The City of Denton Animal Shelter is using new technology to help stray pets find their way back to their families.
Finding Rover is a free smart phone app that provides instant identification of missing dogs and cats by simply taking a photo. The app matches faces of lost dogs and cats with those found or brought to the shelter and surrounding areas, allowing owners to look for their animals via smartphone or computer. The Finding Rover facial recognition technology shows possible matches within seconds.
Every dog or cat that leaves the animal shelter, through reunion or an adoption, can remain in the Finding Rover system when their pet parent registers on Finding Rover with the same email address that the shelter has on file. If their dog or cat ever gets lost, their record will already be in the system, and identifying their pet is now simpler than ever.
Registration of your pet is free with Finding Rovers website. After registering:
- Upload your pet’s photo
- Enter a few details about your pet
- Enter your name, email address, and zip code
Once your pets are registered, they’re protected for life.
You can view the City of Denton’s found and adoptable pets with just a click on the Animal Services webpage.
