Pawfect Advocacy

Over 100 dogs took to the beaches on Sunday, October 15th at COA’s 3rd Annual Sandy Paws event! Sandy Paws dogs helped to raise over $11,425! These important funds will support COA’s year-round work to protect and improve the marine environment. To learn more about how COA works with pollution sniffing dogs to track down sources, visit our website and follow COA on
social media!

Pup-packs took place across the nation with participants joining in Boston, Seattle, LA, Atlanta and more.  In NJ large Packs were hosted in Sea Bright and at the Raritan Bay Waterfront Park. The largest pack united in Asbury Park with PAWsome vendors and giveaways, walk and beach cleanup, a pet costume contest and more! The Pack then enjoyed specialty cocktails, such as the “Paw-Draws” and “Hair of the Dog” sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka where a portion of each drink benefited COA. Top Dog Stella Bujold of Monmouth Beach raised $1,145 & Runner Pup Jax Ortiz raised $880. It was a great day making a difference for the beaches for pups and people!
