Wouldn't it be awesome if there was another kind of motivation for you to get up and start walking with your dog more often? Well, now there is and it's called ResQwalk.
What is ResQwalk?
ResQwalk is a new mobile app available for download at the app store that is "helping animals one step at a time". I'm a little sad that it's not yet available for Android, since that's what I use but they hope to have that ready to go by this Fall. I'm looking forward to it.
ResQwalk is a way for you to earn money each and every time you go for a walk with your dog. You simply log into the app before walking, choose the participating shelter or rescue organization you wish to walk for, and then start walking! Your steps are counted and your total walking distance will help earn the participating shelter part of the donation pool.
What about cat, bird, reptile, and small pet owners without dogs? No worries! You guys can still walk and earn money for a good cause too. You don't have to actually walk with a dog. It's just a great way to get you all motivated to walk and be active.
Other features of ResQwalk include a News section filled with pet related content as well as a Shop section that features products available for sale at ResQthreads.com. All of which spark a donation to the animal rescue or shelter of the purchaser's choice.
So far, there are over 450 animal rescue organizations signed up to receive donations from the ResQwalk app in the US and Canada. Eventually, the app hopes to support even more organizations on a global scale.
