Don’t just take your dog for a walk… Take your Walk for a Dog!

Download Walk for a Dog app:

The more people actively walking with the free Walk for a Dog app, the greater the donation to the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri! Use the app each time you grab for the leash. It’s healthy for you, your dog, and for us!

Every Walk for a Dog counts, whether it’s a walk around the block or a three-mile hike. Magnify your impact by sharing the app with your friends and family. You can even consider making a personal gift to the shelter —right through the app.

General Questions
How does the app work?

After you download and set up the app on your smartphone, take your phone with you when you walk your dog(s). Simply press the Start Walking button and the app will keep track of your walk. When you are done with your walk, press Stop Walking. After the green heart appears next to your walk on the History screen, it is successfully logged for your selected organization.

How do donations work?

Funds from each donation period are divided among shelters and rescues based on the number of people who are actively walking for each organization as seen on the Impact tab of the app. The more active walkers who are cruising for us per donation period, the more (and more often!) that we receive donations.

What is an “active walker?”

An active walker is anyone who uses the app an average of at least once a week. So to remain an active walker for us, please use the app once a week (at the very least)!

How are the donations funded?

The app’s donations are funded by sponsorships and advertising, so the more people actively walking, the more money we can raise (from interested sponsors and advertisers), and the more we are therefore able to donate!

How much money did we last receive from Walk for a Dog?

Contact us to inquire about how much we last received from WoofTrax and Walk for a Dog.

How can I increase the amount donated to the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri?

The more people actively walking with the app, the greater the benefit to us! Here are some ways you can magnify your impact:

  • Spread the word! Tell your friends about Walk for a Dog, and share the app on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
  • Consider making a personal gift directly to the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri through the app, using the Make a Gift feature on the Impact tab.
