JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The sale of "I'm Pet Friendly" license plates has raised more than $100,000 since 2009 for a pet spay and neuter program in Missouri.  
Through each specialty plate that is sold, $20 is donated to the program. The Missouri Department of Agriculture says that last year, the program provided $20,000 worth of grants for animal shelters, humane societies and non-profit rescue groups.
The money is used to spay and neuter pets before they are adopted or to help low-income owners who can't afford to fix their animals.
The department is accepting grant applications through the end of February. Last year's recipients include organizations located in Ava, Fenton, Cadet, Sedalia, Ray County, Richmond, Kansas City, Perryville and Rolla.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Supreme Court has rejected a challenge to a law that raised the state's licensing fees on animal shelters.

The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that the lawsuit by the Humane Society of the United States and two animal shelters was moot. The court noted that the suit challenged the procedure by which a 2010 licensing law was passed, but that lawmakers had changed the law again in 2011.

The 2010 law made animal shelters subject to the licensing fees already charged to dog breeders. The 2011 law raised Missouri's maximum licensing fee from $500 to $2,500 for commercial breeders, kennels and animal shelters.
