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.

Animal Allies Humane Society in Minnesota has integrated with facial recognition technology to identify lost pets in Duluth, MN.

With the Finding Rover integration, Animal Allies 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).

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

First two Nevada Shelters implement facial recognition technology

First two Nevada Shelters implement facial recognition technology

Washoe County Regional Animal Services and Nevada Humane Society are the first two shelters in Nevada to go high-tech!

Washoe County Regional Animal Services, Nevada Humane Society and Finding Rover have officially integrated facial recognition technology to identify lost pets. An additional tool is now available to help Washoe County residents find their lost pets through the Finding Rover mobile app and website. The free app uses a snapshot to match the face of a lost dog with those that have been found or admitted to the Washoe County Regional Animal Shelter and allows Finding Rover users the ability to search the shelter right from their smartphone or computer.

Reuniting people with their lost pets is a very important aspect of what we do at Washoe County Regional Animal Services. Partnering with Finding Rover on this innovative technology will enhance the safety net provided to the pets in our community.
— Shyanne Schull, Washoe County Regional Animal Services Director.

Nevada Humane Society will assist new pet owners by registering the newly adopted pet on Finding Rover and utilize the resource to return lost pets to their homes whenever possible, according to NHS CEO Kevin Ryan.

Finding Rover is yet another arrow in our quiver, another tool to ensure we can reunite families when pets become lost or separated. We are always in search for the latest and greatest and Finding Rover is an example of that dedication to evolution.
— Kevin Ryan, Nevada Humane Society CEO
