The Hub City Humane Society (HCHS) has been awarded a $2,500 “I Care for Animals” car tag grant to financially assist in the spaying and neutering of their shelter animals.  The “I Care for Animals” Car Tag Program offers an opportunity for Mississippians to purchase a specialty license plate to benefit homeless animals within the state.  The license plates are available for purchase at the County Courthouse. 

The proceeds from these purchases go into a state animal care fund, which is distributed to animal shelters and humane organizations.  This program is in its ninth year of assisting animal shelters primarily with spay/neuter programs, and also with general projects that benefit homeless animals.  To date the program has awarded funds to over 55 organizations. 

The “I Care for Animals” Car Tag Program is administered by the Mississippi Board of Animal Health.  An advisory panel comprised of knowledgeable volunteers from various animal shelters located throughout the state assists State Veterinarian Dr. Jim Watson and the Board of Animal Health in selecting qualified applicants.   For more information on the “I Care for Animals” Car Tag Program visit
