Who Let the Dogs Out?

Isle_PetWalk_Backs

Was it worth getting up über early in the morning just to walk the dog? As anyone at Magic Island would have told you on Sunday, the answer was yes. The Hawaiian Humane Society held their annual Pet Walk this past Sunday, October 4 and we were there participating in our first community/charity event.

Our marketing campaign was not extensive, in fact it mainly consisted of bombarding friends and family members with images of our mascots (Buddy) urging everyone to donate and help sponsor our cause. Our goal of $1000 was ambitious, but you know what they say, “it’s better to aim high . . .” In the end we collected a modest amount of $275. We would really like to extend a warm mahalo to all those that generously donated. Hopefully next year we can do even better!

Curtain call was 7am for registration with the walk starting at 8am. There were dogs of every shape, color, and breed.

Our other mascot Aja was a little nervous about meeting other canines.

One of the highlights was probably when they started off the walk with Who Let the Dogs Out by the Baha Men.
