You can purchase the Adopt-a-Shelter-Pet license plate directly from your local Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). NO CERTIFICATE IS NECESSARY FOR PURCHASE.
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.
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. Contact your DMV for more information about the cost and how to order.
