Pet celebration

During the recent Pet stamps first-day-of-issue ceremony at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, NV, fans of a variety of lifestyle-enhancing domesticated animals enthusiastically cheered the much-anticipated release.

The special stamp collection features 20 different animals — two dogs, two cats, two birds, two fish, four reptiles, five rodents, a crustacean, a rabbit and a horse. Participating in the dedication event were Chairman of the Postal Service Board of Governors James Bilbray; Postal Service Chief Marketing and Sales Officer James Cochrane; Doug Poindexter, President, World Pet Association; Robert Vetere, Chairman, Pet Leadership Council and Founder, Popovich Comedy Pet Theater, Gregory Popovich.

“More than half of all U.S. homes have at least one pet, and that number increases every year,” said Cochrane. “The most common are cats and dogs, but all types of pets provide love, happiness and companionship for their owners. The bonds we create with animals improve our physical and emotional well-being, and our pets truly become members of the family.”

The Pets stamp collection is now available for purchase at usps.com/stamps, at 800-STAMP24 (800-782-6724), and at Post Offices nationwide.
