Dear Friends of the Animals and the Spay/Neuter Stamps!

We are delighted to announce that 8,000 American Partnership for Pets Action Kits were mailed to community animal organizations on August 6, 2002.

We would like to take the opportunity to sincerely thank PETsMART Charities for making American Partnership for Pets, and these action kits possible.

PETsMART Charities, an American Partner of course! provided significant seed funding for this collaborative program when it was a mere vision, and they have believed in us and supported us every step of the way. Thank You PETsMART Charities for making the American Partnership for Pets dream come true!

We would also like to thank the American Humane Association for their tremendous generosity, in donating their staff and skill toward the design and production of these kits. They are a true American Partner.

And last but not least, we would like to thank the US Postal Service for being a tremendous and caring organization, and for so sincerely working alongside us toward making a difference.


The Action Kits include information about holding events with your local post office, the one year (or longer!) APP program schedule, how to become an official community American Partner (for shelters and veterinarians and animal organizations), spay/neuter stamp merchandise information and much, much more!

If you are a community animal organization and you were not included in the mailing, not to worry -- additional kits are available for download in the private sign in section for veterinarians and groups on Pets 911. ( If you are not registered, you may register your practice or organization for free, log in and you may then download the .pdf file. If you need help, email Colleen or Julie at
