Say hello to the last litter box you will ever buy. The Litter-Robot Open Air is an automatic self-cleaning litter box. The self-adjusting weight sensor detects when your cat is inside and when it’s time to clean up.
Once your cat exits, a timer counts down, allowing litter to clump before a cleaning cycle begins. As the globe rotates, the patented sifting system collects waste and drops it into a drawer, leaving a clean bed of litter every time. Empty the waste drawer when indicated and add litter as needed—it’s that simple!
The pet industry is evolving, as owners wish to know more about their pets. Pet technology enables owners to increase the bond with their furry friends, giving them greater control and insight into their health and wellbeing. What’s more, the information can be accessed at any time, from anywhere.
Our mission is to develop products which empower and educate owners to provide a higher level of care for their pets.

Automatic Play: The Bolt automatically turns the laser off after 15 minutes to prevent your cat from being over-stimulated and keep the game exciting
Entertaining to Cats: The exciting laser moves randomly across floors and walls which appeals to the natural hunting instinct of cats; use the mirror adjust button to control where the laser points

Help Save Pets was originally founded as the Humane Society of Plainfield in 2000. Since then we have placed over 14,000 animals into loving homes. Each one of these animals was given shelter, food, medical aid and vaccinations and time to find the right home. Our doctors mended mutilated limbs and cured many illnesses so that these animals could get a second chance at good lives. We have grown and now operate out of 6 locations, not all of them in Plainfield. In 2008, we changed our name from the Humane Society of Plainfield to Help Save Pets, still HSP.
Dr. Tony Kremer owns 8 veterinary hospitals in the Chicagoland area and two in Ohio. He is the founder of Help Save Pets, an animal shelter which has saved more than 14,000 pets since 2000.
