Tagging Cars for Lost Pets
Lost Dogs Illinois comes up with a creative way to get the word out

When a dog is lost, there are only so many places where you can post fliers to get the word out. That conundrum is exactly what makes Lost Dogs Illinois' latest idea particularly brilliant. Some of the organization's members have been "tagging" their cars by using paint pens to write lost pet information on the windows, similar to what students do to celebrate graduation or homecoming events.

It's the perfect way to reach a wide audience to help get a lot dog home.  The paint pens can be purchased at most big box stores, like Walmart, or craft stores.

Instead of car tagging, you can also post a flier on the inside of the back windows or affix a sign to the car itself using tape or magnets. Whichever method you choose, be sure to check with your local police department because writing on car windows or hanging signs is illegal in some areas.

Do you have any creative ideas for getting the word out about lost pets?
