TURNING POINT A time at which a decisive change in a situation occurs, especially one with beneficial results.


our mission To promote the human-animal bond and the humane treatment of all animals.

our values Reconciling the needs of animals and people, Hawaiian Humane Society creates results by caring for animals, working inspirationally and effectively with people, and providing responsible stewardship of resources. The organization seeks to create a humane community by instilling compassion for all animals and inspiring others to advance its mission.

your humane society The Hawaiian Humane Society is an independent, nonprofit organization that helps Hawaii’s animals and people. Founded in 1883, it is one of the nation’s oldest humane organizations and is Hawaii’s second oldest charity.




July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016 Amidst wet concrete and hard hats, this year was marked by construction and a changing landscape as we laid the foundation for a new era for animals who come to us in need. For a year, we have lived in the dust of our own reinvention as we moved closer to welcoming a new veterinary clinic and admissions center, as well as animal housing that speaks to the needs of those with no voice. Our vision includes a second cat house, dog houses and more places and spaces designed from the viewpoint of what animals see, hear and experience. And most of all, what they need.

IT’S SO CLOSE WE CAN ALMOST TASTE IT Opened in spring 2016, the new group housing for dogs with a shared play yard allows dogs time together or alone as they wish. The all-new veterinary clinic, admissions center and new housing for animals are set to open before 2017.


PET KOKUA HELPS WAIANAE COAST ANIMALS Hawaiian Humane Society kicked off summer 2016 with a full day of activities aimed to help pets of the area. Free animal services included wellness checks, nail trims, microchipping, spay/neuter, veterinary advice, as well as games and fun. The Society shared stories of rescues and taught pet owners what to do to ensure their companion animals are happy and healthy island pets. Special thanks to VCA Animal Hospitals, Apple and Windward Veterinary Technician School for their support to make this event a win for Waianae.


HEALING THE HEART WHEN THE BOND BREAKS When Hawaiian Humane Society’s President & CEO Pamela Burns noticed an older gentleman with a white beard at the shelter looking distressed, she was immediately drawn to help. David was a homeless war veteran who was recently discharged from Tripler Hospital and wanted to pick up his dog, Lady Gaga. The Society’s emergency foster program had provided temporary care while he was hospitalized. With grins, hugs and tail wags, the two were joyfully reunited that morning. Nothing in the world could break the bond between those two. Months later Pamela was reviewing requests for specialty medical services for animals that were admitted to the shelter. A dog named Lady Gaga was suffering from a broken hip and in urgent need of surgery. Her heart sank. How many dogs could possibly have the same name as David’s? After some research, she found that this was indeed the same dog. It was a rainy night in Moiliili in September 2015 when David attempted to cross the road in his wheelchair with Lady Gaga in his lap. As they rolled out on to the rain-soaked street, a driver emerged from a parking lot and hit the two. David was whisked away by ambulance and Lady was brought to the Hawaiian Humane Society. Once again, the two were forced to part ways. Lady did get the surgery that she needed thanks to Max’s Fund that provides specialized medical services. She was slowly recovering in foster care and Pamela believed that David would want to know. She had witnessed the bond between the two and if he could see that Lady was on the road to recovery perhaps he would be too. So she began the search to find him. David was at Queen’s Medical Center and now a quadriplegic who could no longer breathe on his own. At David’s request and with special permission from the hospital, Lady was once again on her way to reunite with the man she loved.


As Lady entered, the hospital room filled with emotion as the two gazed upon each other. Pamela brought Lady close so David could see and feel her. His face was now the only area on his body where he could feel anything at all. With tears streaming, he said in a hoarse whisper, “This is the happiest moment of my life, to be able to see her again.� Unable to use his hands and arms, David lamented that he could no longer stroke her fur and the best he could do was whisper farewell to his love. David knew that he could no longer care for Lady and she has since been adopted by a loving family. David was relocated to a medical facility on the mainland to be near family. The bond between people and pets can break in tragic ways and often through no fault of owner or animal. The Hawaiian Humane Society believes that its role is to be there for both people and animals in transition.


TEAMING TOGETHER ON HOMELESSNESS “I’d rather live on the sidewalk than to enter a shelter without my pet. He’s all I have.” It’s a sentiment that Hawaiian Humane Society’s outreach workers hear over and over again. While the team works with homeless pet owners islandwide, this year’s outreach focused on encampments in Kakaako, Keehi Lagoon and under the Nimitz viaduct. Armed with an arsenal of supplies from leashes to pet food, the Humane Society teaches about responsible pet ownership and offers pet identification and sterilization. Most importantly, they urge the homeless to start thinking about moving into a system of care that organizations such as The Institute for Human Services (IHS) offer. A “no pets allowed” policy at many shelters is giving way to a more liberal philosophy that welcomes people to come as they are. That means with pets in tow at IHS’ Hale Mauliola Housing Navigation Center. It’s a provocative strategy as a common denominator endemic to the homeless is their struggle with a sense of belonging. Turning lives around is possible when help embraces pets as family and is absent of judgment.


Dami Lobario, who moved into the housing navigation center in January 2016, felt a weight lift off her shoulders when she learned about the pet policy. Dami and Diesel, her 5-year-old dog, have lived together near the beach and in a van since 2011. “I was so worried about leaving my dog alone that I couldn’t go to job interviews and I couldn’t find housing that would allow him,” Dami said. “I would rather stay homeless than give him up.” In support of shelters that welcome pets, the Hawaiian Humane Society provides vaccinations, microchips, a health exam and advice to pet parents who are entering IHS housing. After moving to the shelter, Dami has made great progress in her life. She has reconnected with her family on the mainland and has since moved there with Diesel. Partnerships are making great things possible, according to Kimo Carvalho, IHS Director of Community Relations. “We couldn’t do this without the support of the Hawaiian Humane Society that gives so generously of their veterinary services and guidance on pets in housing.”

Dami Lobario was able to move into The Institute for Human Services Hale Mauliola Housing Navigation Center on Sand Island with her dog Diesel.


TURNING TOWARD PEOPLE IN NEED The cornerstone of a truly humane community is compassion. That extends equally to both animals and people. The Society’s outreach programs provide a warm hand or a furry paw to those who need one.

FALLING IN LOVE ON THE JOB The Hawaiian Humane Society’s humane investigators help so many in need due to extensive and specialized training that includes compassionate professionalism. It’s a skill, also used by first responders and health care workers, that helps them succeed in their role without becoming personally involved. Yet at times, there are those special cases that tug at the heart so emphatically that getting personal just can’t be avoided. In May 2015, Humane Investigator Kevin Nakagami headed to Waianae to follow up on a cruelty tip. Approaching the property, he saw a severely emaciated dog named Nalu chained outside. This wasn’t just a skinny dog. Nalu was so thin he was starving to death at 30 pounds, less than half of his ideal weight. He suffered from many maladies. Covered in sores, he was anemic from a tick infestation and his blackened skin was exposed where much of his hair was missing. To effectively counsel a pet owner requires emotional discipline and powerful persuasion. After a long talk about the care and nutrition that a dog needs to be healthy and happy, the owner realized that Nalu deserved a better life and gave him up. He was brought to the shelter and handed over to the veterinary staff for care. Officer Kevin was on to the next call of duty. Yet he found that his thoughts kept trailing back to a defining moment that he and Nalu shared. As he was lifted away from his suffering and into the rescue truck, Nalu, who felt like a limp bag of skin and bones in Kevin’s arms, released an audible and profound sigh. And in that moment when their gaze connected, hope filled Nalu’s large brown eyes. Life was about to change for both of them. Nalu’s health issues were many and complicated, including deadly heartworms. The Society’s veterinary team advised that he might not make it. For several nights, Kevin visited Nalu in his kennel. It became a routine. With each visit, Nalu would perk up, wag his tail with joy and lay at Kevin’s feet. Nalu had fallen in love with his rescuer and the feelings were mutual. Kevin offered to nurse Nalu through his rehabilitation and during his recovery, the two formed a bond that strengthened with each day. After a month of intensive home care, Nalu was adopted by Kevin and the two now share their lives together as a family.


RESTORING COMMUNITY SERVICES This year the City & County of Honolulu announced that its partnership with the Hawaiian Humane Society would expand to resume enforcing a number of animalrelated laws, picking up stray dogs, and responding to barking and dangerous dog complaints. The community rejoiced as so many critical animal services had been halted when the City & County could

no longer fund these services for nearly two years since August 2013. By December 2015, Hawaiian Humane was workforce ready and in neighborhoods to resolve animal-related issues. Its specialized team of officers are trained in animal welfare, the safe and humane handling and care of animals, law enforcement, casework and mediation.

ending cruelty together The Hawaiian Humane Society’s rescue and response team handles thousands of cases every year where animals are in distress. Sometimes animals are abandoned. In other situations, they are victims of cruelty and neglect.

A VAN BECOMES A DUMPSTER FOR DOGS Its pretty pink exterior couldn’t mask the ugliness inside when humane investigators responded to a West Oahu cruelty tip. A squatter and his four dogs had taken up residence in a van on an abandoned property. Inside the van, officers found a heap of trash and feces. Covered in fleas and ticks, the dogs suffered from skin conditions and hair loss due to malnutrition. The owner gave the animals to the Hawaiian Humane Society so that they could find them a better home.


NEVER TURNING ANY AWAY There is only one Oahu shelter that will not turn any animal away. With nearly 70 animals arriving daily, the Hawaiian Humane Society’s first goal is to reunite pets with their owners. Reports of missing pets and found animals totaled 4,308 cases. Reunions reached 2,515 this year. Those efforts were supported by education campaigns to promote the power of identification.

A total of 5,301 dogs were licensed and 2,700 pets were microchipped through promotions and partnerships. The next goal is to find animals new homes, which continues to require intensive mobilization and creative promotions. Nearly 485 events were held islandwide through partnerships with seven Petco stores and PetSmart in Mililani.

welcoming all 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. A total of 25,074 animals were admitted to the Hawaiian Humane Society this year – a seemingly impossible number to visualize. That’s about half of the number of seats in Aloha Stadium.

TURNING LIVES AROUND Bred and abandoned. That was precisely the situation in which the Hawaiian Humane Society found 29 dogs in at a North Shore home in October 2015. Left to survive in their own filth, with no food and water, these animals caught their first glimmer of hope when neighbors could no longer ignore their howls for help. These Haleiwa dogs were bred for profit with their puppies sold on Craigslist. The dogs were rescued, treated for medical conditions and placed with foster families. “One of the dogs from the case, Fable, would hide in his cage and just would not come out,” recalls foster care volunteer Kanoe Hansen. “So I decided that every day I would go in his kennel to hold and pet him. These dogs were so broken. My heart just goes out to them.” The Society fought for ownership of the animals in court and won. Most were adopted by foster care providers who had championed their rehabilitation. As for the several who remained, they were brought to an event at a local Petco where a crowd of more than 200 prospective pet parents who heard of their plight were eager to give them a second chance at love. 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.

creating families through adoption Imagine if an animal sat in every seat at the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena. That’s about how many animals found new homes this year thanks to the Hawaiian Humane Society and its supporters. Partners such as petco drive adoptions of Humane Society cats in most of its stores and host dog adoption events every weekend.

PREVENTING LITTERS REDUCES HOMELESSNESS A total of 7,997 puppies and kittens were brought to the Hawaiian Humane Society. Wide-eyed and whimpering, these vulnerable little lives come to the shelter in a variety of scenarios. They arrive in boxes and crates or on make-shift leashes. Some are plucked off the streets, found under bushes or on beaches. And many - especially puppies - are accidental litters in which pet owners did not have the time or money to sterilize the parents. This year, a total of 8,347 sterilizations were performed at the Society. That’s 22 sterilizations a day. This issue is greater than one organization can solve alone. It requires animal lovers to help get more cats and dogs sterilized. Mahalo to these community veterinarians who volunteered their time to help the Humane Society’s two staff veterinarians Dr. Aleisha Swartz and Dr. Carlene Takushi: Dr. Wendy Asato, Dr. Carolyn Naun and Dr. Joe Herzog.

CHANGE STARTS IN THE CLASSROOM The Hawaiian Humane Society’s goal for youth is to cultivate compassionate and confident leaders in animal welfare who use their influence to transform their neighborhoods into communities where humane values are a hallmark. The Society’s education team continues to move toward its goal of reaching every student in Oahu’s public schools. Recruiting teachers to embrace the mission has been no easy undertaking. Through industrious and inspirational outreach, the Society’s education team has held


leadership gatherings in school districts islandwide. Teachers, vice principals and youth group leaders have been introduced to the Society’s learning opportunities and how to integrate humane lessons into their teaching programs from language arts, science, math, theater and more. The long-term and cumulative effect of these initiatives will create the groundswell for more compassionate communities and empowerment so that all take better care of their own animals and animals within their reach.

A CALL FOR COMPASSION IN CONSERVATION AT THE LEGISLATURE Cats were clearly targeted with a proposal at the 2016 State Legislature by the Hawaii State Department of Land and Natural Resources. The intended purpose was to ban the feeding of cats, condemning them to death by starvation. It also aimed to criminalize those who feed them. Advocates, including cat colony caregivers and animal welfare organizations, rallied in opposition to the proposal. The bill was successfully defeated. The Hawaiian Humane Society believes that all animals, regardless of species, must be treated humanely. All animals feel pain and suffer. A value system in which animals are classified as native, introduced, injurious or invasive creates a hierarchy that requires the suffering of certain animals to protect others. There are more humane and compassionate solutions: enforcing existing laws, teaching owners to keep their cats indoors, increasing education and reducing cat colonies by employing a strategy of trap, neuter, return and manage. These alternatives have proven to work elsewhere. For any method to be successful, cooperation between landowners, conservationists and responsible cat colony caregivers is essential. If winners and losers are going to be picked among species, the community must be mindful of the ethical implications of these choices and of the methods selected to carry them out.

HAWAII GETS TOUGHER ON ANIMAL ABANDONMENT A state law forbids people to abandon animals. Too often the Hawaiian Humane Society investigates stories of disgruntled neighbors, businesses and even community associations trapping and dumping cats far away from familiar surroundings. In one of many similar calls for help, a frantic woman reported that three of her cats were missing over a period of a few days. Police determined that a neighbor had trapped and dumped them miles away. They were left to fend for themselves and never found again. Hawaiian Humane Society charged the man with abandonment.


While this practice has always been illegal, the law was levied to increase the fine from a $50 minimum to $2,000 maximum per animal if convicted. The Society urged for this change, but the reality is that abandonment is a crime that’s tough to catch and harder to prove. It has never been more important for cats to be kept indoors where they will live safer, healthier and happier lives.

COMMISSIONED STUDY ON CATS This year the Hawaiian Humane Society commissioned an islandwide study that included a focus on felines. Seventeen percent of Oahu’s people are feeding cats that they don’t consider their own. In 2012, it was determined that more than one third of those feeding cats are feeding six or more animals. About 60 percent of these cats are being fed at least a few times a week if not daily. What all this means is that there is a great need for accessible and affordable spay/neuter services so that citizens can take the next step, which is to ensure that the cats do not reproduce. The Society sterilized a total of 2,883 free-roaming cats this year and ran a $5 spay/neuter special for most of the year. Support from donors, who underwrote the cost of the surgery expense, made this possible.



VOLUNTEERS MOVE THE MISSION 300. That’s how many volunteers it takes to produce PetWalk, the only time people and their pets can parade through Magic Island. 485. That’s how many adoptions events were held all across the island this year. None of these feats would be possible without volunteers. Events play a significant role in the Hawaiian Humane Society’s ambition to celebrate the human-animal bond and become more a part of Oahu’s neighborhoods. Volunteers ensure that the mission has more momentum than ever before and are making possible new innovations such as the first pop up cat café. Fur and frappés were a winning combination when 50 volunteers teamed together with caffeine in hand to celebrate a love for cats. The event was held at Mori at Ward Warehouse and featured a fabulous line up of felines. The feline frenzy proved to be such a hit that a line stretched the length of the shopping plaza. People waited for hours to join the fun. Volunteers play an essential role on campus too. Every day about 30 volunteers assist in so many ways: grooming cats, walking dogs and assisting visitors to the shelter.

PLEASE JOIN ME IN MAKING A DIFFERENCE FOR ANIMALS When I first met Summer in 2002, she was in need of a family so I decided to adopt her. She was my first dog and I instantly experienced the joy animals bring to our lives. At the same time I understood how vulnerable an animal can be. I realized at that moment that we have a great responsibility to be their voices and their advocates, and decided to find an organization doing good work on behalf of the animals in our community. That led me to the Hawaiian Humane Society. The more I learned about the wonderful work this organization does, ranging from rescues, adoptions, advocacy, education and most importantly - its policy of never turning an animal away, the more I realized that I needed to do everything I could to help this organization that shared my values. The Hawaiian Humane Society is truly the safety net for homeless animals on Oahu, and I hate to imagine what would happen if they weren’t here. Today, as the chair of its Board of Directors, I see up close just how much this organization accomplishes every day and the ambitious projects on the horizon. This includes a West Oahu campus in Hoopili, a new development in Ewa, and increased access to low-fee spay/neuter services in the near future. I see the commitment and dedication of the people involved with the organization, the Board, management, staff, donors, and volunteers. I know there are many, like me, who treasure their pets and want to make a lasting difference on behalf of all animals in Hawaii. I ask you to please join me in support of the Hawaiian Humane Society, and consider a place in your estate plans for the Society, ensuring that their work will continue to be available to future generations of animals and their people. My commitment to the Hawaiian Humane Society is unwavering and only strengthened with time and experience. This organization truly does lifesaving and life-changing work, and makes miracles happen for animals and their people. I feel blessed to be a part of it. There is no greater joy than knowing that you can make a difference. The Ginny Tiu Fund was established in 2015 to help rescue and protect animals and to address animal overpopulation by supporting sterilization programs. By notifying us of her planned gift, Ginny became a member of the Helen Kinau Wilder Legacy Society. Summer is still showered with love along with Ginny’s many other rescued pets. Ginny is pictured here with Shadow, who recently found his forever home with help from the Hawaiian Humane Society.
