Adopt a Pet



The mission of Adopt a Pet 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.

The 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 (, will assume responsibilty for administering the donations received from the sales of the "Adopt a Shelter Pet" license plate.!/group.php?gid=276488508309&ref=ts
