Introducing Oahu SPCA's First Surf & Rescue Event!

"Make Waves for Animals" at the First Oahu SPCA "Surf & Rescue" Virtual Fundraiser

You're invited to grab your board, paddle out, and make a splash for a cause close to our hearts! The Oahu Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) proudly announces its inaugural "Surf & Rescue" virtual fundraiser and challenge, aimed at saving animals in need.

With a staggering 6.5 MILLION animals entering shelters each year, the Oahu SPCA is calling on all animal lovers to join the movement. From May 1st to May 31st, participants will dive into action, aiming to collectively log 6.5 MILLION “steps”, symbolizing each animal's journey toward a forever home. Whether you're surfing, paddling, swimming, or stepping, every stroke and stride counts towards our shared mission.

This innovative virtual event breaks barriers, allowing participants to choose when, where, and how to get active. Not limited to Hawaii's shores, our event welcomes participants from across the globe. So, whether you're catching waves at Waimea or strolling through Central Park, you can make a difference.
