excited to announce our attendance at the 8th Annual Surf Dog
Surf-A-Thon + Beach Day on Sunday, September 8th at the Del Mar
Dog Beach! This event is primarily a surf competition for dogs that raises
funds for orphaned animals at Helen
Center, but there will
also be bunches of other activities for all attendees to participate in. Festivities
kick-off at 8AM and run until 2PM.
Surf Dog is
a fantastic opportunity for friends, family and dogs to come together for a day
of fun, sun and surf, all to benefit beloved animals. Two-legged and
four-legged attendees can choose to either hit the waves and participate in the
surf competition or watch the action from the beach where there will be games,
a costume contest, food and more. There is a $35 fee for dogs to participate in
the surf competition and $35 fee for people. To participate in the Beach Bum
Costume Contest there is a $10 donation.
Fridono, a Top Surf Dog Fundraiser shared that “Although some see this event as
a competition, the animals awaiting their fate see us as their last chance at
survival… It’s as easy as asking your family, friends, and co-workers to donate
at least a buck. It’s as easy as posting a request on Facebook, Twitter and
other social media!” For more information about Surf Dog and the ways to get
