Talk to everyone
Talk to your neighbors, asking them to keep watch, check backyards, houses under construction, anywhere an animal could hide. Talk to local businesses, especially those that get high traffic.
Create flyers and post widely. Include:
- Photo of pet
- Last seen location
- Contact email
- Contact phone number
- Important personality information (skittish, friendly, etc)
Post around the neighborhood (especially high traffic areas and by subway and bus stops) and beyond, with some many blocks away.
Check websites that list lost pets:
Post on FIDO:
- Visit the Lost Pets section here
- If it's a dog that is lost, the "doggers" are super well-integrated, so if they get the information and send out a notice, it is likely that someone will recognize the dog by the description and help track down the owner!
Call and post at local vet offices
Post and check Facebook groups
Post on Park Slope Parents (if you’re a member) or ask someone who is to post for you.

Best of luck finding your pet or finding an owner of a pet you found. If you do find your furry friend, please microchip them in case it happens again.
