EVERY YEAR, WE SEE NOT JUST DOGS BUT CATS, BIRDS, MICE, IT IS REALLY CUTE TO SEE THE TYPES OF ANIMALS THAT COME IN AND WE GET REALLY EXCITED. IT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE EVENTS OF THE YEAR. WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE BLOCK PARTY? THE PET WALK IS A FUNDRAISER THAT HELPS DOGS LIKE MAUI GET ADOPTED. IT GOES TOWARD PROGRAMS THAT INCLUDE FOSTER CARE, THE PET FOOD BANK, ADOPTIONS, PET SURGERY. ALL KINDS OF STUFF AND WE NEED THE FUNDS TO HELP MORE ANIMALS AND PEOPLE ON OAHU. WE WANT TO GET SWEET BOYS LIKE MAUI A FOREVER HOME, BUT THIS IS NOT THE FIRST YEAR YOU ARE DOING THIS. THIS IS THE 29TH YEAR, THE SECOND YEAR FOR THE BLOCK PARTY BUT THE 29TH FOR THE FUNDRAISER. PEOPLE ENJOY COMING TO THE FUNDRAISER EVERY YEAR AND THIS YEAR, WE’VE GOT EVEN MORE FUN. 20 VENDORS ARE PARTICIPATING SO FAR AND MORE ARE SIGNING UP AND WE HAVE A BEER AND WINE GARDEN. A PINT FOR YOUR PUP, A GLASS FOR YOUR CAT, WE HOPE YOU WILL ENJOY ON OCTOBER 13. LAUREN: WHILE WE ARE ON THIS TOPIC, IF YOU BRING YOUR PET, WHAT CAN YOU DO?

WE ARE HAVING A CONTEST FOR THE COMMUNITY AND CORPORATE TEAMS THAT WIN THE MOST FUNDS WILL GET A PLAQUE AND THEIR PICTURE WILL GO UP. WE HOPE PEOPLE WILL PARTICIPATE. LAUREN: THIS YEAR, THERE IS NO WALK, BUT A BIG BLOCK PARTY. THE PARTY ITSELF IS SANDWICHED BETWEEN TWO BUSY ROADS AND WE WERE WORRIED IN CASE A PET COMES OFF HIS LEASH, WE WANTED TO KEEP EVERYONE A SAFE AS POSSIBLE. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO US.
