On the cover: Buzz, the inspiration for “Buzz’s Law,” detailed on page 12. Paw Prints is published quarterly by Hawaiian Humane Society, 2700 Waialae Ave. Honolulu, HI 96826. Issued 10/1/2021 (FY22-2).


A MESSAGE FROM ANNA Faithful readers of our Paw Prints will have read several articles about our shelter veterinary program over the past year. We’ve shared about our dental program that helps improve the lives of our animals, and helps new adopters avoid costly medical bills, and we’ve also discussed the lifesaving benefits of amputation surgeries. Significant medical interventions such as these are critical pieces in the full spectrum of services and support available to the animals in our care. A modern and robust veterinary services program is central to delivering on our mission. It is because of our community that we are able to do this. Shelter veterinary medicine is a unique calling, and is a specialized field of its own with a very specific set of challenges. These include: a very high volume of animals needing service, little to no medical history available for the animals in our care, often severe injuries or health issues due to neglect or abuse, the realities and risks of infectious diseases spreading in a shelter population, behavioral issues and resource constraints. Our dedicated veterinary services team navigates these challenges every day, managing both individual and population health with a focus on giving the animals a better quality of life while in our care and in their new lives with loving families. Our laser-focus on saving lives requires our veterinary team to be innovative and creative, working with our partners in the animal welfare and care community as well as with other teams at Hawaiian Humane to come up with effective responses to significant challenges.

populations. Our veterinary team moved quickly to work with our operations team and partners to isolate the infected cats, provide care and support where possible, revaccinate cats in our care, and conduct additional testing to identify any cats who may have been infected. We were able to successfully avoid a destructive outbreak and very quickly contain the spread of the virus, resulting in many cats’ lives being saved. In this case, our veterinarians were performing the role of epidemiologists, identifying a disease and moving quickly to protect our entire animal population, including exposed cats. This education and experience is vital to a successful shelter medicine program and we are so fortunate to have the team and resources to do so. I’ve worked in veterinary medicine and animal welfare since I was in high school and I’ve seen the field of veterinary shelter medicine evolve and modernize, enabling the animal welfare field to have dramatically improved outcomes for our animals. Our own Hawaiian Humane Society veterinary services mirror this progress, and I’m very proud of our team and the daily impact we are having in the lives of the animals in our care and beyond. In this issue you’ll hear directly from our veterinary services team about why they chose the field of shelter medicine, and what inspires them every day to step up to the challenge. I hope you enjoy reading about it.

A recent example is an outbreak of panleukopenia that occurred in some of the cats in our care. Panleukopenia is an infectious feline-specific virus similar to parvovirus in dogs, which has a high mortality rate for cats who contract it. While we vaccinate all of our dogs and cats on intake, it can take time for a full immunity to develop and we unfortunately saw some limited spread within one of our cat

The special calling of shelter veterinary medicine Working in shelter medicine is a special calling. It requires compassion, creativity, tenacity and a commitment to producing the best outcomes for animals in your care. Paw Prints sat down with members of the Veterinary Services team to learn more about them.

Kasey Carter, MS, DVM Chief Veterinarian Paw Prints: Please tell us what drew you to be a veterinarian and about your path into the field? Dr. Carter: As a child our family had a lot of animals including many different breeds of dogs. We had afghan hounds, malteses, pit bulls, labs, shar peis, min pins and bull dogs. We even had skunks and jerboas, two monkeys, and pot belly pigs. I was exposed to animals growing up and they were a comfort for me. I started in college planning to be an engineer, but I pretty quickly discovered it wasn’t for me, so I went for a veterinary science degree at the University of Arizona. I then went to Colorado State University (CSU) and got a masters in biomedical science with a veterinary interest. And then to vet school and graduated in 2013. Paw Prints: Shelter medicine is a unique field within veterinary medicine. What steered you towards shelter medicine? Dr. Carter: In veterinary school I volunteered at the Larimer Humane Society, and that started my interest in shelters. Then I got into a study with one of the veterinarians at CSU on shelter cats with URIs (upper respiratory infections). The cats we studied were at Dumb Friends League, a shelter in Denver, and had all been through treatment and were still sick, so there was a chance that some of the cats would have been euthanized because they weren’t responding to treatment. 4 | Hawaiian Humane Society • HawaiianHumane.org

As part of our study we brought them back to our CSU treatment area and gave them additional care with the result that almost 100% of those cats healed up and were eventually adopted. That’s what got me started with Dumb Friends League. When I went there, I would do the study for a few hours, and when I was done, the veterinarians would mentor me and teach me how to do surgery. After graduation, they created an internship program and I became their first veterinarian intern. Six months into my internship, they hired me as a staff vet. Paw Prints: Can you tell us of something that’s personally rewarding and that keeps you doing what you do? Dr. Carter: Big picture, knowing the number of animal lives you get to touch in a day is what keeps us here. Shelter vets are able to directly help 40-80 animals per day; a larger number than many other veterinary medicine specialties. It’s rewarding to know the scope of what you are able to do as a shelter vet and the impact you are able to make, to help these animals that otherwise don’t have help from anywhere else. They don’t have owners, so we are their caretaker and we do what’s right for them. Paw Prints: Tell us about your pets. Dr. Carter: I have two dogs, named Kevin and Frank. They were both shelter dogs from Dumb Friends League. We also have Patrice who is a 16 year old obese tortie cat, and cancer survivor with an autoimmune disease, who came to Hawaiian Humane through the Hawaii Cat Foundation. Paw Prints: What do you do to decompress from this rewarding but intense work? Dr. Carter: It’s kind of funny, but to decompress from work and the animals here, I go home and rely on my pets to be there for me. And they always are. I think from my childhood, that’s where my love for animals came from, they were always there for me. I also like to skateboard, go to the beach, and eat good food.


was very shy when he arrived at our shelter and had a prong collar left on his neck. No one knew if Makana was even friendly at the time, so I took the initiative to go into his kennel and remove his collar. Makana immediately started licking my face as I removed the prong collar. Makana proved to be difficult to walk since he pulled really hard. Given my comfort with large breeds and my background in animal behavior, I would walk Makana whenever I could. Our bond grew, and from the time I first leashed him, Makana became “my dog” during his stay at the Humane Society. Paw Prints: Do you have any pets?

Chun Tam, Veterinary Services Assistant I Paw Prints: What inspired you to work in the veterinary field? Chun Tam: I was inspired to work in the shelter veterinary field when I first started working in the Hawaiian Humane Society admissions department. During my time in Admissions, I was partnering with the Veterinary Services team. I remember one time someone on the veterinary team showed me how to properly give an animal medication orally. A few years after that lesson, I used that same technique to administer charcoal pills into a husky and shepherd that had possibly ingested a foreign object. The technique that tech had taught me saved both of their lives. As of today, I have been on the Veterinary Services team for two years. Paw Prints: Can you share stories of any animals that stood out to you? Chun Tam: Primo is a very special Cane Corso or Italian Mastiff. He initially came in as a stray during the pandemic in the first half of 2020. His owners were contacted and they decided to surrender Primo to the Hawaiian Humane Society. Upon arrival, Primo had bilateral cherry eye. To complicate matters further, Primo was very pushy, chewed on leashes when he was frustrated and enjoyed jumping on people. This made treatment and any interactions with him very difficult. Fortunately, Primo is motivated by human interaction. Through patience and perseverance, Primo eventually learned manners and basic obedience. After his surgery Primo went to a foster home and was later adopted by another family who welcomed him into their home. Another dog that I will always remember is Makana. Makana is a 105-pound German Shepherd. Makana

Chun Tam: I don’t have any pets at the moment, but not a day goes by that I don’t think about the lives that I have touched like Koa and Angel the Rottweilers, Max and Sophie the Dobermans, Primo or Makana.

Robert Buntz, DVM Paw Prints: What got you into the veterinary field and where did you go to school? Dr. Buntz: I really enjoy the medicine aspect. I like working with animals. It just made sense to mix the two. I spent a few years in the army, then did undergraduate at Arizona State and vet school at Colorado State University. Paw Prints: What brought you to Hawai‘i? Dr. Buntz: I was stationed here when I was in the army and always wanted to come back. I like surfing. Paw Prints: What made you interested in shelter medicine specifically? Dr. Buntz: Really just getting to do the most good. I feel like in shelter medicine there is a really big potential for doing a lot of good. And maybe more than other fields in the past couple of years, it’s seen the most improvement in the quality that can be provided. For example, all the dental work we are able to do, and the upcoming installation of our X-ray machine.

Continued: The special calling of shelter veterinary medicine Paw Prints: Is there a part of the work you do that’s especially rewarding to you? Dr. Buntz: When you get a complicated case and get a good outcome it makes everyone very happy. Paw Prints: Is there anything you would want your friends or family or public to know about this job? Dr. Buntz: I think some people might think it’s playing with puppies and kittens all day. While we do get to play with puppies and kittens, a lot of it is taking care of the very sick and injured animals no one else is taking care of. I think that’s the most compelling and important part of the role. Paw Prints: What do you do to relax? Dr. Buntz: Hang out with my dogs and surf.

Tatiana Reyna-Gomez, Veterinary Services Manager Paw Prints: What drew you to veterinary services? Tatiana Reyna-Gomez: I actually stumbled on it accidentally. I wanted to be in animal care and started in Admissions at Hawaiian Humane. After a few years in Admissions, the next step of my growth was the medical aspect. I’m drawn to the excitement and energy of an emergency clinic. After two years as a vet tech I was invited to be Veterinary Services Manager

and I’ve been in this role for a year and a half. There are always new challenges and new aspects to consider. I’m in love with shelter work. Paw Prints: What excites you about your current role? Tatiana Reyna-Gomez: I’ve learned a lot about leading people. One of the key things I’ve learned is that unless you care for the people, the animals will not benefit. I get a lot of excitement and satisfaction from putting together a team that really flows well. Paw Prints: What do you want the public to know about the shelter world? Tatiana Reyna-Gomez: In the work we do, we see a lot of difficult things. We sometimes see people going through difficult times. In my early days in Admissions, one of my peers told me that we aren’t in a position to judge people. We don’t know what they are going through, if for example they are having to surrender a pet. But it takes a lot of bravery to be kind. Paw Prints: We know you have a lot of pets. Tell us about them. Tatiana Reyna-Gomez: I have four dogs. Three little ones and a pitty mix. I also have two cats. One of them was a free-roamer that I socialized. The other is a foster-fail. I have two rats. I love rats. Paw Prints: What do you do to decompress after a busy day at the shelter? Tatiana Reyna-Gomez: I love gardening and relaxing outside in my garden with my animals.


IN OUR BACKYARD

HAPPY TAILS Five years later – three tales of rescue and new beginnings This October marks five years since Hawaiian Humane Society and the Honolulu Police Department received the call to rescue over 300 dogs and several rabbits from inhumane living conditions in the Waianae area of west O'ahu.

Animals on the property, then known as the Friends for Life “No-Kill” Shelter, were found covered in feces and urine and in overcrowded cages that restricted the dogs’ ability to stand up and turn around. Pet waste was also found in water bowls and food dishes, with rats and mice feeding off of open bags of rotting food throughout the ‘shelter.’ To say the conditions were deplorable would be an understatement–some of the dogs rescued suffered debilitating skin disorders, had open wounds and pressure sores and others were malnourished and starving. Some were in such critical condition, they required immediate emergency medical attention from local veterinary hospitals. Our entire team and community of advocates answered the call, without hesitation. Eighty-five staff members and 461 volunteers dedicated more than 9,000 hours to feed, clean and socialize the rescued animals.

As we reflect on the events from five years ago, we are once again overwhelmed with the sincerest gratitude to our generous community who donated muchneeded volunteer time and opened their homes to allow the dogs to heal, both physically and emotionally. In honor of the anniversary of this memorable rescue, we touched bases with three families who took in and fell in love with some of the rescued dogs.

CLIFFORD

Clifford

Trey first met Clifford, a 100-pound bully mix rescued from Friends for Life, as a temporary employee at Hawaiian Humane. While on a tour of campus, Trey recalls seeing Clifford in his kennel where he was refusing to eat or interact–he was sad and depressed. While hesitant to climb in a kennel with a large dog with a history of neglect, Trey made a point to sit in the kennel with Clifford, get to know him and take him for walks. Little by little, as they built trust and friendship, Clifford became what Trey called a “100-pound lap dog that loved butt scratches”! Their bond grew stronger each day and when given the opportunity, Trey decided to foster, and then permanently adopt Clifford, the gentle giant (just like his namesake). Trey shared that Clifford has been the perfect fit for his family. He is “good, healthy and getting old but still loves those butt scratches!”

Continued: Five years later – three tales of rescue ... When Sophie first met her new family, she was friendly but a bit cautious, particularly of men, and was startled by loud noises. However, she had no trouble making herself at home and settling into a new routine. It has taken time, but with a lot of patience and TLC from a wonderful family, Sophie has transformed into a sweet dog who loves wrestling with Ruth’s son, riding in the car, going on walks and at the top of her list, eating! Ruth says, "Ours is now HERS and she has us very well trained!"

SOPHIE WHEN RESCUED

MAX

Max

Upon rescue, Max was in rough shape. In addition to calluses on his bottom from sitting on cement for extended periods of time, missing part of his left ear and poor dental health due to lack of care and poor nutrition, Max was also fearful of sudden noises, rustling of leaves and cars passing by. After five years of loving care and adventures with his new family, Max is now reportedly a playful, confident and happy pup that loves car rides to the North Shore, adventurous hikes in the woods, running and doing zoomies in low tide, hunting for crabs and barking at little fish in the ocean, trying his paws at SUP and being tucked in at night in his own room. “Max has brought so much joy to us and we enjoy life through his eyes,” says his adopter, Margarita Chung. “He is living his best life!” To learn more about Max’s story, check out page 14.

Sophie

During Sophie’s initial days in our care, she was visibly sad and would sit in her kennel quietly, despite the chaos going on around her. Ruth was a volunteer at the time and, upon checking on Sophie, was appalled to find that the dog was infested with ticks and could barely walk. It broke her heart to learn that Sophie also had a blood infection, was malnourished and had lost most of her fur due to a bad case of mange. As weeks of Sophie's medical treatment went on, Sophie and Ruth formed a special connection. When Sophie was ready for foster care, she naturally went home with Ruth ... and never left! 8 | Hawaiian Humane Society • HawaiianHumane.org

Keep holiday festivities fun with these Holiday Pet Safety Tips! The holiday season is an exciting time filled with joy and celebration for many families across the island. From the pleasure of eating Thanksgiving dinner with the family to the excitement of gifts and merriment, we find plenty to be grateful for during these challenging times. However, celebrations for people oftentimes create seasonally unique hazards for your pets that could sour your holiday festivities. This holiday season, remember to be mindful of activities that can pose greater risk to your pets. Follow some of these safety tips to help limit the holiday hazards your pet is exposed to during joyous celebrations. Despite our best efforts, man's best friend can sometimes get a little too familiar with the holiday dinner plate. Keep a careful eye on your pets during holiday feasts. Fatty and sweet treats can make your pet ill and have the potential to cause serious health complications. Also, never give your pet cooked bones as they can splinter when chewed and become a choking hazard or cause serious internal injury. Gifts bring joy, even to our animals, but be sure to dispose of bows and ribbons immediately after use. If ingested, string and ribbon can potentially block your pet's digestive system resulting in the need for expensive surgeries. Even the most well-behaved pets are tempted to play with

ornaments and tinsel, so be sure to pet-proof your decor and don't forget to secure your Christmas trees properly to prevent it from falling over! Keep your companion animal in a safe place indoors, and do not leave your pet unattended outside, especially in days/ evenings leading up to the new year. New Year's Eve is a popular time for both planned and unplanned fireworks on O'ahu. The loud booms and flashing lights of fireworks can scare pets into running away, and they can even jump high fences if spooked enough. Ensuring your pet has proper identification like a microchip and a collar with an ID tag will help you reunite with them faster if they become lost.

injured or displaying abnormal behavior, be sure to contact your veterinarian ASAP. Lastly, if you find a lost pet, bring them to the Hawaiian Humane Society's Admissions Center, where they can be reunited with their owners. Immediately call the Hawaiian Humane Society at 808-356-2228 if your pet is lost and file a Lost Pet Report. You may also fill out a report at HawaiianHumane.org.

Advocacy Update: We did it! Hawai‘i passes five new laws, strengthening protections for animals state-wide In December of 2020 a small stray dog came to Hawaiian Humane’s Mō‘ili‘ili campus in rough shape. She had no identification, her hair was badly matted and she had a prolapsed eye, meaning one of her eyes had popped out of its socket.

shattered limbs, prolapsed eyes and other painful but not lifethreatening conditions can now be treated immediately,” said Dr. Kasey Carter, chief veterinarian. “This is a huge win for the animals we see everyday.”

By law, Hawaiian Humane would not have legal custody of her for 48 hours. Since no owner could be reached, our chief veterinarian could not secure permission to sedate her and perform an enucleation surgery, which would remove the damaged eye and set her on the road to recovery. Our staff took measures to ease her pain and waited out the hold period.

Act 91, which had the strong support of the Hawaii Veterinary Medical Association, also requires veterinarians to report suspected animal cruelty to law enforcement.

Named Ariel by our staff, she was unclaimed and finally got the care she needed. Act 91, signed June 25 by Governor David Ige, would have allowed our team to operate two days earlier, which they badly wanted to do.

“Veterinarians and their teams are, in many cases, frontline witnesses in suspected animal cruelty cases,” said Harold Han, field services manager. “Mandatory reporting will help to protect our entire community and fosters a culture of ‘see something-say something,’ which is crucial to community policing and safer neighborhoods.”

“With this new law, animals who come to Hawaiian Humane with

The law has enormous potential to protect people as well as animals. Research stretching back decades has established links between violence against animals and the abuse of people.

“By getting SB343 signed into law, we’re better able to protect both animals and those most

vulnerable, our keiki,” said bill sponsor Sen. Mike Gabbard. While it’s an issue no one wants to contemplate, there is online evidence that animals suffer sexual abuse in every county in our state and that people travel to Hawaii to commit these reprehensible acts. Gabbard cited evidence of the strong link between animal sexual abuse and child sexual abuse, child pornography and other violent crimes as reasons for his support. “There’s been a growing awareness of the need to do more to protect our animals. For many, our pets are part of our ‘ohana,” he said. “The aloha spirit should extend to all living beings.” “Hawaiian Humane could not agree more,” said President & CEO Anna Neubauer. “Throughout its history, Hawaiian Humane has advocated for vulnerable people as well as animals. These new laws continue that legacy,” she said. Public Policy Advocate Steph Kendrick thanked all of the lawmakers who helped to advance animal welfare this session, as well as our dedicated advocacy volunteers. “The Hawaiian Humane Society is committed to improving animal laws, but we can’t do it alone,” Kendrick said. “We can only succeed in protecting animals if we can show that the community stands with us.”

Continued: Advocacy Update: Hawai‘i passes five new laws Hawaiian Humane board member Melissa Pavlicek and her team at Hawaii Public Policy Advocates played a vital role in advancing our legislative priorities this session. She shared a new technology platform with Hawaiian Humane this year that made it easier for its volunteer advocates to communicate with lawmakers. “By building capacity and working together as a team, I have no doubt that Hawaiian Humane advocates will continue to help policy leaders make changes that promote animal welfare,” Pavlicek said.

Buzz’s Story

The passage of Act 182, which prohibits the unsafe tethering of a dog and the unsupervised tethering of puppies, marked the culmination of several years of work by Hawaiian Humane and other dog advocates across the state. The dogs who will benefit from this strengthening of our animal cruelty statute have one of their own to thank. His name was Buzz.

Nathan Nielson adopted Buzz from a fosterbased trainer after Buzz’s owner failed to come back for him. Nielson’s wife, Kim Vo, said they aren’t sure about his history prior to that, but he had scars on his head and chin, and his bottom lip had been badly torn. Other dog trainers have told them he had the demeanor Nathan Nielson and Kim Vo adopted Buzz, who was of a dog used to bait possibly used to bait fighting dogs. fighting dogs — a lot of fear-reactivity, but no aggression.

New animal laws We are celebrating five new animal laws supported by Hawaiian Humane and our community advocates. Act 31 establishes the crime of sexual assault of an animal. Act 91 protects veterinarians from civil liability for rendering emergency aid to an animal and requires them to report suspected animal cruelty. Act 182 prohibits the unsafe tethering of dogs and the unsupervised tethering of puppies.

Supporter Spotlight Max, Margarita and Jo Chung make the perfect family of animal advocates! If you've visited our Mō'ili'ili campus, chances are you've seen Max walking the campus as he's been coming to work at the Hawaiian Humane Society with his dog mom, Margarita "Mar" Chung, for the last few years. Seeing them on campus together, walking sideby-side, one can visibly see the bond that they share. It is a bond that has been nurtured since their paths crossed at Hawaiian Humane. Mar and her husband Jo lived in Chicago for over 30 years. Though they enjoyed living in the "Windy City," they shared a lifelong dream of moving to Hawai‘i. It was about five years ago when they decided to make the move and turn their dream into a reality. Once they settled into their new home on O‘ahu, Mar knew she wanted to continue her volunteer and philanthropic work with animals on O‘ahu. As an animal welfare advocate, she spent many years volunteering for an animal shelter in Chicago. Mar researched her opportunities and identified the Hawaiian Humane as an organization with which she could volunteer and quickly signed up. A couple of months after she joined the organization, an "all hands on deck" call was made to staff and volunteers while working a shift. She learned that an emergency rescue was underway, and the shelter needed to immediately prepare for the admission of 331 dogs. Mar jumped into action, cleaning kennels and assisting where the need was greatest. Learning of the many tasks to be completed, Mar called Jo to ask for his help. Without hesitation, he joined Mar at the shelter. Unbeknownst to him at the time, his decision to join the volunteer efforts set a new path in their life journey. Over the next few weeks, Mar and Jo spent their volunteer hours walking the dogs and helping them

adjust to their new surroundings. On one fateful day, Max was included on Jo's walk list. After their first walk together, Jo knew Max was special and developed a soft spot for him. "I recall secretly telling Max that if he becomes available for adoption, we're going to take him home!" shared Jo. On the day the dogs were available for adoption, Jo kept his promise. He called Mar and asked her to meet him at the Adoptions Lanai to introduce her to Max. After hanging up the phone, she was in shock and thought to herself on her walk over, "Are we adopting a dog? I wasn't even thinking of adopting a pet." However, when she entered the Lanai, Max walked up to her and laid his head down by her feet. In an instant, Max won her heart.

life is heartbreaking to think about,” Nishimoto said. “I didn’t want that to happen to any other dog.” Buzz is deeply missed by his family and many friends. “I had him for 7 or 8 years, so about half of his life. Hopefully it made up for the first half,” Nielson said.

“These animals that are there (in shelters or rescues) may have a colored past, but that does not define who they are. They can overcome that and they have so much to give,” she said. “People always say Buzz was so lucky to have us, but I think we were lucky to have him.”

Vo would like Buzz’s story to encourage other people to adopt pets.

Nishimoto was also grateful for Buzz’s influence on his life. “He made me a better person.”

From page 13 When Mar and Jo brought Max home, they described him as being skittish, scared of the rain, and sensitive to even the rustling of leaves. They knew that it would take time to gain his trust. Over the years, Max blossomed in his family's care. Today, he loves going on hikes and to the beach. He especially enjoys accompanying Mar to the Hawaiian Humane Society, where she is now employed as the coordinator for the Development Department. Max also joined the team and serves as the Department's ambassador. He spends his time greeting people and spreading good cheer and willingly accepts love and healthy treats as compensation. The journeys traveled by Max, Mar, and Jo to the Hawaiian Humane Society were vastly different, but they commonly found a new home in their final destination. Today, Max, Mar and Jo are lovely examples of the human-animal bond and living the island life together. 14 | Hawaiian Humane Society • HawaiianHumane.org

Max has inspired the Chungs to want to be part of more positive outcomes at Hawaiian Humane.

Crazy Shirts debuts a new Adopt-A-Dog design, just in time for holiday shopping! The newest Adopt-A-Dog design is here and we’re in love! The message of inspiration behind the design is “because animals bring so much joy, you’re in for the ride of your life when you adopt a pet.” The “dog club” can be seen riding in style in the design. The Short-Sleeve Hawaiian Humane Adopt-A-Dog “Sidecab Dogs” Blue Hawai‘i Crewneck T-Shirt gets its unique color from real blue Curacao liqueur and is made from 100% cotton.

Leaving a legacy Recently, Owen Terada fulfilled a wish to honor his beloved cat, Blackie, in a very special way. Over thirteen years ago, a striking “tuxedo cat,” originally adopted from Hawaiian Humane by another family, found his way over a mountain ridge and into Owen’s heart. Blackie and Owen became the best of friends and that first encounter turned into an eleven-year friendship until Blackie passed away a couple of years ago.

Owen’s generous support made the rededication of Cat House Green possible, and will help provide other cats like Blackie the care they need before finding a new home.

We make every effort to ensure that our information is accurate. If you have any questions, please contact Giving@HawaiianHumane.org.

Board member Ginny Tiu and Carol and Larry Jones tour our soon-to-be radiology room.

Our new X-ray equipment is on the way! Soon, we will be able to diagnose and treat animals on the spot, which will shorten the time it takes for an animal to receive life-changing care and will allow us to help them without the need to transport them to another location for emergency medical care! Mahalo to everyone who supported our Spring Match Challenge! We raised $100,000, which was matched by board member Ginny Tiu and Carol and Larry Jones.
