Every time you walk, we donate to your local animal organization.

Don't just take your dog for a walk...
Take your Walk for a Dog!

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.

Every Walk for a Dog counts, whether it's a walk around the block or a three mile hike. Magnify your impact  by sharing the app with your friends and family. Consider making a personal gift to the shelter or rescue you are walking for—right through the app. The more people actively walking with the app, the greater the benefit to your selected animal organization!

PeaceJam Hero Award Winner!

We are honored that PeaceJam Foundation's "One Billion Acts of Peace" campaign officially named WoofTrax to be a 2015 Hero Award recipient for "Best Business Act." The campaign is spearheaded by 13 Nobel Peace Prize Laureates including Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the 14th Dalai Lama. On June 14th, 2015, in Monte Carlo, WoofTrax was presented the award by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Adolfo Pérez Esquivel of Argentina.

"Our judges recognized WoofTrax as a true agent of change in helping to solve some of the biggest global issues around the world," said Dawn Engle, executive director of the Hero Award and co-founder of PeaceJam. In honor of this award, we encourage that when you rescue an animal, you enter that act of peace on PeaceJam's "One Billion Acts of Peace" website.

What people are saying about Walk for a Dog

"I have been using your app for a year and it worked great until recently. I emailed tech support and was told that my phone was too old to get the updated version of the app, so this weekend I went out and bought an iPhone 6s Plus because I love your app so much and I couldn't stand walking my dog without it. Love you guys and your app!” —Terry, via Instagram

“We love using your app, and the walk gives us two benefits: improved health for us and our dogs and the charitable donation. Very neat." -Richard – New York

“Have you heard about Walk for a Dog? Developed to encourage keeping pets (and their people) healthy with regular walks, this app had the added benefit of helping animal shelters and rescues all across the U.S. Don’t delay! Download, set up your pooches, and get walkin’!” -Volunteers of the Rancho Cucamonga Animal Care and Adoption Center – California

“I downloaded the Walk for a Dog app and used it today for the first time. Great to know that just by doing what I do every day, walking my dog, I can help the dogs at the Monmouth County SPCA. It’s also good to know how much I am walking – close to my first mile!” -Lynne – New Jersey
