Five dogs and six kittens found forever homes at Ala Moana Center on Saturday, but it wasn’t at a new pet store, but a new pop-up.

The Hawaiian Humane Society held a grand opening of its Whiskers and Wags pop-up retail shop next to Tommy Bahama at Ala Moana.

It’s selling Humane Society logo items like t-shirts, pet treats and the aloha pet hoodie, and it offered dogs and kittens for free adoptions, courtesy of Crazy Shirts.

“We are so excited because they have been wonderful partners with us. They’re a pet-friendly mall, and they allowed us to have this space just for the holidays to help the animals of Oahu,” said Hawaiian Humane Society communications and community events coordinator Suzy Tam.

Whiskers and Wags will be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through January 15.

Proceeds benefit the humane society’s mission.
