Sound awesome? It’s not – it’s pawesome!
Walk For A Dog App
The App, a uniquely dog-powered fundraiser, is consistently ranked in the top 1% of all health and fitness apps in both Android and Apple app stores. It is easy to use and super fun! Walk For A Dog has logged 3,000,000 walks (and counting), benefitting 6,000 shelters, in all 50 States! You too can support this innovative fundraising program by downloading the App and sharing this post with your dog-loving friends!
How Does The Walk For A Dog App Work?
Easy peasy! After you download and set up the app on your smartphone, take your phone with you when you walk your dog(s). Simply press the Start Walking button and the app will keep track of your walk. When you are done with your walk, press Stop Walking. After the green heart appears next to your walk on the History screen, it is successfully logged for your selected organization.
Funds from each donation period are divided among shelters and rescues based on the number of people who are actively walking for each organization as seen on the Impact tab of the app. The more active walkers per donation period, the more (and more often!) that organization receives donations. You can even walk a virtual dog, if you don’t have one! Read more about how Walk For A Dog works.
We want to give a big shout out to Poochy Team Member and Animal House Volunteer, Mindy Sherwood! Mindy first brought this App to our attention earlier this year and we’ve been following the organization ever since. We were impressed by the concept, the company’s management and good press we’ve been reading. After recently interviewing Animal House Rescue staff about their experience with WoofTrax, we’re happy to announce Walk For A Dog gets an A+ for all around great App and great follow-through funding!
Here’s a snippet of all the good press Walk For A Dog has been receiving:
“You give your dog a treat every time the two of you go on a walk. Why not give the local animal shelter a treat, too? That’s the premise of Walk for a Dog, a smartphone app that donates money to an animal shelter of your choosing every time you walk your dog.”

Animal House Rescue and Grooming is an amazing resource within our community. They aim to decrease the euthanasia rate of adoptable dogs by giving these well-deserving animals the opportunity and (most importantly) the time to find the right home. Through community outreach and collaboration with overpopulated and underserved shelters, they are making a difference in the lives of dogs and the humans who love them.
