Stamps to the Rescue

Hey! A good thing from the U.S Postal Service. We still send a little bit of mail, right? Notes to friends, birthday cards, congratulations or thank-yous. Put a little fun on it with one of these awesome stamps just released.

The photo is a pane of 10 44–cent Animal Rescue: Adopt a Shelter Pet special stamps.

On April 30, 2010, in North Hollywood, California, the Postal Service™ issued a 44–cent, Animal Rescue: Adopt a Shelter Pet special stamp in ten designs, designed by Derry Noyes of Washington, DC.

With these 10 stamp designs, the U.S. Postal Service hopes to raise awareness of the need to adopt shelter pets.

The pets depicted on the stamps were photographed by Sally Andersen-Bruce near her home in New Milford, Connecticut. All had been homeless at one time; all but one had been adopted when they were photographed.

It’s easy to get them. Just click here:



This is Mya. Noelle shared her very cute picture with us when she heard about this dog blog on Facebook. Thanks, Noelle, for showing us Mya’s happy face and her exuberant love for tennis balls!

NOTE: We have many more photos of adorable pets to share over the coming weeks. Watch for YOUR pet’s favorite picture.

    Thanks for the heads up about the stamps, BJ. So cute and will be fun to use for special people–like you, and the grands…

    Great idea, BJ. Next time I need stamps I’ll pick some up (assuming our local PO has any; they’re usually out of most standard and unusual items I want). All the best, and keep up the good work.
