Charlie and Max represent the countless dogs and cats across the state of Florida who are not spayed or neutered; many of their offspring end up at shelters.


The funds raised from these tags are distributed to Florida Animal Friend (FAF) Inc.  FAF’s mission is to cut down on unwanted cats and dogs by supporting organizations who offer free or low-cost s/n services throughout Florida.  More than $478,000 has been awarded to 22 statewide organizations through the sale of the plate. For the list of recipients in 2016, click here.


You can get the new license plate at tax collector and tag agency offices beginning October 7.   There is a $25 fee in addition to the other registration fees.  There are thousands and thousands of animal lovers in Florida; according to FAF, almost 20,000  people have registered the tag. Ninety percent of the fees collected must go directly to support s/n programs; less than 10% can be used for promoting the plate, so your purchase will be put to good use!
