Salty Dog Paddle

Dog-Friendly Stand-up Paddleboarding (SUP) Nonprofit

ALL proceeds go to animals in need...


It is the life-saving mission of Salty Dog Paddle to use water sports as a vehicle for raising funds and awareness for pets, Marinelife, and water safety throughout the globe. Salty Dog Paddle accomplishes this mission by offering dog-friendly stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) and surf lessons and eco-tours wherever volunteers are located. We use the paddleboard tours as an opportunity to teach participants positive behavioral training techniques for their dogs and educate participants about the importance of our Marine ecosystem.


It is the vision of Salty Dog Paddle that the animal rescues we partner with will have enough funds to cover the costs associated with emergency medical treatment of the dogs they rescue and that our oceans are protected from pollution and harm to Marinelife. We envision a community where owner-surrender rates are reduced enough to eliminate the need for government-run kill shelters while reducing pollution in our oceans and ensuring participants understand the importance of our Marine ecosystem.

Community Outreach

Specific to community and social change, Salty Dog Paddle works with Operation 120 to educate the public about domestic animal behaviorism and use the fundraisers we host as a vehicle to teach owners proper handling techniques and positive behavioral reinforcement in order to reduce owner surrender rates. Along with the Pet Education Project (PET), our volunteer educators teach kids at the elementary school level about domestic animal interaction and training as an early intervention strategy against owners surrendering their pets.
