OHRR License Plate: Learn How To Order Your Plate Here! (FAQ Included)
The wait is over! We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the OHRR license plate. Now available to motorists across Ohio, you can easily showcase your love for bunnies and raise awareness for rabbits and rescue just by driving.
“This initiative will help rescue and find loving homes for house rabbits in Ohio”, says Beverly May, the Founding Director of Ohio House Rabbit Rescue. “By purchasing our specialty license plate, you’re directly contributing to the rescue, medical care, and adoption of abandoned, neglected, or abused pet rabbits. Funds raised will go towards supporting our adoption center, educational resources, and community outreach. Every plate sold helps us save more of these wonderful animals.”
Ohio House Rabbit Rescue is very grateful to State Representative Beth Liston, who sponsored legislation to create the license plate and to our volunteers, Tracy Wiczer, who led the effort, and Elizabeth Niswander, who designed the plate, for their help in making this logo license plate a reality.
