Trick or Treat Candy Card Template

Halloween candy card template featuring adoptable pets

Spread the word about your adoptables and make it known that your organization is approachable, friendly, and part of the community! First thing’s first, we got this great idea from our friends at Animal Care Centers of NYC, who created and distribute templates featuring adoptables that can be attached to Halloween candy!

  1. This template is one card, front and back (or mix and match) with an editable space to add a photo of a pet and update their name and information as well as customize your organization’s url and logo.
  2. Once you’ve updated things, our biggest tip is to export as a JPG. Do this several times for as many adoptables as you’d like to feature!
  3. Then use your JPG files of different animals and add them to a word or google doc and create a printable page of several cards. You can probably fit 6 per page on an 8.5×11 page.
  4. Save that document you’ve created as a PDF and you’re ready to offer a full page printable that the community can download and run with! Here’s an example from Artists Helping Animals member Monica Wayne Photography for AZ K9 Rescue

Canva is a graphic design platform that allows users to create social media graphics, presentations, posters, and other visual content. Most excitingly, it can be used for free or with a paid account (free for nonprofits!). For our purposes, it provides the perfect platform to provide plug-and-play designs that you can customize for your shelter or rescue. Download this Quick-Read Instructional Guide to get started
