Pet walks slated for Oct. 26-27
The Hawaii Island Humane Society (HIHS) Hilo Pet Walk will be staged at Liliuokalani Park on Saturday, Oct. 26, and the Kona Pet Walk at Kona Commons on Sunday, Oct. 27.
“There is still plenty of time to do advanced fundraising. It’s easy with FirstGiving.com/HIHSPetWalk. Just click, create your own personal fundraising page then email family and friends far and wide to donate,” said Executive Director Donna Whitaker. You may also download and print a registration form and solicit donations in person. Visit the News and Special Events page at HIHS.org.
As if helping shelter pets through donations to Pet Walk weren’t incentive enough, all walkers who raise $50 or more in donations receive a free Pet Walk T-shirt. Hilo and Kona Pet Walk registration begins at 8 a.m., walks begin at 9 a.m., followed by fun contests and prizes.
“We thank our Pet Walk 2013 sponsors: Tinguely Development, PETCO Foundation, Keauhou Veterinary Hospital, Alii Veterinary Hospital, The Pet Hospital Hilo and Paws University,” said Whitaker. “The mission of the Hawaii Island Humane Society is to promote respect for all animals, prevent cruelty to animals, eliminate pet overpopulation, and enhance the bond between humans and animals.”
HIHS holds a contract with the County of Hawaii to enforce certain animal-related laws and it offers 24-hour service for injured animals and other animal emergencies, humane education classes, low-cost spay and neuter services, lost and found assistance, microchipping and more.
