Shipping update, your feedback and #EndPuppyMills
almost 2 years ago – Fri, Jul 28, 2017 at 10:08:25 AM

Hi guys,  

We’re back with some good news and an important announcement!

First things first: every order has been shipped! The only exception are backers who didn't answer their shipping survey yet (as we don't have their shipping info) - if this is your case, please make sure you fill your survey by visiting this link and following the instructions: https://findster.backerkit.com/

Second: your feedback! We love to hear from our backers. Sometimes it helps us realize what we need to work on to keep improving Findster Duo every day, while other times it just puts a big smile on our faces and boosts our whole team’s morale! Either way, we really appreciate hearing from you.

We have received some lovely stories, which we’ve been compiling on our Wall of Love on Twitter (soon on our website, too!) so check them out!

 We’d love to add more content from the Findster family - share your pictures/feedback with us and we’ll feature them!

Just send them directly (you can reach us at support@getfindster.com) or post them on your social accounts using the hashtag #FindsterWorld. Nothing makes us happier than seeing our backers enjoy the result of our hard work - after all, you’re the ones who made this possible!

On that note, and to conclude this update - one of our team’s long term goals is to give back to the pet community. To this end, we’ve teamed up with The Puppy Mill Project in the fight against puppy mills (inhumane dog-breeding facilities in which the health of the dogs is disregarded in order to maximize profits), in an attempt to raise awareness about this issue.

The campaign is centered on a video spoof of the "Orange is the New Black" opening credits, featuring dogs as inmates. It starts off as a parody but ends on a serious note, exposing the sad reality of puppy mills and urging the public to act. Here’s the video:

 
Help us spread the message by sharing the video on your social profiles using the #EndPuppyMills hashtag - if you’d like, you can also support The Puppy Mill Project by donating on their website.

If you’d like more info on this issue, we’ve also written a blog post about the initiative with more details. Our blog, Barking Out Loud, is now live and we’ll be updating it constantly, so feel free to check it out.

Let’s fight this horrible practice - help us #EndPuppyMills!

The one you've been waiting for: shipping is coming!

Hello guys, 

Our campaign has ended and we couldn’t be happier! Findster Duo will now be a reality thanks to all 1681 of you. We’re really grateful for the love and support you’ve shown for our project and we honestly can’t thank you enough! 

First things first: are we still on for delivery in December? The short answer is yes, Findster Duo is ready and shipping will start next week! The system is fully functional and works as promised - however, we haven’t had the time to test it as extensively as we’d like. Because of this, it may contain a few bugs here and there that we haven’t caught and squashed yet, which may cause some frustration. 

If you don’t mind this and would like to receive your Findster Duo right away, we can ship your order now and you will receive it before Christmas. Please note that any bugs will be corrected with the release of the next Firmware version, which will happen in January - you’ll just have to update your modules then and they’ll be good to go! 

If you would rather avoid this “beta phase” and would prefer your affair with Findster Duo to be a “love at first sight” deal instead, we can ship your order in January, and your modules will already contain the updated Firmware.

We’ll be sending out a survey today in order to collect your shipping addresses. You’ll also be able to add extra modules to your order, if you wish to do so. So if you’d like to receive your Findster Duo order before Christmas (fully functional, but may contain some bugs) please answer the survey before next Wednesday. If you’d rather receive your order later, you can ignore the survey and we’ll send another in January. It’s up to you! 

In other news, we’ve reached our Stretch Goal ($200,000), so we’re happy to confirm that Findster Duo will include the Green Zones map! 

Also, our project was also featured on First Backer Newsletter and we’d like to invite you to join its growing community of Kickstarter backers - You'll receive fresh Kickstarter amazing early bird offers and awesome freebies delivered right to your inbox. Click here to subscribe! 

Finally, here are some pictures! :)

 

 
This is it for now - see you soon!
