CA Spay and Neuter License Plates

Spay & Neuter Saves Lives!

Help reduce pet overpopulation with the CA Spay & Neuter License Plate!

The California Spay & Neuter license plate, sponsored by the California Veterinary Medical Board, provides a fun and easy way for pet lovers to help reduce pet overpopulation. Proceeds from the plate provide funding for free or low-cost spay & neuter surgeries across California, and also help to raise awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering.

By pre-ordering the California Spay & Neuter License Plate today, you can be among the first to display the new plate on your vehicle. You can pre order your new plates beginning today.

A sequentially numbered plate is just $50. A personalized plate, whether a new request or a transfer for an existing personalized plate, is $98. These fees are additional above your normal registration fee. After 7,500 pre-orders are received, the DMV will begin the official program, and will start issuing actual plates after the implementation process is complete.

Success story! - Thank for you for Tom (formerly Klondike)!

Thank you so much for rescuing Tom (formerly Klondike) and helping us to meet him. It is sad to think that the little guy was found in a wood pile as a kitten, but is so wonderful that through your organization, he has been matched with a loving family. It is hard not to spoil him, he is absolutely adorable and has a sweet personality to match his handsome looks.

He loves to cuddle and be brushed, and his latest interest is laying on my head and cleaning my hair. Whenever he is locked out of a room and craves attention from us, rather than hysterically meowing at the door, he patiently sits there and waits for us to let him in. He almost always follows me wherever I go in the house, and the few times that he doesn’t, he will quickly be by my side if I call out his name.

He has a new little Siamese-mix sister (Jerry), who was found at an autobody shop, and the two have bonded well together and become partners in crime, though Jerry is the one who commits most of the crimes. It is so cute hearing them charge around the house together and then eventually falling asleep on top of each other. In just a few months, Tom and Jerry have already brought a lifetime of joy into our home and we are looking forward to spending many many many more years with them.

Success story - Bella, now named Irie!

Hello Nine Lives.

I want to let you know that Bella, now named Irie, is a wonderful addition to our family. She has come a long way since we brought her home on May 27th and is starting to get some meat on her bones. We named her Irie as she has a wonderful kicked back personality and is just happy and easy going. Irie means - everyting is cool, no worries, feelin' good, everyting is everyting (everyting = everything in Jamaican Patois). We are absolutely in-love with Irie. I had a mobile pet groomer come to the house and bath and groom her and she looks and I'm sure feels fantastic. She loves to eat, sleep and roll around in dried cat nip many times a day (which she has successfully distributed every where in the house). She has found many favorite sleeping spots. She is also very playful, when she is not eating or sleeping. We finally have a lap cat (something I've always wanted) and she loves to go from my lap to my husband's, Mario, lap and back and forth if we are on the couch watching TV. She is adorable. She also likes to sit on Mario's lap when he is working on the computer. Irie has fit in to our household with no problems at all and gets along great with the other 3 household cats.

Thank you so very much for saving this beautiful girl (we keep thinking she is a kitten as she is new to us, but she is really a 12 year old that has had some very hard knocks, which shows in that adorable little face). She is thriving in our home and is now absolutely showered with all kinds of love and we think she loves us too and feels safe.

I've attached some photos of our sweet girl, Irie.

Thank you so very much!

Huggie Bear, we LOVE you!

Huggie Bear is a kind of goofy, DMH, black kitty with a white spot on his chest. Huggie came to us on 4/16/09 from Oakland Animal Shelter where he was being held on medical reasons for extreme hair loss and scabs all over his body, poor muffin had a extreme flea allergies. We treat him with flea treatment and steroids monthly to keep his allergies in check and Huggie is a happy cat.

He's pretty loving and like his name implies, he gives frantic hugs. Huggie can be very vocal about being put down when he wants to hug though and would be best in a very cat savvy home without children. Mostly he's a wonderful, grumpy old man who wants lots of attention his way on his terms. We consider him a resident cat but wouldn't mind adopting him out to a savvy, loving home who sees him as the scruffy love muffin we know him to be.

Huggie had a senior screen upon arrival and was found to be healthy except for his flea allergies. This past week Huggie had a dental and another Senior Screen, blood panel and he's still fit as a fiddle. We're so glad our special boy is healthy and going to be around for a while, we just wanted to shout it out!
