Every third Saturday of the month we host Aloha Ilio at the store for an adoption event which is always very exciting for everyone involved. The amazing Aloha Ilio volunteers are always ready to answer any questions that you might have as well as being able to accurately describe a dogs personality since all the dogs are in foster homes and not at a shelter. With this event two dogs were adopted and were able to go to their forever homes!
