JULY 1, 2017 - JUNE 30, 2018

At a meeting last July, I began my tenure as board chair. It would be the last meeting that our then-President and CEO Pamela Burns would attend. Though we talked many times on the phone over the next two months, little did I know that our meeting would be the last time I would see her face-to-face. Having been an innovator in animal welfare while at the helm of the Hawaiian Humane Society for 27 years, Pam was deeply respected and served as an inspiration for myself and so many others. When she passed in September 2017 there was a tremendous sense of loss but the Board of Directors came together with a strong commitment to continue the Society’s significant work. One of our most important tasks was the search for the person who would assume leadership of the organization and uphold the mission of the Society: to promote the human-animal bond and the humane treatment of all animals. Although the search was thorough, the board found that we didn’t need to look very far. For most of last year, prior to being appointed president and CEO of the Hawaiian Humane Society, Lisa Fowler was acting in that position. With her 13 years of experience in animal welfare as executive director at Hawaii Island Humane Society, along with her years as the Hawaiian Humane Society’s director of development and operations director, we found the best qualified person already on the job. It has been a real pleasure for me as chair to work with Lisa and the outstanding staff and volunteers she has assembled around her. The mission continues to move forward with new developments on the horizon. Toward the end of 2017, construction began on the high-volume, high-quality spay/neuter center. This important facility was established to help reduce the number of Free-Roaming cats living on Oahu and will be one component of a strategy to remedy the serious pet overpopulation issue on the island. We are also eagerly anticipating breaking ground on the Hawaiian Humane Society’s West Oahu campus in the next year. This organization and the community are fortunate to see in Lisa the continuation of such dedicated and inspiring leadership. Whether it is the rescue of more than 300 neglected dogs, the focus on the needs of the animal community, or the commitment to preparing and assisting in a natural disaster, we can be confident that Lisa’s vision and commitment will continue to advance the Society’s 135-year-old mission. Mahalo for all your support this past year, I look forward to seeing what the future brings.

Partnerships. Community. Ohana. No matter what you call it, there’s no denying the power of committed individuals united in a common goal. This report is more than a collection of statistics; it offers inspiring evidence of the passion and compassion in our community and our collective determination to improve the lives of animals in Hawaii. Our collaboration with others who share common goals plays a vital role in creating a more humane community. During the past year, cooperation between Humane Investigators, the Honolulu Police Department and the Honolulu Prosecutor’s Office resulted in jail time for two animal abusers. Our efforts with the Institute for Human Services provided opportunities for homeless individuals and their pets to find safe, permanent housing. Our long-standing relationship with the City & County of Honolulu ensures that the Hawaiian Humane Society continues to be the safety net for every animal in need and that no animal is ever turned away. We truly are fortunate to live in a community that places a high priority on animal welfare and is committed to supporting humane values. The shared vision of donors, staff and volunteers is a powerful force at our Moiliili campus and beyond. Mahalo to our donors and supporters who enable us to carry out our mission to create a more compassionate community for all. Mahalo,

Lisa Fowler President & CEO

One phone call

changed tulip ’ s path forever Tiny Tulip, a 7-pound terrier, was back at a private veterinary clinic for the fourth time with another serious injury. Clinic staff had grown increasingly concerned about the pattern of physical trauma suffered by the 3-year-old dog. This time, a call was made to the Hawaiian Humane Society and an investigation was opened. The Society learned that the harm Tulip suffered over the course of several months included broken ribs, a fractured pelvis and head trauma. Lack of care from her owners following her pelvic injuries resulted in a right rear leg amputation despite the veterinary staff doing all they could to help. The most recent incident, and the catalyst for the call, was severe head and internal organ trauma.

“We are thankful that our court system and our community recognize animal cruelty as a serious crime,” said Lisa Fowler, president and CEO of the Hawaiian Humane Society. “While we would like to see harsher penalties imposed on people who abuse defenseless animals, jail time remains rare in animal cruelty sentences and a conviction and jail time for Mr. Boos sends a strong message.” Tulip will require life-long specialized care as a result of the trauma she suffered. However, she is thriving in her new home and her joyful spirit continues to be an inspiration.

It was apparent to the Society’s humane investigators that Tulip’s injuries were intentional. The Society's team gathered enough evidence to substantiate animal cruelty and Tulip was taken into protective care. Humane investigators found additional evidence to prove that the young pup was a victim of abuse and neglect. Soon investigators learned that the abuse Tulip suffered was at the hands of her owner’s boyfriend, Steven Boos. Realizing the severity of the situation, Tulip’s owner relinquished custody to Hawaiian Humane where Tulip was able to begin her path to a new life. On June 22, 2018, Boos was charged with animal cruelty in the second degree and sentenced to 30 days in jail for the abuse Tulip endured. In addition, he was assessed a fine, ordered to do 50 hours of community service and required to serve a year’s probation, during which time he is prohibited from owning animals.

While Tulip is thriving in her new home, she will require life-long specialized care as a result of the injuries she sustained.

Working toward

a safer community for animals A resource to the community, Society humane investigators respond to reports of animal abuse, barking and dangerous dog complaints, chicken and fowl nuisance issues and more. Although they are deputized by the Honolulu Police Department and are trained in law enforcement and mediation; education is at the heart of the Hawaiian Humane Society’s field services team’s everyday work. Keeping animals safe and with their families is a priority for humane investigators who educate pet owners regarding proper animal care and animal-related laws to ensure the best outcomes for people and their pets. On any given day community members can spot the Society’s rescue vehicles traveling the island of Oahu. Ten Hawaiian Humane Society humane investigators traveled more than 138,000 miles to provide services islandwide seven days a week, responding to thousands of animal related cases last year.

Creating families

through adoption Thousands of families are created every year at the Hawaiian Humane Society. Some animals find new homes within hours of being made available for adoption. Others watch guests come and go for weeks before finding their new families. Milk Shake, a confident two-year-old feline, was a resident of the Hawaiian Humane Society for months. With his quirky antics and ginger good looks, he soon became a legendary guest of the cat house. Visitors were greeted by Milk Shake each day as he called out from his favorite perch requesting treats and attention. Despite his larger-than-life personality, it took time to find his person. Milk Shake’s unique persona made him famous on the Society’s Facebook page. Community members followed his story closely waiting in anticipation to hear that he’d been adopted. After five months of stealing the hearts of the Society’s staff, volunteers and online community, Milk Shake found his new home with the Karika-Anae family. Animals like Milk Shake stay at the Hawaiian Humane Society for as long as it takes to find a home. Because of the community’s support pets like Milk Shake have no time limit and come with a multitude of benefits, including spay/neuter surgery, microchips, vaccinations and a complimentary visit to a veterinarian.

Inspiring tomorrow's leaders trough education

Education has been at the foundation of the Hawaiian Humane Society’s mission since humane officers ventured out on horseback in the 19th century. Today, 135 years later, we continue to place a high priority on humane education in the community. The Society’s educational efforts reach students across the island to help create compassionate and confident community leaders. Hawaiian Humane educators make presentations and share curriculum with Oahu schools and community-based youth programs. Their work engages students through events, contests and teen programs and introduces students to animal welfare through lessons of empathy and compassion.

Finding strength in

the power of volunteers Daily tasks, events, rescues and more are all made possible by volunteers whose commitment to the human-animal bond ensures the Hawaiian Humane Society reaches and helps every animal in need. Whether it’s staffing off-site adoption and community events; opening their homes to foster animals in need; or pitching in with daily laundry, dog washing or assistance in the veterinary clinic, volunteers are the unsung heroes moving the mission of the Society forward. Without the gifts of their time and talent, the Society would not be able to do its life changing work.

co m m unity spay / neuter center

he l pin g reduce pet overpopu l ation Recognizing a need within the community the Society embarked on a journey to increase the availability of affordable spay/neuter services on Oahu. After extensive research and enlisting advice from experts from around the United States, Hawaiian Humane made a commitment to provide the critical services the community needs. On September 8, 2017, friends and supporters of Hawaiian Humane gathered as the Society broke ground on its high-quality, high-volume spay/neuter clinic. “Our specialized clinic reaffirms our long-standing commitment to reduce the number of homeless animals – particularly Free-Roaming cats,” said Lisa Fowler, president and CEO of the Hawaiian Humane Society. “This specialized clinic is the first of its kind in Hawaii and will serve as a community resource for reduced-fee cat and dog sterilization services.” The availability of affordable sterilization services is nationally recognized as a critical component in a multi-pronged approach to humanely reduce the number of cats on the landscape. Free-Roaming cats will be sterilized at reduced rates to community caregivers and the clinic will be a vital resource in helping to reduce the population of homeless cats on Oahu The Spay/Neuter Center will focus exclusively on sterilization services and will not provide any other veterinary care. “Our clinic will not replace the important relationship between pet owners and their private veterinarians," said Fowler. The Society’s clinic will have the capacity to perform approximately 8,000 spay/neuter surgeries annually.


Welcoming all

with open arms As Oahu’s only open-admission shelter, the Hawaiian Humane Society believes there must be a place where all animals are welcome. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the Society’s open admission policy represents a vital commitment to the prevention of animal abandonment, cruelty and suffering. As Oahu’s only shelter that welcomes all animals, Hawaiian Humane is truly the safety net for all animals in need without discrimination based on breed, age, health or temperament.

families When a 7-year-old shih tzu named Elly escaped through the front door, her owner Lindsey was frantic to find her. She filed a lost report with the Hawaiian Humane Society and enlisted family and friends to search for her beloved family member. But Lindsey’s confidence began to fade as the months passed with no sign of Elly. Lindsey was shocked when she was told a good Samaritan found the dog and brought her to the Hawaiian Humane Society to scan for a microchip. Thanks to the power of a microchip, the nine-month search ended. Lindsey cried tears of joy when Elly was placed back into her arms. As Oahu’s official lost and found, Society staff works to reunite lost pets like Elly with their families. It also educates the public about the critical role played by microchips and visible identification in helping lost pets find their way home.

Hawaiian Humane Society spay / neuter programs

The new spay/neuter clinic builds on the Society’s long-term commitment to reducing pet overpopulation, which is the result of too many animals and not enough homes. Sterilization is a means to curb pet overpopulation and prevent abandonment and suffering. The Hawaiian Humane Society has provided spay/neuter services to community members who manage Free-Roaming cat colonies for 25 years. In addition, animals made available for adoption are sterilized before heading to their new homes. The Society sterilized 8,414 animals at its campus last year – 23 animals per day. Mahalo to these veterinarians who volunteered their time to help the Society’s chief veterinarian Dr. Kasey Carter and staff veterinarian Dr. Carlene Takushi with spay/neuter surgeries: Wendy Asato, Joe Herzog, Jason Gray and Rajdeep Turna.

Community Spay/Neuter programs

The Hawaiian Humane Society and City and County of Honolulu pioneered Neuter Now, a low-fee pet sterilization program, in 1986 to provide the community with affordable spay/neuter services. In addition to the Neuter Now program, which assists with sterilization services for pet animals, the City and County of Honolulu created the Feline Fix pilot program in September 2017, specifically to provide low-fee sterilizations for Free-Roaming cats.

The two city programs serve as options for the community to access affordable spay/neuter services. The Hawaiian Humane Society administers both programs as part of its City animal services contract. Certificates are sold seven days a week at the Society’s campus, through its website and on weekdays at Satellite City Hall locations.
