CENTRAL POINT, OR – A partnership with WoofTrax and Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health USA Inc is helping to raise funds and awareness for Dogs for Better Lives (DBL).
“I’m excited that this partnership has come to fruition, through the generosity of our sponsor Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health USA Inc. The Step Up for Service Dogs Challenge will not only raise much-needed funds for Dogs for Better Lives, but it will help raise awareness about what makes a true, accredited Service Dog,” said Doug Hexter, DBL Board Member and CEO of WoofTrax.
Throughout the challenge, supporters can turn their daily walks with their dog into life-changing donations for Dogs for Better Lives. The Step Up for Service Dog Challenge will be taking place on the WoofTrax app between now and July 15, 2022. For each walk recorded on the app by challenge members, 10 cents will be donated to Dogs for Better Lives to support the care and training of accredited service dogs. The maximum total donation is $10,000. These donations are made possible by our generous sponsor, Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health USA Inc.
