We’ve teamed up with KONG again! During the week of January 11th – 17th, 2016 – hit your weekly walking goal and help earn bonus toys for animals in need! Last week, we teamed up with KONG to deliver toys to animals at Auburn Valley Humane Society. The campaign was such a success, we’re doing it again this week!
Here’s the Deal
In addition to our regular ResQpool – this week – if 500 people hit their weekly walking goal by Sunday January 17th at 11:59pm EST, KONG will distribute a bonus $500 worth of toys to animals in need. This week’s beneficiary is Save the Animal Rescue Team, II in New Jersey. What do you say – are you ready to go the extra mile for animals in need?!
*You will need the most recent version of ResQwalk to access the goals feature – so don’t forget to update! Set up your weekly walking goal by going into ‘My Profile’ and entering the distance goal you’d like to achieve. There is no minimum or maximum distance. Just pick a distance that works for you!*
Why toys make a HUGE difference for animals in shelters
Shelters are generally loud, crowded, and often stressful places. Simply providing an animal with a toy or chew item can make a huge impact. Best said by our friends at Rock & Rawhide,
“If a dog is chewing, it’s not barking! If a cat is playing, it’s not meowing! Less noise = less stress. In turn, dogs and cats can pass their evaluations at shelters, and show more of their personality, making them more adoptable.”
We love this, and we love KONG for helping make the lives of shelter animals better as they await their furever homes!
