What is a Salty Dog?

Salty Dog is a state of mind that It's Okay to be Salty! Semper Fi

Go to MISSION

MISSION

It is the life-saving mission of Salty Dog Paddle to use paddle 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. Salty Dog uses 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.

Go to VISION

VISION

It is the vision of Salty Dog Paddle that the domestic 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. Salty Dog envisions 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.

Salty Swag

The purchase of any Salty Dog clothing or apparel item finances our emergency fund for animals in distress. Salty Dog supplements the costs our partner animal rescues and marinelife organizations have to face by selling our signature line of clothing and apparel, called Salty Swag.

The costs of the raw materials Salty Dog uses in the manufacturing process of our Salty Swag brand have been covered by our sponsors, which you can read about on our sponsors page above. Without them, it would not be possible to donate 100% of the sale of our merchandise to the animals Salty dog helps save.

How it Works

“Every Purchase Saves a Pup.”

The purchase of a hat for $15 and shirt for $20 can pay for food for a rescue dog for an entire month or a rabies tag. The purchase of two shirts and two hats can do both! Salty Dog has plenty of different styles to choose from so we promise you’ll find something that embodies your Salty style…

Better yet, if you decide to embark on a paddleboarding tour, lesson, or excursion you can pay for a rescue dog to be spayed or neutered! The more you spend… the more you can help!

About Salty Dog Paddle

Surf Clothing and Apparel, SUP Lessons and Tours, and Events all benefiting animals!
Every penny we receive goes directly back to the animals we support! Oorah!

Salty Dog 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 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 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 buy some pawsome Salty Swag, take a paddleboarding eco-tour, go on a group excursion, or just attend one of our events, you’ll know that every penny you spend is going back to the animals we support!
