The unofficial end of summer has passed but don't tell that to the really rad Rovers who will soon rally at Del Mar Dog Beach for a day filled with sunshine and surfing in support of a paws cause.
On September 13th the Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon and Beach Day will celebrate a decade of dogged devotion to the life-changing efforts of the Helen Woodward Animal Center. Pet parent and their pups are invited to watch totally tubular tail-waggers hang 20 during 10 minute heats in different weight divisions. Along with the chance to win a medal, all of the dogs participating will win the admiration of attendees as they raise funds to help homeless canines and cats.
Making a big splash this year, budding Moondoggies can also show off their skills in the surf during the Paddle Paws SUP Challenge. Registered adults and canine-loving kids will help Fidos make their way through a four-part obstacle course complete with a floating tunnel and inflatables.
Other activities include a canine costume contest, a Paddle Paws parade, fun for animal-loving little ones, the chance to shop for Spot among an array of vendor booths, and much more!
A happening with a lot of heart, the 10th annual Surf Dog Surf-a-Thon benefits the Helen Woodward Animal Center, a 12-acre no-kill facility in Rancho Santa Fe, California founded more than 40 years ago, which helped 3,181 dogs and cats find forever pet parents to love in 2014.
