Sailors for the Sea's 'Salty Dog' Membership for Ocean Loving Canines

New Membership for Seafaring Dogs Extends the Support of the Organization's Efforts of Ocean Conservation

NEWPORT, RI--(Marketwire - March 21, 2011) - Sailors for the Sea, the only ocean conservation nonprofit focused on the sailing and boating community, introduces its 'Salty Dog' membership that allows dog owners to register their dogs as Sailors for the Sea supporters.

The 12-month membership gives seafaring canines the opportunity to display their love of the ocean and support of ocean conservation. Each month the Sailors for the Sea newsletter and website will feature a Salty Dog and their water activities. By sharing their dog's love for the water, dog owners can help spread the word about ocean conservation. Each 'Salty Dog' owner will enjoy full membership benefits, including a Sailors for the Sea sticker and brochure, 20% off Atlantis WeatherGear merchandise, and 30% discounts on all ePaint products.

"Dogs and boating go hand-in-hand," said Dan Pingaro, executive director of Sailors for the Sea, and proud owner of Tiller, the honorary Sailors for the Sea Salty Dog member. "The love of water is inherent in boaters and dogs. Our Salty Dog membership is a natural extension of our membership efforts and is being met with incredible enthusiasm."

Registration is easy. Visit select 'Salty Dog' in the drop down menu and in the comment section provide Sailors for the Sea with the dog's name. Along with the membership confirmation, registrants will receive a questionnaire about their dog and water lifestyle. Once completed and returned to Sailors for the Sea, their 'Salty Dog' profile will be developed.
