Walk for a Dog!

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

Imagine every time you take your dog for a walk, you are helping other dogs (and cats) with every step! A new app does that and it’s doesn’t cost you a cent. This app is supporting shelters across the nation and now it’s helping UPAWS!

All you have to do is download this app on your smart phone. Turn it on every time you walk, bike or run your dog and UPAWS will receive a donation to help the homeless pets. You can also track your mileage and map your routes with this app. Super cool!

Go to WoofTrax.com, download the app, and support UPAWS every time you walk, run or bike with your dog!

UPAWS Volunteers: Use this app when you are walking the UPAWS dogs. You’ll be doing two great things at once!
