2010 Social Awareness Stamps
Post Office highlights shelter adoptions

 

On April 30, The United States Postal Service officially dedicates its social awareness stamps about adopting pets from shelters. As Lisa Wogan told us back in March (Stamps to the Rescue!), the post office has a history of creating stamps to highlight relevant social issues, including those concerning pets, and the most recent set of animal stamps features dogs and cats adopted from shelters. Be prepared to have an Awww moment because their faces are adorable.
 
Involved in the event are high-ranking members of the United States Postal Service, the American Humane Association, Petfinder.com, the Humane Society of the United States, and Ellen DeGeneres, whose work as an animal advocate has included introducing these stamps to the public on her talk show. The official dedication of these stamps takes place at The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in North Hollywood, Calif.
