Help Homeless Cats by Putting on Your Sneakers

Calling all iphone users! Now there's a mobile app that helps you save homeless animals with every step you take! Thanks to ResQwalk, every time you take a stroll around your neighborhood, your steps are tallied to raise money for your favorite animal rescue.

Each week, ResQwalk announces a donation pool (e.g. $2,500), and in order for a rescue to receive donations from the pool, their supporters simply need to check-in to the app when they go for a walk. 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. And as a bonus, at the end of every walk, the user is offered a reward (like 45% of specialty rescue apparel), that when redeemed, helps fund future donation pools.

The ResQwalk application is available for download in the Apple Store. Remember to choose Alley Cat Rescue as your favorite rescue and wear comfortable shoes.
