iPet Companion is a unique one of a kind online experience that allows users from anywhere in the world, with an internet connection, thru a web browser or mobile device, to interact in real-time with animals awaiting adoption in shelters located thru ought the US and Canada. This is accomplished by using Reach-in's proprietary real-time video and control technology.
Shelters that sign up to benefit from the iPet Companion experience receive a small unit that contains a camera and three remote controlled RF toys. The system is literally plug and play.
