The lucky dogs at Animal Humane New Mexico are constantly getting special deliveries—that’s because each kennel is equipped with a mailbox! The eye-catching mailboxes make things clutter-free and help shelter staff easily locate the proper gear specific to each animal’s needs, including harness, leash, paperwork and any other special items.
A great conversation-starter for visitors, the mailboxes also send out positive vibes about the agency that say, this is a fun place where each animal is important and well cared-for.
Now You Try It:
If you’d like to give this idea a try, the agency recommends the following ideas:
If the animal is on a special diet, appropriate treats used for training can be placed in the mailbox
Consider buying mail boxes in bulk from a hardware store
The container you use doesn’t have to be a mailbox. Any durable container that can be attached to the outside of a kennel would work

For another clever way to make use of the front of each animal’s kennel, try drive-by treats.
