To Help Pets in Shelter & Rescue Organizations

This new weekly feature will give you one simple and actionable idea to help animals in shelters and rescue organizations waiting for their forever homes. Just do one thing, and it can really make a difference.

Buy Adopt a Shelter Pet postage stamps. Get your paws on the adorable Adopt a Shelter Pet stamps from the U.S. Postal Service and
help raise awareness about animals in shelters that need homes. The stamps, featuring five dogs and five cats that were once homeless, and have been available since April, but once they're gone – they're gone! While the stamps do not raise money for shelters directly, they do help spread the word about adoption, and will make your holiday cards look extra special.  They're available in limited quantities and if your post office is all out, buy them online at the USPS (just $1 for shipping).
