Orders being accepted for Spay-Neuter plates
To The Daily: The Alabama Veterinary Medical Foundation has received approval from the Alabama Department of Revenue for individuals to begin placing orders for its Spay-Neuter license plate. Like other specialized tags, the cost of the S/N license is $50, with $41.25 of each sale going to the foundation to assist low-income families with the cost of spaying and neutering their pets. One thousand tags must be pre-sold within 12 months in order for the program to be implemented.
The 12-month period began Nov. 1. Supporters who wish to purchase the Spay-Neuter license plate may request a “Commitment to Purchase” application and pay the $50 fee at the revenue commissioner’s office. When the spay-neuter plates are available, drivers must present the original “Commitment to Purchase” and receipt for $50 to the license office where the original application was completed. They will trade the S/N tag for your current standard license plate.
Our bordering neighbor states of Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi and Florida already have animal-friendly license plates. Hurrah for Alabama!
