A YEAR OF RESCUE AND HOPE HAWAIIAN HUMANE SOCIETY YEAR IN REVIEW
JULY 1, 2016 - JUNE 30, 2017
To promote the human-animal bond and the humane treatment of all animals.
Reconciling the needs of animals and people, the Hawaiian Humane Society creates results through caring for animals, working inspirationally and effectively with people and the responsible stewardship of resources. The organization seeks to create a humane community in the broadest sense by instilling a compassion for all animals and inspiring others to advance its mission.
Your Humane Society
The Hawaiian Humane Society is an independent, local nonprofit organization that helps Hawaiiâ€™s animals and people. Founded in 1883, it is one of the nationâ€™s oldest animal welfare organizations and is Hawaiiâ€™s second oldest charity.
This past year is one our organization will never forget. We faced some of our greatest challenges alongside significant successes. In May 2016, more than 30 dogs were rescued from a puppy mill in Kahaluu. They were found in a bunker with no light and no ventilation, living in their own waste. One in particular, named Cheddar, was left for dead in a trash can. He was found by a Hawaiian Humane investigator and rushed to an emergency veterinary clinic. Sent to recuperate with a foster family, it was there that Cheddar flourished and found his new home. In October 2016, over 300 dogs were rescued from inhumane conditions on a property in Waianae. These animals were found emaciated, with severe skin conditions and other disorders, living in deplorable conditions. The Waianae Rescue was a high volume rescue by any standards, but also the largest in our organization’s history. In one day we welcomed more than 300 dogs to our campus, and to say it was a challenge would be an understatement. Staff, volunteers and the community united together to assist with the needs, veterinary care and comfort of the rescued animals. While this rescue stretched our resources in extraordinary ways, we were able to address the needs of each individual animal because of the amazing support we received from so many. 2016 tested us. And now we are stronger than we have ever been. If 2016 was a year of rescues, 2017 was a year of justice. Cheddar’s abuser, James Montgomery was sentenced to nine months in jail. He is currently serving his sentence. In March 2017, the Hawaiian Humane Society was granted ownership of the over 300 dogs rescued in Waianae. After spending months in the care of the Society’s staff, volunteers and foster families, they were finally able to be adopted. This year has shown us how deeply our community cares about animals and their wellbeing. We are amazed and grateful for the outpouring of volunteers, donations of supplies and monetary contributions that allow us to not only undertake these kinds of rescues, but also care for the thousands of animals that come through our doors. We extend our sincerest thanks to the community who supports our unwavering dedication and commitment to Hawaii’s animals. We cannot do our life changing work without you.

COMMUNITY SHOCKED AT N E W S O F HUNDREDS OF ANIMALS SUFFERING BEHIND CLOSED G AT E S I N WA I A N A E The case of this year’s rescue of animals from a property in Waianae is one that weighed heavily on the hearts and minds of Hawaiian Humane Society’s staff and volunteers. Removing animals from a self-proclaimed sanctuary was no easy decision; it was one made in the best interest of the animals and in adherence to the laws established to protect them. In October 2016, the Hawaiian Humane Society rescued more than 300 dogs and several rabbits from a property in Waianae. Dogs were living in their own filth, and kept on chains in makeshift shelters without access to food or clean water. A few of them were sharing kennel space with rodents, both dead and alive. Others were found living in overcrowded cages, their paw pads digging into bare wire. Many of the animals were rail thin. Some were too weak to stand. Ticks were found infesting their ears and bodies, all the way down to the spaces between their toes. Numerous dogs were suffering from lingering medical issues, including skin conditions, which left their fur patchy and their skin red and raw. Parasites made many anemic while other dogs were emaciated; their ribs and hip bones clearly visible.
During the medical evaluations, issues about the overall health of the dogs were identified and many were suffering from unchecked infestations of external parasites, including ticks and fleas. These factors could have potentially led to life-threatening conditions, for which the dogs were tested. Some dogs suffered debilitating skin disorders, had open wounds and pressure sores and others were malnourished and starving. A few were in critical condition and had to be taken to local veterinary clinics to receive emergency medical attention. In February 2017, after months of coordinating with the Honolulu Police Department and the Honolulu Prosecutor’s Office, the Hawaiian Humane Society cited David “Lanny” Moore and his mother June Moore each with 310 counts of animal cruelty in the second degree. The Hawaiian Humane Society moved forward to petition the court for full custody of the animals, and in late March was granted ownership of 331 rescued dogs. Indeed, the cost of the Society’s care of the animals lasting over six months was great, including medical treatment expenses, food and
continued veterinary and animal care. Hawaiian Humane foster care volunteers opened their homes to about 250 animals that lived with them for nearly six months during the ongoing investigation. President & CEO of the Hawaiian Humane Society Pamela Burns said, “Good intentions do not mean people are providing the care standards that the law requires.” Once the Hawaiian Humane Society was granted ownership of the dogs, plans for adoption were swiftly underway. The dogs were sterilized and many of them adopted by their foster families. An adoption event was held in early April for more than 30 of the rescued dogs. Families gathered to take home an animal with a story so heartbreaking, yet triumphant. Volunteers waited patiently with each dog, eager to share their story with potential families. Many were overcome with emotion, knowing that one chapter had closed for these dogs and another one was just beginning. One of the first dogs adopted that day was 6-year-old Moana. “We got Moana! She’s so beautiful,” said Moana’s new owner, Cheryl Wyman. “I saw her on the news and when we came here and I met her and we fell in love with her personality.” That day, many other rescue dogs found their way into the waiting arms of animal lovers eager to give dogs like Moana the lives they deserve. Saving these animals from horrendous conditions, providing both medical and emotional care for these dogs and creating new families stays true to the Society’s overall mission of promoting the human-animal bond and the humane treatment of all animals.
CASE U P DAT E As of July 2017, the case continues to work its way through the court system. On July 29 the last dog from the Waianae Rescue, Penelope, found her new home and family.
E N D I N G C R U E LT Y TO G E T H E R The Hawaiian Humane Society has been enforcing animal laws since 1897 and the need to help animals has never been greater. Deputized by the Honolulu Police Department, Hawaiian Humane investigators respond to animal rescues, barking and dangerous dog complaints, chicken and fowl nuisance complaints (added in 2017) and more. Hawaiian Humane Society’s field services team are trained in animal welfare, humane handling and care of animals, law enforcement and casework and mediation, but education is at the heart of their everyday work.

The Society’s rescue and response team handles thousands of cases each year regarding animals in distress or those that are victims of abandonment, cruelty or neglect. Unfortunately, there are still those which go unheard of. With Oahu residents as extended “eyes and ears,” Hawaiian Humane Society continuously strives to improve as a community resource and be accessible to animals and people islandwide. By working with individuals, groups and communities, a more humane community is in the future for Oahu’s animals.
IMPROVING THE LIVES OF ANIMALS Animals can remain at the Hawaiian Humane Society for as long as it takes to find them a home. Occasionally, that can be quite a long time. Designing and building housing that reduces animal stress and improves their quality of stay at Hawaiian Humane has been a passion project of the organization for the last several years. And that dream for the animals finally came true this past year. “Originally built in the 1940s, our campus has served as a community resource providing programs and services focused on strengthening the human-animal bond and caring for more than 25,000 animals a year,” said Pamela Burns, President and CEO of the Hawaiian Humane Society. “This project represents the latest innovation in shelter design that lends itself to maximum efficiency for staff and optimal compassionate care for animals.” Highlights of the project included increasing dog and cat housing capacity and updating living
quarters to allow for efficient cleaning and care to reduce stress. The new dog houses have an indooroutdoor design with communal areas for the dogs to socialize, as well as private spaces for rest. Cats now enjoy a second cat house with threestory lodging and vertical spaces allowing them more places to climb and explore. Currently, the Society performs 7,000 sterilizations a year and the new veterinary clinic meets the demand.
Hundreds of community members gathered at the Hawaiian Humane Society’s Moiliili campus in October to celebrate the new Admissions & Veterinary Center, as well as new dog and cat adoption houses. Pacific Asia Design Group served as the chief architect for the campus expansion with consulting provided by Animal Arts Design of Boulder, Colorado.
T H E P AT H H O M E The Hawaiian Humane Society works tirelessly to create families daily. This year saw a diversity of animals waiting for new homes. This included special needs dogs such as Kekoa, who was left with three legs after being hit by a car; a school of two hundred guppies whose owner could no longer care for them; and Kevin, a domesticated peacock searching for his new flock. Hawaiian Humane Society is committed to finding all healthy and friendly animals a home, no matter how long it takes. Some pets remain at the shelter for months while they await adoption. The Society fosters for space when full and encourages everyone to choose adoption.

For now, the Society takes immediate gratification where it can. Just a few days after Christmas, the Hawaiian Humane Society set out to adopt every available animal in the shelter. Fees were waived. Publicity was pumping. And the anticipation and excitement were palpable, as staff and volunteers opened the Adoption Center to welcome prospective families. With tails held high, the animals left by ones and twos—on leashes and in cardboard cat carriers. Families that arrived curious left beaming with broad grins, swinging bags full of supplies with their new pets in tow. Hundreds of people had strolled through the shelter to find the love of their life at the Hawaiian Humane Society. By late afternoon on December 29, 2016, all the animals were adopted except for one, a little dog named Beauty
with an underbite and scruffy charm. That day, 5-yearold Beauty had been passed over by a few families, until Jan Youth and her grandson Raceson arrived. Jan had seen Beauty’s photo on the Society’s website and was smitten. She came to visit the 10-pound pup and it was love at first sight. Finally, Beauty had found a family to call her own. As Jan and Raceson left with Beauty, staff and volunteers clapped and smiled as they lined the walkway with their applause. And America cheered with them. The final farewell video was shared on social media, garnering more than 1 million views and was featured on The Today Show, Inside Edition, Yahoo and Good Morning America. Although there had been many successful matchmaking events in the past, the Adoption Center had never been completely absent of animals. For the first time in history, the boisterous barks were replaced with a most satisfying silence.
Jan Youth and her granddaughter, Sierra, love to spend time with Beauty and Gizmo.
VOLUNTEERS PROVIDE HELPING HANDS If you filled every seat in the 8,800 capacity Neil S. Blaisdell arena, you still wouldn’t have enough seats for the total number of volunteers that dedicated time and energy this year to help the Hawaiian Humane Society and its various operations. Daily on-campus tasks, events, rescues and more are all made possible by volunteers whose commitment to the human-animal bond ensures Hawaiian Humane Society is able to reach and help as many animals and pet owners as possible islandwide. When space ran out on campus due to the Waianae Rescue and other influxes of animals, hundreds of foster volunteers opened their homes to animals in need, providing a temporary home until the animals were ready for adoption. Events continued to be a huge draw this year. Back by popular demand, Neko (“Cat”) Café returned, bringing together current and potential cat owners, and new events like Feline Fest continued to celebrate all things cat, drawing in feline fanatics galore. Volunteers serve as ambassadors in the community, whose priceless work furthers Hawaiian Humane Society’s mission of being a voice for the voiceless.

M A K I N G S P AY / N E U T E R A P R I O R I T Y Pet overpopulation means there are more animals than the community can care for. Overpopulation includes a wide spectrum of companion animals and Free-Roaming cats â€“ some of which are owned, indoor-outdoor, stray, abandoned, socialized and feral/unsocialized cats. There is a great need for accessible and affordable spay/neuter services and for Oahuâ€™s people to help get more animals sterilized. The Hawaiian Humane Society is committed to working with the community to support the sterilization needs by opening a low-fee, high-quality, high-volume public spay/neuter clinic. Slated to open in 2018, this clinic will be a vital resource in helping to control the Free-Roaming cat population. Mahalo to these veterinarians who volunteered their time to help the Societyâ€™s staff veterinarians sterilize more than 7,200 animals at the Hawaiian Humane Society: Wendy Asato, Jason Gray, Joe Herzog, Heather Kihara, Melanie Pearson and Rajdeep Turna.

T H E C I T Y â€™ S N E U T E R N OW PROGRAM IS ESSENTIAL Sterilizations are a means to help curb pet overpopulation and prevent abandonment and suffering, which can result from too many animals and not enough homes. In January of 2017, the City and County of Honolulu appointed the Hawaiian Humane Society administrator of its spay/neuter program. Certificates were sold seven days a week on campus and through the website and satellite city halls. By enlisting 23 Neuter Now veterinary clinics to serve as providers, the Society has ensured ample choices throughout Oahu. As a result, 963 sterilizations of owned cats and dogs were performed through the program since January and more than $190,000 in certificates were sold. The sales of the certificates go directly to reimburse veterinarians in the community who perform the surgeries at a greatly discounted rate. There is a great need for affordable and accessible spay/neuter services and for Oahuâ€™s people to get more animals sterilized.

The team continued on to its next stop in the sprawling acres of Kakaako Waterfront Park, tallying tails that swish and sway as they circle amongst each other. Hawaii Community Development Authority (HCDA), which runs the park, reached out to the Hawaiian Humane Society to bring more structure to its decade-long program to manage its homeless cat population. The Society urged that a point-in-time census be conducted to establish a clear population baseline as HCDA works to strengthen its partnership with cat caregivers to reduce the population through attrition. Park management and cat caregivers are unlikely bedfellows at a time in history when free-roaming cats have become a focal point of contention. Just a few days before Christmas last year, volunteers gathered and the count commenced. Seventeen cats dotted the sloping hills near the Ehimu Maru Memorial. Another five, who were believed to be bullied by larger clowders, were found strolling the other end of the promenade from Point Panic. All in total, 86 were counted of which only five were without a notched ear. An ear notch indicates sterilization and represents years of diligent trapping and neutering – an impressive undertaking for a loosely organized band of caregivers who have done so much more than simply feeding Free-Roaming cats. A team of about five caregivers regularly feed these cats – each tending to a different feline family. All of these people defy the stereotype. Two are physicians. One is a university professor. And another is a psychologist. One was frequent visitor to the Children’s Discovery Center, she and her young daughter befriended a cat caregiver named Ginger who passed away. In support of this partnership between a land manager and cat lovers, Hawaiian Humane has offered to sterilize any cats at Waterfront Park at no cost. The organization will foster kittens and adopt those that are healthy and friendly. In addition, the Society urged HCDA to install surveillance cameras to prevent the unfathomable. “Abandoning cats to a park is a crime that could result in jail time,” says Society Public Policy Advocate Stephanie
Kendrick. “People have already been prosecuted for this offense and there should be zero tolerance for anyone who dumps a cat in a park.” HCDA has set up a system to work collaboratively with caregivers, establishing feeding stations, controlling waste and supporting sterilization. A formal agreement is in place between the land management and volunteers. Both sides are committed to reducing the population with nonlethal measures and know through patience and perseverance that it will happen. “Whether it’s homeless people or homeless animals, we can find humane solutions if we work together,” says Lindsey Doi of HCDA of its partnership with Hawaiian Humane and colony caregivers.
WELCOMING ALL As Oahuâ€™s only open-admission shelter, the Hawaiian Humane Society believes there must be a place where all animals are welcome. With nearly 70 animals arriving daily, the first goal is to reunite lost pets with their owners. Reports of missing pets or found animals totaled 3,486 this fiscal year and the Society successfully reunited 2,624 families. Reunion efforts were supported by education campaigns to promote the value of identification. A total of 5,638 dogs were licensed and 17,776 pets were microchipped through promotions and partnerships with local veterinarians. The facts and figures are much more than numbers. They represent lives that were transformed and stories that were changed with the help of supporters in just one year.

C R E AT I N G C O M P A S S I O N AT E COMMUNITIES THROUGH THE N E X T G E N E R AT I O N The Hawaiian Humane Society believes anyone can be an animal welfare champion, whether keiki or adult, and that strength in knowledge starts in the classroom. The Society’s education team regularly visits schools and youth/community organizations and is a presence at community events islandwide, encouraging Oahu’s residents to be involved in helping the animals in their neighborhoods and promoting compassion toward all animals. Educators and community leaders have been introduced to the Society’s varied curriculum and learning opportunities, all of which empower better care of animals within humane lessons. Intensive community work in Oahu’s school system and community-based youth programs continued with the Society’s annual contests and teen programs, engaging students with lessons about responsible pet ownership and introducing them to the world of animal welfare.
Inspired by the Society’s education team, students at Waianae High School wanted to be more involved in helping to teach their community how to be responsible pet owners. Hearing about Hawaiian Humane Society’s Pet Kokua, an outreach event that provides free microchips, spay/neuter certificates and free pet food, the high schoolers knew they had to be a part of it. “We’re thankful for the opportunity the Hawaiian Humane Society has given the students to be responsible for providing the public with information,” said Kat Muranaka, Education Academy teacher at Waianae High School. “There have been many ‘teachable moments’ thanks to the Society’s trust and support.” Tomorrow’s humane leaders are in Oahu’s schools and communities, and it is Hawaiian Humane’s goal to inspire compassionate, confident leaders who will care for their own animals and animals within their reach.
