Grant Made Possible through Sale of Popular “I’m Animal Friendly” License Plates
Sept. 18, 2017, BOSTON –The MSPCA-Angell announced today it has received a $30,000 grant from the Massachusetts Animal Coalition to continue executing collaborative spay and neuter efforts in underserved areas of Massachusetts.
The grant, made possible through the sale of the popular “I’m Animal Friendly” license plates, is essential for helping the MSPCA bring spay and neuter services to community members who cannot afford to alter their animals. The MSPCA led efforts to pass legislation creating the license plate program, which is easy to order by way of the Registry of Motor Vehicles or by visiting www.petplate.org.
Massachusetts Animal Coalition (MAC) is a statewide, non-profit organization comprised of animal professionals and individual volunteers dedicated to working together to decrease the number of homeless, neglected, displaced and abused animals in Massachusetts. MAC’s “I’m Animal Friendly” License Plate program helps fund spay and neuter programs across the state. These charitable plates are available through Massachusetts RMV and are tax deductible.
