What People are Saying

“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’!”

“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

 

“This is amazing. To think I have always run with my dogs and now someone will actually help out a local rescue while we get healthy. This is awesome!”

“I really appreciate the automatic shut off feature if you start going too fast. I often walk my dog and then hop in the car with her to run a quick errand and forget to turn off the app. I love that it saves the walk, but stops tracking when the speed shows we aren’t on foot anymore.”

"I've been using this app now for a couple of months. It's so easy to use and since I'm walking my Great Pyrenees, Bronwyn, anyway why not have some charity benefit from it! I walk for the Animal Welfare Association of South Jersey."

“I have four dogs and walk them about two-three times per week. This app has re-energized me! I’m so excited to get home and pick a dog and get going!”

“Being involved in animal rescue work is rewarding yet also very challenging. Those involved in animal rescue work are often exhausted and struggle financially to keep their facility up and running. The WoofTrax program is such a bonus for any rescue group since it involves little effort on the part of the rescue personnel. Having others do the walking to raise funds for the animals is a HUGE bonus and attraction to animal non-profits.  If you have ever wondered why so many groups are calling or emailing you hoping to be welcomed into your program, this is exactly the reason. Thanks for creating such a super fundraiser idea!”

Jenny – Michigan

 

“My name is Jade and I am an outreach coordinator with Last Hope K9 Rescue. I would love to ask that Last Hope K9 Rescue be added to your list of shelters! We’ve had lots of people ask us before we had even heard of the app, and let me tell you, they’re crazy about it! We can’t wait to start using it for our own pups.”

Jade – Massachusetts

 

“Yippee! We just received our first check from Wooftrax. 12 supporters walked 109 times for a total of 138.7 miles. Thanks so much!”

“About this app that I referenced, Walk for a Dog. It’s pretty nifty, and for not costing the consumer anything while donating to your shelter, it’s a no brainer.”

“Just walked 3.2 miles in memory of our Oscar and to help other doggies. Love this and what you do!!”

Stephanie  California

 

“You can’t imagine how happy I am to walk my dogs, enjoy the fresh air, and log miles for a donation to the animal shelter I choose. I love walking with my dogs but now I have the additional incentive to help a shelter. I selected the Second Chance Center for Animals in Flagstaff where our border collie/heeler mix, Gavin, adopted us. Of course he is one of my four legged partners on the walks with his chocolate Lab brother.”

Patricia – Arizona

 

“I recently discovered just about the coolest app for someone like me! It’s called Walk for a Dog, by WoofTrax. For every mile, they will donate to the shelter of your choice. It automatically finds the one closest to your location, but you can always pick somewhere else.”

“I absolutely love the app Walk for a Dog. I walk my dog normally every morning and every night, but now it motivates me to go farther and faster. Thanks!!”

“Seriously. You don’t have this app? I hiked for #AmadorCountyAnimalControlShelter via #WalkForADog.”

“I have four dogs that I have been walking every day for Fayetteville Animal Services. My husband and cousin found Sugar in 2011 on the side of the road. She was almost dead. My husband nursed her back to health, taking her to work every day for three months. She is extremely intelligent. I could never get Sugar to walk on a leash. She considers herself a person and seems to find the leash demeaning. 

When I found the WoofTrax app, Walk for a Dog, I almost didn’t take Sugar for a walk. I wanted to do as much as I could for charity though. After I had walked my other three dogs, I sat down with Sugar and told her we were walking to help homeless dogs find homes like she had done. I figured she might only make it to the end of the driveway, but that was better than nothing.

She walked almost a mile that first day and has walked a mile every day since. She’s now the easiest to walk. The neighbors all comment on how well she walks on a leash. I can’t say for sure if Sugar thinks walking for charity is important or if she thinks it is important to her Mama. But, she has been waking me up demanding her walk, that’s a total transformation.

My personal belief, based on what I know about Sugar, is that she is enjoying making a difference. She’s a very compassionate, loving, sensitive dog. My other dogs bark when other dogs bark at us on our walks. Sugar cries. She can’t stand for anyone or anything to be upset. In my heart I know that Sugar understands why we walk. Thank you for allowing us to help other dogs like Sugar.”

Thank you Donna for sharing Sugar’s story. Sometimes it can be hard to remember how powerful something as small as taking a walk with your dog can be.
