Do you have unsocialized cats that need a home? Use this Barn Cat Flyer to find them safe forever homes!
BARN CAT FLYER
I started volunteering at our local animal shelter and realized a lot of the flyers needed to be updated in order to make them easy to read and also easy to share on social media.
This is a barn cat flyer that is similar to the one I made for our local animal shelter.
CREATE YOUR OWN FLYER
I created this flyer in PicMonkey. You can use a service like PicMonkey or Canva to create your own that is similar.
If you want to use mine as a template I’ve made that easy for you too! Sign up for our newsletter here and get instant access to the flyer so that you can add your own contact information and photo if you choose! Once you download it to your computer you will just need to use a program like PicMonkey or Canva to add a text overlay with your contact information and maybe your logo. You can also add a photo that you choose!
WHAT TO SAY ON YOUR FLYER
Keep in mind that it’s best to keep the information on the actual flyer clear and concise and then add your contact information. Flyers that are distracting with too many pictures or too much text are hard to read.
Even if you don’t include everything under “consider” on your flyer it is important that you speak with each potential adopter regarding these items.
- Contact Information (email address, phone number, physical address)
THINGS TO CONSIDER:
- Cost: Do you offer barn cats for free, only with an adoption fee, or donation requested?
- What are they required to do? Examples: provide food, water, and shelter
- Transportation: Do they pick up? Do you deliver? What kind of acclimation period will be required?
- Safety: Do you visit the homes, barns, workshops? Help them set up the area for the cats?
