Ventura County in Southern California using tech to save dogs

Ventura County Animal Services in Southern California now offers their community an additional tool to help lost and adoptable dogs find their forever home through FindingRover.com (mobile app and website) thanks to this integration.

Now, every dog that enters the Ventura County Animal Services system becomes registered on Finding Rover. Users of Finding Rover can search the shelter right from their smartphone or computer for their missing dog, a neighbor’s missing dog, or search for adoptable dogs.

Every dog that leaves Ventura County Animal Services, through a reunion or an adoption, can remain protected on Finding Rover when the pet-parent completes registration with an email. If that dog ever gets lost, his/her record will already be in the system, and identifying that pet will be a snap.

Registration of your pet is simple and free. Once your dogs are registered, they’re protected for life.

“A dog is a beloved family member, and if he or she goes missing, it can be devastating to everyone involved. We want to do everything we can to safeguard our dogs from being lost forever. Registering a dog on Finding Rover is another step all owners should take to further protect their cherished pet.”

— John Polimeno, CEO and founder of Finding Rover.

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (spcaLA) and VCA Animal Hospital’s unveiled a new partnership with Finding Rover that has the ability to help reunite more lost dogs with their family by using CSI techniques usually reserved for humans. Finding Rover’s innovative facial recognition for pets can be used on a smartphone through the app or on the web and is 98 per cent accurate in matching lost and found dog reports.

Registering a dog on Finding Rover is another step all owners should take to further protect their cherished pet. Hopefully this technology will soon become added to other tools pet owners and shelters utilize to identify dogs.

— Madeline Bernstein, spcaLA President.
We are very excited about this new partnership between spcaLA, Finding Rover and VCA that brings the latest technology for the benefit of pets and their families.

Reunion on Front Street

Reunion on Front Street

Thanks to the partnership between Finding Rover and Front Street Animal Shelter - City of Sacramento, another stray dogs is reunited with his owner within 2 hours. 

About 8 weeks ago Finding Rover announced their partnership with the three major shelters in California's capital city of Sacramento. 

On Halloween weekend, a miraculous reunion took place on Front Street. A Good Samaritan brought this stray dog, pictured below, to the Front Street Animal Shelter hoping the owner would look for their dog at this universal hub for animal care. 

Before the dog went through the channels of intake at the shelter, a shelter employee used their personal Finding Rover account to report the dog is Found. After searching around on social media, they believed they found a match! 

Sure enough, a match was made, and the owner was able to pick up their beloved pet within 2 hours of being in the shelter.
