The Associated Humane Societies supports low-cost spay/neuter programs and the need to fund these programs in innovative ways. New Jersey is one of several states offering vanity automobile license plates as a source of money to increase awareness of neutering or spaying cats and dogs as well as to provide a pool of funds for low-cost or free neutering programs. By purchasing these vanity plates, you can help prevent the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens as the monies generated from their sale funds New Jersey's animal population control fund run by the NJ Department of Health. Literally thousands of pets are neutered annually through this low-cost program in addition to promoting adoptions. There are now two designs to choose from - the original "I'm Animal Friendly" plate debuted in 1994 and a new updated version featuring the artwork of Jersey resident Patrick McDonnell's syndicated comic strip "Mutts" is also now available. With the "I'm Animal Friendly" license plate on your car, you not only speak volumes about your love of our best friends, but also the importance of spaying and neutering our pets.
