Hornblower pet day benefits center

Hornblower’s 10th annual Pet Day on the Bay is May 15. A “Ten and A Towel” is this year’s theme: People pay just $10 per ticket with the donation of a gently used towel or blanket, and dogs board for free with an owner. The towels and blankets will warm orphaned animals at Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe, while a portion of each $10 ticket helps fund the center’s planned new facilities.

Check in and board at the Hornblower ticket booth, 1066 N. Harbor Drive in San Diego.

Boarding is at 10:15 a.m. for the 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. cruise, at 11:45 for the noon to 1 p.m. cruise, and at 1:15 p.m. for the 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. cruise.
