Reunion Story - Miami-Dade Animal Services

On the night of June 23, 2015, this pet-parent, pictured below, lost her four year old terrier mix while she was at work.

She spent the night frantically looking for her pet around the neighborhood. After there was no sign of her pet this morning, her cousin advised her to download the Finding Rover app.

Within minutes, the app made a match from a pet located at the shelter.
— The Pet Parent

She immediately drove to Animal Services to pick up her dog. In less than 24 hours, this family was reunited and another dog is out of the system. 

A happy reunion indeed! Thank you Miami Dade Animal Services

Animal Humane Society the newest high-tech shelter in the U.S.

Animal Humane Society the newest high-tech shelter in the U.S.

The Animal Humane Society has integrated with facial recognition technology to identify lost pets in Minnesota.

With the Finding Rover integration, The Animal Humane Society now offers their community an additional tool to help lost and adoptable dogs find their forever home through FindingRover.com (mobile app and website).

Now, every dog that enters The Animal Humane Society 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 The Animal Humane Society, 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.

When a community comes together on Finding Rover, more dogs can find home. Please help more pets find home, and spread the word.

 Key benefits of using Finding Rover include: 

                  Simple to register: Registration is easy through Facebook and email – all you need is a picture of your dog and a zip code.

                  Easy to use: Anyone with a mobile phone can take a photo of a lost dog, which will be instantly posted on Finding Rover.

                  Technologically advanced: Finding Rover spent two years with The University of Utah research and development (R&D) department creating its proprietary facial recognition technology. Finding Rover has the only technology that instantly recognizes a dog on the spot.

                  Social: Finding Rover unites dog owners based on common interests and provides a forum for users to read up on the latest dog news, share content and interact.

                  Free! Finding Rover is free to download and use.

Reunion Story - Jake from San Diego

Reunion Story - Jake from San Diego

On June 23rd, a Good Samaritan found this black and white dog running loose in the City of Lemon Grove in Southern California. The wondering pup was brought to the San Diego Department of Animal Services care facility on Gaines Street; one of three county-shelters located in San Diego.

The owner, photographed here, checked the Chula Vista shelter (which handles the City of Lemon Grove); no luck. He then made his way to the Bonita campus, but was unable to locate his dog. The owner didn’t think to look at our Gaines Street facility across town.

Returning home, after being unable to locate his dog, his mom told him to try FINDING ROVER. The owner said he uploaded a photo of Jake, and the dog was immediately identified as being at the Gaines Street campus of San Diego Department of Animal Services

Roxy, Monchichi, and now Jake will all tell you that Finding Rover works!

All three San Diego Department of Animal Services facilities, all four San Diego Humane Society locations, and Rancho Coastal Humane Society all use Finding Rover to idetify dogs in their care. Are your dogs registered with Finding Rover?

Please share Finding Rover with 10 friends, and we can help more dogs find home! Just like Jake, from San Diego.
