LOS ANGELES (AP) - The governor and his first dog are stepping up to the plate.
In April, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill giving pet lovers more time to sell specialty license plates. Supporters need to pre-sell 7,500 plates before the pet lovers plate can be cast. The campaign needs to sell about 3,000 more plates.
On Wednesday, Brown and his Welsh corgi, Sutter, appeared at a Petco store with actor Pierce Brosnan and TV "Dog Whisperer" Cesar Milan to promote plate sales.
Money from sales will be used to pay for free or low-cost spay and neuter programs around the state. Supporters say that will help reduce the pet population and decrease the euthanasia rate.
Using his own dog and cat as models, Brosnan painted the artwork for the plate.
