News Georgia adds Spay/Neuter Animal Rights Tag

The Georgia Department of Agriculture last week showcased the first animal sterilized under the spay/neuter program funded by the Dog and Cat License Plate. "The need for the Dog and Cat Sterilization Program is evident in the number of dogs and cats who end up in shelters," said Commissioner Tommy Irvin. "Sales of these commemorative license plates will provide the vital funding needed to help us control Georgia's homeless pet population." The Humane Association of Georgia (HAGA) and other partners lauded the program, which will fill a critical need in reducing the number of Georgia's homeless dogs and cats. In fact, animal overpopulation costs Peach State taxpayers millions each year. Roughly $10 million was spent in the 10-County Metro Atlanta area in 2002 for animal control. Every year, thousands of dogs and cats must be killed in shelters throughout Georgia because they have no home. In just four years, an un-sterilized female cat and her offspring can produce 20,000 kittens. Similarly, an un-altered female dog and her offspring can produce 4,000 puppies in seven years. The Dog and Cat License Plate can help change these staggering numbers. The Dog and Cat Sterilization Program will save money and lives by reducing the number of animals being controlled, housed and killed in animal shelters. The new Dog and Cat License Plate goes on sale in county tag offices statewide December 1st for a $25 one-time fee. Proceeds from the Dog and Cat License Plate support the Georgia Department of Agriculture's newly-created program, which helps pay for spay/neuter procedures and reduces the Peach State's homeless pet population.
