Smart Phone App Raises Money For Homeless Pets In Wichita Falls When You Walk Your Dog
The City Of Wichita Falls announced a new partnership today that will provide funding for local homeless animals. Through the WoofTrax Walk for a Dog app, each time you use it while walking your dog, they will donate to Wichita Falls Animal Services. The press release from the city has all the details:
"The City of Wichita Falls Animal Services Center is pleased to announce a new partnership with WoofTrax, an animal shelter and rescue fundraising organization, to promote a healthy lifestyle for pets (and people) and to raise funds for Animal Services to care for homeless animals.
WoofTrax has a smartphone application called “Walk For a Dog”, that can be downloaded free on IPhones and Android systems. Once downloaded (choose Wichita Falls Animal Services as your shelter or rescue), and someone is ready to walk their dog, they open the app, and begin the walk. WoofTrax will log the walk and donate funds to Animal Services. WoofTrax donates to over 4000 shelters and rescues throughout the United States. Got to wooftrax.com for more details about their program.
Walking keeps pets (and their owners) healthy and agile; enables owners and pets to bond and share quality time, helps maintain weight, and builds confidence in shy and fearful pups. It can also reduce problem behaviors such as digging, chewing, barking and burn excess energy in active pets."
The amount WoofTrax will donate to the City of Wichita Falls Animal Services is determined by the number of walkers for each animal organization, how many times they walk, and the total distance walked. The most important factor is the number of people walking for the City of Wichita Falls Animal Services. So get the app, spread the word and start walking!
