Want to raise money for your favorite shelter or rescue just by doing something you already do? Our friends at Middle Tennessee Boxer Rescue recently hipped us to the Walk for a Dog app by WoofTrax. Download the app for Android or iOS and launch it on your smartphone when you start walking, hiking, or running with (or without) your dog.
You choose the shelter or rescue organization to receive the credit for your walk, and periodically WoofTrax will send money directly to that organization. I’ve just started using the app, and one of our shelter partners Cheatham County Animal Control was not listed. They’ve contacted WoofTrax and hopefully will be in the app’s beneficiary list shortly.
The WoofTrax website says they’ve “raised over $120,000 for our shelter and rescue partners” in the last year. We’ll be checking with our partners to make sure they’re reaping the benefits of us using this app.
We’re urging Tails of the Trail volunteers and leaders to download and use the app, and if you can deal with the ad-supported interface, it’s a very simple way to get a few more bucks to your favorite shelter or rescue operation.
