Helen Woodward Animal Center’s 8th Annual Surf Dog Surf-A-thon to be held at Del Mar Beach

The Helen Woodward Animal Center will hold its 8th Annual Surf Dog Surf-A-thon on Sunday, Sept. 8, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Del Mar’s Dog Beach. Helen Woodward Animal Center’s canine surf contest is the largest of its kind in the country and will feature more than 80 dogs surfing in four different weight class competitions.   Winners are selected based upon their ability to ride the waves, have fun and stay on their boards.  Each “hang twenty” surf heat is judged by surf pros and aficionados including celebrity judges.   The top winners from each category are invited back to surf in a final “Best in Surf” at the end of the competition.

Other dog-and-family friendly activities scheduled during the Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon, presented by Helen Woodward Animal Center and Blue Buffalo, will include the Beach Bum Bikini Babe Canine Costume Contest; a Team Spirit Competition – where people and pets in costume surf together to raise funds; over 40 interactive vendor booths; and two newly added activities, including a Fido Frisbee Festival and a Special Kid’s Activity area – with Sandcastle Building, Musical Towels, Hula Hoop Contests and more.  All proceeds from the annual competition and festivities will go towards the animals and programs at Helen Woodward Animal Center.

For more information or to register, visit www.surfdogsurfathon.org  or call 858-756-4117 x 356.  You may also stop by Helen Woodward Animal Center at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe, or log on to www.animalcenter.org.
