LFACC Partners With Finding Rover
The Lexington Humane Society (LHS) and Lexington-Fayette Animal Care & Control (LFACC) now use facial recognition technology to help identify and reunite lost dogs with their worried owners.
Every dog that enters LHS or LFACC will be registered on the free Finding Rover app, which allows users to search for missing dogs via a smartphone or computer. When a dog leaves LHS or LFACC (through adoption or a reunion), the pet owner has the option to continue protection through Finding Rover by completing a free email registration. If that dog ever gets lost in the future, his or her record will then already be in the system and will be ready to assist in making the reunion.
While LHS and LFACC are doing their part to protect dogs in the community, anyone can register an owned dog from home using the app. Registration is simple and free! And once a dog is registered, he or she is protected for life.
In addition, Finding Rover not only helps to reunite lost dogs, but provides a search feature to those interested in adopting a homeless dog.
“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.
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.
Finding Rover is currently available at findingrover.com and available on iOS devices and Android devices FREE.
