Next time you’re looking for a pet rescue one from a shelter.
Many cats and dogs are available for adoption at your local animal shelter. These aren’t rejects, just animals looking for a forever home.
New stamps for April 30, 2010/USPS
Ellen DeGeneres is teaming with the United States Postal Service (USPS) to publize the need for homes for these animals. The USPS is issuing a set of stamps on April 30, 2010 to give this a high profile.
All the animals pictured are real rescued pets that have been given new homes. Ellen had Postmaster-General John Potter on her show recently to announce the program and the new stamps.
