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.

New tech in New Mexico to help pets

New tech in New Mexico to help pets

The Humane Society of Lincoln County in Ruidoso, New Mexico is now integrated with Finding Rover!

Humane Society of Lincoln County 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 Humane Society of Lincoln County 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 Humane Society of Lincoln County, 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.

Reunion Story - Tech to the rescue

Reunion Story - Tech to the rescue

On the evening of September 16th, a Good Samaritan found a dog running loose at Interstate 805 and Palm Avenue in San Diego.  The person was able to catch the dog, and brought him to her home; where she called San Diego County Department of Animal Services to pick up the dog. 

An animal control officer picked up the dog (that did not have a license or microchip) the next morning, and transported the dog to the animal care facility on Gaines Street.

On Thursday, September 24th, the owner, Juan, visited the animal care facility in Bonita, but was unable to locate his dog.  A staff member gave him a Finding Rover card, and he went home and downloaded the app. 

Thanks to the app, he was able to find his dog within five minutes!  Juan and “Chivo” were reunited yesterday at our facility on Gaines Street! Without Finding Rover, Juan may not have checked the Gaines Street location. Thanks to this tech integration, Juan and Chivo are reunited!

Please share Finding Rover with your friends and neighbors. The more people using Finding Rover, the more dogs like Chivo can be reunited with their owners.

Reunion Story - Nationwide Connection

Reunion Story - Nationwide Connection

This reunion goes to show the power of technology can help pets and people coast to coast. 

When Lil Debbie went missing in the Bay Area of California, her owner didn't know what to do. In a state of panic, the owner called her daughter in Georgia for help. The daughter remotely joined the search by calling her mom's local shelter, Humane Society of the North Bay (HSNB). 

HSNB advised her to download Finding Rover and check the photos, and she did. The very next morning, the daughter called back with great news; she had identified her mother's dog via the photo on Finding Rover!

Lil Debbie, seen here with her aunt, was gladly returned home thanks to the power of technology and family love! 

With a search radius of 2,000 miles, Finding Rover's facial recognition technology has reunited over 2,000 dogs with their families in the past year. Please register your dogs on Finding Rover, and if you ever see a stray pet, please report him/her on Finding Rover. Together, we can help every dog find a way home.
