More than 70 dogs and their owners took to the waves in California for the Helen Woodward Animal Center’s 13th annual Surf Dog Surf-a-Thon.
The annual event sponsored by a local pet food company saw dozens of dogs hanging 10 at Dog Beach in Del Mar, CA.
The dogs rode waves in 10-minute heats and were judged by a panel of surfers and enthusiasts, who then went on to choose the “Best-In-Surf.”
The Surf-a-Thon raised funds for the Helen Woodward Animal Center, a dog and cat adoption organization in San Diego.
