<div class="quote-block">RALEIGH, N.C. The N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Animal Welfare Section reimbursed counties almost $400,000 for spay/neuter procedures last year, thanks in part to purchases of "Animal Lovers" specialty license plates.<br><br>
The procedures were intended for pets belonging to low-income residents.<br><br>
In all, 27 counties requested more than $432,000 in reimbursements for more than 8,000 surgeries performed. The Animal Welfare Section was able to reimburse $398,955.<br><br>
The N.C. Veterinary Medical Association says spaying or neutering decreases the risk of cancer in dogs and cats, decreases aggressive behaviors and eliminates most urine marking behaviors, among a host of other benefits.</div>

That's really great to hear. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> More people should propose similar specialty plates in other states.

Somebody proposed this years ago in my state, but it never got off the ground.

I'd try this, but I live in Tennessee, a state with four bible theme parks and a "don't say gay" bill in legislation right now...so it's probably not time yet.
