When another charity refused to sell a dog to my friend who has a wonderful track record with rescues this one stepped up and made her feel like family.

To say I’m beyond impressed with Salty Dog Paddle would be an understatement. This organization raised money to provide our rescue dog Dutch, with urgent surgery that allowed him to be healthy once again. He had an enlarged prostate (due to not being neutered) which was pressing on his colon. Despite all the terrible things Dutch has been through in his life, he provides unconditional love and acceptance and we are grateful for the opportunity to receive more of that!

Salty Dog Paddle continues to raise money for dogs in need through events, their paddle board locations and more. Check them out at SaltyDogPaddle.org and support a fantastic organization that loves dogs and does so much good!

These guys pulled over 1,000 pounds of trash out of the ocean and I was proud to be a part of the cleanup! I just found out that the effort made the 2021 Guinness World Book of Records!!!

They were very helpful and caring. Unfortunately we had to put Athena down, due to the cancer spreading. Salty Dog helped us pay for some of her medical bills and I am more than grateful.

Truly amazing organization. They set up a memorial paddle out for my son who was a volunteer for the charity. I was touched by how many supporters came out in support and everything the charity did for him and I. All the proceeds they received that month they donated towards funeral expenses. Thank you for all that you do

Dealing with this organization has been just plain awful.
The board members act as if they own you after they donate to your cause. They sent an agreement to the vets office instead of Kibblez of Love and expected KOL to know their terms. KOL unfortunately had to euthanize a dog that had repeatedly bitten several people, including the trainer that hired to work with him. He was unfortunately becoming more aggressive as he decompressed. His prey drive for little children was dangerous. But since the terms were sent to the vets office and not KOL, they did not know the terms and didn’t know they had to notify anyone. Due to this, KOL was slammed publicly and the board members were slandering us all over Facebook. Then later tried to cover up their mistake with lies. We have all the proof that it was sent and signed by the vet, not KOL. So go ahead with your lies. No attorney can fix this mistake you made.

Please send your money to a charity that is trustworthy..not this one. They make false accusations and create false documents...who knows how many they have ripped off...very shady

Destiny’s story shows Salty Dog Paddle’s commitment and dedication to their dogs. Their organization takes full responsibility for payments to ensure that their dogs receive the best possible care. Without their commitment these dogs would not receive the second chance they deserve. Thank you!

Highly recommend this animal rescue. They helped my poor old pug when every other so called rescue said no. Thank you for all that you do for the animals and keep up the good work!

I am so excited to support Salty Dog Paddle. Not only do they try to help as many dogs in need as possible, but they also help support the local community. From seeing the positive turnout with doggies such as Destiny, Milo and Joel, Salty Dog Paddle has become my go-to charity of choice to support!

I just had the most amazing experience paddleboarding today! I took the tour of Lake Boca and we got to see 2 sea turtles!!! I love that the company is also a charity too - such a great idea and cause! We learned all about their conversation efforts and how they are boots on the ground saving these Turtles... Amazing work!

I’m very pleased to be a supporter of salty dog paddle. Over the years I’ve seen the stories of dozens of dogs we’ve helped and followed all the way from being rescued to being in their forever homes.

Below are some photos of my pug Roscoe who the charity saved after Hurricane Irma.

I've been a resident of Delray Beach for roughly 50 years. I've seen many different charities come and go and know that Salty Dog is here to stay. I have personally witnessed the dedicated of their volunteers to their cause and seen their efforts in the animals they've saved. I highly recommend them as a local charity.

Salty dog paddle is by far the best organizations I have had the pleasure of working with. I work at a 24hr ER and Referral Center and I was fortunate enough to be introduced to this nonprofit organization that took out so much of their time to help a sweet innocent dog named Destiny. She was accidentally dragged behind the bumper a vehicle. Salty Dog Paddle never gave up on destiny, with their efforts we were able to give Destiny all of the medical care that was needed. They even helped her find her forever home. I can’t thank them enough for all their help!

Lea and Bianca journeyed all the way from Albania to the United States, to receive the orthopedic care they both so greatly needed. Lea had four legs broken and Bianca suffers from severe nerve damage due to a prior injury that went untreated.

Salty Dog Paddle has been absolutely instrumental in helping us to raise funds for our rescue babies. This is a truly caring organization :) They do amazing work! And we are so grateful in behalf of Lea and Bianca .

Lea just had her first orthopedic surgery this past week, and salty dog paddle was with us every step of the way !

Thank you! And bless your work!

I am forever grateful to Salty Dog Paddle for raising the funds to cover the major medical for Joel. I found Joel near death in a pool of his own blood, trembling from the pain. Fast foward, after a partial ear and tail amputation, many weeks of wound care and orthopedic surgery on his fractured leg, Joel is now living a beautiful life and thriving. Salty Dog Paddle did not hesitate to step up and provide the help that Joel desperately needed.

Shepherd Help and Rescued Effort rescued a little 4lb 10 week old German shepherd puppy named Zelda with a heart condition along with a stricture to her esophagus. She should have been three times her size. She needed heart surgery to save her life. Salty Dog heard of her situation and made Zelda dog of the month. Because of this, we were able to raise the funds needed for her surgery which saved her life. Zelda has since recovered beautifully and has since been adopted by a fabulous family. THANK YOU SALTY DOG PADDLE!! Your organization does amazing things.

My foster pup endured horrible injuries from being dragged by a car and ended up needing surgery and tons of care. Salty dog helped make it all possible for him and now he is living an amazing life, so we are both immensely grateful to them! Keep up the amazing work Salty Dog!

We are thrilled that we could raise enough money to pay for all of Joel's care. If you or anyone ever have a dog in need of emergency veterinary treatment please reach out! We are a 100% volunteer-based charity, so all the proceeds we receive go back to the animals we help.

I think this is a great animal organization. I donated to Milo and got to meet him at the Yappy Hour on Friday night. It was really great to actually see where your donation dollars are going. Keep up the good work!

I love that this charity offers a service and also helps save animals! Better idea than simply doing a car wash for the pups...
