Walk Your Dog

With this simple smartphone app, you can donate to waiting pets just by taking your best friend for a stroll. The app is free to download and to use; you simply start it at the beginning of your walk and stop it when you get home. No dog? No problem! You can “Walk with Cassie,” their representative dog. Periodically, Wooftrax will donate to the shelter for each mile walked by app users. What a great incentive to get outside, enjoy nature, get in shape, make your pup happy, and help homeless pets all on the same walk!  


Are you the creative type? Join other artisans who have decided to donate a portion of their proceeds to waiting Shelter pets.

We would like to say THANK YOU to K. Potter Fine Art, Covers for Paws With a Cause, and Melanie Renee Photography for sharing the fruits of their artistic endeavors with our critters.


Have a great time while helping animals in need. We have many different volunteer opportunities to use the special talents of everyone- from young to old!
