Pittsylvania Pet Center in Chatham has begun using facial recognition technology to identify lost dogs and cats. The center now offers the community an additional tool to help lost and adoptable dogs and cats find their forever home.

Every dog and cat that is taken into the Pittsylvania Pet Center system is registered on FindingRover.com Users of Finding Rover can search the Pet Center 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 Pittsylvania Pet Center, through a reunion or 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.

To register a pet, visit findingrover.com and upload a photo, a few details about your pet, and the registrants name, email address and zip code. Once a pet is registered, they are 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.

In addition to helping lost pets find home, Finding Rover also features dogs and cats that are available for adoption.
