The 2015 PetWalk brought thousands of people, their pets, and many supporters of the Hawaiian Humane Society out to Magic Island for their annual fundraiser on October 11!
It’s an exciting time for pet owners as this is the only day of the year that the city and county of Honolulu allows pets in the park.
In addition to the walk, the PetWalk also featured food vendors, an obstacle course, a Pet Float Contest, and a Pet Costume Contest. More than $270,000 was raised at the event, and additional donations are being accepted until October 31.
Pets can give you love, support, and a big boost in your well-being. According to a study published by the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, pet owners had greater self-esteem and were able to bounce back from rejection better.
