Our signs... RED, WHITE & BLUE!

Our street signs are designed to drive traffic to local shelters. Many families choose to adopt from breeders, pet stores and organizations that import dogs from out-of-state simply because they are not aware of the location of their local municipal shelter. It is an integral part of our mission to highlight local shelters as a viable alternative to breeders. You have the ability to decide what each sign says, where they will be located and how many signs are required. They can be placed on a green background sign, if required, by state or federal traffic sign codes.

    • Where Do They Go? - It is important to draw traffic towards your shelter from a main road or thoroughfare. Signs should also lead visitors to your shelter from more than one direction.
    • How Many Signs Do We Need? - The further your shelter is from a main road or thoroughfare, the number of turns and the number of paths potential visitors may take will impact the number of signs you will need.
