About Us

And in 2004:

We will begin offering a community email newsletter service for animal shelters in 2004. is a service of EcoScribe Communications.

We also operate a website offering writing tips for nonprofit organizations called

Shelter Newsletters is a publishing service designed especially for staff at busy animal shelters. You've got better things to do than spend days and weeks planning, researching, writing, editing, proofreading, and designing a newsletter for your community. Let us do it for you!

Our special turnkey system produces a great newsletter that you'll be proud of, while saving you time, frustration, and money. Just pick the page length, number of colors, and a design template, and we'll get started. You can be involved in story selection for each issue as much or as little as you want.

Below are our standard newsletter options. These options will work for most animal shelters and humane societies. Sticking with these options saves us time, which saves you money! However, if you want something different (e.g. more pages or a unique layout designed especially for your shelter), let us know and we'll be happy to work up an estimate for you.

Length: 4 pages or 8 pages

Colors: 1 color (b/w), 2 colors, or full-color

Designs: Pick from our design gallery, based on the number of colors you selected.

Articles: Approximately half of your newsletter will include "all-purpose," general interest articles that could appear in any shelter newsletter. These include articles on pet care, bringing a new pet home, and other humane issues. We have a large selection that you can choose from, or we can choose a good mix for you.

The other half of your newsletter will include articles that we write just for you, about your specific organization and its activities. We will work with you on each issue to decide what you'd like included. Don't worry about coming up with story ideas--we have plenty of suggestions for you to pick from if you have any trouble coming up with ideas.

The Final Product

This is your newsletter. . .while we'll do all the work, you will be given an opportunity to make any changes you like to your draft newsletter (including any changes you want to make to the general interest articles, just in case something we've written conflicts with what you would write yourself).

Once you have approved your newsletter, we'll provide you with a CD of all the files you'll need to have your newsletter printed at a professional print shop. If you'll be photocopying a one-color newsletter, we can send you a laser printout as well if you like. For a small fee, we will also include a PDF file of your newsletter so you can post it on your website. We can also convert your newsletter to HTML pages if you prefer to load it on your website in that format.
