Save the date: Tropical Paws (May 11)


Save the date for Hawaii Island Humane Society’s 16th annual Tropical Paws benefit event scheduled for Friday, May 11, 2012.

The annual gala affair is held at the elegant Four Seasons Hualalai Resort and begins at 6 p.m.

A silent and live auction, Four Seasons-style buffet dinner, live entertainment and dancing are all part of the festive evening. Tickets, $100 per person or $1,500 for a reserved table of ten, will be available beginning in April at HIHS’s Keaau, Waimea and Kona shelters, select island retail locations, and online at

“Since it began 15 years ago, this important annual event has raised more than $750,000 to support vital programs including our Second Chance Fund and Spay/Neuter Community Assistance Program,” said HIHS Executive Director Donna Whitaker.

“We are so appreciative of those who support us at Tropical Paws since this fundraiser helps keep important animal-assistance programs operating throughout the year,” Whitaker said.

The Second Chance Fund provides medical care and treatment for abused animals while they recuperate and become ready for adoption.

The ongoing Spay/Neuter Community Assistance Program is committed to ending pet overpopulation on the Big Island.
