Preservation Society of Huntington Dog Beach
The Preservation Society of Huntington Dog Beach is a non-profit organization founded in 1997; our mission is to protect and preserve access to the beach for dogs and their people, as well as to promote responsible dog ownership in order to make our canine companions welcome members of society. We have a five-member Board of Directors which serves on a voluntary basis (no monetary compensation).
We rely entirely on private donations to keep operating. That means that Huntington Dog Beach is
100% community funded and supported.
Biodegradable Doggie Waste Bags: Dog Beach visitors use over 3,000 bags daily during peak-season. This is our highest single expense, but has proven to be the most effective method to helping keep the dog beach areas clean.
Insurance & Taxes: We are required to carry worker’s compensation insurance and general liability insurance for our staff to work at Huntington Dog Beach and for our organization.
Printing/Copying of HDB Literature: It is important that we provide written literature for visitors that explains the rules of the beach, along with tips and suggestions for making each visit a successful one; we also send renewal notices to our members, thank-you letters, etc.
Miscellaneous Expenses: Miscellaneous expenses include such things as beach clean up supplies, repairs to our canopies, replacing bag dispensers, updating signage at the beach, phone line, office supplies, website, etc.
*Our overall expenses average $8,000-10,000 per month.
