Each year the US Postal Service produces a set of commemorative stamps to bring awareness to a different social issue. This year shelter animals are getting the spotlight! This special set of stamps features photos by photographer Sally Andersen-Bruce of animals that were all adopted from a shelter in New Milford, CT. The stamps are part of a campaign called Stamps to the Rescue, with Ellen DeGeneres as the spokeswoman, that seeks to raise awareness about adopting pets from shelters.
The stamps will be issued in a special ceremony on April 30, but you can pre-order a set now at StampsToTheRescue.com, plus you can read about each of the animals featured on the stamps.
