The mission of Adopt a Pet Foundation.org is to distribute funds raised through the sale of the Adopt a Shelter Pet license
plate in Colorado. $30 from the sale of each Adopt a Shelter Pet license plate will be granted to animal shelters and animal
rescues throughout the State of Colorado. It's primary focus is to support those shelters and rescues who may not customarily
have access to much needed funding for mandated spay/neuter programs and other medical expenses. It will also serve to raise
awareness of the need to adopt shelter and rescue animals.
The funding will initially go to those organizations
in under served communities who demonstrate the greatest need. Determination of need will consist of an application process
reviewed by the Adopt a Pet Foundation board. Those communities who have limited access to funding, who have an extraordinary
burden because of their rural setting and lack of education when it comes to the welfare of adoptable pets, will receive the
greatest priority and attention.
It is well known throughout the Colorado animal welfare community
which areas in the state often receive the greatest support from the surrounding community. It is the purpose of the Adopt
a Pet Foundation to serve those under represented areas who are currently under funded, under staffed and overwhelmed.
funds will be used for spaying/neutering, vaccinations and medical supplies, disease prevention, education and other services
vital to the welfare of domestic pets.
Once HB 10-1214, the "Adopt a Shelter Pet" license plate bill, becomes
law, the Colorado Pet Overpopulation Fund (Savecoloradopets.org), will assume responsibilty for administering the donations
received from the sales of the "Adopt a Shelter Pet" license plate.
