Grand County businesses help animals in need
June 4, 2010
To the Editor:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank many of our local businesses and organizations for their help in the promotion of our new stamps. The commemorative stamps are called Animal Rescue: Adopt a Shelter Pet featuring animals adopted from shelters. These stamps continue a 50-plus year tradition of the Postal Service bringing attention and awareness to serious social issues of the day … one letter at a time.
The stamps feature five cats and five dogs that have been adopted from different shelters. A big thanks to Betty’s Bakery, Blue Water Cafe, Byers Peak Family Medicine, Circle D Grocery, Grand County Animal Shelter, Kopy Kat, Mountain Food Market, Pet Pals, Sagebrush BBQ and Grill, and Sky-Hi News for your donations and support.
Thanks also to our community members that braved another snowy spring day to partake in the festivities. Pet Pals received over two hundred dollars in donations during the event.
Thanks to all who participated. Keep those letters coming.
