Losing your cat or dog can be quite frustrating. If you lost your pet, then there are several things that you can do. You can call the shelter, post flyers around your neighborhood or make a post on Facebook. There is now an app that will make it easier for you to find your lost dog.
The name of the app is Finding Rover. Diana Garcia, who is a dog owner and loves he neighbor’s dogs, wished she would have had Finding Rover app. When Diana’s neighbor, Vicki, experienced a medical emergency, Diana came to help. Diana and her husband took care of Vicki’s dogs Jojo and Piper.
Vicki’s husband dropped the kennel when he was carrying it downstairs. Jojo ran when the kennel broke. Vicki, Diana and Diana’s husband were afraid that Jojo was going to freeze to death if they did not find her. It was 12 degrees outside.
The team got in touch with Diana’s daughter, who is named Kerry Underwood. Kerry made a post on Facebook. She stated that it is a fast way to spread the word. Even if you make a post at 4:30 in the morning, you will be able to reach a lot of people.
Jojo is microchipped, which is something that all veterinarians recommend. However, there was one resource that the team did not have, which was Finding Rover. It uses facial recognition to find lost dogs and cats.
Tori Fugate is the communications director for the KC Pet Project. He stated that the app is new and creative. Anyone can download the app, but the KC Pet Project is the first place to use it.
If you lost a pet, then you will need to post a picture of it using the app. The app will then search for animals that look like your pet. You can also find a pet to adopt.
Diana adopted two dogs from the KC Pet Project. She wished she would have had the app when she lost Jojo. Fortunately, Diana found Jojo two days later. Diana and her husband were able to clean up Jojo. She is doing fine.
