Donate To Your Favorite Shelter For Free… Just For Walking Your Dog

admin | December 1st, 2016

WoofTrax has come up with an innovative way for you to help your local animal shelter without having to dig deep into your own pockets. They developed an app that will donate money to an animal shelter of your choice every time you walk your dog.

The app is aptly called, Walk for a Dog.

They are able to raise money through sponsors and advertisers so using the app and donating won’t cost you a penny.

The first thing you will need to do is download the app from either the iTunes App Store or the Google Play store.

The app will then automatically find the animal shelter closest to you to donate to. You can choose a different shelter by going to the Setup Tab in the app. Currently there are about 4,000 animal shelters that have already signed up with the program. If you would like to help a shelter or organization that isn’t connected to the app yet, just tell them to sign up here: http://WoofTrax.com/shelters

Once that is all set up, you can now start using the app. Just hit “Start Walking” every time you take your pooch out for a walk and it will keep track of how far you go. The app donates anywhere from 11 cents to 25 cents for every mile that you walk with your dog. Although it seems like very little, it will add up to a whole lot over time.

Trust us, it’s worth it. Especially because you walk your dog every day already, why not help others at the same time?

Please download the app and tell all your dog loving friends. Every little bit counts!
