Kitty Cam: Play With Cats and Kittens Online
Kitty Cam has been discontinued for the time being – see below:
Notice: the kitty cam live video feed and interactive toys were provided by a company called iPetCompanion. OHS received notice in April that iPetCompanion will be shutting down. This means the OHS live kitty cam will be unavailable until further notice. Below, please find the notice OHS received from iPetCompanion regarding their closure.
Potential Sponsors: If your company is able to sponsor or even host (for free or to donate a portion of costs) a live video feed for the shelter, please feel free to contact OHS:

Notice: iPetCompanion will be shutting down
When we started iPetCompanion over six years ago we had a vision that would allow people to interact on the web with things they loved, and our technology made that possible in the world of animal welfare. Since the first iPetCompanion site went live in 2010 we’ve had over 12 million people across 226 countries and territories log-on and interact with animals in the participating shelters’ sanctuaries. Facilities staff have reported back increases of adoptions as much as 60%, increases in donations as much as 200%, and the technology has even been used in hospitals allowing children with severe illnesses to play with animals from their bedside.
In June of 2016 the ad network who manages ad spots on iPetCompanion is no longer providing that service and we have not been able to find a suitable replacement with a sufficient CPM payout to cover the server and bandwidth costs for the users/viewers of iPetCompanion. We have weighed several possible strategies and unfortunately, the only remaining option is to shut it down. At the end of April the URL for iPetCompanion will become inactive.
We hope the philanthropic spirit in animal welfare continues to grow and we are thankful we were able to be a small part of it. We are proud of what we built and hope you enjoyed using iPetCompanion over the years, and over the web. Please continue to spread the mission of generosity, gratitude, and appreciation.
