"You buy the stamps - Halo buys the food for 1 million shelter pets."
... hope Ellen doesn't mind being our guest star for a day - read that she introduced these stamps on her show (actually, the real stars are the animals).
The U.S. Post Office is featuring Animal Rescue: Adopt a Shelter Pet commemorative postage stamps to raise awareness about the millions of homeless animals waiting for their forever homes in animal shelters across our nation.
You can preview or preorder the stamps featuring adopted pets from New Milford, Connecticut, photographed by Sally Anderson-Bruce at http://www.stampstotherescue.com/. If you mouse over the stamps, you can read a paragraph profile about each pet.
"Stamps of past years have helped to raise social awareness for worthy issues such as literacy, breast cancer awareness, organ and tissue donation, philanthropy, Alzheimer’s awareness, children’s health, and now in 2010, stamps are focusing public awareness on our homeless animal companions."
