Pet Adoption Theme of Canadian Stamps

First Day of Issue: April 22, 2013 - Canada

Canada has issued a set of five new postage stamps focusing on pet adoption.

(Ottawa, ON) – Canada Post has released a new five-stamp issue focusing on pet adoption. Developed in collaboration with the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies (CFHS), the series is destined to call attention to the plight of homeless pets in Canada.

The stamps showcase real shelter animals, with their individual stories on the back of the stamp booklet. Each animal image is close cropped to show the most “personality.”

Detaching the stamps allows users to symbolically free the animal from its pen. In the background behind each animal is a black-and-white sketch of what could be its dream home.
