MassRMV in September 2013 is celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Registry of Motor Vehicles Special Plate program, established by the legislature as an opportunity for charitable organizations to raise funds through a dedicated license plate.

In recognition of the anniversary, the MassDOT blog is sharing the story of some of the nearly 20 special plates over the next two weeks.

Today’s highlighted plate: I’m Animal Friendly

License Plate: I’m Animal Friendly

Year Plate Established: FY2005

Number of Plates on the Road: 8,989

Funds Raised for Charity: $1,389,144.00

RMV Plate Animal Friendly
The “I’m Animal Friendly” license plate supports spay and neuter efforts for animals all across Massachusetts. The plates give the driver an opportunity to show they care about animals.

Funds received from the sale of these special license plates and subsequent renewals are dispersed annually by the Massachusetts Animal Coalition (MAC) through a grant process. These funds are awarded to non-profit humane organizations and municipal animal control agencies in the Commonwealth that provide spaying and neutering services for cats, dogs and rabbits.

Since its inception, this plate has aided the community, the Commonwealth and, of course, the animals. Homeless animals and pets living with people who cannot afford to have their animal spayed or neutered have benefited.

The plate also helps raise awareness about the number of homeless animals in Massachusetts. Numerous stories of hope come from shelters and adopters about how much the program has impacted them. To date, over 25,000 animals have been helped with this program.
