined by a three member panel and administered by the Missouri Department of Agriculture. Your donations are greatly appreciated and will make a difference in the health care of dogs and cats across Missouri.
