Join us for Tropical Paws, a magical evening in support of our island's animals!
Hawaii Island Humane Society proudly invites you to attend the 24th annual Tropical Paws benefit, at the beautiful Four Seasons Resort Hualalai.
Join us for a magical evening, filled with food, fun, and of course, furry friends, to support the lifesaving programs and community outreach services of Hawaii Island Humane Society.
Tropical Paws is Kona's premier fundraising benefit, featuring the adoptable pets of Hawaii Island Humane Society. Our event includes silent and live auctions, gourmet food and drinks, and special presentations to highlight our lifesaving work.
This year, we have an ambitious goal to raise $1 million, which will cover the majority of our operating costs for the year to come. For the past two years, we have had to forgo our event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are thrilled to be able to host our event this year and hope that we can count on your support to make this evening a tremendous success for the animals. Your contributions will change the lives of animals in need and make a positive impact in our community. With your help, we can continue to be there for those who need us most: the animals!
COVID-19 Mitigation Plan:
Per the CDC guidelines, as Hawaii is considered a ''low risk'' community, we will no longer be requiring proof of vaccination or proof of a negative test. We will, however, continue to require mask wearing throughout the event unless guests are seated at their tables or actively eating/drinking. Additionally, we ask that all guests monitor their symptoms and do not attend in the event that they are experiencing symptoms consistent with a COVID-19 infection. Furthermore, we also ask that guests consider self-testing at home, out of consideration for the safety and health of others.
