Best Friends Animal Society, an American nonprofit 501 animal welfare organization, has launched ResQwalk, a free mobile app that allows users to raise money for animal shelters across the U.S. every time they go walking. For every kilometer covered, a donation is made thanks to sponsorship by dog supplements company Front Of The Pack.
The ResQWalk free mobile app is simple to use. Users just need to:
- Download the app within the Apple App Store or Google Play
- Select your shelter
- Walk your dog and donate!
The app tracks the distance walked, and each month Front of the Pack provides generous sponsorship to be shared across the shelters according to the distances walked. To date, over 240,000 users have downloaded the app. Each day over 30,000 users cover an average of 15,000 kilometers, so far raising almost $30,000.
“As a dog supplements company focussed on science, it is our mission at Front Of The Pack to make clinically-backed products that truly help dogs and improve lives. We’re incredibly proud to be partnered with Best Friends Animal Society and sponsoring the ResQwalk app to save thousands of lives and improve the wellbeing of dogs all across the country,” Neil Hutchinson, CEO at Front Of The Pack
Per the No Kill Advocacy Center, “No Kill is an innovative, cost-effective model of animal sheltering that allows open admission animal control shelters to end killing. Unlike the “adopt some and kill the rest” form of animal sheltering that has dominated in the United States for the past 100 years and is responsible for the needless deaths of millions of healthy and treatable animals every year, No Kill shelters are saving as high as 99% of all animals entrusted to their care.”
Across the U.S. last year, over 2.35 million lives were saved at animal shelters. But still 625,000 pets entered shelters and didn’t make it out simply because they had no safe place to call home. Front Of The Pack is partnering with Best Friends Animal Society to help with its mission to make every shelter no-kill by 2025.
“At Front Of The Pack we are a team of animal nutritionists, veterinarians and dog owners here to provide clean, natural products for our four-legged friends that actually work. This journey started with pet healthcare and now together with Best Friends Animal Society and the ResQwalk app we can give thousands of dogs the gift of a second chance,” Chris Wilkinson, Co-Founder at Front Of The Pack
