MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ Kansans can use their vehicles to show they support pets.

Revenue from a new ``I'm Pet Friendly'' license plate will be used to reduce the stray animal population. Proceeds from the sale of the plates will support scholarships for Kansas State veterinary students who will work with local animal shelters, particularly in spay/neuter programs.

With a one-time production fee of $45.50 and an annual donation of $50, the new plate can be picked up at county tag offices across the state.

The dean of Kansas State's College of Veterinary Medicine, Ralph Richardson, says the program can help improve the quality of animal health throughout the state.
