KEY LARGO, Fla. -- Dogs up for adoption joined other pups and their owners on paddleboards and kayaks in the Florida Keys for a fundraiser benefiting a local pet rescue group.

The "yappy happy hour" paddle was held Monday to raise funds for a Florida Keys pet rescue organization.

 

Key Largo's MarrVelous Pet Rescues & Adoptions staged the event to raise animal rescue awareness and facilitate dog adoptions to forever homes.

 

The monthly event, held with a local outdoor outfitter, attracts beginner-to-expert paddlers to enjoy a pre-sunset paddle on Key Largo waters.

 

The gathering also encourages people to bring their pups along during recreation activities on the water.
