Are you willing to freeze your tail off for the animals? Join the New Hampshire SPCA’s 8th Annual Doggie Paddle Plunge. Take the plunge for New Hampshire homeless animals. Register, raise funds, and dive into the frigid Atlantic Ocean alongside hundreds of other animal lovers on February 24th in New Castle. SPCA Plunge-170311-003

 

 

Don’t want to freeze but want to support the animals? Register as a Virtual Plunger for $15 and raise funds without diving. Or make a donation to one of the many excited Plungers to help them reach their goal. No matter what you choose, you’re supporting animals in need.

Funds raised will help the New Hampshire SPCA continue its lifesaving mission. Now this is a cause worthy of freezing your tail off. Four-legged friends can watch from the beach but no doggie plungers permitted.
