Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Annual Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon marks its 11th year on a very important date – 9/11. Paying tribute to the wonderful first responders and their working dogs who keep us safe, this year’s dog surf spectacular will include patriotic ceremonies with special tributes for the heroes (both human and canine) who show their skills and bravery on dry land. In the water, more than 80 talented dogs will be judged on their ability to catch waves, stay on the board and fun-factor. The freestyle competition returns this year! Don’t miss the best dog surfing in SoCal.
