Contacting the media
The large audience of print, television and radio media can make finding your dog much easier. Ask for radio, television and newspaper announcements to inform listeners and readers of the loss of your pet. Include a full description of the dog and a clear photo for easy identification.
You should also use social networks in your search. Post regular pleas for help with an accurate description and pictures of your dog. Identify your friends who have a large community of followers in New York to reach the maximum number of people.
Ask neighbours and passers-by in the street
A local search is an excellent way to find your lost dog, especially if you think it has wandered into the area. Ask neighbours and passers-by with a description of the animal. Make up leaflets with a description and pictures of your dog, and your contact details so that people who want to help can contact you.
Above all, keep calm so that you are not targeted by malicious people who are looking for vulnerable people.
