If you like animals, here’s a way you can show everyone how much you care, while supporting animal shelters, rescues and organizations in Florida. The new ‘Animal Friend’ specialty license plate will soon be available!
Many of you may have the original Animal Friend tag, first made available in 2005, featuring Charlie and Max:
Charlie and Max represent the countless dogs and cats across the state of Florida who are not spayed or neutered; many of their offspring end up at shelters.
The funds raised from these tags are distributed to Florida Animal Friend (FAF) Inc. FAF’s mission is to cut down on unwanted cats and dogs by supporting organizations who offer free or low-cost s/n services throughout Florida. More than $478,000 has been awarded to 22 statewide organizations through the sale of the plate. For the list of recipients in 2016, click here.
You can get the new license plate at tax collector and tag agency offices beginning October 7. There is a $25 fee in addition to the other registration fees. There are thousands and thousands of animal lovers in Florida; according to FAF, almost 20,000 people have registered the tag. Ninety percent of the fees collected must go directly to support s/n programs; less than 10% can be used for promoting the plate, so your purchase will be put to good use!
