Paddle for Paws 2018!

Woodard Marine wants to end the summer with our Paddle for Paws event! This event will raise money for local animals in need. All proceeds will be donated to the Rutland County Humane Society. Our goal is to raise as much money to help these animals in need. The Rutland County Humane Society will bring the "Pet Book". This book is a journal of all the animals that are looking for a forever home.


When & Where 

On Sunday, September 2nd, 2018, kayakers, canoers, paddleboarders and boaters will gather at the Woodard Marine Marina at 9:30 a.m. 

Paddlers will have a brief safety meeting to go over the course and rules of the event. Once everyone is briefed, the group will leave and paddle the course together. Pets are welcome to attend and participate by accompanying their owner on the journey. 



Details & Donation

 The cost of the event will be a $25 donation per paddler; of course you can donate more if you would like.

The entire course shouldn't take any longer than a couple of hours. We will have a Woodard Marine boat pacing the paddlers to provide any assistance if needed. 

Payment due upon arrival.
