Paw Prints is published quarterly by Hawaiian Humane Society, 2700 Waialae Ave. Honolulu, HI 96826. Issued 7/1/2022 (FY23-1).
A MESSAGE FROM ANNA In the fall of 2019, when I arrived on O‘ahu to lead this amazing organization, the Ewa campus was a set of blueprints and an overgrown jungle on a prime corner lot. The project had faced years of delays and the plans were in some ways already out of step with current best practices. We dug into the plans, made the necessary changes and got to work. In this edition of Paw Prints you can see how far we’ve come. Our team has made similar progress in a multitude of ways. Hawaiian Humane has embraced the Socially Conscious Animal Community framework, which invites all community stakeholders to work together and achieve better outcomes for people and their pets. In that spirit, we have collaborated with groups such as Greater Good Charities. In this issue you will see a recap of an incredible six-day Free-Roaming cat spay/ neuter event that will allow more than 1,300 animals to lead healthier lives without contributing to pet overpopulation. We have engaged the community to help more kittens born outdoors by assembling and distributing Kitten Kits at no charge so that good Samaritans can provide the intensive, loving care needed by the littlest and most vulnerable so they can grow big enough to have spay/neuter surgery and find new homes. We have championed critical advances in our local and state animal laws, most recently helping to pass a bill that will improve access to veterinary care in our state. In these pages, veteran Hawaiian Humane staff and supporters highlight the advances that have been particularly meaningful to them. To reflect this progress and our commitment to continuing to grow and improve, Hawaiian Humane’s staff and board recently revised our position
statements for the first time in more than a dozen years. This document describes the values and positions that underpin our mission. Our updated position statements address the ways in which the Hawaiian Humane Society promotes humane treatment for every living creature and they reflect our commitment to the human-animal bond, exemplified in our slogan, “People for Animals. Animals for People.” They also include a new section highlighting community engagement and education, which are indispensable to the progress we have made and will continue to make toward the creation of a more compassionate community for animals and people alike. Find our position statements at HawaiianHumane.org/Where-We-Stand. I hope you enjoy the stories in this issue, which capture some of the progress our team has made at what has been a challenging time in our community and around the globe. Mahalo for your support for animal welfare and your commitment to protecting our fellow creatures. Your contribution has made these advances possible.

R N ON L
Hawaiian Humane was founded in 1883 with the mission to promote the human-animal bond and the humane treatment of all animals. This has not changed in our almost 140 years of service and continues to act as our driving force in all we do. That is especially true as we expand, innovate and continue to become the progressive organization our island’s animals need and deserve. While change ebbs and flows, Hawaiian Humane has seen much of it over the years. All of this change has led us to where we are now, and who better to reflect on that progress than some of our long-time team members and supporters? We had the chance to speak with Vernon Ling, Field Services Sergeant; Dr. Carlene Takushi, DVM; and Ginny Tiu, lifetime animal lover and current board member, about the progress they have witnessed over their long tenures.
had a passion for animals and helping people. I also wanted to broaden my investigation skills and felt that working for Hawaiian Humane would be a great start. Ginny: I joined Hawaiian Humane’s board of directors in 2009. I was made aware of the many animals, who through no fault of their own, found themselves homeless, and realizing how helpless they were, I knew I couldn’t just stand by. I wanted to be involved with animal welfare. At first, I actually thought about starting a shelter, but after doing my homework, I realized
all that it would take to do that, financially, staffing and more. So I looked into other organizations. I liked what I learned about the Hawaiian Humane Society, and decided to support its work and mission. Dr. T: I started working at Hawaiian Humane Society in August 1993. I was in private practice and felt like I needed to do something different. I needed a change, so I stopped private practice and began doing relief work all over the island. The director of operations at the time was a veterinarian as well and I had worked with her in the past. I asked her if there was something I could do at Hawaiian Humane and she hired me to do shelter veterinary surgeries. I’ve been doing surgery here since then. During your tenure at Hawaiian Humane, what kind of progress have you witnessed in the organization? What stands out the most to you?
When did you first get involved with Hawaiian Humane and what drew you to the organization? Vern: I started with Hawaiian Humane in February 2002 after I saw an employment ad in the newspaper and applied. I always
Talk Story with ...
Vern at the beginning of his career at Hawaiian Humane in 2004!

Vern: I’ve seen a great amount of progress and change at the shelter since the beginning of my career here. The most progress I have witnessed in
my particular area began with the expansion of our Mō‘ili‘ili campus with our new admissions building and adding more capacity with kennels and holding areas. That was huge and made such a difference in the work we were able to do. The next would be our leadership team. With Anna [Neubauer, President & CEO] and Dr. Carter at the helm, we were able to make tremendous and progressive policy changes that brought us in alignment with nationwide best practices. I can surely say we’ve come a long way and that I’m excited to see where we go from here. Ginny: We have become much more transparent, collaborative and engaging with other animal welfare organizations and the community at large! We have a much more robust community outreach program. We are also much more active and involved with advocacy, something I feel strongly about. We need to give value to animals, and consequences to their abusers. I totally agree with the statement by Mahatma Gandhi when he said, “the greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” It should concern us when people have no empathy for the most vulnerable. It is a reflection of who we are. I hope that our aloha is always extended to our animals as well. Dr. T: There have been a lot of changes since 1993. I think one of the biggest change though, one that I feel really good about, is that we’ve drastically increased our lifesaving numbers. That is a change that happened with leadership and policy changes. We’re also able to treat more than we used to. We’re saving a lot more animals through programs like foster care and more advanced surgical procedures for which we didn't always have the resources or tools before. We’re now able to do in-house X-rays, and
Ginny, a life-long animal lover, has supported Hawaiian Humane since 2009!
perform life-changing surgeries like amputations or enucleations, which enable us to help more animals than ever before. Our advocacy efforts have also increased and progressed. Most recently, the Hawai‘i Veterinary Medical Association’s Veterinary Immunity/Mandatory Reporting bill has really enabled us to immediately act in the best interest of the animal and provide emergency lifesaving care, even if an owner is not available to consent. What excites you most about the expansion of Hawaiian Humane to two campuses? Vern: I’m excited to be able to save more lives and provide the community with more convenience and resources for their pets. Ginny: What most excites me is knowing that the amazing, lifesaving and life-changing work that the Hawaiian Humane Society does will be accessible to more people and animals. The fact that
we will be able to do even more for our precious animals and the community is so motivating. We will be doing more education and spay/ neuter surgeries, the most effective and humane way to control animal overpopulation in our community. What do you envision or hope for the organization, or our larger animal-loving community, in the future? Ginny: We are blessed with wonderful support from our community, but it is my hope that more people, including our elected officials, will have a better understanding and appreciation for how critical our work is, and how much it impacts our community, both animals and people. It has been proved that there is a direct correlation between how one treats animals and how one treats people. That’s why my heart resonates with our mission, “to promote the human-animal bond and the humane treatment of all animals.”

IN OUR BACKYARD
HAPPY TAILS A little TLC goes a long way!
At just one year young, Koa was found limping on Farrington Highway and was picked up by Hawaiian Humane in December of 2020. Our veterinary services team determined that his leg was fractured beyond repair and needed to be immediately amputated for his health, safety and to improve his quality of life. At first, it was difficult for Koa to get used to his new three-legged life. Within a couple of days, he figured out the best way to walk, though he was still quite afraid of people. While spending time with our staff and volunteers, he began to warm up to familiar faces, but he needed a loving home and calm
environment to adjust to his new "tri-pawd" lifestyle. Then in January of 2021, Kacey came to Hawaiian Humane to find a new pet. She saw little Koa and fell deeply in love. She didn’t mind that this young dog had only three legs and wanted to show him the love and care he needed and deserved. Kacey adopted Koa and decided to rename him Elijah. She was ready to help him overcome his anxiety and wanted to help him feel confident. Elijah was finally able to receive the 1-on-1 attention he needed with a new name, home and family. Now Elijah’s a happy, healthy boy who enjoys treats, late-night cuddles and wrestling with his puppy friend, Raya. He’s now less apprehensive when

meeting new people and is more willing to meet new dogs. He’s still learning to have fun on walks and how to be confident around larger groups of people. Although Kacey has a long way to go to help Elijah get over his anxiety, she’s dedicated to giving him all the TLC and loving patience he needs. The power of the human-animal bond can heal many wounds, and this pair’s relationship is no different. Elijah has become an integral part of the family, and despite his missing leg, he still has a big heart and lots of love to give, thanks to Kacey’s compassion and care.
Legislative session delivers wins! Hawaiian Humane Society’s top priority for the 2022 legislative session was to improve access to veterinary care for our state’s animals and pet owners. SB2798, SD1, HD2, CD1, passed both chambers and has been sent to Governor David Ige for his approval. The bill creates two new permits that would allow qualified out-of-state veterinarians to practice in Hawai‘i temporarily at the invitation of a Hawai‘ilicensed veterinarian. It also allows qualified outof-state veterinarians to come in to help the case of animal rescues and disaster response. Further, it codifies the rules around veterinary telemedicine and allows for international veterinary school graduates to take Hawai‘i’s licensing exam. This measure will help animals in need. Governor Ige has until July 12 to either veto the bill, sign it or let it become law without his signature. While we don’t expect the governor to oppose the measure,
it always helps to demonstrate that the community is in support. Please ask Governor Ige to sign this bill by visiting https://governor.hawaii.gov/contact-us/ comments-on-legislation. Comments can be brief. Lawmakers also approved a $700,000 grant in aid request to help fund the construction of Hawaiian Humane’s new campus in Ewa! We are grateful that the Legislature recognizes the importance of bringing animal welfare services to this pet-loving and underresourced part of O‘ahu. With nearly $27 million of the $30 million project raised so far, the vast majority from private donors, this public funding reinforces the importance of the human-animal bond to Hawai‘i families. If you are interested in supporting Hawaiian Humane Society’s mission-centered public policy efforts, sign up for our advocacy email list at HawaiianHumane. org/Join-Our-Advocacy-Support-Team or email Advocacy@HawaiianHumane.org.
Good Fix O‘ahu’s inaugural mass spay/ neuter event proves a huge success! This past April, Good Fix made its way to O‘ahu and helped our community spay/neuter over 1,300 cats! Mahalo to Greater Good Charities for partnering with us and bringing Good Fix to O'ahu, and to all of the caring community members who volunteered, donated and brought in Free-Roaming cats to the clinics–we could not have accomplished this incredible task without the collective kōkua from our community!

Construction progress report: Our next chapter takes shape in West O‘ahu! Just over one year ago, we broke ground on what will soon become Hawaiian Humane’s second campus on the island of O‘ahu. The 5-acre corner lot on Old Fort Weaver Road, once thick with overgrowth and piles of dirt, has begun to transform before our eyes into years worth of dreams come true.
Our staff, board of directors and team of volunteers recently had the unique opportunity to sign a 16foot beam that will become a permanent part of our campus structure in West O‘ahu. Messages of excitement, support and thanks now decorate the beam and will fill our new campus with aloha.
Shortly after groundbreaking in May 2021, mass grading began to move earth and prepare the site for final grading and the beginning of construction. Then in October 2021, excavation for the foundation and plumbing began and structures quickly began to take shape.
While we initially planned on opening our West O‘ahu campus in early 2023, unforeseen circumstances with materials and shipping have unfortunately caused us to delay the grand opening until April 2023. The incredible team at Allied Builders continue to work hard and keep us on schedule despite these unanticipated setbacks!
Over the past eight months, vertical construction has been well underway and you can already see part of our renderings coming to life. If you were to visit the site today, you would see the beginnings of our new admissions and shelter veterinary services building, cat, dog and small animal pavilions, acquaintance yards and more.
We will continue to share updates on progress, so stay tuned to our Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and website at HawaiianHumane.org

DID YOU KNOW?
Safety tips for a summer of fun We all know that special feeling when it comes to the warmer months here in Hawai‘i. Time to fire up the barbeque, set up the shade tent on the beach or go for an early hike around the beautiful island we call home. Often, we pet owners want our furry friends to come along for the ride and enjoy the outdoors with the rest of the family. Keep the fun going during the summer (and year-round) by taking simple steps to keep your pets safe.
with us to the beach or on a walk. The best way to ensure that your cat doesn’t get into trouble is to keep them indoors. You can rest easy with your cat inside, knowing they will not get into any fights or get stuck in a tree. Plus, it keeps their waste confined to their litter box, helping the environment and our native species. Provide plenty of enrichment for your indoor cats, such as toys, scratch posts, cat trees and cat shelves. Avoid things like string and toxic plants.
An everyday activity, such as walking, is excellent for your and your dog’s health. One of the most basic safety steps is walking your dog with a leash. Not only is walking your dog on a leash the law, but it also helps protect the environment! It’s a simple step to take when getting your daily exercise with your pet. When you leash your dog, you are in control and can prevent accidents from happening. Don’t forget to pick up their waste and help keep our island clean for all to enjoy.
Not every situation is appropriate for your dog. If you need to leave your dog at home, make sure that you put away things they are not supposed to chew and don’t leave out food. Do not leave your dog outside unattended. They can overheat or become stressed and escape the yard. Keep them in a dog-safe room, or kennel train them. Remember, the kennel should be a spot of comfort and reward, not a punishment.
Did you know that pets can get sunburnt too? A hot and cloudless day may mean the perfect day in the sun for people, but for dogs, it can spell danger. Dogs wear their coats year-round and don't sweat to release heat as humans do. When taking your dog outside, avoid peak hours when it’s the hottest. Be conscious of the weather and hot surfaces like sidewalks or sand. If you have ever walked barefoot on the sidewalk on a hot day, you can imagine the pain dogs feel on their sensitive paws. Make sure you exercise with your dog in shaded areas and bring plenty of water for you both to stay hydrated. Keep a close eye on your dog for signs of overheating. If your dog is excessively panting or has excessive saliva, this may signify heat stress. Seek medical care if you notice strange behavior, blue gums or if your dog seems unwell. Most cat lovers don’t take our feline friends 10 | Hawaiian Humane Society • HawaiianHumane.org
If you leave your pets at home alone, place a sticker on your front door or window that lets emergency services know what animals are in the house in case of fire or other emergencies where they need to evacuate your home. A great local resource for fire safety is The Eddy Project. They provide the community with emergency stickers to help emergency services know what pets live in your home if they need to be rescued. You can find them in pet stores around the island or online at CommunityKokuaFoundation.com closer to National Pet Fire Safety Day on July 15. Pets bring so much joy and love to our lives. Protect the ones you love by following simple safety steps. For even more tips and resources, check out HawaiianHumane.org.
ARE YOU AND YOUR PETS PREPARED FOR A HURRICANE? It's hurricane season and being prepared means having a plan for your pets too! All shelters on O‘ahu are pet-friendly, but they will not provide supplies so be sure to stock up now and have your Pet Disaster Preparedness Kit ready to go.
Pet Disaster Preparedness Kit Checklist: 14-day supply of food and water in sealed containers Crate or carrier for each pet in which they can stand up and turn around Leash and collar with owner contact number on collar or ID tag Bedding, towels and toys Medications, vaccination records, microchip number and other veterinary paperwork Food and water bowls; can opener (if needed) Grooming supplies Cleaning supplies for crates and litter boxes Cat litter in sealed containers with litter pan Printed photographs of your pet Pet first aid kit

Supporter Spotlight There’s No Place Like Home… This year's Tuxes & Tails theme was There's No Place Like Home. To complement the theme and help raise critical funds for our animals, generous donors such as Stanford Carr Development, D.R. Horton, Gentry Homes and Castle and Cooke built custom dog and cat homes to place up for bid during the event's silent auction. A charitable donor purchased a custom dog home built by the D.R. Horton team and anonymously donated it to Hale Mauliola transitional shelter, which welcomes homeless pet owners. You can see how happy the donation made the new homeowner! Mahalo to the creative minds and generosity of our builders and to our anonymous donor for their winning bid and paying it forward to our friends at Hale Mauliola!
Ginny Tiu goes the extra mile to help our island’s pets! Long-time supporter and animal lover Ginny Tiu has continued to show her passion for animal welfare. At this year's Tuxes & Tails: There's No Place Like Home gala and fundraiser at The Royal Hawaiian on April 9, 2022, Ginny surprised her fellow attendees by announcing a $50,000 match that was generously met and exceeded by guests of the gala event!

WE NEED FOSTER VOLUNTEERS, MEOW! Not sure if you’re ready for adoption, but you’d still like to help animals in need? Consider becoming a foster volunteer! Fostering is a great way to see if you’re ready for a full-time pet, or help us temporarily care for pets who require a little more TLC before they’re ready for adoption. Visit HawaiianHumane.org/FosterCare to learn more about the requirements for being a foster volunteer and the quick and easy onboarding process! 22 | Hawaiian Humane Society • HawaiianHumane.org

It’s an easy way to support us and it’s a tax savings for you when you rollover your IRA distribution directly to the Hawaiian Humane Society. You’ll incur no taxes on the income and your IRA funds will go straight to the animals. Call us at 808-356-2213 or email us at Giving@HawaiianHumane.org and we’ll help you make it happen. Our animals in need thank you! Please check with your financial advisor about your distribution requirements. The IRS does not allow a tax deduction for IRA transfer gifts.
