Buckley the pup – now all grown up – graces one of the stamps, along with West Highland Terrier cross Daisy, also adopted from The Lost Dogs’ Home.
The pair happily greeted Home supporters and dignitaries and posed for photos with their oversized stamps.
“It is fantastic to see Australia Post, through this stamp issue, getting behind us in an endeavour to promote the Home’s dogs for adoption. Our dogs make great pets.
They really appreciate the opportunity of a new, loving home.” Commented Dr Graeme Smith, OAM.
Australia Post Philatelic Group Manager, Noel Leahy, said: “Australians have a great love of dogs, but it’s a sad reality that many dogs end up in animal shelters. We hope this stamp will assist in promoting responsible pet ownership and support the dedication of shelters.”
