New Stamps Encourage Adopting a Shelter Pet

Stamp On April 30, the U.S. Postal Service will issue a set of "Animal Rescue: Adopt a Shelter Pet" first-class stamps. The stamps show photographs of ten shelter pets (five dogs and five cats), all of whom were homeless at one time, and all of whom have now been adopted.

Shown here is Trevor, a Labrador Retriever. Trevor and his 8-week old litter mates were found abandoned at a new home construction site. They were rescued and Trevor has been adopted. You can read the individual stories of the other nine pets here.

To celebrate the launch, Halo: Purely for Pets will donate a million meals to animal shelters around the country.

The stamps will be available in books of 20 at local post offices as of April 30, or you can pre-order stamps here.
