Stamps to the Rescue

Animal Rescue has another big advocate this week: the United States Post Office! They just announced their "Stamps to the Rescue" campaign. The postal stamps feature adorable pictures of 10 dogs and cats that found their forever homes by way of a shelter. Through the campaign, they hope to raise awareness about pet adoption. They have some big names promoting the campaign---including Ellen Degeneres, the Humane Society of the United States, Petfinder, and several others. During the Campaign, Halo pet food will be donating one million meals to shelter pets around the country.

Ellen described how you can help: "The first thing you can do is adopt a shelter pet, just like it says on the stamp. That's one less mouth to feed for these under-funded animal shelters across the country. More importantly, you'll give an abandoned pet a true home -- and change your own life in the process."

If your house is already full of four legged family members, you can help out by buying a book of stamps for $8.80 to support the campaign. If you want other merchandise from the campaign, check out the USPS store online.
