“In our increasingly digital society, we felt there was no better way to reach the public and encourage adoption than by connecting these animals directly with people through the interactive iPet Companion virtual play system,”
~ KD Frueh, president of Kong.
"I think it gives people at home or at work on their computer a great way to feel connected with live animals and in this digital age people really yearn for companionship and connection.When I travel I wonder all the time what's happening at home with my cat, is he getting along with the pet sitter, are they having fun? And with a mechanism like this I could actually see my own pet at home in real-time."
~Nancy Taylor, President & CEO, Bideawee

"It's amazing!! It's addictive!! Some of the kittens are so into it that you literally have to tear yourself away from the screen! I believe that all of us in Clinton will look back on this day as the turning point for our abandoned animals. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
~Tammy Olsen, Clinton Humane Society, 8th August 2011
"We still get lots of interest in the iPetCompanion. It’s really popular with everyone and it’s a highlight of our shelter tours. We love it."
~ David Lytle, OHS, 21st July 2011 (10 months after launch)
"Our sponsors and donor's love it. I love it as an engagement tool on our social networks and I know our fans love sharing the robotics to their friends. It helps OHS' image to look as current as possible by presenting our shelter with the newest technology. I think it was summed up best by one of our FaceBook postings: "I think it's a great idea! I love how creative OHS is, and how it's so clear they love their animals"!"
~Barbara Baugnon, Oregon Humane Society
Did You Know? After just a few weeks, OHS with their marketing campaign promoting iPet Companion had the following response:
"The iPetCompanion has been a great benefit for the public to play with the kittens, see their personalities, and then chat about the experience with other animal lovers from all over the world. It’s a healthy enrichment tool for the kittens and you can’t help but smile every time you walk by and see someone playing via the internet with the kittens."
~Christine Wiersema, Development Director, Idaho Humane Society
