Mouthpieces is a department from Animal Sheltering magazine designed to help you communicate your messages to the public.

We run pieces that you can use; just click to download and then add your organization's contact information and hang them in your lobby or hand them out at the front desk.

New: We're opening the Mouthpieces department to submissions! So many shelters and rescues have produced fantastic public service announcements. If you've created one you'd like to share so that other groups can use it, please submit it to us. We’ll print some of the best ones in the magazine.

The small print: Submitted PSAs can retain your organizational branding, but must have space for other groups to add their contact info so that they’ll be able to use the PSAs in their own communities.

The technical stuff: Our preferred file format is PDF/X-1a:2001 with crop marks at least .125 inches from artwork. Accepted alternate file formats are QuarkXPress, InDesign, Illustrator, or Photoshop. If an ad is submitted in a format other than PDF, graphics and fonts must be included — images must be CMYK and 300 dpi. Line art must be at least 600 dpi. The dimensions must be (or must be adjustable to) full page including bleed: 8.375 inches by 10.75 inches; live area/non bleed: 7.125 inches by 9.5 inches.

To submit a PSA for use in Mouthpieces, please contact us at
