What people are saying about Walk for a Dog

“Good Morning! I have been meaning to send a quick email for a while to say thanks to you all. We live in Pittsburgh, PA but are walking for Stonecliffe Animal Rescue. We have a 8.5 year old sheltie named Nicky and a wonderful and bratty 4 year old rescue GSD/pit mix named Joey Lee. The reason we walk for Stonecliffe is my parents have rescued 3 dogs from there and they have brought them so much love and joy. You all have made us thinner and better looking, we are damn grateful! Much peace and happiness to you from the Burgh.” Amanda, via email

"I love using the app, and have actually lost 32 lbs. and 5 inches off my waist by walking my dogs and the shelter/rescue dogs. I promote you every chance I get! Thank you 😊" Kimberly, via Facebook

"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
