Adopt a Duck Now!
Bayshore Pet Resort
We take great pride in the care we provide to your four-legged family members.
After 26 years in the hotel business, Robin decided to work with the 4-legged variety of guests. They bark more, but they bite a lot less. In 1999 Bayshore Grooming was purchased and her life has gone to the dogs ever since.

Although boarding was always available, in 2005 Pet Resort was added to the name. With this came the 10,000 square foot resort comprised of state-of-the-art boarding facilities. Pets run the show. They spend as much time out of their pet resort as possible (unless pet parent requests otherwise). There is never an extra charge for walks or playtime — where dogs are separated by size and temperament — it’s all included in one price.

Bay Shore Pet Resort is proud to sponsor the Incredible Duck Race!

About the Incredible Duck Race
Get your Ducks in advance, you don’t have to be present to win!

The Kiwanis Club of Tampa will race 10,000+ Rubber Ducks down the Hillsborough River on April 8, 2023. The first three ducks to cross the finish line will win amazing cash prizes! You don't have to be present to win.

  • First Place Prize - $5,000
  • Second Place Prize - $1,000
  • Third Place Prize - $500
  • Additional prizes for 4th-10th Place
All proceeds will benefit the Kiwanis Club of Tampa charitable foundation, which sponsors many local projects and programs for children. Although we would love to have you attend, you don't need to be present to win - so take a chance and adopt a duck!

The Incredible Duck Race is a FREE event in Curtis Hixon Park with family friendly music, food, and activities all leading up to the big race. Tickets are not necessary to attend, but you must adopt a duck to participate in the race. Ducks can be adopted at for $5 per duck.

About The Kiwanis Club of Tampa
The Tampa Kiwanis Club has been helping children in the local community since 1919. Our enthusiastic members pursue creative ways to serve the needs of children in our community. Locally we build ramps for the disabled, hold immunization events, purchase holiday gifts for kids in need, provide scholarships, work with leadership clubs in schools at the middle school, high school and college level, and build reading rooms in Boys and Girls Clubs around Tampa. Additionally, our foundation provides grants to local non-profit organizations. Learn more at

PLEASE NOTE: We are partnering with a company that runs these races all over the world and have taken many measures to be sure that these ducks are not a threat to our beautiful waterway. The ducks will be contained in a lane and funneled to the finish line. We will have several boats and volunteers on hand to help make sure all of the ducks are collected and accounted for. Our goal is to leave the river cleaner than we found it.
