You can now play with our shelter cats over the internet for free.
Humane Society of Dallas County/Dog & Kitty City has partnered with KONG of Golden CO, the makers of that classic red rubber dog toy.
Kong selected six shelters throughout the U.S. and they have installed robotic toys and cameras in the shelter so people can control the toys over the internet and watch the cats play. The charitable campaign is designed to raise awareness about shelter cats and hopefully boost cat adoptions.
The campaign, called "Pets Need to Play," utilizes Kong iPetCompanion, a new technology that allows people to play with the shelter cats remotely. You can access the virtual play system and remotely control robotic toys for the cats to play with and can view the action via streaming webcams.
The iPetCompanion toys will be accessed through our website or through ipetcompanion.com. The program is scheduled to go live on July 1st.
Kong is also donating its classic Kong toys for the dogs.
