The 10th Annual Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon, presented by Helen Woodward Animal Center and Blue Buffalo, takes place on September 13, and is a dog surfing competition in Del Mar, California, which raises funds for pets and people in need. Pet parents and their dogs participate in 15-minute heats based on the dogs’ weight class. Surf dogs are judged on their ability to stay on the board, ride the wave, and have fun, too! There are 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for each weight class. All the first place winners from each weight class move on to the finals. There are Grand Prizes awarded to our top three finalists at the end of the day. To learn more about the Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon and Helen Woodward Animal Center, please visit www.animalcenter.org.
