Shelter Programs


"I'm Animal Friendly" special license plate
The funds collected will be awarded to non-profit humane organizations and municipal animal control agencies in the Commonwealth to be used to prevent pet overpopulation by funding programs that provide services such as spaying and neutering to cats and dogs for free or at minimal cost. Funds received from the sale of these special license plates are dispersed annually by 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. The program benefits your community, the Commonwealth and, of course, the animals. Click here to apply.
