ResQwalk is a mobile app that enables you to raise money for homeless animals and earn prizes every time you go for a walk.
Created by the team at ResQthreads, ResQwalk is an iOS mobile app that enables animal lovers to raise money for animal rescues and shelters in the United States and Canada every time they go for a walk.
Each week ResQwalk announces a donation pool (e.g. $2,500) and in order for a rescue to receive donations from the pool, its supporters simply need to check-in to the app when they go for a walk (with a dog, alone, or with a friend). Each walker’s distance is recorded 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.
Other cool features of the app include: prizes at the end of each walk, a news section with pet related content, a shop section with product deals and offers, and profile pages for users and rescues to track both miles walked and dollars raised.
