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!

Salty Dog Events
We want to invite you all to a spooktacular Dog Friendly brunch Death or Glory Bar in Delray Beach! Sunday October 4th join us as we support our Salty Dog of the Month Archer who needs help recovering from chemical burns. Brunch and drink specials and of course a fun Doggy Costume contest. So dress to impress and get those costumes ready for Sunday Brunch in Downtown Delray Beach.
Meet out Salty Dog for October. Archer is Between 1-2 years old and just a very sweet boy. It is horrible to imagine the type of person who would dump a dog at the shelter in this condition. Leaving all responsibility and accountability for their pet at the door. The severe burns you see on his back were caused by chemicals.
Join Salty Dog and crew as we paddle out to our monthly Full Moon Paddle for charity on Wednesday, September 30th from 7PM – 9PM in Boca Raton. This is one of the most popular full moon paddles in South Florida. We paddle the intracoastal waters of Boca Raton and anchor up in the middle of Lake Boca in commemoration of our late volunteer, Sean “Ace” O’Connor. This paddle is perfect for first-timers since the water is so calm!
Are we closed or are we open? Are we bringing Spuds MacKenzie back from the dead to Hang Twenty for another Super Bowl commercial? Will Rob Mcelhenney wear another Salty Dog shirt?
Are you too lazy to read and just want to get out on the water? We got your back! On this page you can view the direct links to all our services without all the mumbo jumbo…
Meet our Salty Dog of the month for August, “Little Bean.”
This 2-week-old Chinese crested pup was rescued from a puppy mill. He needs a cleft pallet surgery once he is 8 weeks old. It’s a miracle he is alive today!
We will be getting an estimate shortly for his surgery.
Some of the top rated Independent rock, reggae, and hip-hop musicians from across the country have come together to volunteer their time for one common cause – to save the lives of Injured Rescue Dogs in South Florida. They will be broadcasting for 3 solid hours in HD live from their homes on Sunday, August 2nd from 2pm – 5pm EST (11am – 2pm pacific).

One of the most commonly questions we receive is how to checkout through the website in order to make a reservation. As such, we have prepared a step-by-step tutorial to help you through the checkout process.
Meet our Salty Dog of the month for the month of May, Sawyer. We chose Sawyer because the chances of making a full recovery are very high despite his condition! Sawyer has a growing tumor infiltrating his ear canal and causing him severe pain, so he needs surgery to remove it as soon as possible before it potentially spreads.
