How it Works
Georgia Pet Foundation relies on the sale of the NEW spay/neuter specialty tag to fund targeted spay/neuter programming across the state. For each $25 specialty tag fee, $19 ($20 for renewals) will go towards spay/neuter program grants to qualified organizations across the state.
Georgia Pet Foundation is focused on ending pet overpopulation in Georgia by supporting spay-neuter programs and conducting public education initiatives.
Through the sale of specialty license plates and private charitable donations the Georgia Pet Foundation (GPF) will fund eligible, statewide spay-neuter programs in an effort to eliminate pet overpopulation and the euthanasia of healthy and treatable cats and dogs. GPF was established as a 501(c)(3) non profit organization in April 2016 when Governor Deal signed legislation approving the new tag. Approximately 62% of homeless pets who enter Georgia county shelters are killed each year, costing an estimated 300,000 lives and taxpayers approximately $100 million. In addition to GPF’s spay-neuter grant program, we will also focus on public education initiatives to increase community awareness of the benefits and imperatives of spaying and neutering Georgia pets.

Spay Neuter Funding
For each $25 specialty tag fee, $19 ($20 for renewals) will go directly to Georgia Pet Foundation’s spay/neuter grant program.
Animal welfare organizations (humane societies, spay/neuter clinics, rescue organizations) and municipal animal shelters can apply. Organizations must be a recognized 501(c)(3 ) non-profit or a governmental agency.
