POST ON FACEBOOK

If you don’t use Facebook, ask a friend to help. Post on the following pages:

● Bisbee Community

● Bisbee People

● Cochise County Pet Connections

● Friends of Bisbee Animal Shelter

Include a clear photo of your dog, your dog’s name, size/breed, where and when your dog was

last seen, and your contact information including phone number.

MAKE FLYERS

Make a simple flyer with your dog’s photo, size/breed, name, where and when your dog was

lost, and your phone number. Include a bold heading: LOST DOG! ​Offer a reward if you can.

Canvas the area, calling your dog, and hang flyers on telephone poles and bulletin boards. Talk

to neighbors, mail carriers, look in yards to see if your dog has gotten into a fenced area and is

trapped. If your dog knows the sound of a treat box being shaken, or a squeaky toy, bring one

with you and make noise as you call the dog.

Even if your dog is missing from another area of town, be sure to hang flyers at the bulletin

board in front of the Post Office on Main Street in Old Bisbee.

VISIT SHELTERS

Bring them flyers with your dog’s photos, and just check to be sure your dog isn’t there.

DON’T LOSE HOPE!​ ​Dogs are sometimes found after days, weeks, even months
