In 2012, Linda had an idea – to produce placemats that would highlight shelter pets in the area that are in need of adoption. In order to do this we needed to obtain some restaurants who would agree to use them daily, as well as some local businesses who would be willing to sponsor the shelter animals. This would ensure that thousands of people saw any adoptable shelter pets and the businesses that support them each day and give the pets a great chance to be visited or adopted at our local shelters.
There have been many happy adoptions since our first set of placemats were printed, as pets who have been spotted on the mat have been adopted into loving homes. We currently have our mats in restaurants throughout Fulton and Montgomery Counties and are always open to adding new ones. Please contact us if you know of a restaurant who would like to help get pets noticed by using our placemats. We currently distribute 50,000 placemats every 7 weeks.
A few years after we started our placemat business, we realized that we wanted to portray even more shelter pets and rescues in the area. That is how the idea came about to start a magazine called Crazy About Pets! This FREE publication is printed and distributed for free, once or twice a year, and is available online as well. This allows us to highlight area shelters and get important information out to pet lovers in our area. We have fabulous contributors who write articles pertaining to topics important to all pet lovers. We have also released one FOSTER magazine, highlighting the importance of fostering in the rescue community and how people can get involved.
Currently we print 10,000 full color glossy magazines and distribute them many area businesses who agree to display them for us.
We are grateful for our advertisers! (and so are the shelter animals!)
Many of our businesses that advertise with us have been with us since 2012. If you would like to join our animal-loving community as part of this exciting venture, please give us a call at (518) 842-6532 or contact us though our website for prices or a media kit.
Linda can design an ad for you or you are welcome to send in an ad in print-ready form.
