The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation® Launches Virtual Dog Walking Challenge

In need of one more reason to lace up your sneakers, grab your pup’s leash, and head out for a w-a-l-k? In an effort to raise money for families, rescue groups, and shelters in need of financial assistance, the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation® has launched a 10-week walking challenge in partnership with WoofTrax, a free app that helps animal nonprofits earn donations by logging walks in the App.

Join “Step Up For Pups”

From now until November 19, pet parents in North America are invited to join "Step Up For Pups" in the WoofTrax App. Just by going for regular walks with your furry friend, you could help dogs across the country receive life-saving medical care.

How to Sign Up

Signing up is as easy as downloading the WoofTrax App on your smartphone and creating a username and password. From there, you’ll be able to join the challenge, log your walks and be entered to win prizes!

Dog lovers who log 20 dog walks (that are a quarter of a mile or more in length) during the 10-week challenge period will be entered to win the grand prize of a $500 donation to the shelter or rescue of their choice, or a 20-Pack of Day Care at their local Camp Bow Wow.

And if you log three or more walks a week, you’ll be entered to win fun prizes for yourself or your pup from sponsors including Rise Brewing Co., Nancy's Pampered Pet Treats, Applaws Taste Toppers, Fur Pete's Sake Apparel, K Squared Artisan Boutique, Art From Energy, Tall Tails and more.

Walking for a Good Cause

Looking to increase your chances of winning? Donate $5, or more, to the "Step Up For Pups" challenge and you’ll provide life-saving care, medicine, and surgery to pups in need. Every $5 equals one entry to win.

"The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation has always been rooted in our commitment to support the health and happiness of dogs across the country," said Julie Turner, President of Camp Bow Wow. "With the influx of applications we received this year, we wanted to create a safe, but fun, fundraising format that allows us all to step up together and give sick and injured dogs a second chance at life."
