Adopt a Shelter Pet
This is a pane of 20 44 cent Animal Rescue: Adopt a Shelter Pet special stamps.
On April 30, 2010, in North Hollywood, California, the Postal Service will issue a 44-cent, Animal Rescue: Adopt a Shelter Pet special stamp in ten designs, designed by Derry Noyes of Washington, DC.
With these 10 stamp designs, the U.S. Postal Service hopes to raise awareness of the need to adopt shelter pets.
The pets depicted on the stamps were photographed by Sally Andersen-Bruce near her home in New Milford, Connecticut. All had been homeless at one time; all but one had been adopted when they were photographed.
