Our 15th Annual Pet Day on the Bay was pawsome! A round of applause to everyone who came out to support the cause and brought gently used blankets for the needy animals at the Helen Woodward Animal Center. While it was a rainy start, no one let that bring them down, especially the dogs who ponied up to our doggie treat bar.
We had many pup-friendly activities such as expert dog training tips meant to help Fido out with some of his, ahem, less than great habits. There was also a special appearance by Jagger and Kristi from Magic 92.5. Doggie mommies and daddies had fun mingling and enjoying the gorgeous San Diego skyline.
Photo opportunities were aplenty with many doggies dressed up for the big event. Some at the event took the nautical theme to the next level by getting onboard with some very trendy doggie fashion. There were doggie skippers, first mates and even captains. Luckily, they didn’t take over the wheel to steer us to Doggie Island. Even kids got into the spirit by dressing up like their favorite canines. The dogs who are up for adoption stole the show. They were as lovable as they were photogenic posing for glamor shots.

Many thanks to everyone who made this event happen. Our sponsors, Port of San Diego and Petco, were great. Through the ticket proceeds and donations, we were able to help a lot of pets in need at the Helen Woodward Animal Center. If you didn’t make the event, there’s still many ways to benefit this wonderful charity.
We hope to see you next year! That should give you plenty of time to plan for more fabulous doggie duds.
