Stamps to the rescue!

These are so cute and for such an amazing cause!  I am going and getting mine at the Post office when they are available!  Postmaster General John E. Potter recently unveiled the Animal Rescue: Adopt a Shelter Pet commemorative postage stamps and announced the Stamps to the Rescue promotional campaign. 

"These stamps continue a Postal Service tradition of bringing attention to serious social issues of the letter at a time," says Potter.  "This campaign will increase public awareness about shelter pets and our hope is that it will encourage pet adoption and promote humane and responsible pet care."
The stamps went public on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.  The USPS is working with DeGeneres and Halo, Purely for Pets, a holistic pet care company she co-owns, to promote the campaign and bring greater attention to the cause. 
"This is a subject that I am extremely passionate about," says DeGeneres.  "By working together, we can find good homes for millions of adoptable, homeless and abandoned pets.  And until they get adopted, I'm happy to say that Halo and I are giving one million meals to shelter pets that are waiting for you."
The Stamps to the Rescue campaign provides information about the stamps and pet adoption.
