HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)-20th anniversary of Petwalk! Sunday, October 3, at Magic Island at 7 am with a mahalo party for those who have collected donations for the Hawaiian Humane Society and for a short (.5 miles) or longer (2 miles) walk around Magic Island and Ala Moana. People can bring their pets. People can also join the walk without pets. The morning will be filled with food, fun, and games! Entertainment will be provided on the main stage, along with our ever popular pet trick and costume contests. The fundraising goal this year is $150,000.
The Hawaiian Humane Society is a private, nonprofit on Oahu and does not receive funding from any mainland organization such as the HSUS or ASPCA. Many of the Humane Society's services are funded entirely by donations including emergency pet foster care for people in crises; adoptions, free spay/neuter services for feral cats, education and advocacy efforts, and so much more! Your donations will greatly support the 2010 renovations to the dog kennels and other improvements to enhance the quality of life of animals while in our care.
