Walking the dog is a necessary activity for those of us in apartments. And, a big reason we chose apartment life. It's a healthy activity - for the dog and me - that I often talked myself out of when we had a nice, big yard for our pooch to run around in. For the past year and half, the walks have improved my health - fitness level, mental clarity, reduced stress - and the amazing urban wildlife around the bayou has inspired a new hobby of photography. And now this!
Another value added to our mandatory dog walks: earning money for a animal shelter or rescue of my choice. With the app, Walk for a Dog, I simply:
- downloaded the free app,
- entered my email address,
- waited for an email confirmation,
- added some brief info about my dog,
- hit start and was walking and earning for the local animal rescue/shelter of my choosing.
So simple. So helpful.
(** And if you don't have a dog, choose the "Walk for Cassie" option and enjoy your healthy outing while supporting vulnerable 4-legged friends. **)
As of this writing, 800, 000 miles have been walked for local shelters/rescues!
