Florida – 4/1/2007 – Florida Animal Friend, Inc. has set out to save lives of the state’s cat and dog population by preventing overpopulation through the awarding of grant money to local non-profit organizations for spay/neuter programs throughout the state.
The fast approaching deadline for the 2007 grant application to be received by Florida Animal Friends is April 15, 2007.
Grant application forms, details and instructions can be found on the Florida Animal Friend website, www.floridaanimalfriend.org.
In 2006 the Florida Animal Friend license plate program provided funds to 18 programs throughout the state by assisting these local programs to develop more comprehensive and far-reaching dog and cat spay/neuter programs.
Florida Animal Friend, president, Larry Dee, DVM is extremely grateful for the strong support the program has received. “After three years of work it has been a great delight to participate in the distribution of $202,000 in grant monies to Florida non-profits for the neutering of companion animals.”
“Thanks to the generosity of the Florida animal lovers who buy the spay/neuter license plate, we can put a brake on the pet overpopulation epidemic and reduce the senseless killing of unwanted dogs and cats in the state.”
Florida Animal Friend’s specialty license plates are available at all state-wide DMV locations and can be purchased for $25 in addition to renewal fees. All funds benefit the further development of state-wide spay/neuter programs.
