Animal Friendly Program

Anfriend  

Thanks to Texas drivers’ support of the Animal Friendly Fund, the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) has been able to distribute grant funds for spay/neuter surgeries for 81,390 dogs and cats in Texas. This has potentially prevented the unwanted births of millions of cats and dogs over the next several years! An additional public health benefit is that all of these animals are seen by a veterinarian, increasing the probability that appropriate vaccinations will be administered. By the conclusion of the 2013 fiscal year, DSHS has distributed $4,778,735 in grants toward the low-cost spays and neuters.

  If you would like to help reduce pet overpopulation in Texas, order your Animal Friendly license plate.

If you already have an Animal Friendly license plate, thank you for being part of the solution!
