Texas Border Business

Edinburg, TX (9/10/2020) – Palm Valley Animal Society (PVAS) has partnered with Finding Rover Inc., a free, online service that identifies Lost and Found cats and dogs in real-time using facial recognition technology of up to 98% accuracy accessible through their website (findingrover.com) and mobile app (Android & Apple). 

Platform users simply upload a picture of their pet and register them for free in Finding Rover’s database. If that cat or dog is ever reported as lost, the system will scan all local animal shelters in a search radius of up to 3,000 miles and display matches that resemble that specific user’s pet. 

The public can view local shelters and rescues in their area that are partnered with Finding Rover to see if their lost dog/cat is in their care. Users will also be able to view adoptable dogs/cats from their local shelters and rescues, using Finding Rover’s platform.

“This tool is a game-changer for helping pets reunite with their families,” said Donna Casamento, Executive Director of PVAS. “Nothing makes us happier than seeing lost pets find their way home.” 

Since January, 843 dogs and cats have been reunited with their families. PVAS offers microchipping to the public for $10, and all dogs and cats are posted on pvastx.org. Finding Rover will be an essential tool for PVAS’s goal of increasing reunifications.

“Finding Rover is accessible and it’s free,” said Casamento. “Unfortunately, not everyone microchips their pet. This is a way for anyone to leverage the internet to find a missing family member. We are ecstatic to be partnering with Finding Rover!”

Finding Rover aims to be an essential part of every lost dog and cat reunion, as well as partnering with all shelters and rescues who have the same goals.

Returning lost or stray pets to their owners is one of many facets of saving sheltered animals and is part of PVAS’s ongoing commitment to providing care to animals and community members in need.
