Are you and your dog participating in K9 Kamp Fitness Challenge? We sure hope you’re having better weather than Daisy and I are here…it’s been terrible and we already had our first Tropical Storm of the 2013 hurricane season!

We won’t bore you with all the details, which mainly involve me doing my Hip Hop Abs DVD in the living room while Daisy laughed at me, but I did want to make sure to share this cool free phone app I discovered recently called Charity Miles.

You can use it to earn free donations for your favorite charity when you walk, run or bike! Choose from ASPCA, Habitat for Humanity, The Nature Conservancy and loads more worthwhile causes and not only does this app track your miles but it also makes a donation on your behalf. It’s as easy as this: get moving. Bikers earn 10¢ a mile and walkers and runners earn 25¢ a mile!

Charity Miles is a free app available for both Apple and Android devices.  Visit their website or check out this video to learn more:

Imagine how much money we could raise for charity if all the K9 Kampers use this cool app! Be sure to leave us a comment letting us know how you’re doing with this month’s fitness challenge. Then head on over to K9 Kamp HQ and enter to win some paw-tastic prizes for participating!

Emergency Relief Waggin

Daisy and I love bringing you stories about how you can help support efforts to help animals in need. We’ve blogged about how you can take the ASPCA Pledge to End Puppy Mills by promising never to shop for anything at a store that sells puppies. Well, you might have seen the shocking news about the recent puppy mill situation in Johnston, S.C.

The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society of Charlotte were called in by the Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office to assist in the rescue of approximately 250 animals including more than 200 dogs of various breeds and ages living in deplorable conditions.

PetSmart Charities heard about what was going on and dispatched its Emergency Relief Waggin’ vehicle, stocked with $90,000 worth of crucial supplies, to the scene where animal rescue teams will operate an emergency shelter. The vehicles are stocked with crucial supplies, including pet food, wire crates, plastic carriers, bowls, fans, and more to aid the animal rescuers on scene.

This is where you can help support the PetSmart Charities’ Emergency Relief program by making a donation online to help more pets like these find the loving homes they deserve. Any amount will help, and no donation is too small.

If you aren’t able to donate money, you can still help by using the “Share the Love” buttons below to share the story with friends and family. Tweet, post to Facebook or Pin to Pinterest! Even just giving this post a “Like” or G+ will help make sure more people know about the need to help support this important work!
