I just had a great app shared with me called ResQWalk, and I’ll be giving it a full test run later.
The whole idea is that the app uses the GPS on your phone to track how much you walk and your favorite rescue gets some money. When you first sign in you can choose which rescue to walk for. If you want to walk for more than one you simply have to reset it to the new one. Many local rescues are already signed up so it shouldn’t be to hard to find your favorite, and the app allows you to follow as many rescues as you want. Obviously I’ll be walking for the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue, but I may from time to time walk for another.
You can download the app for either iOs or Android. It also helps you find local pet friendly areas such as parks, vets, lodging, etc. All in all a great resource for people with animal companions.
It’s that easy to help animal rescues get much needed funds. Every bit helps!
