Stay Fit While Helping Animals in Need With ResQwalk #walk4animals

Sometimes, us humans need a little extra motivation to get up and get moving. I know I do every now and then. It's good for both us and our dogs when we go out on walks, hikes, or adventures. It allows us some exercise, time out of the house and away from the TV/computer, and let's us get a breath of fresh air.


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.

  1. I think it's a great app it's a win for all :o) Maybe it's available for android once too... although I have to admit that this android-thingy tries to kill me ... or it is smarter than me... or both. Have a great saturday!

    1. Lol! I felt the same way when I first got mine. There are still some things on there that make me confused every now and then.

  2. That is a very cool idea. If we ever go back to iPhone we'll have to add that app.

  3. This is cool, I love that someone came up with this idea! I can always use some motivation to get out moving with the dogs. Unfortunately, I have Android too, so will have to wait as well!

  12. Awesome idea, kudos to whoever came up with it in the first place. We use Walk the Dog, by WoofTrax -- it's the one our rescue organization is associated with. Love it -- it's so cool to be promoting donations just while you're walking your dog! Something tangible from the walks, besides the exercise and time spent with your pup :)
