COLORADO SPRINGS — There is a new resource for anyone whose pet goes missing.

It's called "PETCO Love Lost."

The way it works is you upload a photo of your missing pet to a database, and the program uses facial recognition to determine if the animal has been taken to a shelter.

"Many people find a pet and they'll keep it in their home for a few days hoping that they'll see a lost poster. Well, this system allows that to automatically be uploaded. So it's really a way of connecting all of the found pets in a community with the lost reports in the community," Duane Adams, President and CEO of HSPPR said.

The Love Lost system works with both dogs and cats.
