Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon
Presented by Pet Paws

Helen Woodward Animal Center’s 11th Annual Event Pushed to October 2nd due to Contaminated Waters   

Helen Woodward Animal Center’s 11th Annual Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon has been postponed due to an unfortunate water contamination advisory at Dog Beach in Del Mar.  The 11th annual Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon will now take place on Sunday, October 2nd, 2016 from 8am to 2pm PST. at Dog Beach in Del Mar.

Del Mar Lifeguards notified Helen Woodward Animal Center about serious water contamination readings pulled from the ocean at Dog Beach in Del Mar.  The high level of contamination required beach personnel to erect signs warning individuals and canines not to enter the water for up to 72 hours.  Per this warning, Helen Woodward Animal Center has decided to push the planned festivities to Sunday, October 2nd, 2016.

The postponement is devastating to Center staff and the hundreds of volunteers, vendors and special guests who have been planning the annual event but the health and safety of friends (human and canine) is of primary importance to Helen Woodward Animal Center.

Thank you for your understanding! We hope to see you on Dog Beach NEXT week!
