All revenue from the sales of Adopt-a-Shelter-Pet license plates is dedicated to the spay/neuter, veterinary medical treatment, and microchip identification (implant and registration) of pet animals in the care of shelters, rescue groups, and animal control agencies across Colorado.

Purchase your plate at your local DMV

You can purchase the Adopt-a-Shelter-Pet license plate directly from your local Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). 

The cost to purchase the plate includes an initial $30 donation to the Colorado Pet Overpopulation Fund to benefit homeless animals, 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 your registration fees. At the time of renewal, the plate holder will be charged a $25 annual donation. You can also get a personalized Adopt-a-Shelter-Pet plate.

Adopt-a-Shelter-Pet plates may be purchased at any time during the year. You will receive credit for the time remaining between the purchase date and your annual license plate renewal date; that money will be applied to the new purchase. You may also purchase an Adopt-a-Shelter-Pet plate upon annual renewal of your regular plates.
