Much like humans, dog faces are unique - even among siblings. Once mapped, dogs are essentially linked to their owners for the rest of their life.
In the unfortunate event that a dog is lost, Finding Rover helps its users find them through a real time connected photo database of shelters, rescues, vets and other users that is continually cycling through the system. Once reported, a lost pet alert is sent to all users within a 5-mile radius and the system flags the pet's image for priority searching.
As soon as an image of the pet is taken by a rescue picking the dog up, a local county shelter, or even an individual taking a photo, the app compares the photo signatures sees the match and notifies the user their dog has been found.
In the event that a pet dog is lost and hasn't been registered, Finding Rover can still help if the owners registers with any scanned image of the dog with both eyes visible.
Individuals finding a stray dog in their neighborhood can also quickly upload its image to Finding Rover with just a couple clicks, identifying its owner immediately and providing them with the exact location of the sighting.
In less than 6-weeks, more than 20,000 dogs have been registered for Finding Rover. More importantly though, as of October 3, 2013, the app has helped reunite 173 pets with their owners.
