"Stamps To The Rescue" For Shelter Cats & Dogs

I just received an important email about a special cause going on right now, a cause so important I felt it worthwhile to divert from my normal blogging schedule to get the information to you right away.

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. ",,, American Humane, and The Humane Society Of The United States. Please read about the cause below or you can go to for more information. Below is the verbage from the website:

"Because Shelter Pets Deserve a First-Class Meal

In 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 Goal

We 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!!!!

  3. I needed these stamps, like, yesterday. Because I had to mail something. And because I don't know how I've lived for 29 years without them.
