Bio cards with pic of an adoptable animal and their bio on it, so people can take them home, or take it to the adoption counselor during an adoptathon. Include personality traits (termperament), home requirements (no kids, no cats, tall fence), special needs, and other info.
Wish List- great keepsake item for people to keep in their wallets, include your group’s name, contact info, and top wish list items for donations, either new items or items from homes and businesses.
Donation Receipts- Use this as an on-the-spot donation receipt, have a blank for item’s name, item description, with a signature spot for your treasurer or volunteer to sign that they received the item.
Education cards– Leave a biz card on cars or at homes with info about keeping pets out of hot cars in the summer and inside homes during winter.
Thank you cards- for volunteers, put your group’s logo on the front and a memorable verse.
Memoriam cards- Leave blank inside, or just have a small inscription about legacies. Leave space to HANDWRITE a thank-you to the family for the donation in memory of their loved one.
Congratulations- Congratulate the family on their recent adoption, or the 1 year anniversary of their adoption!
Cards for sale- Create notecards with your logo on them, or a sympathetic photo of an adoptable pet, and sell them at tabling events or at your shelter location. This works great for Christmas, but can easily be adapted to a belated birthday card using a sad animal face, or a friendship card with two animals snuggling together.
Unique item that can be cost effective, larger than the average business card, and colorful/ glossy enough to stand out from the crowd. Use this option for a wish list, event information to be mailed to attendees (as a save the date card), use as an adoption promotion, list important information about area services (spay/ neuter clinics), or a host of other ideas.
