Help the dogs by walking

Download the ResQWalk app onto your phone to help the Must Luv Dogs group, which rescues dogs in East Feliciana Parish and Zachary. Each time you walk, open the app and press “start.” It runs in the background so you can check emails, text and use your phone. Once the walk is over, press “finish.” The app tracks your miles and adds them to the group's monthly total, allowing it to share in the designated donations of the month. It's a way to contribute to the mission of Must Luv Dogs.
