Mark your calendars! Saturday, May 18th is the 13th Annual Pet Day on the Bay. This Fido-Friendly Family Event will help benefit the orphaned pets at the Helen Woodward Animal Center (HWAC). As always, this occasion is being supervised by Hornblower. HWAC is entirely grateful for their loving support!
For more than a decade, San Diego Bay lovers and canine fanatics have joined forces as they set sail on Hornblower’s popular, pup-friendly Pet Day on the San Diego Bay. This year marks the 13th annual delightful dog and dock-side adventure and it promises a tail-wagging good time.
Well-behaved canine of every breed, age and size are welcome to the Hornblower’s Pet Day cruises. Canines will have to be kept on their leashes throughout the cruise for their own safety. Guests are invited to board with their pets in tow.
There will be three separate departure times that day: 9:30 a.m., 11:15 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Those planning to set sail will be offered a FREE canine ticket with the purchase of one adult ticket costing $24. A portion of the proceeds will go toward supporting the orphan pets at the Helen Woodward Animal Center.
HWAC would also appreciate if those cruising that day would bring a gently used blanket or towel as a donation for the pets. Even if you are unable to sail, you are still able to help the Center by dropping off your blankets, towels or even a financial donation.
Hornblower only allows canines to cruise one a year for free with their owners. Helen Woodward is so progressive that they have unique events such as this annual cruise to support their immense efforts. In order to display some of their good works, HWAC will have some of their adoptable animals portside in order to wave the partygoers off with a hospitable paw. Each cruise will depart from San Diego B Street 1066 N. Harbor Drive, San Diego.
Renee Resko, VP of Development for HWAC commented, “We are really touched at the kindness Hornblower Cruises shows to our orphan animals. It’s lovely to partner with a business that genuinely loves animals. For thirteen years Hornblower has given pet-lovers a wonderful and unique way to connect with their favorite furry friend and then give back to orphan animals, too.”
