Good news for shelter animals everywhere!

In collaboration with her company Halo, Ellen DeGeneres is teaming up the U.S. Postal Service to participate in a special stamp campaign to benefit shelter animals.

The new stamps will help raise money and awareness for rescued animals, a subject DeGeneres feel very strongly about.

“This is a subject that I am extremely passionate about. By working together, we can find good homes for millions of adoptable, homeless and abandoned pets,” said DeGeneres. “And until they get adopted, I’m happy to say that Halo and I are giving one million meals to shelter pets that are waiting for you.”

In the past, USPS stamps have helped raise awareness for Alzheimer’s disease, sickle cell anemia and the Amber Alert.

The stamps can be pre-ordered by going to Shop.USPS.com or by calling 1.800.STAMP.24 (1.800.782.6724). Sales at post offices begin April 30.

    Good on Ellen D for raising awareness about our homeless friends.

    I own a shelter dog and he is the best dog in the world. He is friendly, happy, gets home cooked meals and gets taken to training classes twice a week which he loves, and to the beach at least once a week. An absolute joy, i hope all people will consider getting a shelter animal as a pet and have as much fun with their pet as I do.
