AHS Adopts Facial Recognition Technology for Pets

Asheville Humane Society Partners with Finding Rover to Identify Lost Pets in Buncombe County 

Asheville, NC - Asheville Humane Society joins the ranks of shelters in using facial recognition technology to identify lost dogs and cats. They now offer 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 Buncombe County Animal Shelter 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 Asheville Humane Society 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.

When a community comes together on Finding Rover, more dogs and cats can be reunited with their people.

Finding Rover also features dogs and cats who are available for adoption! Find your next family member with Finding Rover!

You can view Asheville Humane Society’s found and adoptable pets with just a click on the Finding Rover Facebook Widget and on the Website Widget!

Register for free on Finding Rover today and help spread the word! The more people that are registered on Finding Rover, the more we can all help reunite lost dogs and cats with their families and place adoptable pets in new homes. In doing this, we can all do our part to save more lives!
