Lucy Pet Foundation Seeks Surfing Dogs in NYC for 2017 Rose Parade Float

Calling all surfing dogs! Lucy Pet Foundation wants YOU to star in their 2017 Rose Parade float! They will be coming through New York City with the first-ever portable wave maker machine searching for the most talented local surfing dogs. Audition winners will appear as canine surfers on the Lucy Pet Foundation 2017 Rose Parade float.

Surf dogs Sully and Coppertone ride the waves on the Gnarly Crank'n K9 Wave Maker. 

The wave maker machine, known as the "Gnarly Crank'n K9 Wave Maker" has made successful appearances at Universal Studios Hollywood, America's Family Pet Expo, and Bark at the Park with the Oakland Athletics and Houston Astros. The wave maker is a 75-foot long tractor trailer filled with 5,000 gallons of water for plenty of surfin' fun.

Local NYC residents can bring their dogs to auditions on Sunday, September 18 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals "Adoptapalooza" at Union Square Park.

Alternatively, dog parents can purchase a special Bark at the Park ticket to attend the New York Mets game on Wednesday, September 21. Prior to being seated on the way into Citi Field, all surfing canines can audition from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

"These surfing auditions are really a fun time," says Joey Herrick, founder of the Lucy Pet Foundation and Lucy Pet Products. "It's great to see the smiles on the dogs, owners, and spectators faces. We encourage everyone to come out and showcase those pooches with surfing talents. Who knows, they could be surfing on our Guiness Record setting float in the Rose Parade in Pasadena come January 2, 2017."

The Lucy Pet Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) animal charity whose mission is to reduce pet overpopulation and high numbers of pet euthanasia in the nation. Lucy Pet Products is a family owned and operated business based in Thousand Oaks, CA. The company mission is to provide the highest quality products for pets' health and wellness.

Lucy Pet Products even has their own resident surfer as their spokesdog. His name is Surfin' Jack and you can usually find him decked out in sunglasses and a brightly colored shirt. I met Surfin' Jack earlier this Summer and he is definitely one cool dude. You can follow Lucy Pet Products and Surfin' Jack on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram: @LucyPetProducts and @SurfinJackDog.
