ResQwalk App: Walk to Help Homeless Pets

Helping homeless pets is now as easy as taking your dog on a walk. How great is that?!

CBHS is now part of ResQwalk. It’s a mobile app that enables you to raise money for homeless animals and earn prizes every time you go for a walk. (Hopefully you’re walking with a pet!)

ResQwalk launched in the summer of 2014 by Bailey Schroeder. The app was created to give people an easy way to donate to animal welfare organizations. With the popularity of fitness and walking apps, Schroeder saw an opportunity to appeal to animal lovers who might be short on time and money but still wanted to make a difference for animals.

The app tracks the distance walked. Each walker’s distance is recorded in the user profile and added to the rescue’s weekly sum. At the end of the week, donations are paid out to the rescues proportionally to the total distance walked.

At the end of every walk, the user is offered a reward that, when redeemed, helps fund future donation pools.

Here’s how it works:

1. Download the ResQwalk app onto your smartphone

2. Open the app and log in through Facebook or Twitter
