collect towels and blankets, become a foster dog-mom, or volunteer some of your time at a shelter. The ASPCA lists the Top Ten Ways to Help Your Local Shelter.
Too little time to help? Here is something for you! The United States Postal Service will be issuing this year's social awareness stamp series: “Animal Rescue: Adopt a Shelter Pet” to increase public awareness about sheltered pets and encourage pet adoption and promote humane and responsible pet care. The stamps can be pre-ordered beginning today at usps.com/shop, stampstotherescue.com, or by calling 1.800.STAMP.24 (1.800.782.6724) and will be available on April 30, 2010.
You can help by getting the word out to your friends and family to buy these stamps. As part of this campaign, Ellen DeGeneres and Halo: Purely for Pets, will be donating a million meals to animal shelters around the country.
Small actions can make a difference for these animals.
Best to you and your sweet dog,
