Here’s a SUPER FUN EVENT if you are in the Southern California area … Surf Dog Surf-a-Thon.
This is the world’s largest dog surfing event that is hitting the NORTH BEACH in DEL MAR (aka Dog Beach or the River Mouth) in Southern California Sunday September 12, 2010. Iams will be sponsoring the event and will be there to capture photos, video and interviews from some of the 120 surfing dogs and 150 human surfers in attendance!
From the site …
Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon is a fun event that raises funds for orphaned animals at the Helen Woodward Animal Center. Owners and their pets will participate in 20 minute heats based on the dogs weight class. They will be judged on their ability to ride the waves, having fun and staying on their boards. There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for each weight class and the first place winner will move on to the finals. This event will help raise awareness and money for orphaned pets while promoting responsible pet ownership. Interactive sponsor tents will be on sight for pet owners and their families, providing lots of fun activities for everyone. Helen Woodward Animal Center will be on sight with adoptable dogs and trained professionals to answer any type of animal related question. HWAC will also have an interactive tent with fun games and crafts for children and pets to play.
If you are in the area … drop in and have a good time! If you are unable to make it to the event, you can sponsor a dog surfer team and their fundraising goals, or sponsor the Helen Woodward Animal Center directly … I’m sure your contribution and donations will be greatly appreciated!
Hopefully .. we can get some cool looking photos and videos of the event next week up here or in the PetLvr Community. If you are participating or will be attending .. please drop by with some photos and tell us how it went!
