: Stamps to the Rescue!

Stamps to the Rescue!

In an effort to make more people aware of the millions of pets in need of good homes, the US Postal Service is beginning the ‘Stamps to the Rescue’ campaign!

Starting April 30th stamps featuring the photographs of pets rescued from shelters will go on sale.

.Shelter Pet Stamps.

This campaign continues the USPS history of raising awareness of serious social issues through commemorative stamps. 

The ten stamp photos (5 dogs and 5 cats) were all adopted in photographer Susan Anderson-Bruce’s hometown of New Milford, Connecticut.

Thanks for sharing Laura. Gives me a whole new outlook on the USPS.

Kudos to the USPS for another "raising awareness" campaign. I'll bet if they raised the price one penny and then donated that penny to shelters across the country, people would still buy them.

HI Laura...it is sad how many pets are dropped off and unwanted after a short while.  This is a good campaign
