On behalf of the entire Hawaii Doggie Bakery Team, we wanted to say thank you so much to everyone who came out to our Doggie Scavenger Hunt!

We had a paw-tastic turnout of 20 Teams with 34 Doggie Team Members! We were so thrilled to see so much enthusiasm for the event and the program this event was in honor of: the Hawaiian Humane Society’s Pet Visitation Program.

It was so exciting to see people and pups solving clues and finding Joy Ambassador Teams around Manoa, and their photos were so creative and FUN! (If anyone would like to share any that we could use to post on our website/social media please feel to e-mails us with your favorites!)

We were especially surprised and blown away by the Teams that took it to the next level with matching team shirts and themed costumes!

We would like to give a big thank you to our honored guests:

  • Sharon, the Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator from the Hawaiian Humane Society. If today’s information about the Pet Visitation Program peaked your interest and you’d like to learn more (or even sign up!) Sharon is the one who can help you out!
  • Our Joy Ambassador Teams: Kristine and Kaia, Mike & Mikie, Gina & Kanoe and Joanne (our Mom!) and Ini. We appreciate them volunteering their Saturday morning, sharing their stories and spreading word about the pawesome program they participate in!

Last but not least, our friend Keri, Keri Nakahashi Photographywho volunteered her time and talents in taking Team Photos. Keri will be posting/e-mailing the photos sometime next week.

Both Teams scored a perfect: answering all the Pet Visitation Team questions & completing all doggie tasks, all the photos in the Photo Hunt, and they also got the same amount of Bonus points!
