Event Information

Event Info:

For this year’s event, we added more fun filled activities for you and your family. Participants (dogs) will gather on the beach and then run full speed ahead into the Rhode River to demonstrate their owner’s commitment to helping the animals at the SPCA. Help the SPCA by asking family and friends to sponsor your dog’s “plunge”. By visiting www.SpcaPuppyPlunge.org you will have the opportunity to create your dog’s very own fundraising page. Any donation of $40 or more will receive a SPCA Puppy Plunge t-shirt (while supplies last)!


Event Highlights:

  • Music!
  • Demonstrations
  • Great Food, Beer, Wine, & More!
  • Children’s Activity Area- for all ages
  • Dog Bikini Contest
  • Puppy Pie Eating Contest for big and small


Most importantly, the dogs will have a blast taking the “plunge” into the river on either Muscle Beach (for bigger dogs) or our Petite Beach (for smaller dogs)!


General Event Admission: $8+ suggested donation per person (children under 10 years old are free) Dogs Free! Tickets can be purchased at the gate.


Registration for contests: To participate in the Puppy Pie Eating contest, please pre-register at www.SpcaPuppyPlunge.org or wait until the day of the event. Space is limited so register early!

Registering ahead of time will give us an idea of how many we expect to have for each contest. Contest entries will be accepted up to 30 minutes prior to each individual contest. You won’t want to miss these events!
