The photo opportunity will take place at Spark Social SF, an urban park located in the Mission district. Aerial photography and video coverage of the record attempt will commence at 1PM Pacific Time on July 22nd. Petcube will co-host a number of fun and informational pet-related activities, and demo the Petcube Bites treat camera to the public for the first time. Attendees will have a chance to bond with adoptable puppies at the SF SPCA cuddle lounge, and Fuzzy will host Ask-a-Vet sessions and provide free Wellness exams.

Internet-famous Manny the Frenchie, a rescue himself, will be a co-Master of Ceremonies. Other SF Bay area pet celebrities will make special appearances throughout the daytime event, along with live performance from acclaimed band BEGINNERS. RSVP is required and all ticket sale proceeds from the Eventbrite will support SF SPCA and area rescues.

Since Petcube’s founding, the company has helped shelter and rescue organizations across the country by donating camera devices and resources to help increase adoptions. Through its Petcube for Shelters program, the company has set up public camera sharing capabilities to enable anyone with the free Petcube App to interact and play with adoptable shelter pets.

Petcube Bites, planned for release on July 24th, is the most advanced pet camera on the market with remote monitoring and treating capabilities, 1080p live streaming video, high capacity container, and automatic treat reordering via the Petcube app.

Here are some of San Francisco's most popular Internet pets that are planning to come:
