So, if you’re like me you really, really wish you could own a dog. Unfortunately though, you 1. don’t have the space 2. don’t have the time and 3. are waiting for when you have 1 and 2. I go for walks all the time and stare longingly at dog owners leading their furbuddies on awesome adventures. Man, I wish I could just take a dog for a walk without necessarily owning one…

walkzee, walk a shelter dog program

The guys at Walkzee had that exact same thought. Walkzee (@Walkzee) is a new, free platform that just launched on Kickstarter. It’s the first program to connect people with local shelter dogs in need of a walk… and people in need of a four-legged friend.

The platform will allow people to search local dogs that could use a day in the sunshine, allow you to schedule a walk with them, and then leave a review and/or adopt your new walking buddy.

Visit and search your local area

Scroll through shelter dogs in your area that are in need of a walk

Choose the dog you want to help and request a walk

Enjoy your day out with your new best friend!


“We started walkzee after taking part in an amazing shelter dog field trip program in Hawaii, where locals and visitors are encouraged to visit and take shelter dogs out for the day. We took Big Z (the Zee in walkzee) out for the day and saw first hand what an incredible initiative it was – benefiting the dog, the shelter and the walkers!”

Not only do you get to spend time with an awesome dog, but you help out the shelter too! It’s really a win-win for everyone. Please consider donating to their Kickstarter project if you want to make Walkzee a reality for you and me!
