There is a map showing the location and number of city placed bait boxes. Check it and see if there are any around that area.

Sorry to hear about your dog passing away. I do have a question though. If you didn't have any rat poison in YOUR yard and you don't let your dog go in your neighbors yards or run loose/off-leash, how can your dog come in contact with any poison? In my neighborhood there are cats running loose constantly and it's very difficult to keep them out of a yard. But all the dogs are on a leash when out of their own yard. So if I have a bait box in the bushes near my front porch, how does a leashed dog get to it?

The dog does not have to come in contact with the bait box or the poison. If the rat eats the poison it becomes a ticking time bomb. If a dog eats that rat's droppings or the rat itself, the dog can become sick. The same holds true for any other animal or bird.
