September 16, 2002

On Friday, the U.S. Postal Service will release the country's first stamps dedicated to raising the awareness of the health, behavioral and societal benefits of spaying and neutering pets. The stamps feature Kirby the puppy and Samantha the kitten. Both pets were adopted from animal shelters and were neutered and spayed, respectively.

The Humane Society of Washington County will hold an open house Saturday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. featuring a representative from the Hagerstown Post Office. Stamps will be sold on an envelope with a special cancellation. Tracie Harris, registered veterinary technician, will be available to answer questions. Educational materials will be available in the humane education room and refreshments will be served.

The Humane Society of Washington County is located at 13011 Maugansville Road. For more information, call 301-733-2060.
