Imagine that walking your dog could not only help your pup, but also your local animal shelter!


There's a new, free app called "Walk for a Dog" that uses the GPS on your phone to track how far you walk your dog.  Then it donates a certain amount of money to an animal shelter, depending on how far you walk.



The money comes from sponsorship deals and ads, and you can raise anywhere from 10 to 25 cents per mile.



About 100,000 people have already downloaded it, and have raised over $10,000!  The best part is you get to choose where the money goes.  There's an option where you can search for shelters in your area.



To check it out, just click here and click "Get the App".
