Shelters and Rescue Organizations

We want to use Chord to get more pets adopted and retained and have fewer lost pet and abandoned pets that require the services of shelters and rescues. As part of our Kickstarter campaign we are offering Chord backers the opportunity to direct their reward of a Chord collar to shelters and rescue organizations. more...

STEM Education

We believe the children are our future and we are big proponents of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education. Inspired by the activity kits that we have used with our children from the local library, we are creating STEM activity kits that provide hands on activities using Chord, encourage literacy, and introduce animal welfare concepts. more...

Developers and Designers

We are fully committed to an open source approach for our Chord product. We are concurrently developing the AndRover open source animal wearables project. This allows others to freely use open source AndRover software to create their own products and apps that not only compliment but also compete with our products. This approach will yield a marketplace with the best products and lower prices for consumers, in the shortest amount of time. more...

Older People and Older Pets

Many who have cared for a pet in its golden years know about the difficulty communicating when a pet’s hearing and vision start to go. Chord includes haptic (vibration) and auditory (sound) feedback, which provide huge potential for improved two-way communication with our pets well into old age, as their senses deteriorate. On the flipside, Chord provides the potential to make companion pets more feasible for older pet owners and to provide assistance to older pet owners and the loved ones that watch over them. Chord enables older people and older pets to live long, enjoyable, and mutually beneficial lives together. more...
