We Love Our Pets License Plates

Shop for animals with a "We Love Our Pets" license plate. Plates come either standard or personalized with cute pet characters designed by artist Brian Bassett. Twenty-eight dollars of your fee goes towards the Washington Federation of Animal Care and Control Agencies who use that money to offer spay/neuter grants. CFA received one of those grants and helped spay/neuter over 60 dogs with it. For cost information and to purchase, please visit the Washington State vehicle licensing offices.   To help spread the word about the plate, please download, print, and distribute the We Love Our Pets flyers.

Operation Dog

Operation Dog Rescue (ODR), led by Vivian Dahlin,  specializes in the capture of “at-large,” lost, missing, abandoned dogs – dogs who are living on their own and going out of their way to avoid human contact.  This may be a lost dog with an owner, or a dog with no owner that is loose in a specific area.  ODR has a track record of successful dog captures that allows us to offer informed suggestions to owners [or a designated contact person], and implement well tested trapping methods that frequently result in the capture of even the most elusive dogs.  For more information contact Vivian at or 360. 580. 9927.  Or visit
