Why is the new plate needed?

Unfortunately, over 1 million dogs and cats enter California’s shelters each year, and over half of them are euthanized (killed) simply because there are not enough homes.

The easiest way a pet owner can help reduce pet overpopulation is to spay or neuter their pet.

The California Pet Lover's License Plate will provide a large scale, permanent funding source for spay & neuter programs.
