Grants funded by Animal Friendly license plate sales

The Tennessee Department of AgricultureChattanooga, TN – The Tennessee Department of Agriculture today announced the recipients of the animal spay/neuter grants at the Humane Educational Society in Chattanooga. The grants supports low cost spay/neuter programs in Tennessee and are funded through Animal Friendly license plate sales.

“This is a great program that not only helps control the number of unwanted animals but it also provides important animal and public health benefits,” said Ken Givens, Commissioner. “Every dollar the agency receives goes directly to spay and neuter services. Citizens can be assured that their money is going directly to the mission of the license plate.”

Every Animal Friendly license plate sale contributes more than $15 to fund the grants. This year, $96,000 was awarded to a total of 48 different non-profit animal care and rescue organizations and government agencies. The grant amounts ranged from $1,000 to $2,500. The total funds are less than previous years, due mainly to fewer people renewing their Animal Friendly license plates. Last year, more than 2,300 animals benefited from Animal Friendly funds. «Read the rest of this article»
