Want to Support Florida Spay and Neuter Grants?

In the United States, Roughly 6–8 million homeless cats and dogs enter shelters every year. Unfortunately, we know that more than 2.7 million otherwise healthy animals are euthanized annually, and that there are many more homeless pets that never make it to shelters. So, how can we bring that number down? The most effective way to decrease the number of animals put to sleep each year is by increasing access to free and low-cost spay and neuter programs.

Here’s how you can help Florida Animal Friend directly reduce the homeless pet population in our state:

  • Purchase a plate. This is the primary way we fund our annual spay and neuter grants. You can replace your current license plate with our specialty plate whether you’re up for renewal or not. Buy your plate today!

  • Spread the Word. Nonprofit animal rescue grants like ours are critical in the fight against dog and cat homelessness. Help raise awareness about the importance of low-cost spay and neuter programs by spreading the word however you can. We truly appreciate your support!
