International Society for Animal Rights (ISAR) has long-recognized that pet overpopulation is an issue of international importance, extending beyond political boundaries and taking the lives of homeless unwanted dogs and cats worldwide. These unfortunate animals, like those in the United States, suffer immeasurably while adversely impacting public health, safety, and the environment through no fault of their own.
For any organization, ISAR included, to engage in overpopulation and spay/neuter public education in other countries requires enormous human and financial resources. As a practical matter, with so much to be done in the United States alone little overpopulation-spay/neuter public education can currently be done abroad. But there is something that can be done to send the spay/neuter message to countless people around the world, and at no cost to American animal rights organizations or the other countries themselves.
Issuance of a spay/neuter stamp by the hundred-plus countries throughout the world.
Stamps issued by sovereign nations serve the purpose of raising the consciousness of the millions who send and receive them. Foreign commemorative stamps carrying the “Spay/Neuter” message can provide a way to educate the public about dog and cat overpopulation.
Hundreds of millions of people here and abroad have seen the American spay/neuter stamp issued in 2002.
ISAR has contacted several nations’ postal administration departments throughout the world. So far, we’ve received responses from members of stamp advisory committees in Hong Kong, Israel, and New Zealand. They’ve agreed to give ISAR’s Worldwide Spay/Neuter Stamp campaign serious consideration in their upcoming selection process for 2018 stamp suggestions.
