Take your flyer and get it out to every GROOMER in your city. Give
your NEWSPAPER CARRIER a copy and give one to the MAILMAN PRONTO. Ask if you
may leave a stack of your flyers so that each mail carrier and every
newspaper carrier will get a copy or that it be placed on a company bulletin
Get out to the area convenience stores and leave one. Ask if they
will allow you to tape it to the counter at least for a period of two weeks.
Take some of your flyers and put one facing to the
outside in ALL your car windows. Anybody parking next to you or passing by
will surely notice and take a look at it. Perhaps you have friends or family
willing to do this also.
Bulletin boards at Pet stores and vet offices aren't big enough for a flyer
but you can make a smaller version (5x7) and tack it in all the stores and
vet offices too.
Contact the kennel clubs in your area and of course the animal shelter as
soon as they open. At the animal shelter, fill out a lost dog report and
include a copy of your flyer with a photo of the dog. Contact all the
Veterinary Clinics, any rescue people, all-breed clubs, etc., in your area.
Call the radio station and pay if necessary to have it broadcast X number of
times during the course of the week, the month if need be.
Call the newspaper AS SOON AS POSSIBLE and place at least 2 classifieds. One
in the Lost and Found and the other in the "pet" section. do the
same thing in the "Penny Saver" or "Thrifty Nickel."
Contact your Emergency Animal Clinics and your Police. Check periodically
for any accident report involving animals.
When contacting your Veterinary offices, be sure to inform them of your dogs
identification i.e.; microchip, tattoos and any physical identifications.
