(BIVN) – The Hawaii Island Humane Society is putting out the word on its two, annual Howl’ween events set for the next two Saturdays on either side of the island.
The 2019 Howl’ween Dog Walk at The Shops at Mauna Lani will be held on Saturday, October 26 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., and according to a media release:
All walkers with or without dogs are invited to participate and are encouraged to raise pledges to support shelter animals.
“Our Howl’ween Dog Walks bring tons of smiles to participants, pooches, and passersby. There’s no better way to enjoy a Saturday afternoon in Mauna Lani Resort and to encourage the camaraderie between pets and their owners,” said Hawaii Island Humane Society Chief Executive Officer Charles Brown. “You can’t help but smile when seeing a great costume on a dog and their owners!”
Event highlights include costume competitions including best human/dog duo, a photo booth and beer, wine and cocktails. There are prizes for the most funds raised too!
Getting started is easy to do and it’s fun. Get your personal fundraising link and sponsorship information at hihs.org.
Proceeds from the Howl’ween Dog Walk will benefit many of the Hawaii Island Humane Society’s many needs including pet supplies and free spay and neuter services to help to eliminate pet overpopulation.
The 2nd event Howl’ween Event at PETCO Hilo will be on Wednesday, October 30 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Everyone is invited to join the ghoulish fun on Wednesday, October 30 at PETCO Hilo. Festivities include a costume contest, adoptable dogs and treats for dogs and keiki. It’ll be fun for the entire family!
“You can’t help but smile when seeing a great costume on a dog and their owners! We hope to see you at The Shops at Mauna Lani and at PETCO in Hilo,” said Hawaii Island Humane Society Chief Executive Officer Charles Brown.
The events are sponsored by BRIO Photo Booth Co., Tito’s Vodka, Kona Brewing Company, PETCO and The Shops at Mauna Lani, organizers say.
