Despite what cartoons might show, dogs and cats can be friends. So what if we told you that you could play chess with dogs… to help cats? You might say we were barking mad. Well, watch this video and see for yourself!
Yoko Ono's Doggie Chess
Dogs for Cats! We are delighted to join with Yoko Ono, renowned artist, musician and animal rights activist, in introducing ‘Doggie Chess’, a fun chess game for your iPhone and iPad. What’s more, a percentage of each purchase price goes to Cats Protection! To download to your iPad and iPhone today visit http://tinyurl.com/yokochess

The game is inspired by Yoko's 1966 art piece, “Play It By Trust”, which was a radical reinvention of chess. In it, players face-off with identical sets of white pieces on an all-white board and are tasked with remembering which are their pieces and which are their opponent’s.
We have two sets of lovable 3D doggies, modelled on pets available for adoption from local shelters, “squaring-off” in an exercise of critical thinking, to help cats.
A percentage of each Doggie Chess purchase made in the UK will go towards supporting the important work of Cats Protection. This is a natural extension of Yoko Ono's activist work and a fun and playful way to help make a difference.
What more reason do you need to download Yoko Chess today and buy Doggie Chess, to help cats?
But that's not all - keep your eyes on the horizon because in the coming months Yoko Chess will be adding an all-cat version as well!
