SACRAMENTO, January 8, 2020 - The California Department of Food and Agriculture is currently accepting proposals for the 2020 Pet Lover's License Plate grant program. This program makes available $330,000 in funding 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 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 February 10, 2020.
