Come on - Let's all tell the President he needs to help Shelter Pets! WOOF!

Mimi's note: There was NO way I could read about this promotion and not promote it here on our bloggy. Don't think that a few, wonderful and compassionate citizens can't make a difference. In the past we saw our hope of a SPAY NEUTER USPS STAMP come to realization and just this year the USPS made available a stamp promoting SHELTER ADOPTIONS. 

Now we have two more opportunities to make a difference. We can help to feed shelter pets AND we can join with others to encourage our government and President Obama to declare April 30th NATIONAL ADOPT A SHELTER PET DAY.

So, pour yourself another cup of coffee or tea, grab your mouse and start clicking away! It's entirely FREE and just think of the good our collective voices can generate!

Courtesy and We already know that many of you are helping our pals at every day by playing their fun trivia game and, in turn, donating food to shelter pets in need. But now, you can make an even greater impact through the site by campaigning to President Barack Obama and asking him to declare April 30 National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day.

Simply visit, and click on the icon to send a pre-written letter to the President. It's as easy as that! And there's a bonus: For the first 50,000 e-mails sent, Ellen DeGeneres's pet food company Halo will donate a meal to for a hungry shelter cat or dog.

The campaign goal is to send 100,000 letters to the President by Sept. 30, and already, supporters have sent more than 40,000. According to, the Obama administration is aware of the campaign — maybe Bo had a hand in that? Regardless, it's just further proof that when pet lovers work together, their voices are most definitely heard.
