Posted: November 2, 2010, 12:30 p.m., EDT hosted its first live adoption event in late July. The event, which was held in conjunction with Kent Animal Shelter of Calverton, N.Y., resulted in the adoption of 15 pets, according to organizers.

During the event, prospective pet owners could log onto and view live video of animals available for adoption at the no-kill Kent Animal Shelter. A total of 40 pets were featured for the event.

“Over 700 animals per year are placed in new homes from the Kent Animal Shelter,” said Pamela Green, the shelter’s director. “We are always looking for new ways to expand that number given our location and our facilities, so it makes sense to offer people (who are) looking to adopt a pet more than just a photo.”

The concept for is similar to the popular webcam shuffle site, which randomly tosses users into live video chats with other users. creator Michael Ayalon, CEO of Petweb, said he hopes the website will help improve U.S. pet adoption rates.

“I know how much shelters in this country struggle to find homes for their animals, and I felt that today’s opportunity of real-time Internet provided the perfect place for pet lovers all over the country to see what’s available. <HOME>
