New Technology Will Let You Play with your Dog or Cat Anywhere!


Petcube Inc., formed by three friends from the Ukraine, is poised to release a very exciting new product aimed specifically at pet parents and their pets. Petcube will help dog and cat lovers play with their pets even when they can’t be in the same room. As reported by forbes.com, “The product – a small aluminum and glass cube – is equipped with a camera, a speaker, wi-fi capability and a laser pointer that can be controlled remotely through the use of a smartphone or tablet app.” The camera and speaker will allow you to see and communicate with your pet from your smartphone, while the laser will allow you to play together.

“I saw the passion in the team,” said Semyon Dukach during an interview about his role in the project. Dukach became an investor after he met with Petcube Inc. CEO Yoroslav Azhnyuk. “I don’t know I can’t describe it—sometimes you just look at a guy and you know they’re going to succeed.”

The idea for Petcube is credited to Alex Neskin. He built the first prototype in his native Kyev, Ukraine when neighbors threatened to call the police over the amount of noise that his dog, Rocky, made when Neskin was out. According to Azhnyuk, the box worked so effectively that all of Neskin’s friends wanted to have one.

The company, which laid groundwork in May of 2013, has moved to San Francisco but maintains an office in Kyev. According to Forbes, they have received funding for Petcube from Semyon Dukach, SOS ventures, Haxlr8r, and a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign that brought in $251,000 over 42 days.

The Petcube will have a price tag of $199; undoubtedly, many pet parents will consider this cost to be minor compared to the issue of pet boredom. Pet boredom not only makes many owners feel guilty about being away but can easily turn into behavioral problems. Cult of Mac reports that Petcube has already been named one of 6 finalists in the SF New Tech and Macworld’s 6 About to Break contest.

The only downside may be that it’s too much fun. Do you think you’ll get any work done at the office with that adorable face looking back through your smartphone? Tell us below.

If you have any questions or concerns, you should always visit or call your veterinarian -- they are your best resource to ensure the health and well-being of your pets.

The 10 Best Smart Pet Feeders in 2021

We love our pets. Often, pets are more like family members. You care for them like you would your own kids. We just adopted a rescue dog two weeks ago and it’s hard to remember a time they weren’t around. It’s so easy to get attached to their infectious personalities.

Sometimes pets even travel with you. But how do you feed them if you are gone all day at work? What if you could check in with them during the day or even talk to them? You can do just that with the use of smart pet feeders. Feeders have been around a while, but new technologies have improved functionality.

Now there are many options with smart pet feeders. Do you need one for multiple pets? What about the ability to watch video footage of your dog? Perhaps your pet is on a strict diet and needs their portions controlled. Pet smart feeders seem capable of almost any task you can think up.

Are you interested in having a direct impact on the lives of street dogs from the comfort of your own home? We have a unique opportunity for you to help street dogs in Kyiv, Ukraine. In Ukraine, thousands of homeless dogs roam the streets. Many are sick or injured, do not have any food to eat, and endure extreme heat in the summer and extreme cold in the winter. Ukraine does not have any organized animal control systems, and adopting rescue animals is a new concept. Homeless dogs are not euthanized by the government, rather they live their lives on the streets where they are in constant danger of being shot or poisoned by those who see the dogs as a nuisance. Other dogs live their lives in outdoor, underfunded shelters where they often suffer and die like those on the streets. In this role you will help us recruit foster volunteers from expat groups and other websites for expats. We will train you, and you will shadow an experienced coordinator until you are comfortable with the process. Duties: Work with Case Managers to post dogs when they are adoption-ready, and to remove ads when dogs are adopted. Coordinate with Case Managers and access descriptions and photos in Google Docs.

Grant Writer

As a 100% donation based and volunteer run organization, we rely on donations to function! Last year alone, we saved nearly 1,300 dogs from the streets of Mexico. Because our dogs are typically street dogs or come from situations of neglect or abuse, they require a lot more vet care than most and it's where the majority of our funds go. Since we rescue outside of the States, that has unfortunately disqualified us from many grants in the past. We are really in need of a couple of Grant Writers who can help us go after grants that we can qualify for as we desperately need the funds! If you are able to help with this position, please head over to our website and fill out a Volunteer Application: https://theanimalpad.org/volunteer/volunteer-application/

Wooftrax is a mobile app (available for both iOS and Android) that enables animal lovers to raise money for animal rescues every time they go for a walk. Supporters simply need to check in to the app when they go for a walk. Each walker's distance is recorded and added to the rescue's weekly sum. Wooftrax calculates your mileage and time, maps your route, and reports your stats for the day, month, and year. Wooftrax donates approximately .11 to .25 per mile!

We also welcome any comments or questions you have. F.A.Q.: Additional Questions: http://www.wooftrax.com/faq  How do donations work? Funds from each donation period are divided among shelters and rescues based on the number of people who are actively walking for each organization as seen on the Impact tab of the app. The more active walkers per donation period, the more (and more often!) that organization receives in donations.  What is an "active walker?" An active walker is anyone who uses the app an average of at least once per week.  Does the app use any data on my phone? The app does not use any data during a walk and only uses a small amount of data at the end of the walk to credit it to your selected organization. If you are on Wi-Fi at the end of your walk, it will not use any data at all.  Is using the GPS on the app using my data plan? GPS as a technology does not use any data, and the Walk for a Dog app works without data. Once a user’s phone is back in range of Wi-Fi or a cell signal, the app (on the next use) will upload the previous walk.  I have a technical question about the app. Who should I contact? First, make sure that you are using the most recent version of the app. Updating to the most recent version will solve most issues. If you are still having trouble, email [email protected] with the make and model of your phone and the email address you used to register the app.  Can I walk on a treadmill, or use a stationary bike? The Walk for a Dog app is designed for walking outdoors and uses GPS to track your walks. It won't show miles if you are walking indoors on a treadmill. FREE VETERINARIAN ADVICE BY TEXT MESSAGE: 1. Use the Wooftrax application at least once per week. 2. Text "Wooftrax" to the number they provide in your welcome email. 3. A website will be texted to you. 4. Go to the website and enter your contact information and questions regarding your pet for the veterinarian to answer. (Example: My 1 year old dog has white discharge coming from his left eye.) 5. A vet will contact you via text message. HOW TO VIEW YOUR STATS (Community Service Hours): 1. Go to History 2.

We are seeking advice on how to persuasively communicate our mission and programs to expand our base of potential funders to support 3 core programs in shark protection called Shark Watch, marine protected areas and expanding our conservation area in SE Asia. We have examples of successful and rejected grants and access to the Foundation data base. Join our ocean team and help us restore ocean health by saving sharks and protecting critical marine habitat. This position is virtual but we can meet face to face in the San Francisco Bay Area at our offices in Berkeley near UC, in Sausalito or in the City once COVID allows. Thanks for you interest!!
