The SUP Connection was a proud sponsor on September 7th, 2014 in the Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon. Yet another amazing event that we were very happy to be apart of. The SUP Connection helped provide paddleboards for the event and spread the word about stand up paddling with your favorite 4-legged friend.
The Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon is an annual event that raises funds for orphan pets and programs at Helen Woodward Animal Center. Owners and their pets participate in 20-minute heats based on the dogs weight class. Each dog is judged on their ability to ride the waves, fun-factor and staying on the board. There are 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for each weight class and the 1st winner moves on to the finals.
This event raises awareness and money for orphan pets while promoting responsible pet ownership. Interactive sponsor tents will be on site for pet owners and their families, providing lots of fun activities for everyone. More information available here: http://www.animalcenter.org/events/Surfdog/
