Following the popular cats stamp issue, Vanuatu Post releases an issue on the Dogs of Vanuatu in conjunction with Sam's Animal Welfare Association.
Founded in 2005 in Port Vila, Sam's Animal Welfare Association works with the community in Vanuatu to provide animal welfare services and education programs especially in schools, on the humane treatment of all animals in Vanuatu and the many benefits of owning such pets.
Sams' is a non-profit charity registered under the Vanuatu Charitable Associations Act and is a member of the World Society for the Protection of Animals. Funds are raised via a book exchange scheme in Vanuatu and through "yellow box" donations. These boxes are located throughout Port Vila and Vanuatu Post now has such a box in the Main Post Office in support of this worthy project. Their aim is to ensure that Vanuatu’s best friends are generally healthy, happy and well cared for.
