What is a Salty Dog?
Salty Dog is a state of mind that It's Okay to be Salty! Semper Fi
Salty Dog Paddle is a nonprofit surf and SUP brand whose sole purpose is to save injured rescue dogs and marinelife.
By stepping up where animal rescues can’t.
Through the brand and dog-friendly water sports activities and events.
It is the vision of Salty Dog Paddle to become a world-famous Surf and SUP brand that remains a nonprofit and generates enough funds so no animal has to suffer due to lack of resources.
100% of the sale of our Salty Swag benefits a different severely injured rescue dog each month, which we refer to as our “Salty Dog of the month.” Click HERE to view our current inventory!
How it Works
Not only does our Salty Swag benefit an injured rescue dog, as a nonprofit SUP & Surf brand, all the proceeds from any watersport’s activity including stand-up paddleboarding rentals, lessons, or private tours, and surf lessons also benefits that same Salty Dog!
About Salty Dog Paddle
Salty Dog Paddle is a state of mind. Whether the mind of a canine, human, or sea turtle - It’s Okay to be Salty! What started out as a small family-owned surf shop in Cocoa Beach, Florida in the late 1970s, Salty Dog Paddle is now the largest paddle sports public charity in America! It boasts over 150 volunteers across the United States with headquarters in Palm Beach County, Florida.
Since becoming a nonprofit in 2015 Salty Dog Paddle has partnered with over 30 animal rescues and marinelife organizations to save hundreds of animals and clean our beaches and oceans. The best part about our brand is that all of our proceeds benefit the animals we save – we do not keep any portion! So, whether you want to purchase some Salty Swag, take a paddleboarding lesson, attend a party paddle, or just attend one of our out-of-water events, you’ll know that all the money we receive is going back to the animals we support!

Join us Friday, August 30th from 4:30 PM – 8 PM at CWS Lake Worth for our monthly “Yappy Hour” (Happy Hour) benefiting injured rescue dogs in Palm Beach County.
Meet our Salty Dog of the month for August. Wylie is a 9-month old puppy that was thrown out of a car window by his former owner while driving. He will need extensive surgery to correct his legs and hips.
We couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the season where everyone is 0-0 than to have an NFL Themed Bar Crawl which also gives back to the community on August 24th in downtown West Palm Beach!
SUP for Pups will take place on Sunday, September 1, 2019 in Deerfield Beach, Florida. This is the first Challenge Salty Dog Paddle has solely hosted since Surfs Up Dogs, which took place in 2013. Like that event, the purpose of this challenge will be the same; to raise money for injured rescue dogs and marinelife. The charity pledges that 100% of all proceeds from the challenge will be used for that purpose.
Join Salty Dog Paddle at Death or Glory in Delray Beach for a doggy brunch on Sunday, July 28th from 11:00AM – 2:30PM!
Venus is a Husky puppy that was surrendered by her previous owners. When she arrived to our partner animal shelter, she was extremely emaciated and malnourished. In addition, she required emergency pneumothorax surgery to remove a part of her lung. Being given up to a shelter, arriving at the rescue, and immediately undergoing major open chest surgery has been extremely overwhelming for her, but this extremely sweet girl is handling such an awful situation with grace as she recovers at her foster parents’ home.
