Support your favorite animal organization just by walking your dog.
Playing Pokémon Go?
While you’re out hunting Pokémon, use the Walk for a Dog app to help your local shelter and rescue! The app works in the background, tracking your walk while you hunt Pokémon and hatch eggs.
Due to a tremendous increase in the number of new users and walks—thanks to so many Pokémon Go users taking their dogs and the Walk for a Dog app with them on their walks—the Impact tab may take longer than usual to update your walk information. A heart next to your Walk on the history screen of the app indicates that your walk has been successfully registered on our systems. The Impact tab will be updated as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience and support!
If your dog helps you find a Pokémon on your walk, be sure to share that on our Facebook and Instagram pages!
Don't just take your dog for a walk...

What people are saying about Walk for a Dog
"One of a kind app! As a Nonprofit Leadership and Management student, fundraising is imperative for the survival of any nonprofit organization. By creating a practical app that is user friendly fundraising can be done by anyone, and better yet, you get to hangout with your dog while you do it! The design of this app is professional and very easy to maneuver. I love how easy it is to create an account, and get started, raising money right away! The content of this app is very minimal, it tells you who you are walking with, who you are walking for, how long you have been walking, and how far you have walked. This app is very innovative. It is literally one of a kind. The app is very easy to use and navigate. There are not many functions, and everything is clearly labeled and easy to find." —adgilles, iOS App Store review
"I know talk is cheap as I have said every year, "I'm going to start a walk program." Never do. This year when we adopted from our local shelter, in the adoption information was a flyer about WoofTrax.com offering an opportunity to invest in our society shelter plus get healthy. Wow what an incentive! Now I'm walking (with my dogs)!!! And my efforts reward my favorite Humane Society. Thank you WoofTrax - me and my dogs owe you for our healthier lifestyle and support for our shelter!" —Lajuana, via email
"This is amazing. I just want to thank you for doing this! The world needs more companies like you." —Jack, California
“I REALLY LIKE this app! Great design, easy to use, very accurate, and all for a good cause! Thank you so much!” —Dimitri, Massachusetts
"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
