Email email@example.com to have your lost animal information sent to the National K9 Amber Alert Yahoo Group, and the Minnesota Animal Rescue Yahoo Group. (Or join the groups yourself, but you will receive a LOT of email if you join.)
Post flyers of your lost animal, and be sure to include a photo. Be sure to post in businesses, and give a copy to your garbage man and mail man. They cover a lot of territory, and may just see your lost animal.
Search near water sources. Find the nearest pond, river, creek, etc. Your lost animal will need to find water to survive.
Go visit the local impounds. The person at the pound may not describe the animal the same way you do, or may not be familiar with your dogs breed. Minneapolis Animal Control only takes reports of lost pets in person. You cannot call it in.
Contact impounds other than the one for your area. When a person finds an animal, they will often take it to the impound facility they are familiar with. They won't always call to find out where the correct facility is. There was a posting a while back on Craig's list, where the person said they found the dog in Brooklyn Park, and took it to the Woodbury Humane Society!
