WoofTrax's mobile app "Walk for a Dog" is a brilliant and easy way to help homeless animals, like those at the HSEP!
"Support your local animal organization simply by walking your dog! Use the app each time you grab for the leash. It’s healthy for you, your dog, and your favorite shelter or rescue.
What is it? Walk for a Dog is a smartphone application that supports your local animal organization every time you walk your dog.
How does it work? After you download the app onto your smartphone, take the phone with you when you walk your dog(s). Simply press the “Start Walking for …” button and the app will keep track of your walk. When your walk is stopped it is credited to your selected shelter or rescue. The more people walking for that organization, the more we can donate, so please spread the word.
How much and how often do we donate? Our donations to animal organizations are funded by sponsorship, advertising, and investors. We send donations to active shelters and rescues about twice per year.
Please help us help your local animal organization by sharing the app with friends and family. Every walk counts, whether its a quick walk around the block or a leisurely three mile hike. The more people actively walking with the app the greater the benefit for your favorite rescue or shelter.
What if I don’t have a dog? Can I still use the app? Absolutely! You can walk for dogs at a shelter or rescue by choosing the “Walk for Cassie” option after enrolling in the app for the first time. Or, create your dream dog as a walking companion by going to the setup tab and adding a dog.
What if I don’t have an iPhone or Android smartphone? While you can’t use Walk for a Dogyourself, you can always walk with a friend who has the app to help support your favorite local shelter or rescue! Next time you upgrade your phone, consider getting a device that is compatible with the Walk for a Dog program. Like our Facebook page and join our mailing list below and we will notify you when we support additional smartphone platforms."
