|Wanna go for a walk, Toby?|
Or would you rather raise money for shelter dogs?
|"Use your smartphone, we'll do both."|
What a good idea! I just found the WoofTrax app. You can get it at the Google Play store or by clicking here.
WoofTrax lets you enter your dog by name and even add a picture. Then just open it and tell it when you walk your dog. The app measures your distance and 3 times a year donates some $ per mile walked to the shelter of your choice. The average donation is $.25/mile. If you walk every day like Toby and I do, that can start to add up fast. The developers say users have logged 39,000 miles in 48 states. Almost $10,000 to shelters around the country.
The only drawback when I used it today is that I don't normally bring my phone on walks. It's going to be a change of habit to remember to bring it along. I'm going to try though, because it's such a great idea for a way to support shelters by doing something good for Toby.
