Santa Paws In Need Of Presents For Pets

MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - Front Page - By RASA FOURNIER

With all the hol­i­day buzz, the folks at 55 Pawsh Place are mak­ing sure an­i­mals get some at­ten­tion too.

Owner David Souza and wife Cheri in­vite fam­i­lies to bring in dog food and gen­tly used pet items, in­clud­ing col­lars, leashes, toys, beds, cloth­ing and more, for a col­lec­tion drive Satur­day to ben­e­fit K9 Kokua.

“Dur­ing the hol­i­days, I know a lot of peo­ple are do­nat­ing to other or­ga­ni­za­tions, but I want to re­mind them that there are dif­fer­ent shel­ters and pets that need some love too,” said Cheri. “K9 Kokua works with the home­less pets along the Wa­ianae coast. A lot of fam­i­lies in the area are in need as well. They tend to spend the lit­tle in­come they have on pur­chas­ing gifts for their chil­dren, but they’re al­ways so happy when we can bring them toys for their pets.”

The Souzas are mak­ing sure it’s a win-win deal, with cus­tomers re­ceiv­ing 15 per­cent off “like items,” so you can bring in your used items and get a deal on some­thing new for your own pet.

Also on the hol­i­day sched­ule is a treat for cus­tomers who pur­chase a bag of cat or dog food five pounds or larger on Nov. 28, to be do­nated to the Oahu SPCA. Be­sides help­ing to feed the more than 150 pets liv­ing tem­po­rar­ily at the Kapolei shel­ter, the re­ward is a free hol­i­day por­trait ses­sion with lo­cal pho­tog­ra­pher Keith Ue­hara, and a 5-by-7 print.

For more in­for­ma­tion, visit 55 Pawsh Place at the Halekuai Shop­ping Cen­ter (563 Far­ring­ton Hwy., Suite 105) in Kapolei or call 6742055.
