If you’re on vacation without your dog, it can be a little lonely. Or, if you don’t currently own a pup and wish you could partake in dog activities, you might feel as if there’s something missing.

Fortunately, there’s a website for that. Walkzee is a service that can change the lives of shelter dogs and dog lovers everywhere.

Walkzee is a website that lets dog ruvers search for shelter pups and take them on walks. Imagine, you’re on vacation and would love to go on a beautiful hike. All you need is a pup by your side. And, the site is free for both shelters and potential dog walkers!

The brainchild of Charlie and Crissy Saunders, they were on vacation when they wished their own pup could’ve joined them. That was when Walkzee was born. It’s a simple service that connects shelter dogs to humans. Pups can enjoy walks and physical activity and connect with more humans. And hopefully, they’ll find their new forever homes much faster.

Users can location search and find shelter pups that are up for adoption. Once you find a lovable pup to walk, you can schedule a walk and await confirmation from the shelter.

Since shelters largely run on volunteers, remember to always schedule a walk with as much advanced noticed as possible. The response times from shelters varies. Distance and walk length also depend on each pup and the shelter’s policies.

Saunders hopes that Walkzee will raise more visibility and awareness for shelter dogs and ultimately help more rescue dogs find forever homes. No matter where you are, or how much time you have, Walkzee is a great way to spend some time with shelter pups and give them love, care, and happy walks.
