Why do we get the feeling that every third envelope going through the mail over the next month will have Teddy's furry mug on it?
Stamps to the Rescue, a new series of postage stamps spreading the word about shelter sweethearts, debuted at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in North Hollywood on Friday, April 30. Ellen DeGeneres was in attendance, in addition to various cat- and dog-loving dignitaries.
The stamps, which are 44 cents each, depict five real-life pooches and five sweet felines, all real pets awaiting adoption in photographer Sally Andersen-Bruce's Connecticut town. Teddy, the little guy we mentioned up top, is a furry Jack Russell. You can learn more about all the animals' stories at the Stamps to the Rescue site.
And you can buy the stamps, too. This is probably stock-up-on-the-stamps time for many animal people. Do not want to run low on these.
