Lost pet facial recognition has now come to El Paso Animal Services through a partnership with the innovative Finding Rover mobile application.
Finding Rover is a free, social media-based app that uses facial-recognition technology to help reunite lost pets with their families, while also allowing people to view found animals that are in our care at the Animal Services Shelter.
Additionally, people looking to adopt can also see our animals that are available for adoption on the Finding Rover app.
As part of this effort, dogs that leave the shelter will already be pre-registered in the Finding Rover database. The dog’s record can be automatically transferred to another Finding Rover account once the person who has taken the dog home registers.
Furthermore, Animal Services Officers will also utilize the Finding Rover application in the community, so when a dog gets lost in the future, the Finding Rover app will make it easier in bringing that dog back home.
To mark the start of this partnership, Animal Services will be waiving adoption fees starting on December 15 through December 18 for anyone who downloads the app and shows proof to the Adoption Office.
With the Finding Rover partnership, Animal Services is now able to offer the El Paso community this great tool to help lost and adoptable dogs find their forever home through FindingRover.com (mobile app and website).
