Routt County Humane Society Receives Grant From Colorado Pet Overpopulation Fund

Routt County Humane Society Receives $15,000 from the Colorado Pet Overpopulation Fund (CPOF) License Plate grant

Routt County Humane Society (RCHS) has received a $15,000 grant from the Colorado Pet Overpopulation Fund (CPOF), License Plate Grant program to provide medical treatment and microchips for shelter animals. Since 2011, Adopt-a-Pet License plate sales have generated more than 1.5 million to fund essential veterinary services that enhance the adoptability of shelter pets and prevent pet overpopulation. Across Colorado, there are over 15,000 Adopt-a-Pet license plates on the road!!

Elaine Hicks, Executive Director, said “these funds are critical for the provision of quality veterinary care and diagnostics as many of the stray and homeless animals received by RCHS need medical care. We are so grateful to be a recipient of this funding as it furthers our mission of advocating for animals and the people who love them.”

The cost to purchase the plate includes an initial $30 donation to CPOF, plus the $50 standard fee for a Special Use License Plate, which goes to the State. The total price for the license plate is $80 in addition to the registration fees. At the time of renewal, the plate holder will be charged a $25 annual donation, which is such a minimal amount for the thousands of shelter animals who benefit from your generosity and find their “furever” homes. For more information, please go to www.coloradopetfund.org/purchase-plate or check your local Department of Motor Vehicles. 

Routt County Humane Society is a 501© (3) not-for profit organization established in 1985 with the mission of being a nonprofit community resource dedicated to encouraging respect for the dignity and worth of all animals by providing safe haven, promoting adoption, and decreasing the number of unwanted pets. We believe in second chances and are committed to advocating for animals and the people who love them. For more information go to www.routthumane.org.
