Like several states, Tennessee offers an "Animal Friendly" license plate. Â Tenn. Code Ann. Â§55-4-290 Â The proceeds from the sale of these plates go into a fund "to be used exclusively for grants to non-profit organizations or governmental agencies to provide low-cost spaying and neutering of unsterilized animals to prevent and/or reduce animal overpopulation".
The fund receives about $15 per license plate.
