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!

Skylar was recently hit by a car that shattered her hip. Following the accident her owners decided that they didn’t want her anymore. Her former owners may have given up on her, but we will not! She is going to also need a lot of rehabilitation once her hip surgery is completed and that is why we are asking for our supporters help in getting her back on her feet. Skylar is a 1 year old 40-pound female Husky and will be up for adoption after her surgery and rehab.
