When your pet has gone missing, getting the word out fast is key.
During a radio show interview with Susan Taney, the Director of Lost Dogs Illinois, to be aired on March 5, 2018, on Let's Talk Pets, she told me about Driveway Drops, an idea from a group of women from the Chicagoland area.
Items you will need:
Sandwich bags – get them at the Dollar Store
2. Pebbles or rocks – pond pebbles work great
3. Lost Pet Services, Inc. / Lost and Found Pets 941 will provide postcard size flyers for printing on 8 1/2 x 11 standard size paper. These would be best printed on bright yellow paper but plain white is fine. You can use our Office Depot discount, just ask for it.
4. Enlist friends, neighbors, kids to assemble – add a few pebble/rocks to a sandwich bag with the flyer and seal. (photo courtesy of Lost Dog Illinois)
5. Distribute them quickly through the neighborhood. One person drives and the other throws them out the car window into the driveways. It’s easy to do 500 or more bags in one night.
