The new stamps are here....

The new stamps are finally here!  I could hardly wait!  I had Beth pick them up on Saturday for me but am just getting to my letter writing now....
These  are the Adopt a Shelter Pet stamps.
This is what I found out about the stamps and why it is a good thing to buy them....

In celebration of the new Animal Rescue: Adopt a Shelter Pet stamps, the Postal Service™, together with Ellen DeGeneres and Halo: Purely for Pets,
is giving shelter pets around the country a First-Class Meal.

During the launch of the stamps, Halo will be donating a million meals to animal shelters around the country.


Isn't that great!  I hope all of the animals that are in shelters can find good, loving forever homes FAST!  And until they do this will help out on getting some food in their tummys....

I have to get busy writing letters to all of my friends!  I will really keep Mailman Mike busy now!

Later -- Remington -- could you get me another pen, this one is about out of ink -- out!

We are 'fraid to buy stamps cuz the Post Office changes their prices all the time but what a great idea!!

And we are saying a belated Happy Birthday to Jon!! our mom has been so busy collapsing from too much tennis last weekend, Halle had some sickies but she is all better now and somebody at Mom's office got set on fire (Ina: someone had to be let go) so there was extra work too. Yikes what a week we had last week!!!

JC said...

MISTAYA said...

Hi Remington, I saw M.O.M. stick one of those on her son's birthday card this morning. She was saying what a wonderful idea the stamps were and thinks they will help a lot of animals like me. She seemed very happy. Hugs and wags, Mistaya

Cat said...

We can't get those stamps over here (in Europe)...can anyone send one to us? Or could you show us a close-up of what they look like? What a wonderful idea. We hope lots and lots of dogs and cats get really wonderful food! We also hope they get wonderful, loving homes!! Purrs, Lautrec and Tiny

Bruschi said...

OH great stamps! I am sending mommy to the post office pronto! We must have those so we can help out homeless pets too!
And how on earth are you holding that pen!? BOL

Hugs and Licks, Bruschi

Petsitgal said...

I think the stamps are a great idea and they are very purty but I sure do wish my picture was on one of those stamps or may on ALL of the stamps. Why didn't the Postal people ask me to model for them? I am very nice to the Postage Man when he delivers things to our door so why was I left out? And....why were you left out? Hmmmm...I am very upset but I am glad the stamps are going to help people adopt homeless pets, aren't you?

JD and Max said...

Remington, you are one cool dude, you always look so great in your photos! Our FH keeps on squealing at your posts, we might need to consider wearing ear plugs in the future.....he he he! That is such a great cause, getting nommies to less fortunate doggies is a wonderful thing indeed! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Busy Buttons said...

That's awesome! I need to have my mom go get me some of those stamps, too. We gotta help the shelter and rescue pets! (I was a rescue doggie myself until just 5 months ago!)

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh that is right they are finally out! We saw them at the post office but they weren't available yet (so we got the Simpsons instead). WE will have to go get some - thanks for the reminder!!

The Army of Four said...

That's so cool! Three out of the four of us were in the slammer before we were adopted - what a great way to support/help homeless puppers!!!

Hey Remi! Our Meowm went and got some of those too! We are so very glad there is a stamp that talks about rescuing animals! And all those meals for the shelter animals.....WOO HOO!!!

You look very studious writing your letters!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Oh Remmy, that is such a swell pic of you and the new stamps! Thanks for the reminder. Mom kept asking the postal clerks, "are they here yet?" and they kept saying, "May30th". Now she has forgotten about them...until your reminder. Thanks!

Mom got a whole bunch of these stamps, too! They arrived yesterday and are very cool...AND are for a wonderful cause. Hopeful they might cause a revival of the gentle sophisticated art of letter writing.
