Community raises $280,000 for Oahu’s animals in annual Pet Walk

Thousands of feet and paws pounded the pavement at Magic Island Sunday morning, and at the same time raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Oahu’s animals.

The Hawaiian Humane Society’s Petwalk 2016 attracted 2,700 people and their pets of all breeds and sizes.

Through the charity walk, the community helped to raise $280,000.

At the walk, the humane society was also drumming up foster families for the hundreds of dogs rescued from Waianae earlier in October.

“We’re currently at almost 50 percent with them being fostered out into temporary homes while the investigation continues,” said communications manager Allison Gammel. “So we are currently seeking foster volunteers and we’re holding orientations regularly throughout the week.”

So that means about 150 more dogs need foster caring, if you’re interested you find out more by clicking here.
