I’m not sure how we’ve never heard about it before, but Molly and I just discovered an awesome app called WoofTrax! It’s a fun and easy way to help dogs in need, so of course, we had to try it. After only a few walks, we discovered that it’s an app that all dog lovers should try.
What is it?
When you download WoofTrax, you can help dogs in need simply by walking your own dog. Whenever you go for walks, you just have to click ‘Start Walking’ on your app, and it will track your distance. The more you walk, the more money will be donated to shelters and rescues.
The app automatically selects the organization nearest to you, but you can choose the shelter or rescue of your choice too. Currently, Molly and I are walking for the rescue I was adopted from: JR’s Pups-N-Stuff.
Every walk can make a difference, even if it’s just a short walk around the block. The more people using the app, the more money that can be donated to rescue dogs!
How Do Donations Work?
The amount that gets donated to your selected rescue varies. The funds during each donation period are divided among shelters and rescues based on the people who are actively walking for that organization.
Donations are funded through advertisements and sponsorships. So, the more you use the app, the more donations will be available. It’s such a simple way to help make a difference.
If you go for regular walks anyway, I would highly recommend that you use this app. You can continue your daily routine with the added bonus of making a difference. There are so many rescue dogs out there that need help, so anything we can do to help could save a dog’s life!
