Walk for a Dog

While I really want to tell you about our trip to the DP last night, I can’t. I have to tell you about this app that could help you help your local animal shelter!

It’s called Walk for a Dog, and it’s available in both the Apple App Store and the Android Play Store. The best part? It’s completely free!

So this might have you wondering, how does this FREE app help my local animal shelter? WELL! You download the app, fill out information about your pet and which shelter you’d like to support, and then log in every time you take said dog(s) on a walk! Based on the length of time you’re out with your pet, as well as how far you walk, the app will donate money on your behalf to the shelter you chose. Since the app is free, the money comes from ad revenues hosted on the app.

Here’s what it looks like, in case you’re still skeptical:


This is the home screen, where you can do the ‘check in’ before your walk.


This page tracks how far you’ve gone with said pet over a period of time. Don’t judge me for forgetting when I took Sammie to the DP last night…


And this is their ‘About’ page. There’s also a website you can visit for more info at the following address: http://www.wooftrax.com.

So I decided sharing this was more important than telling you about our interesting night at the DP. Don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll hear about it tomorrow!

Any other apps or websites that you use to help a local shelter? What are some other ways you get involved to show them appreciation for all they do to help animals? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below! And once again, Happy National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week!
