While we all love our domestic animals dearly, there is something to be said for the appeal and intrigue exotic animals possess. Their brilliant colors, anatomical diversity, and unique vocalizations inspire wonder and awe. Wouldn’t it be a truly amazing job to protect and care for the rarest animals in the world? This is a stellar opportunity for all PVC members with an interest in exotic animals to join us on 1/31/15 to participate in a behind the scenes tour of the Honolulu Zoo’s Vet Clinic, as well as participate in assisting making toys for animal enrichment. Hope to see you there!

FUNDRAISER FOR: Equine 808 Horse Rescue

PURPOSE: To raise money to change the horse stall flooring from mud to rock. Horses can contract thrush, the rotting of the frog of the hoof from constantly standing in wet and muddy stalls. These conditions can also cause horses to slip and injure themselves. The current stall flooring is just earth, so it is difficult to clean, allowing urine and feces to accumulate.

WHERE: Panda Express (Paradise Palms)

HOW: Print or show an electronic copy of the fundraiser flyer as you checkout from Panda Express! THIS IS A MUST!!It is attached at the bottom of this post.

WHEN:  All day 12/1/14

POINTS?!1 point for participating in this fundraiser! Please bring your receipt or a photo of the receipt for proof of participation at our next meeting!
