“Walk for a Dog” App Donates To Animal Shelters Every Time You Walk Your Dog

335,000 miles and counting. That’s how far thousands of people and their dogs in all 50 states have walked to help raise money for animal rescues and shelters at no cost to them thanks to the Walk for a Dog app from WoofTrax.

For those of us who care so deeply about the helpless animals that are sitting in shelters but can’t afford to budget the extra cash to donate, there’s finally an app that easily relieves us of this stress! All you have to do is download the Walk for a Dog app, take your phone with you on the walk, press “start”, and watch as you raise money with every step! The app automatically finds the shelter closest to you, but you can change your choice of shelters as many times as you want. Donations range from 11-25 cents per mile, but the more people that use the app the more WoofTrax can donate!

The animals in shelters are depending on us, and all we have to do to help them is tell our family and friends about this amazing program. The money WoofTrax donates to animal shelters comes from sponsorships, advertising, and investors. As the number of people that use the app increases, the number of investors and advertisements increases which means more money going to the shelters! Let’s do our part to spread the word to all of our friends and our local shelters so they can help promote it as well. The shelters already receiving donations:

If you or your friends are dog lovers but not dog owners, you can still use this app to show support by walking the dogs at your local shelter by choosing the “Walk for Cassie” option or create your virtual dream dog on the app as your walking companion!

We can all make a huge difference by using and promoting this app, and all we have to do is simply take walks with our best friend– free of charge! I can’t imagine going on another walk with Zoey and Jem without using this app and will feel so great knowing we have saved shelter pets by simply adding one extra step to our daily walk routine.

See what people are saying about Walk for a Dog:

“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

Important Points To Consider When Buying A Dog Bed

In different parts of the world, there are different breeds of dogs. Dogs need some level of rest just like human beings. Dog beds are very essential, nevertheless, dogs are thought to be mans closest friend and should receive better care. A normal dog sleeps an average of 14 hours a day thus a comfortable bed offers them good rest.

There are various sizes of dogs; some are small while others are big. An example of a small dog is the Chihuahua and that of the big dog is the Irish wolfhound. All dogs have similar traits but to some extent, they all have special characteristics like human beings. For that reason, there are various factors to consider when selecting a dog bed.

To begin with, you should deliberate on the size of the dog, as mentioned earlier. It will be inappropriate for a dog owner to purchase a big dog cot for a small dog. This will look funny and will take up a larger space in the room. For a puppy, one might want to buy a larger bed that it will grow into. Dog beds for puppies do not require a lot of cushioning because the puppy is still small and has less weight to weigh it down.

When the owner wants a long lasting bed, he should consider that the puppy will grow big. Hence, he should buy a larger bed. The owner can also purchase a less expensive bed for the puppy and replace it with a bigger one when it grows. For long lasting beds, it is wise to select one that is firm in its cushioning since it will be required to hold more weight in the future.

Another factor that you should bear in mind when buying a dog bed is one that comes with a washable cover. Dog beds can start to smell with time. The odor is not pleasing and can be embarrassing because many dog owners place them in prominent view of guests. Having one that has a washable cover solves the problem. You can also match the color of the washable cover with the general color theme of your house.

Age should also be another factor to consider when buying a dog bed because as dogs grow older, they require much care. They tend to have stiff joints just like old aged people. Their bed should be well padded and made of memory foam; they can also have a bed that is heated. This kind of bed is especially good for caring for the minor aches and pains experienced in their joints.

There are those dog beds stuffed with cedar that assist in keeping away fleas. This kind of bed is not always appropriate in all homes such as in homes where a dog has to share the bed with a cat. Cats are allergic to cedar hence it can harm them.

In many case, dog beds are flat and thick padded. They are usually oval, round or rectangular. The most common style for dog beds is the cot that is lifted a few inches from the floor. The materials are mesh or cool fabrics. With all these in mind you can purchase the perfect dog bed to fit your preference and style.
