The fourth annual West Oahu Pet Walk takes place this Saturday, June 3, and hundreds of pet owners and pets are expected to participate.
The event starts at 6 p.m. at Ewa Puuloa District Park and benefits Poi Dogs & Popoki (PDP), a nonprofit committed to providing affordable spay and neuter as well as vaccinations for adoptable animals. It’s the organization’s biggest fundraiser of the year.
There will be featured “bites” for humans along the route, with pupu provided by Russo’s Coal-fired Italian Kitchen, California Pizza Kitchen, Buffalo Wild Wings, Hoakalei Country Club, and Luibueno’s Mexican and Latin Cuisine.
Register online by May 31 to receive a free LED collar, a bag of Teeth Treat™, and one entry into prize drawings, including 50,000 Hawaiian Miles. Those who register after May 31 can still purchase an LED collar for $5.
Registration costs $50 per family. Pet owners can also fundraise for the registration fee, and for every additional $50 raised, receive an additional entry into the prize drawings. Raise $100 and receive a PDP hydroflask.
The event also features an “Ask a Vet” booth, canine distraction course, photo booth, pool play, and a Poi Dog bath and spa.
