WCRAS Using Facial Recognition Technology for Lost Pets

Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter joins the ranks of shelters in using facial recognition technology to identify lost dogs and cats. This shelter now offers their community an additional tool to help lost and adoptable dogs and cats find their forever home. 

Now every dog and cat that enters the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter’s system becomes registered on Finding Rover. Users of Finding Rover can search the shelter and surrounding areas right from their smartphone or computer in efforts to find their missing pet, a neighbor’s missing pet, the family of a found pet or search for adoptable pets. 

Every dog and cat that leaves Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter, through a reunion or an adoption, can remain protected on Finding Rover when the pet-parent registers on Finding Rover with the same email address that the shelter has on file. If that dog or cat ever gets lost, their record will already be in the system, and identifying that pet will be a snap.

Registration of your pet is FREE and as simple as 1, 2, 3!  Just go to www.FindingRover.com and:

1.    Upload your pet’s photo
2.    Enter a few details about your pet
3.    Enter your name, email address and zip code

That’s it!  Once your pets are registered, they’re protected for life. 

“Dogs and cats are beloved family members, and if he or she goes missing, it can be devastating to everyone involved. We want to do everything we can to safeguard our pets from being lost forever. Registering on Finding Rover is another step all pet-parents should take to further protect their furry family members.” — John Polimeno, CEO and founder of Finding Rover.
