In the footsteps of our founders When the Hawaiian Humane Society was founded in 1883, animal lovers came together as a small group of committed citizens determined to make Oahu a better place for animals. These early pioneers included King Kalakaua, Helen Kinau Wilder and other great leaders of our cause. They believed that they could spark a movement that would transform people’s relationship with animals. When you visit our busy campus in Moiliili, that spirit of compassion, care and charity has endured. A spirit that has been handed down from generation to generation by exceptional leaders. It can be found in the vibrant day-to-day life of our work. These values are what define us. They differentiate us. They inspire us. It is up to all of us to carry this vision forward. Our founders have given us ambition for our future which is our responsibility to realize. This is the foundation from which we plan to serve the next generation of animals and people to come. As we look ahead, we see a great need for expanded capacity, upgraded facilities and a stronger presence in west Oahu. While our board of directors pursues gifts for capital improvements towards those goals, we are so grateful for all the victories – both large and small – that you made possible.

What would you do if 85
animals arrived on your doorstep every day of the year? Every day 75 employees rise to this challenge united by a common goal.
Two out of three homes have a pet. Nearly 1 million people live on Oahu. There is just one open-admission shelter. In times of uncertainty, we offer hope. For nearly 130 years, the Hawaiian Humane Society has served as a focal point of Oahuâ€™s community. In its early days, the Society not only helped animals, but supported unwed mothers and provided adoption services for children as well as cared for those with mental illness. Our mission of creating a humane society is a love story about people for animals and animals for people.
Homeless, never hopeless â€œA child and her parents came in with their beloved cat and all her toys that they could no longer keep. The little girl looked up into my eyes and asked that we find her cat a family who could love her as much as they do.â€? Tina Kimmons, Humane Society Animal Care Manager
The Hawaiian Humane Society accepts all animals brought to us for help regardless of health, age, behavior or species. This includes cats, dogs, rabbits and turtles, as well as exotic animals. It also includes the happy and healthy, the sick and suffering. We ensure that thousands of homeless animals are kept from roaming the streets, struggling to survive. We ensure that pets do not become neglected when people do not have the time or means to care for them. More than 300 animals are in residence at the Humane Society on any given day.
27,994 Given Shelter & Care Cats 14,431 Dogs 10,180 Small Animals
Tonight she will sleep inside “Once orphaned, these animals are now new members of a family and I thank these people for opening their hearts and homes to adoption. There’s nothing like the warmth and tenderness that animals and people can share.” Dr. Eric Ako, DVM The Pet Doctor
Animals remain with the Society to receive love and care as long as it takes to find a new family. This is no easy feat. Saving more lives requires creativity and the conviction to find these animals homes. That work includes shelter adoptions nearly every day of the year and six adoption events weekly through pet supply stores that are committed to ending homelessness. PetSmart Mililani and PETCO Ewa Beach came aboard this year as new partners in adoption. In total, efforts grew to include nine partners and more than 250 island-wide events from west Oahu to the windward side. Mike McKenna’s Windward Ford has helped us find new families for nearly 250 animals. Our $65 adoption fee for cats and dogs does not even begin to cover the costs of more than $250 in services and care provided for each animal. Donations enabled the Society to find families for 8,124 orphaned animals.
8,124 Adoptions Cats 2,842 Dogs 4,569 Small Animals
True love was worth the wait It’s a fact. Small, fluffy dogs that run to the front of their kennel to paw at potential adopters are by far the fastest to find new families. Nestle was not blessed with such charisma. Yet, adoptions advisors knew she was the most charming pup of the pack. Her sweet demeanor and gentle, affectionate ways were best appreciated by those who really knew her. Nestle arrived at the Society shy and suffering. She had been chained for so long in a collar so tight that it embedded into her neck.
Nestle was ane with the Hum arly Society for ne a year.
Living in a shelter is no substitute for family life so the adoptions team tried to showcase her in many creative ways. Months passed and Nestle still remained either at the shelter or in foster care. In September 2012, the adoptions team found the perfect match for Nestle – a warm-hearted family in Pearl City where she now enjoys leisurely hikes and getting her nose into just about anything.
Foster a new beginning Honolulu Veterinary Society selected the Hawaiian Humane Society for its 2012 Best Friends Award in recognition of its foster care program in which about 125 animals are nurtured in volunteers’ homes on any given day.
1,880 Animals Fostered Dogs & Puppies
The Society’s goal is to continue to help an ever-increasing Cats & Kittens 927 number of animals with treatable medical and behavioral issues so that as many as possible can get their best start. 154 Small Animals There is such limited space and resources at the shelter for extended rehabilitation and intensive care for the young and fragile, as well as the injured or sick. A massive mobilization is underway on a daily basis and requires expert ability to pair an animal’s needs with a volunteer who can meet them. Quick and thoughtful decisions must be made to accommodate 85 animals arriving daily to the shelter. Foster care helps orphaned animals, as well as animals with families. The Humane Society also offers temporary emergency fostering to those hospitalized, victims of domestic violence and deployed military. Mana was treated for severe mange.
Lost pets never lose hope Microchip Madness month in July provided new ID to more than 3,400 animals this year. We maintain our own microchip database for Oahuâ€™s animals. More than 22,000 new records were added to our database this year. An astounding 18,269 dogs and cats arrived as strays this year, which represents about 75 percent of dog and cat admissions. Many of those may have been lost.

A family reunion All it took was a single microchip and eight years of separation finally came to an end. Thatâ€™s what happened to the Mahi family, who were reunited with their dog Snoopy after he was found in the streets of Waianae by a Humane Society investigator. Eight years ago, Snoopy went missing after the Mahis moved into their new home in Waikele. The family searched for him and put up flyers to no avail. His muzzle had grayed during those long years apart but his memories of his family never faded. As soon as he got home, he rolled on his back for a belly rub from his long lost parents.
“Often it takes great efforts that happen under just the right circumstances: a call from a concerned citizen, swift and meticulous case work, partnership with the police, a determined prosecution and a judge who is willing to ensure justice.” Keoni Vaughn, Humane Society Director of Operations
A phone call changed an animal’s life Sometimes the Humane Society’s rescue work makes headlines. For every case that is featured in the news, there are thousands of stories that are never told. This year, our humane investigators responded to 11,847 calls for service. Waimanalo puppy mill case concludes Long after the February 2011 rescue of 230 dogs who were part of a commercial breeding business, the court drama continued. In December 2012, the Courts sentenced David Lee Becker to a total of six months jail time, which began when he was extradited from Las Vegas to Honolulu. The court credited Becker with time already served. In truth, corporate structures are designed to protect company officials and their staff from being personally accountable for crimes. In this case, we do not believe justice prevailed for the animals as the officers of Bradley International are free to continue breeding, selling and owning dogs. Hawaii Kai Park & Ride cat shooting In December 2012, reports of cats being shot at the Park & Ride resulted in an extensive investigation and an offer of more than $4,000 in rewards. Despite canvassing, policing the area and interviewing witnesses, the case went cold. The growing cat population at the Park & Ride continues to be a concern for animals, residents and businesses in this area.
Teen tipster ends a Mililani dog’s suffering In January 2013, a Mililani teenager reported his concern about a friend’s family dog in which the pet’s owners claim to have “forgotten” about him in their back yard for months. The owner was treating his dog with a concoction of over-the-counter medication for humans while the animal suffered. The owner was sentenced with fines, court fees, community service and prohibited from owning animals for a year. Pursuit of justice for a Haleiwa dog slain by owner In June 2013, a Haleiwa woman claimed she was “disciplining her dog.” The dog died from repeated stab wounds and mutilation. The owner was arrested for felony animal cruelty and her case is proceeding through the justice system. Pomeranians rescued in Halawa In May 2013, the Society investigated a tip about breeding dogs living in deplorable conditions in Halawa. As a result, 43 Pomeranians, mostly aged with varying health issues, were surrendered. During a two-day adoption event more than 750 prospective adopters sought to adopt these animals. A few people even spent the night to be first at the door.

Outdoor cat issues continue to escalate Seventeen percent of Oahu residents feed neighborhood cats that they donâ€™t consider their own. Seventy percent of these feline caregivers donâ€™t know if the cats they feed are sterilized. The Humane Societyâ€™s reduced-rate sterilization service for feral cats is offered year-round and is made possible through the generosity of donors. Our community needs more people who are willing to be caregivers and support a strategy of trap, neuter, return and manage so that feral cats can be sterilized, cared for and live out their natural lives. This strategy works to humanely reduce the population, but requires tremendous resources to accomplish. Free-roaming outdoor cats continue to become a growing concern amongst Oahu residents. Colonies are typically found in urban areas close to feeding sources. Sadly, large groups in highly visible areas can lead well-intentioned but misguided people to abandon more cats in these areas. Large concentrated populations can lead people to devalue the animals and perceive them as pests who become targets of cruelty. Successfully reducing populations over time can happen. Feeding establishes a bond of trust so that cats can be trapped for sterilization with kittens removed to allow for natural attrition of the population. These caregivers operate independently and utilize the low-cost sterilization and humane traps of nonprofit organizations such as the Humane Society. The majority of female cats in a colony must be sterilized to be effective. Collectively on Oahu it is estimated that about 6,000 community cat sterilizations are performed annually at a cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars. We have sterilized more than 10,000 feral cats since 2005, which has prevented hundreds of thousands of unwanted animals in our community.
Spay and neuter saves lives Pet overpopulation is a result of too many litters and a lack of affordable and accessible spay and neuter options. The Humane Society sees far too many homeless animals in need. It is a wellestablished fact that unneutered cats and dogs and their offspring can proliferate at an alarming rate in a lifetime. That is why 8,290 animals were sterilized at the Humane Society last year. We are so grateful for our volunteer veterinarians who assist us with spay and neuter surgeries: Dr. Wendy Asato, Dr. Carolyn Naun, Dr. Jill Yoshicedo and Dr. Aaron Raney.
8,290 Sterilizations Adoption Animals
Veterinarians rally for â€œNeuter Nowâ€? Since 1986, our partnership with the City & County of Honolulu for the Neuter Now program has provided reduced-rate spay and neuter services for owned animals. This year 4,125 cats and dogs benefited from this program. This 70 percent increase from the year prior was made possible due to increased funding allocated by the county to support a year-round program. The Humane Society runs this program for the county for free as a public service.

“The Hawaiian Humane Society is a place for transformation. It’s where animals and people come together to find their full potential.” Natalie Lukashevsky, Humane Society Volunteer Outreach Coordinator
Just a little time makes a big difference Our volunteers outnumber staff 10 to 1. They are an extension of our 75-member workforce and are our coworkers, our advocates and our ambassadors. Together they worked 132,922 hours. Some volunteers fight for the passage of stronger laws, while others prefer to lead pet-friendly hikes or comfort the grieving who have recently lost a pet. Some assist our veterinary team who perform hundreds of sterilization surgeries a week, while others prefer to walk dogs. Our volunteers are the life force of our organization. The Humane Society is also honored to be of service to volunteers who are rebuilding their personal lives. We work closely with those who are completing courtmandated service, parolees and “first to work” clients who are becoming productive contributors of society. This year these volunteers have given more than 1,000 hours collectively.
We believe in karma The staff of Fairmont Specialty took a break from their business routine to spend two days of service at the Humane Society. They helped erect new fencing, cleaned the shelter and learned about the many Society programs and services. Fairmont Specialty’s Executive Vice President Lloyd Chaffin believes that giving back is the greatest reward. Other companies that have devoted a day of service include: American Savings, Bank of Hawaii, Bonterra Solar, Neiman Marcus, Pono Pharmacuetical and Pac Rim Marketing.

Education and advocacy are the cornerstone of all that we do. It is those two unwavering values that drive our ambitions for the next generation of people and animals to come. Our greatest potential for success lies in empowering people to do more for animals in their own care and more for animals within their reach. Our youth education programs continue to grow exponentially. Our partnerships have expanded to include the YMCA and Kamaaina Kids â€“ allowing us to reach more youth more effectively.

Our outreach programs offer a helping hand when people need others who care. That is the spirit that defines our outreach services, whether itâ€™s bringing animals to hospice centers, providing pet food for the owner who just lost his job or grief counseling to help people through the loss of their pet.

Animals find justice at the 2013 legislature The Humane Society rallied advocates during several months of the 2013 legislative session. Governor Neil Abercrombie signed several animal protection bills into law during a ceremony at the Society. For crimes of cruelty, three new laws strengthened protection. One prohibits those convicted of first-degree cruelty from owning a pet. Another makes animal cruelty a felony crime when 10 or more pets are involved. A victim restitution law allows organizations such as the Humane Society to be compensated for expenses in caring for the abused involved in cruelty cases. Snares, conibears, steel-jawed traps, and foot- and leghold traps are now illegal in residential areas. Animals trapped in these bone-crushing traps have arrived at the Humane Society. In addition, cats and dogs captured in a snare or trap must now be reported to the Society. The County Prosecutorâ€™s Office led a valiant attempt to pass a dog breeding bill that would regulate commercial operations. This and previous legislative bills proposed in the last three consecutive years did not succeed. Hundreds of puppies are sold through the Internet and pet shops every day in Hawaii. All of these activities are unregulated. It is up to those who seek purebred puppies to find responsible breeders and ensure that they are not supporting sellers who put profit above the welfare of breeding animals.
Conference unites animal lovers Animal lovers, rescue groups, pet owners, policy makers and more attended the November 2012 animal summit. More than 100 people from across the state gathered to learn more about pet ownership and animal issues in Hawaii. Speaker Ken White, president and CEO of Peninsula Humane Society and SPCA in San Mateo, California, shared his experiences in working for and with a variety of animal welfare organizations. His presentation addressed the importance of collaboration in finding unique solutions to each community. Honolulu Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Janice Futa also gave a presentation on Hawaiiâ€™s history of animal crimes, as well as the evolution of animal-related laws, high-profile cases and changing attitudes toward animal offenses.
Prepared for the worst, hope for the best We are the official partner with state and county civil defense, HPD and firefighters to assist in all animal-related needs should a disaster strike. A major component is educating pet owners to have a plan in place for their animals. Our islandwide outreach to educate pet owners included: Navy and Army neighborhoods, Kailua, Ewa, Aiea and Kalihi to ensure pet owners know where their pet-friendly shelter is and what to do if disaster strikes. We continue to build a volunteer work force to manage pet-friendly shelters should the need arise. Along with 30 volunteers, the Humane Society participated in two state-led mock exercises.
Friends with a nose for news Our news partners help to elevate awareness about community issues and the needs of animals. Our long-standing friendship with KITV’s “Pets on Set” features animals seeking homes every other Thursday on the morning show. Honolulu Star-Advertiser features a pet for adoption every Tuesday. Clear Channel and Hawaii News Now sponsored the Society’s annual charity walk to drive awareness about our mission.
Donations drive the mission As an independent, nonprofit organization, our donors make miracles happen daily for the animals and people we serve. It costs $18,000 a day to run the Society’s 30 programs and services. Mahalo nui to our 20,000 donors and all our supporters who strengthened our ability to promote the human-animal bond and the humane treatment of animals this fiscal year.

A true story: The transformative power of animals Thank you for connecting me to the love of my life. My cat Safire saved my life. I was always a troubled teen. I have very bad depression. One day, I was over my head in issues. I was going to end it all. But Safire wouldn’t let me. She yowled and kept staring at me wide eyed. Like she knew I was about to take my life. In that moment, I realized how much she loved me. I put away the pills and laid down on my bed and she curled up on my stomach and wouldn’t move. When I woke she went crazy with affection, rubbing against me and purring louder. She refused to leave my side. My 14th birthday is next week. Without Safire, I would never have lived to see it. Thank you for leading me to my angel. I will always be grateful. – Letter received in June 2013
