About this app

You can help raise awareness and support for animal welfare organizations and deserving pets looking for their forever homes, simply by walking with this free mobile app.

Simply pick your favorite animal welfare partner from the list, start the app, and go for a walk, run or participate in any other outdoor activity that can be measured by GPS and involves a speed of less than 14 mph. At the end of every activity, share about your adventure and pet to help inspire more to adopt and save them all.

Some months, corporate sponsors may provide a pool of cash and product contributions you can help secure for your selected group or you can participate in the monthly walking goal or challenge.

Please note: continued use of GPS running in the background may significantly decrease battery life.

I've had this app for a few years now. Great concept if it would keep accurate or even half accuracy walk distance. Within the last few months it's hit or miss (more miss lately) on reading the walk. I usually walk three miles a day and I'm lucky if my charity gets credit for even a half mile. I'll keep it only because when it does decide to work, my charity gets something. No matter how small.

Love this app: great idea, easy to use. I like that it keeps track of walks, both map and distance. I like seeing other user's pics. Yes, I've had the straight-line-can't-tell-my-exact-route problem, but that's no big deal - I'm not expecting this to be my primary fitness tracker.

Update 7/24/20. We managed to get logged back in but still never got a reply from the developer. We did find out what the issue was with it not tracking our total mileage. We both are using phones running OS 10 and under Settings>Permission>Location> you need to select Allow all the time. If you don't it only tracks you when you have the screen on and not in standby. This doesn't mean it is running when you aren't using the app and we've seen no additional drain on the battery when not in use. We had to make that same change on another hiking app. Adding a couple more stars. This is a wonderful idea and we support Best Friends and volunteer in animal shelters. We have used the app on both our phones for a good while now. Recently it became erratic on my wife's Samsung Galaxy S5 so we uninstalled and reinstalled. Now we can't log in to the app. Tried resetting the password and still can't login. Sent an email to the developer asking for help which goes without a reply. Update. It won't work reliably on an LG G4 or Galaxy S10. I've given up and deleted it.
