Ellen DeGeneres (if you don't know who she is you must be living under a rock! lol) has teamed with "Halo Purely For Pets Inc." (which she co-owns along with the many other hats she wears) and The United States Postal Service to help Shelter Pets all over the country. Supporters of this cause are:"Halo Purely For Pets Inc. ", www.adoptapetgifts.com, www.petfinder.com, American Humane, and The Humane Society Of The United States. Please read about the cause below or you can go to http://www.stampstotherescue.com/ for more information. Below is the verbage from the website:
"Because Shelter Pets Deserve a First-Class MealIn celebration of the new Animal Rescue: Adopt a Shelter Pet stamps, the Postal Service™, together with Ellen DeGeneres and Halo: Purely for Pets, is giving shelter pets around the country a First-Class Meal.
During the launch of the stamps, Halo will be donating a million meals to animal shelters around the country.
The GoalWe want more Americans to know about the millions of shelter pets that need good homes. Nearly half of the animals that enter animal shelters are euthanized. Many of these cats and dogs would have made a wonderful pet...if only given the chance.
You can make a difference. Adopt a pet, volunteer at a shelter, or just get the word out by buying these stamps."
This is an incredibly worthwhile cause, let's do all we can to support it, I know I will!!!!
