Thank you so much for supporting homeless pets in your community and around the country by logging your miles on the ResQwalk app.

The ResQwalk app allowed users to raise money and resources for their favorite animal welfare organizations by logging their steps over the years. 

As time has progressed, goals have updated, and different operating systems are requiring extensive updates to keep the app running. After careful analysis and feedback from participants, ResQwalk was discontinued on September 30, 2023.

Best Friends will continue to support our United States-based network partners by providing more flexible, innovative fundraising opportunities that will create more consistent revenue, maximize lifesaving, and help make the United States no-kill by 2025.
