Great news!  The Golden Retriever Rescue Club of Charlotte is now a registered beneficiary with WoofTrax Walk for a Dog.

Walk for a Dog, by WoofTrax, is a simple, year-round fundraising app that records walks taken.  It promotes healthy interaction between dogs and their owners while creating the opportunity to earn donations.  Walk for a Dog allocates funds from sponsors and directs them as donations to local shelters and pet rescue organizations across the country, including the Golden Retriever Rescue Club of Charlotte.

 How Walk for a Dog Works

Go to, download the free app, register and select ‘The Golden Retriever Rescue Club of Charlotte’ from the list of rescue organizations then start walking!  Note that the list of organizations is in alphabetical order.  Our club is listed under the Ts as ‘The Golden Retriever Rescue Club of Charlotte’!

Walks of a quarter mile or more are recorded via the app and attributed to the participant’s chosen animal organization.  Walks, hikes or runs taken without a dog can also been included.  Just tap Start Walking when beginning your walk or run and the app will track the time, distance and speed of your walk/run.  The amount of donations an organization receives is based on the number of active walkers registered, not the distance covered.  The key is getting more people signed up and using the app at least once a week.
