From Friday, August 14 through Sunday, August 23, paddleboarders, kayakers, and canoers from across New Hampshire will be hitting their local waterways with their four-legged friend to celebrate the return of the Seacoast Paddle for the Pups.

As a fundraiser for the NHSPCA, this virtual paddle offers a fun way for paddlers of every skill level to get outside, have fun and give back as all proceeds benefit the animals of the New Hampshire SPCA, providing lifesaving care now and into the future.

Not a water person? No problem! Our event host, and friends at Seacoast Paddleboard Club put together the following ways you can help support this amazing event! Of course, if you have any questions about the paddle, we encourage you to send us an email at [email protected]

On behalf of all of us at the NHSPCA, we would like to thank all the paddlers, their supporters, and our sponsors for helping us make animal welfare a priority!

#1 Register and Paddle with Your Pup

The easiest way to get involved is to sign up, pick a time to paddle with your pup and share your photos using the #SUPPupNH hashtag.

# 2 Create a Team and Paddle

Creating a fundraising team and paddling is a great way to build comradery among friends, family and co-workers while supporting a good cause. Also, if you own a small business, forming a team is a great, cost-effective way to increase brand visibility and loyalty!

OK, you do not paddle. That is OK. You can still make a difference by donating to the NHSPCA on behalf of a paddler or team. Donate here!

# 4 Become a Sponsor
