Post Flyers in Brookline Print a few hundred Lost Dog Flyers on bright, neon paper. Assemble friends and family to post them everywhere within at least a 1 to 2-mile radius of where your dog went missing.
You must get permission before posting signs. You cannot post them on trees, and it is important to make a firm commitment to take them down as soon as your dog is found.
If bad weather is expected, insert them in clear plastic sleeve protectors available at office supply stores, with the opening facing down. Be sure that the contact number appearing on the flyer can be monitored by someone 24 / 7.
