Facial Recognition Helps Find Lost Pets
The Toledo Humane Society recently joined forces with animal welfare groups across the country, including Petco Love, formerly known as the Petco Foundation, a national nonprofit organization working to lead and inspire change for animals, to help reunite lost pets with their families should they ever go missing.
According to industry statistics, one in every three pets will at some point go missing.
Petco Love Lost is a new, searchable national database that uses patented facial recognition technology to make finding lost pets quicker and easier. This simple-to-use tool will be easily accessible to participating animal organizations nationwide, as well as any pet parent or person who finds a lost pet. Uploaded photos of a missing dog or cat are immediately scanned to determine whether the lost pet is at a participating shelter or with a neighbor in the community.
