A day in the life of a shelter veterinarian A day in the life of a Hawaiian Humane Society veterinarian is busy, challenging and rewarding. With an average of 70 animals daily welcomed into the Society’s care, and the addition of pet animals brought to the Community Spay/Neuter Center for surgery, the demand for care is enormous. Shelter medicine attracts a special breed of veterinarian with a deep love and respect for animals. Dr. Kasey Carter Chief Veterinarian Dr. Kasey’s love for animals began early on in his childhood. “I’ve always loved animals. Growing up we always had a lot of animals in my house. Even though we lived in Tuscon, Arizona, we had every kind of breed of dog you can imagine. We had skunks, pot-bellied pigs, rabbits, jerboas … even monkeys.”
(For those not in the know, jerboas are a long-legged rodent with large ears originally from the deserts of the Middle East, Asia and North Africa.) Originally an engineering student, Dr. Kasey discovered his true calling when he switched to veterinary science. Working at animal shelters while he was in vet school, he learned a lot about cat respiratory diseases and the unique challenges shelters face when treating and caring for animals. “Shelter medicine is different than small animal practice or emergency medicine, or specialties like internal medicine or cardiology. We see many more animals in the shelter and I feel like I am able to have more of an impact on the animals’ lives,” said Dr. Kasey.

or completing health checks. Surgery can include everything from eye surgery to dentistry to sterilization. The veterinarians also treat diseases including heart worm, skin issues, respiratory infections and other ailments daily. Then there are the days when unusual cases end up in the care of the Society’s veterinary team, such as a four-week-old kitten named Phoenix. Phoenix was rescued from a brush fire in West Oahu by a member of the Honolulu Fire Department, who immediately called the Hawaiian Humane Society for help. Phoenix’s whiskers had been singed off, his black and white fur was crispy and short and his paw pads were blistered. Dr. Kasey’s first concern was to figure out how much pain the little cat was in. After administering antibiotics and pain medication, Phoenix’s spirit seemed to perk up. Soon, his appetite rebounded and he was on his way to recuperating in a foster home. “Most of these animals don’t have owners or homes so we need to be their voice. When I leave at the end of the day, I’ve helped animals that really needed it and helped to alleviate animals’ suffering,” said Dr. Kasey.

Embarking on new beginnings New beginnings happen every day at the Hawaiian Humane Society. Every time a child takes home her first pet, a family chooses to foster a litter of kittens or a veterinarian tends to an injured dog or cat, it creates a new opportunity for animals to thrive and find happiness. It’s amazing to think of how many fresh starts have occurred right here, thanks to the employees and volunteers who have dedicated themselves to advancing Hawaiian Humane's mission. Over the past 136 years, countless animals have been rescued from homelessness or abuse; sheltered, fed and cared for. From these new beginnings, thousands go on to find happy endings in permanent homes with loving families. Now, it’s time for the Society to undergo a rebirth of its own. Any longstanding organization, especially one with an eye toward the future, should always be looking to improve and evolve its practices. As interim CEO, I’m proud to be a part of the change as the Society writes the next chapter in its story. Earlier this year, I was asked to come to the Hawaiian Humane Society, joining a team of experts to take a close look at the organization’s operations. We made several recommendations for expanding or updating the Society’s policies and procedures for euthanasia, assessing animals and working with those who need a little extra care or training prior to adoption. We worked closely with Hawaiian Humane's board of directors to lay the foundation for these changes. Some improvements have already been made to enhance the safety and well-being of our employees and the welfare of the animals in our care. Other changes will occur as part of a long-term approach

to animal care to ensure the Hawaiian Humane Society can continue to serve the community for years to come. I welcome the opportunity to be a part of this organization's evolution. I have had the great privilege of working in animal welfare and shelter management for 40 years. During that time, I’ve worked with many passionate and caring individuals, including many at the Society, to help improve the lives of animals. I look forward to working with the dedicated employees and volunteers during this exciting time of growth and transformation. As always, we are grateful to have the continued support of our donors, volunteers and the greater community. Mahalo to each and every one of you for standing by our cause and supporting our vision to create a brighter future for Hawaii’s animals.

In Our Backyard
Kitten season brings more mews kittens require round-the-clock care, including bottle feeding and potty training. When kittens are healthy Although and large enough, you may be tempted at about eight to rescue a litter of kittens you ďŹ nd in your weeks old or two backyard, keep in mind pounds, they may that their mother is likely nearby taking be sterilized and a break. adopted to new families.
As the days grow longer and warmer, felines are increasingly inspired to prowl for mates. And thus, kitten season begins. Although cats breed year round in Hawaii, the Hawaiian Humane Society receives an influx of kittens from late spring to early fall â€” sometimes hundreds each month. Community assistance is vital to protect these vulnerable animals, but if you discover kittens, sometimes the best thing you can do is nothing. Although intuition may scream to save apparently abandoned little bundles of fur, first watch and wait. Mothers can be gone up to eight hours at a time finding food, shelter, relieving themselves or taking a break. Unless they are in immediate danger, resist separating babies from their mother. She offers their best chance at a healthy life.
To support community members caring for kittens, the Society has assembled hundreds of kitten kits filled with items needed to nurture young kittens successfully. They include kitten milk replacement and nursing bottles. Kits are distributed at no cost to those interested in taking on the challenge of providing intensive care to unweaned cats.
Should you take on the responsibility of caring for kittens, be prepared to see the intervention through. Newborn

Did you know? The Free-Roaming cats who call Oahu home comprise a diverse population that includes lost or abandoned pets, pets allowed to roam and animals who are unsocialized to humans. Volunteer caregivers often provide outdoor cats with food and trap them for spay/neuter surgery so they cannot breed. An ear notch, on the left for male cats and the right for females, is a sign that a cat has been sterilized. Ear-notched cats who are socialized to humans are regularly available for adoption at the Society. Adopters can take pride in helping these friendly animals, who may have survived tough times, by giving them a loving home. All animals remain available for as long as it takes them to find a family.

Takushi has been helping animals for more than 25 years at the Hawaiian Humane Society. Her day is usually filled with spay/neuter surgeries for shelter animals, as well as caring for those with illnesses or injuries. She has been involved with many individual special cases that have recovered and been adopted. However, it’s the big rescues that she has been a part of that will always stick with her. “I’ve been a part of rescues that have had dozens of dogs that had been neglected to hundreds of dogs subjected to puppy breeding operations. And every time I think I’ve seen it all, another investigation comes along that astounds me.” Dr. Takushi was one of the main veterinarians working at the Society’s veterinary clinic for the Waimanalo dog rescue, which included more than 100 dogs saved from a puppy mill; and a case in Haleiwa, where over 30 dogs were left in a home with no food or water. No matter how many investigations she witnesses, it never
ceases to amaze her that people can treat animals so cruelly. “Although I’ve seen many shocking things in my decades-long career, it really makes it a lot easier to know that there are many good people out there,” said Dr. Takushi. “We really come together as a community to assist these animals and it’s one of the reasons why I’ve been at the Society this long – because we can and will help." Dr. Nikki McGreevey Community Spay/Neuter Center Veterinarian Dr. Nikki’s experience includes specialization in large animal and neonatal internal medicine, which has given her a broad knowledge in treating a wide variety of animals. Part of what she loves about her job at Hawaiian Humane is how it’s constantly evolving. “I always like to learn more. With veterinary medicine, there is always new research coming out and better ways to do things. I’m passionate about constantly improving upon the work that we do,” she said.
Dr. Nikki’s day begins at 7:30 am. She works primarily with clientowned animals on an appointment basis. “We have a certain number of appointments, and as they come in, I do a basic wellness exam, looking at their heart and lungs, gum color, making sure that overall they are healthy. If I find a heart murmur or respiratory disease, which is common in cats, I contact the owner with our recommendations,” she said. Following initial exams, Dr. Nikki usually conducts surgery at around 8:30 am and finishes at 1:30 pm. Each animal takes a couple of hours to wake up and the staff checks on them every 10-15 minutes before their owners pick them up at 3:30 pm. The Society’s veterinary team credits Hawaiian Humane’s many donors with making it possible for them to help so many animals. “Thanks to our generous donors, we are able to help the animals that come in and need it the most. We’re able to take care of them and get them back out to healthy and happy homes,” said Dr. Nikki.
Phoenix was found at the site of a brushﬁre in West Oahu. After treatment he went to a foster home to recuperate from his injuries.
Dr. Kasey emphasized that education and community engagement are as important to his team’s work as medicine.
“We’re the only openadmission animal shelter on Oahu so it’s really important that we work with and for the community. Our goal is to build awareness so people see the value in the health and well-being of animals. It’s being that voice for the animals who aren’t able to speak for themselves. It’s why we do the work that we do, because the good far outweighs any challenges we may face.” 4
Volunteer Highlight: Rosemarie Grigg Rosemarie Grigg is more than a volunteer at the Hawaiian Humane Society. As the facilitator for Hawaiian Humane's monthly Pet Loss Support Group, she’s a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold, and a comforting presence for individuals grieving the loss of a beloved companion animal. Rosemarie began running the group 20 years ago, after graduating from her UH master’s program in clinical psychology. “It was a perfect fit — it combined my clinical experience with my love of animals and my desire to help people,” she said.
Every October, Rosemarie Grigg, center, and the Pet Loss Support Group form a team for the Society’s PetWalk.
Animals have always been an important part of her life. As a young girl growing up in California, she wanted to be a veterinarian. She moved to Hawaii in 1989 with her mother and has adopted several pets from the Society over the years.
“There’s so much joy and love, and sadness as well. It’s a safe environment to share one’s story,” Rosemarie said.
Today, Rosemarie is a behavioral therapist who works with developmentally disabled individuals. She is a passionate volunteer who gives her time to several causes, including Friends of the Library and WINGS, an after-school group she founded for students with autism. Despite her busy schedule, she looks forward to her time at the Society every month.
Group members develop a special bond from their shared experience. Every October, Rosemarie and her group form a team for the Society’s PetWalk. In celebration of Rosemarie’s 20 years of volunteer service, previous group members put together a scrapbook filled with photos, stories and kind words to express their appreciation.
“It’s so gratifying and amazing,” she said. “To see people come together and be there for each other. That’s why I keep doing it and will keep doing it as long as I possibly can.”
Rosemarie considers herself lucky to do what she does. “It’s a beautiful thing, a witness to the love of animals,” she said of her group. “It doesn’t matter if the animal has fur, or feathers, or whatever. It’s all about the love.”
The group varies by month, welcoming new group members who have recently experienced a loss, as well as some who come back frequently to help others and continue their grieving process. They talk about the stages of grief, share photos, tell stories, cry and even laugh.
The Pet Loss Support Group meets on the first Tuesday of every month from 6:30 to 7:30 pm at the Hawaiian Humane Society administration building's reception area conference room. It is free and open to all members of the community. Call 356-2222 to attend.

Humane education is high priority The Hawaiian Humane Society’s education team partnered with Waianae High School students in April for the latest edition of Pet Kokua, a regular West Oahu event aimed at helping people and pets. Services offered at Pet Kokua included on-site pet microchipping by Windward Community College’s veterinary technician program, spay/ neuter certificates, food from the Hawaiian Humane Pet Food Bank, customized pet ID tags
and pet nail clipping by Mauka to Makai Mobile Pet Grooming. The Society’s humane investigators were also on site handing out leashes and collars and answering questions about their scope of work. About 200 people attended the event and were educated about animal welfare. Sixty-six pets were microchipped and 85 spay/neuter certificates and 824 pounds of pet food were distributed at the event.
The Hawaiian Humane Society’s annual Mission PAWsible contest wrapped up this spring with more than 200 entries from all over the island. Oahu middle and high school students submitted entries in the categories of creative writing, digital art and traditional art that reflected this year’s theme: Hawaiian Humane’s mission to promote the human-animal bond and humane treatment of all animals. Malisa L. from Kapolei High School chose to highlight pets being included as part of the family.
Thirteen new students joined the Teens4Animals Council, a group of teens representing public and private schools across the island that advocate for animals. In addition, four council members from last year’s 2018 – 2019 council have returned as part of the Teens4Animals Council leadership team, including our Council President Kylie Alarcon, Vice President Taylor Moniz, East Oahu Representative Michelle Matsumori-Kelly, and West Oahu Representative Manowai Lenchanko.
Rescued dogs get their day in court On an early October morning in 2016, Hawaiian Humane Society investigators and Honolulu Police Department oﬃcers waited outside of a property in Waianae. As daylight began its ritual infiltration of the dark, the pungent scent of animal waste permeated the air. Not even the salty scent of the nearby ocean could mask the aroma. It was just a hint of what they would see once the gates opened. The scene was shocking. Hundreds of dogs barked from desolate cages and makeshift shelters. Some were tethered on short chains. Others roamed free in the bare dirt. Surfaces throughout the property were covered with feces and urine. Many dogs were sick, others emaciated. Humane investigators would go on to rescue more than 300 dogs over two days. A puppy was discovered dead in a crate with its littermate and mother. An examination by the Society’s veterinarians would prove it to be the deadly parvovirus. Rodents and other vermin scurried freely in open bags of rotting food and around staff members as they began to load dogs into rescue vans.
Einstein, a Waianae Rescue dog, now enjoys spending days hiking with his family.
community events manager for the Hawaiian Humane Society. “The Society hopes that their stories will compel community members to report cruelty and negligence they see in their neighborhoods and prevent situations like this from reoccurring.”
Hundreds of people from the community volunteered to house and provide supplies for these dogs for six months before the Hawaiian Humane Society was granted ownership of the animals and allowed to find them permanent homes. More than 300 new families were created over the course of three months; a triumph for staff, volunteers and the dogs who forged unmistakable bonds.
Hawaiian Humane is grateful to the prosecutor’s oﬃce for its perseverance on this case, as well as the staff, volunteers and other community members who assisted with the rescue.
On May 9, 2019, David Lanny Moore was found guilty on 24 counts of animal cruelty in the second degree. His mother and the owner of the property, June Moore, was found guilty on one count of animal cruelty.
The Moores are scheduled to be sentenced on July 17. If you suspect animal cruelty or neglect in your neighborhood, please call 356-2250 or visit HawaiianHumane.org to file a report. All tips are investigated.
“We are pleased that the jury recognized the seriousness of the inhumane cruelty perpetuated on the animals in this circumstance,” said Suzy Tam, communications and

Are you ready for a disaster?
The 2018 hurricane season produced a few near misses for the state, including Hurricane Lane, which dumped more than 50 inches of rain on Hawaii Island, triggering flooding and landslides. Experts at the Central Pacific Hurricane Center warn that this season, which runs from June through November, will bring about warm waters like last year, providing fuel for strong storms. Pet owners should be prepared at all times in the event of a natural disaster or personal emergency. Know the location of your nearest shelter and have a pre-packed emergency kit for both your family and your pets. Remember, if it’s not safe for you, it’s not safe for your pet. Never leave your pet behind. For more information, RECORDS visit HawaiianHumane.org.
A disaster preparedness kit for your pet needs to include: RECORDS
A 14-day supply of food and water in sealed containers. Don’t forget to pack a can opener
Photographs of each pet
A crate or carrier with an attached ID card for each pet, large enough for him to stand up and turn around
A leash and collar with updated ID and license tags
Bedding, towels, toys, treats, food and water bowls
Vaccine records and other veterinary information
A pet ﬁrst aid kit
Medications, grooming supplies, cleaning supplies for crates/litter boxes
As designated first responders, the Hawaiian Humane Society partners with the City & County of Honolulu to assist in disaster planning and response. The Society supports the community and emergency shelters islandwide with volunteers and emergency supplies. For more information on becoming an emergency pet shelter volunteer, call 356-2216.
Loyal Friend: For the love of animals John Sawyer began donating to the Hawaiian Humane Society soon after moving to Hawaii in the 1970s. His support started around the time he adopted his first pet from the Society, a German Shepherd. He has remained a donor for decades because he believes in the Society’s commitment to caring for animals.
“I’m really an animal lover. I think it’s very sad to see animals who are not treated well,” he said.
Today, John and his wife Laurie have four pets, three of whom are Hawaiian Humane alum. There’s Kiki, who lived on the streets of Waikiki before making her way to the Society; Pi‘o, a poi dog with a brindle coat and huge ears; and Lulu, who stood out to him at the cat house because “I was looking for an older cat, because I’m old.” Their other cat, Brunswick, is a neighborhood stray who adopted them. John and his wife grew up with pets and raised their children with pets as well. Now, as a retired teacher, he enjoys passing that experience on to his grandchildren. His granddaughter was with him when they decided to add Lulu to the family. John has many fond memories of visiting the Society. He jokes that his wife won’t allow him to visit
more, because every time he does, he comes home with a new pet.
When his daughter found a stray kitten and nursed it back to health, John took the kitten to the Society’s Spay/Neuter Center. “I was so impressed with Dr. Kasey, the vet who performed the procedure,” he said. “He explained exactly what was going on and how to care for her. You could tell he cared deeply for the animals.” When his family adopted Pi‘o, the staff members suggested he bring Kiki in for a meet and greet to make sure the two dogs would get along well. “They had a grassy area set up where Kiki and Pi‘o could meet. I could tell right away they were going to be OK.” He makes it a point to support the Society after all these years because he cares about the work it does and the people who do it. “Hawaiian Humane Society does a really good job of taking care of stray animals. Every time I go, I’m very impressed with how it’s done. Everyone who works there is so nice — the people at the desk, the handlers, the vets. It’s a great place.”

Finding homes for felines In June, the Hawaiian Humane Society oﬃcially started its newest adoptions partnership with Hawaii Cat Café, a Kapahulu business dedicated to finding new homes for felines with the perfect blend of food and fun. The Hawaii Cat Café is Hawaii’s first and only cat café and offers handcrafted beverages and European style pastries in the company of Hawaiian Humane Society cats who are all available for adoption. The focus of the café is to find more homes for more cats and to educate the public about responsible pet ownership. Potential adopters get to know the cats' personalities in a fun environment. All cats available for adoption at the café are spayed/neutered, microchipped, dewormed, flea-treated and vaccinated.
“We’re always striving to place more cats in homes and this partnership just made sense,” said Jenny LeMaster, adoptions and admissions manager at the Hawaiian Humane Society. “At the Hawaii Cat Café, cats have a large, safe, clean environment to socialize with both people and other cats. It allows people to really get to know the animals they are looking to adopt." Reservations at the Hawaii Cat Café are recommended as a limited number of people are allowed in the cat lounge at a time, but walk-ins are also welcome. For more information, visit HawaiiCatCafe.org or schedule your own play date today!
Q&A: Ask a humane investigator
County of Honolulu law for a dog to bark constantly for 10 minutes, or unprovoked for 30 minutes on and off, to the disturbance of others. The Society will help to resolve complaints by working with pet owners on how to remedy the situation. Unresolved and persistent barking can lead to fines and court appearances, but you must be ready to provide a statement and testify in a court of law.
Hawaiian Humane Society’s humane investigator Oﬃcer Ling leads the Field Services team. With more than 17 years of experience enforcing animal laws on Oahu, Oﬃcer Ling provides expert information for pet owners regarding how to be a responsible pet owner and follow the laws of the City and County of Honolulu.
I was jogging in my neighborhood when my neighbor’s dog ran up and bit me. What can I do?
Call the Honolulu Police Department to file a report. Make sure you get whatever medical attention is necessary and request documentation. This can be included in the case report. If the dog bite results in bodily injury to you, the dog owner could be found guilty of a petty misdemeanor and fined no less than $500 and jailed for up to 30 days.
My neighbor’s dog barks all night. What can I do about it?
The first step is to talk with your neighbor. He may not know that his canine companion is making so much noise as he may be away at work. If that doesn’t work, we suggest reaching out to the Mediation Center of the Pacific, which can help with resolving barking dog issues. Its experts advocate that neighbor-toneighbor disputes can often be resolved with the right approach in which the goal is to ensure the complaint is openly received and that the pet owner does not become defensive. Call 521-6767 for mediation support.
My neighbor feeds cats. Is this legal?
As long your neighbor is not feeding on private property without permission, it is legal to feed Free-Roaming cats in the neighborhood. You may want to consider finding out if your neighbor practices Trap-NeuterReturn-Manage, an effective and humane strategy that helps to stabilize the population.
If mediation does not work, you may also file a complaint with Hawaiian Humane. It is against City and

Waggin’ Tales Boy Scouts give back Two paws up to Boy Scouts Troop 425, which gave back to Oahu’s animals by making dog beds from scratch, using their own handiwork and materials, and hosting a donation drive in which they collected supplies including food, toys, blankets and treats. One of their members, Vinny B., earned his Eagle Scout Award for his work. Giving thanks to Ruby Tuesday Hawaii Three cheers to Ruby Tuesday Hawaii and local owner Rick Nakashima for sharing aloha with the Hawaiian Humane Society and Oahu’s animals during their annual “Giving Thanks” program. Ruby Tuesday Hawaii donated pet food to the Society’s Pet Food Bank, which helps Oahu’s pets and owners who may be going through hard times, and also cooked Thanksgiving meals for the Society’s staff. Towels, towels and more towels After what started as a small callout reached across the island, a massive mahalo goes out to the community for its generosity in bringing towel donations to help the animals in the Society’s care. Individuals to corporate and community groups have all sent or dropped off donations, including The Kahala Hotel & Resort, Hokulani Waikiki, Trump International Hotel Waikiki, Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort and United Laundry. The outpouring shows the great support we all have for helping Oahu’s animals.
Pet Expo draws animal lovers from across the state A round of ap-paws for the Hawaii Veterinary Medical Association for donating exhibition space to the Hawaiian Humane Society at the 2019 Hawaii Pet Expo. It was great to see all of the animal lovers, pet owners and furry companions alike! Sit, stay and save for adoptions Mahalo to American Carpet One for sponsoring adoption fees at its June 15 “Sit, Stay & Save” adoption event. With the return of this event, another nine dogs and five cats found their new families.
Aon Hewitt gets down and dirty for the animals Mahalo to our fur-iends at Aon Hewitt for stopping by the Hawaiian Humane Society and volunteering their time at Hawaiian Humane’s Moiliili campus. The group helped with dog walking, cat house cleaning and small animal enclosure cleaning. All of their assistance was truly appreciated by the animals!

Help shape the future of the
Hawaiian Humane Society
Our mission of creating a compassionate and humane society for animals and people is sustained by generous pet lovers who believe there must be a place where all animals are welcome and receive the care they need. When you make a gift to the Hawaiian Humane Society through your estate plans, you help ensure that we’ll be here – committed to the welfare of animals in Hawaii – for many years to come. For more information about making the Hawaiian Humane Society a part of your legacy, please call 356-2213 or email giving@hawaiianhumane. org. If the Hawaiian Humane Society is already a part of your estate plans, please notify us so we can recognize you as a member of the Helen Kinau Wilder Legacy Society.
