License Plate

Do you love your pet like family?

Show it on a specialized license plate! 

This new plate and tags will be mailed to you by the state of North Carolina after the initial printing. As a new design, the state has up to six months to produce (to be received around June/July 2019).

This will NOT change your current registration date. The tags that would come with the plate would have your regular renewal month on them. Upon regular renewal, the yearly fee is $15, of which $5 would go to The Sergei Foundation to help sick and injured pets.

Feel comfortable about our charitable status and reputation by visiting to see our Platinum rating, or search using our Federal Tax ID 27-1016100. 

The design is below: It is a paw print with "My Pet is Family" logo on the First in Flight or First in Freedom North Carolina plates.

  • It will NOT change the date of your current registration. 
  • You can personalize the numbers/letters for the plate, but that is not free. It is $30, which all goes to the state, and is limited to 4 characters for this plate. The free version the state will assign the number.
