Horse featured on proposed Tennessee animal rescue license plate
Animal welfare supporters in Tennessee may soon be able to wear their cause on their bumper. An animal rescue specialty plate featuring a dog, cat and horse will be offered once 1,000 Tennesseans pre-order the plate.
Proceeds from the plate will be donated to various approved organizations around the state that work to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome companion animals. The first organizations will be announced soon via tnrescueplate.com. If the plates prove to be popular, other organizations may be brought in as beneficiaries in future years.
If successful, this plate will join a variety of other animal-related plates in Tennessee, including one celebrating the Tennessee Walking Horse.
The popularity of specialty plates has exploded over the past decade, with motorists advertising their favorite hobbies and causes on their cars for an additional fee over the regular cost of registration. Several states already have equine-themed plates available. Here are a few examples.
The “Support the Horse” plate in Colorado supports the Colorado Horse Development Authority. Learn more >>
“Discover Florida’s Horses” plates promote the Florida Agriculture Center and Horse Park and support the park’s development. The “Florida Horse Country” plate funds programs to assist at-risk youth in the state.
Nevada’s “Horse Power” plates benefit the wild horse and burro preservation efforts of the Community Foundation of Western Nevada. Horses are also featured on Nevada’s agriculture plate, which benefits the Nevada FFA Foundation and Department of Agriculture.
What a great idea to help horses and other rescue animals. I sure hope that 100 percent of the money goes to help these animals that really need it.
love it ! you forgot the new one for Oklahoma –(Home of Horse Slaughter) –what is our world coming to
Yes love it, I live in ct I wish they would do one.
These are very nice “sounding” programs….I hope the money does help the horses/other animals instead of the organizations pockets.
Great idea a win win
