September 1997, the U.S. Postal Service has received THOUSANDS of letters
of support from humane groups, veterinary medical associations and colleges,
celebrities (Bob Barker; Betty White; Tony La Russa; Olympic triathlete Eric

We're three-quarters of the way to reaching our goal! Now, more than ever
