Some of your kids may have gotten more than just candy while out Trick-Or-Treating Tuesday night.

Nearly 30 men and women around the valley handed out candy with pictures of missing dogs taped to the treat.

The mini flier includes a picture of the dog, with his or her name, the location he or she was last seen, and the owner's phone number.

"If there's any chance that one of these babies can get home through this, I will do it every year, I won't stop," said Amy Clatterbuck.

Clatterbuck thought to do this a couple years ago. She originally showcased just four dogs on the Halloween candy. Three of those dogs were eventually found.

This year, Clatterback and a couple dozen others featured around a dozen dogs.

"We never give up and that's a huge thing I want all our owners to know, is you have a huge community that is constantly looking for your animals," she said. "We are posting on Facebook. Social media is huge. I'm still putting these fliers up for them."
