Our beloved Labrador and Kauai vacation rental mascot, Duke, urges everyone to support Bark for Life in their local communities. We took him up on the invitation and will be a Gold Sponsor on Kauai. This non-competitive walk event for dogs and their owners raises funds and awareness to fight cancer. Duke can’t think of a better cause than this one from the American Cancer Society.
Bark for Life, June 1, 2013, at Kauai Community College
Event Time: 7:00 am Registration, 8:00 am Walk Starts
Location: Kauai Community College, Theater Steps
Registration Fee: $25 to register one dog, $40 for two or sign up a team of up to 5 dogs for $100.
Even if you do not have a dog to enter, this Kauai event has many activities for the entire family to enjoy. In addition to the walk, canine and their companions can indulge in a variety of games including a hot dog eating contest, one for small dogs and one for bigger dogs, a quick re-call contest and best trick. There will also be an obstacle course for canines either before or following the leisurely walk around the KCC campus. Awards will be given to Best Dressed, Biggest and Small Dogs and other novelty judging criteria.
Book our Summer Deals and you may see Duke.
If you have been to our Koloa office, Duke is usually there to greet guests. He also likes to play ball during the week at Poipu Beach or at kid friendly Keiki Cove seen here. Duke is also one of the best coconut huskers the local canine community has ever seen.
First direct release pet on Kauai. Prior to 2007, four-legged family members arriving in Hawaii were quarantined for weeks on Oahu and separated from their outer-island families. When the laws changed, Duke was the first Kauai arrival to go from the airport, to a mobile veterinary examination room, and then to family release all in the same day. He felt the Aloha spirit immediately and was reconnected with his favorite person, company owner JP Parrish.
