The law (A-2197) provides for the creation of a Humane State license plate. The plate will be designed to display the words “HUMANE STATE”. Surplus fees will be deposited into a special fund known as the “Humane State License Plate Fund.” The proceeds of the fund are to be annually appropriated to the Animal Welfare Federation of New Jersey (AWFNJ) to be used to provide grants to county societies for the prevention of cruelty to animals for their shelter and care.
