Walk or drive your neighborhood several times a day. Ask your neighbors and everyone you see if they’ve seen your pet. Hand out photos of your pet and information about how they can contact you.
Post flyers at local stores, community centers, veterinary offices, traffic intersections and in your neighborhood. Consider ads in newspapers with information about your pet’s gender, age, weight, breed, color and special markings.
It’s unfortunate that many people will take advantage of a traumatic situation for financial gain. To keep yourself from becoming a victim, make sure that you can verify that someone has your dog before proceeding. Ask someone to send a photo of your pet and be wary of those who ask for money upfront.
Use social media and other forms of the internet to widen your search for your lost pet, and consider local groups such as Lost Pet Santa Fe and CraigsList.
