K9 & Keiki Carnival celebrates rescue dogs and the human-animal bond! It will be a fun, interactive day for dogs and kids to get their "play on," as well as learn more about how they can make a difference in our community. This will be a dog-friendly event you won't want to miss!

  • Dog-related "carnival" games
  • Keiki games & activities
  • Dog contests
  • Vendor booths (support local!)
  • Food trucks
  • Entertainment
  • Bounce house
  • Prizes & much more!

Proceeds from this event will go toward helping hundreds of less fortunate dogs
on Oahu, as well as educating our keiki about animal welfare and responsible pet
ownership. Mahalo for being a Fur-Angel!
