"STAMP OUT" COMPANION ANIMAL OVERPOPULATION
It's official! The United States Postal Service will be issuing two Spay/Neuter Your Pet Stamps (one with a cat and one with a dog) as part of its U.S. Stamp Program for 2002.
The fabulous news about the twin Spay/Neuter stamps was confirmed on August 22nd in a phone call from Mr. David Failor, Manager for the Postal Service's Community Relations office, to Prevent a Litter Coalition (PaLC) STAMP OUT project coordinator Hope Tarr. PaLC will be working closely with Mr. Failor and the USPS in the coming weeks and throughout the year to plan promotional efforts both for the October unveiling as the larger scale launch celebration to take place in conjunction with the stamps' on-sale date in post offices nationwide.

Our DOGS need a Ride!
Are you flying anywhere? We relocate dogs all over the country. We would love to send one of our dogs on a plane with you. It's safer for a dog to fly with a person and it costs less. We would really appreciate it if you would let us know if you are flying and would be able to either take a dog along with you. One of our volunteers would meet you at the airport on both ends of the flight. There would be no cost to you. And we can promise doggy kisses in thanks!
