About

Please see our "Smartphone + Exercise w/ Wooftrax = Free Money for RHR" opportunity! The Wooftrax application donates more money than the ResQWalk app (this posting)! But you can also try this App to see which app you like the best.

Make sure to click on [+] READ MORE button below to read more information on this opportunity!

Get Healthy and Raise Money for RHR at the same time! It's fun & free!!!

Let your miles help by downloading the app on your cell phone. Put in your pant's pocket while you Walk, Jog, Run, Hike, Bike (under 14 mph), X-country ski, Snow Shoe, & etc... It calculates the mileage, time, maps the route and gives you your stats for the day, month, and year! I even used it a few times to get me back to my car from a hike. ;O)

  • AGE REQUIREMENT: None -- If under 18 years old please get permission from your guardian/parent
  • DURATION/TIME COMMITMENT: 30 minutes per walk/As long as you wish
  • START: Immediately
  • COMMUNITY HOURS: We do not provide a letter for this position -BUT- you can get information from the ResQWalk app on your phone (miles & hours walked). ALSO if you do a "drive" for Kennel Supplies, Pennies for RHR Fundraiser or a Garage/Tag Sale at your school/church/community center you could have someone LOCAL be a Coordinator of your hours.
  • MORE VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES: ** PLEASE CLICK ON THE BLUE "Ruff House Rescue (RHR)" LINK (located on the upper, left-hand side of the page ABOVE the red "I want to help!" button). ** Once a new page opens click on the volunteer listing you are interested in learning more about.

HOW:

The ResQwalk application is an iOS mobile app that enables animal lovers to raise money for animal rescues 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, with a friend, or in a group). Each walker's distance is recorded and added to the rescue's weekly sum.

NEXT STEPS:

  1. Download the FREE application on your cell phone through www.ResQWalk.com
  2. Once in the application is on your phone choose "Ruff House Rescue" as your shelter
  3. Before you start exercising log into the app on your phone
  4. Make sure there is a green circle ("Start Walk") before you start.
  5. If not, you have to click on the "Ruff House Rescue" logo at the VERY bottom of that app's screen. **Otherwise your miles won't count towards RHR. You can start this opportunity immediately.
  6. Please click on the red button "I want to help!" on the upper left hand corner of the page and
  7. Include in the comments:
    • If you are participating in this volunteer opportunity --- we want to Thank You!
    • Your comments/thoughts about this opportunity
    • Your question(s)
  8. While awaiting a response back from RHR please visit our website: www.ruffhouserescue.org

F.A.Q.:

  1. At the end of the week donations are paid out to the Rescues proportionally to the total distance walked.
  2. Example of earnings -- from 1/2015 to 9/2015 our Supporters walked 2,479 miles = $101.73 donated!! Donation pool during this period was usually $800-$1,000 per week.
  3. More companies get involved with ResQWalk = more sponsorships = more money for donation pool each week = more free $$ per week to RHR!
  4. More people use ResQWalk for RHR = more free $$
  5. If you want you can post your results to your Face Book page
