PASADENA, Calif., Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Pintofeed Inc., the creator of Pintofeed, has introduced the future of intelligent pet care with its autonomous pet feeder now available on the crowdfunding site, Indiegogo.com.  The Pintofeed is available for pre-order worldwide, with shipments starting June 2013.

According to Pintofeed Co-Founder and President Carlos Herrera, Pintofeed is looking to raise funds to produce the first batch of product manufacturing through Indiegogo's crowdfunding capabilities.  A portion of funds raised will benefit TheAnimalRescueSite.com and GreaterGood.org, organizations that provide food and care for rescued animals living in shelters and sanctuaries. 

The Pintofeed is the first autonomous pet feeder that offers mobility and remote access for scheduled feedings as well as notifications via SMS and social networks all packaged neatly into an elegant hardware device specifically designed to enhance the look and feel of any home. Additionally, the Pintofeed employs a number of sensors in order to help populate behavioral data and utilizes artificial intelligence techniques to help accurately predict and even adjust pets eating behaviors to enable the healthiest feeding regimen as possible. 

"An estimated 54 percent of dogs and cats in the United States are overweight or obese directly due to overeating," said Herrera.  "One of the main reasons this disturbing trend continues is because the bulk of today's pet owners cannot consistently monitor their pets eating habits.  Pintofeed, with its intelligent programming and remote access capabilities, is a solution that not only improves feeding habits but also fits into pet owner's lifestyles."   

As the world's first intelligent pet feeder, Pintofeed will help pet owners learn and understand exactly what their pets need to maintain a healthy and social lifestyle. The Pintofeed was devised to help ensure pets stay on a healthy diet, while bringing owners the convenience of a true autonomous feeding solution. Since the Pintofeed is WiFi enabled, one can check its status and even control it from any web-enabled devices such as traditional cellphones, smartphones, tablets and laptops. Feeding alerts and reminders can be configured to publish to Facebook, Twitter and SMS for ultimate reassurance. The Pintofeed is easy to set up, exquisitely designed and can be placed anywhere in the home.

During its launch period, prices for Pintofeed will start at $99. Pintofeed is available in blue and a second color option that will be voted on by backers of the project. When it hits stores next year, Pintofeed will retail for $149.

The Animal Rescue Site provides food and care for rescued animals living in shelters and sanctuaries. Funding from the Animal Rescue Site is distributed by the independent 501c3 GreaterGood.org.
