Paddle for Puppies 2019

Austin Subaru presents the 8th annual Paddle for Puppies event at Rowing Dock on Lady Bird Lake. This event benefits the Parvo Puppy Program at Austin Pets Alive!. The rowing course will begin and end at Rowing Dock, and the turnaround point will be just past the Congress Street bridge at the Austin American-Statesman property.

🚣‍♂️ Grab a boat and hit the water with us! You'll join a group of 400+ attendees and paddle a kayak, canoe, or SUP on a roundtrip group-paddle down Lady Bird Lake.

We’ll provide a Paddle for Puppies t-shirt with registration, coffee and snacks to fuel you for the row. There will also be various vendors with free goodies!

*𝗔𝗹𝗴𝗮𝗲 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝗰𝗲𝗿𝗻𝘀*
At this point in time, the city has recommended that dogs stay out of Lady Bird Lake due to potentially hazardous algae that is present. Until further notice, we will be asking our participants to leave their dogs at home for their ensured safety; dogs will not be allowed on participant's boats this year. 💙As a friendly reminder, swimming in Lady Bird Lake remains illegal and we do not permit it during the event.

Last year, this event raised $29,000 to help the Parvo Puppy Program at Austin Pets Alive! 😱 100% of the gross dollars raised will be donated thanks to our friends at Austin Subaru and Rowing Dock. Help us reach our goal again this year!

Registration is limited, so claim your spot today! You won't want to miss it! http://www.paddleforpuppies.com/

We encourage pugs and humans to wear their most tropical fashions.
Photo props and ops will be available.
Games galore, including the limbo and pug races.
Kiddie pools available for the puglets to cool off.
There will also be human and dog snacks.

If you've been thinking of adding to your grumble, Pug Rescue of Austin will be attending with pugs looking for new homes and they will have the Pug Kissing Booth open for business. The Doghouse Drinkery will be celebrating National Ice Cream Day and will have human and dog ice cream available for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Pug Rescue Austin.
