We are proud to announce that our submission of “Choose adoption” was chosen as one of the special commemorative 2013 Canada Post stamp sets. This was no small feat as in a given year Canada Post will receive more than 300 proposed topics to consider!
The limited edition “Choose Adoption” 5-stamp set was launched on April 22nd 2013 and sold out fast. Mrs. Laureen Harper, Minister Steven Fletcher, Deepak Chopra, President and CEO of Canada Post, Ms. Linda Barber, President of the Ottawa Humane Society and Barbara Cartwright, CEO of the CFHS unveiled the stamps.
These beautiful stamps promote the importance of animal adoption and feature compelling images of shelter animals. The CFHS has worked closely with Canada Post providing background information in support of the stamp set that will encourage Canadians to adopt a pet and reduce the number of unwanted animals in Canada.
Due to the success of the “Choose Adoption” stamp the CFHS is now in discussion with Canada Post about a possible “Spay/Neuter” stamp!
