Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 4, 2010
Adopt-a-Pet.com, in partnership with Sparebytes, is proud to present the newly updated Pet Playpen iPhone game. Pet Playpen is an innovative virtual pet application that allows you to play, feed, groom and interact with several different pets including cats and dogs.
Sparebytes has partnered with Adopt-a-Pet.com, North America's largest non-profit homeless pet adoption website, to support them in their mission of helping to find a happy home for every homeless pet. Adopt-a-Pet.com, which displays 155,000 pets for adoption at approximately 9,500 animal shelters across North America, is sponsored by Purina and Bayer Animal Health.
Pet Playpen is a fun and interactive way for children of all ages to experience learning how to properly care for pets. “Every pet in the game you care for has needs such as hunger, hygiene, and happiness that need to be fulfilled, just like a real pet. For example, you can play Frisbee with your dog to increase his happiness or brush your cat to keep her well-groomed,” stated Arthur Ham, Sparebytes co-founder. Sparebytes is independent game studio based in California focused on creating interactive and entertaining iPhone applications.
“Pet Playpen is a fun way for kids to learn the basic responsibilities of caring for a pet in a simply fun and interactive game. We couldn’t agree more that all pets need and deserve such love. We are thrilled that Pet Playpen will help promote pet adoption, and we hope the app is wildly popular so that more people know about our free service and more great pets get into loving homes," says Adopt-a-Pet.com President and co-founder, David Meyer.
The Pet Playpen iPhone app can be downloaded from the Apple iTunes App Store (http://itunes.apple.com/app/pet-playpen/id309300697?mt=8). Says Ham, “With Pet Playpen’ large audience of families, kids, and pet lovers, we hope to effectively spread Adopt-a-Pet.com’s message of encouraging existing and potential pet owners to adopt homeless pets."
Adopt-a-Pet.com (formerly 1-800-Save-A-Pet.com) is North America's largest non-profit pet adoption website, helping over 9,500 animal shelters, humane societies, SPCAs, pet rescue groups, and pet adoption agencies display over 160,000 pets needing homes.
