January – March 2014

A cold nose and furry face inspire healing Animals have the ability to heal hearts and bring joy to our lives. The Hawaiian Humane Society’s petpeople teams have visited healthcare and senior centers island wide for the last 30 years.

Society volunteer Wayne Kojima got involved with the Pet Visitation program after taking his dog Nemo to obedience classes where he excelled. Wayne became so inspired at Nemo’s talents that he thought

his dog would be great at visiting patients. At almost 3 years old, Nemo started visiting Wahiawa General Hospital’s long-term care unit. Nemo is now 10 years old and still going strong. Wayne’s other dog Simba visits the patients at Queen’s Medical Center. “It’s a wonderful experience to make a difference,” Wayne says. “I find it very rewarding to see patients and staff smiling and relaxed when they interact with the dogs.” Patients experience reduced anxiety, relief from loneliness and enhanced well-being. Wayne also knows that his two pups enjoy visiting the patients because they love the attention. “I have found it to be a great way to bond with your dog, a wonderful way to continued on page 2

President’s Message

2014 offers new hope for Oahu’s animals When the Hawaiian Humane Society was founded in 1883, animal lovers came together as a small group of committed citizens determined to make Oahu a better place for animals. These early pioneers included King Kalakaua and other great leaders of our cause. They believed that they could spark a movement that would transform people’s relationship with animals. 2014 offers opportunities both great and small for each of us to make a difference. As we look

to the future, there are so many needs. We need a home in west Oahu. We need a community that will fight for stronger animal protection laws and more responsible pet ownership. Together, we need to end pet overpopulation.

Pamela Burns President & CEO

With your help, we can achieve our community’s full potential for a better today and tomorrow for animals. Call us at 356-2216 to volunteer and make a difference.

Our History

Mr. Mac inspired a generation When Arthur McCormack, affectionately known as “Mr. Mac” first joined the Humane Society in 1934, he would field complaints about packs of wild dogs that roamed Diamond Head Crater and St. Louis Heights. Whether it was advocating for leash laws or dog licensing, he worked tirelessly to elevate the status of pets in the community. He inspired generations of animal lovers through nearly 50 years of dedication, including serving as the Humane Society’s executive officer from 1953 to 1969. He even lived on the grounds for many years with his wife and two children. Through wartime and into statehood, he spearheaded the organization’s animal welfare efforts. But above all, Mr. Mac was an educator. He reached out to

children on radio and television shows and visited more than 30,000 children in their classrooms each year. With his faithful dog Freckles in tow, he was a familiar figure in schools and believed that through youth and families the lives of animals could be improved. The Society continues Mr. Mac’s legacy and partners with youthoriented organizations including the YMCA and Kamaaina Kids. In the last year, the Society provided more than 300 educational program opportunities for Oahu’s community including service learning projects,

humane curriculum and speaking at school assemblies. While Mr. Mac may be gone, his legacy of educating youth and creating a more compassionate community carries on.

Students who want to help the Hawaiian Humane Society for a school or club project, or to earn volunteer and service hours, may enroll in this class. Call Education Partnerships Manager Bonnie Oda at 356-2206 for more information.

Overall, Wayne’s favorite part is seeing a patient’s face come alive with smiles when they interact with his dogs. “Just for an instant they forget about their circumstances and experience unconditional love,” he says. People-pet teams are assessed for suitability and then placed with health and senior centers that are seeking volunteers such as The Arc in Hawaii, Palolo Chinese Home and Hale Ho Aloha. Cats, birds and small pets are also welcome in the program. Call 356-2222 to get involved. 2

A year of making a difference Every year the Humane Society pushes the boundaries of possibilities. Fiscal Year 2013, which ran from July 2012 to June 2013, was marked with record-breaking pet adoptions. More animals found new families – 8,124 adoptions – than any other year in our 130-year history. This year, six Petco locations, PetSmart Mililani and Mike McKenna’s Windward Ford partnered with the Society to offer pet adoptions. In addition, Enchanted Lakes Pet Center continues to be our local pet supply partner that features animals from the Humane Society at their shop.

The store refuses to sell puppies for profit. Other annual highlights include 8,290 sterilizations, 2,790 reunions

of lost pets with their owners, as well as more than 200 education, outreach and adoptions events.

Creating community solutions to cat issues More than 125 people joined the Hawaiian Humane Society and Petco Foundation for the Cat Trap Depot at Ward Warehouse in November 2013. Attendees learned about Petco Foundation’s interest in funding feral cat solutions, successful

trapping approaches, and how to improve cat colony health. Joining the Humane Society, local rescue group representatives including Happy Cats, Cat Friends and Poi Dogs & Popoki also advocated for community collaboration. Areas


identified for 2014 community initiatives included caregiver coordination and communication as well as anti-abandonment education. To get involved, contact Community Relations Director Jacque LeBlanc at

Reaching beyond our shores While animal lovers gathered on Oahu to examine issues on Hawaii’s cat overpopulation, Hawaiian Humane Society’s President and CEO Pamela Burns was simultaneously hosting a symposium in Arizona convened by the National Pet Council on Pet Population on the nationwide issues of cats. She serves as the council’s chair. Topics included different approaches to manage free-roaming populations, understanding cat demographics, examination of case studies and more. “Communities all across the nation grapple with the same issues that Hawaii does,” says Pamela. “Bringing

Lack of specialized, high-volume sterilization options and feeding cats without sterilizing them are major barriers to reducing an estimated 315,000 outdoor cats that people do not claim as their own. Born and raised in Hawaii, Pamela Burns has served as President and CEO of the Hawaiian Humane Society since 1990. She lives in Honolulu with her cats Umi and Pili and dog Daisy. researchers and animal welfare professionals together is what can create the groundswell of activism that’s needed to address these complicated issues.”

Pam is a board member of HEMIC and past Board Chair of the Society of Animal Welfare Administrators and member of The Hawaii Employers Council.

A monthly dose of warm and fuzzy with our calendar Everyone will find a favorite within the pages of the Hawaiian Humane Society’s 2014 calendar including Carol Asai-Sato’s lovable pal Ebby who is January’s pinup pup and our hero pet for 2014. Five year-old Ebby is full of spirit and energy and owner Carol describes her as the “absolute joy of our lives.” The first

runner-up was the beautiful Makena, submitted by Karin LeBlanc followed by our third place winner, Rock, who was submitted by Shannon Geary. The votes for these beloved pets raised more than $17,000. Total raised for the animals was more than $35,000. Check out all the contestants featured on HawaiianHumane. org.

Runner-up Makena is June’s pinup pet.

There’s no place like home with your pet No one should have to choose between a roof over their head or a pet. About 375,000 dogs and cats share our lives and about 60% of Oahu’s homes have a pet. Policies that ban pets increase the number of pets relinquished to shelters, limit the pool of qualified applicants, and penalize the majority of pet owners who are responsible. The Pet Deposit Law went into effect in November 2013. The new state law allows landlords to charge an additional pet deposit equal to one month of rent and encourages them to open their rental properties to families with pets. Visit for resources for landlords and tenants.

Sometimes the Humane Society’s rescue work makes headlines. For every case that is featured in the news, there are thousands of stories that are never told. From July 2012 through June 2013, our humane investigators responded to 11,847 calls for service. Hawaii Kai Park & Ride cat shooting In December 2012, reports of cats being shot at the Park & Ride resulted in an extensive investigation and an offer of more than $4,000 in rewards. Despite canvassing, policing the area and interviewing witnesses, the case went cold. The growing cat population at the Park & Ride continues to be a concern. Teen tipster ends a Mililani dog’s suffering In January 2013, a Mililani teenager reported his concern about a friend’s family dog in which the pet’s owners claim to have “forgotten” about him

in their back yard for months. The owner was sentenced with fines, court fees, community service and prohibited from owning animals for a year. Pursuit of justice for a Haleiwa dog slain by owner In June 2013, a Haleiwa woman claimed she was “disciplining her

Pomeranians rescued in Halawa In May 2013, the Society investigated a tip about breeding dogs living in deplorable conditions in Halawa. As a result, 43 Pomeranians, mostly aged with varying health issues, were surrendered. During a two-day adoption event more than 750 prospective adopters sought to adopt these animals. A few people even spent the night to be first at the door. Report suspected abuse to us at 3562250. Every day our officers are on duty 8am to 5pm.

Lady Justice finds a new friend with the animals The Humane Society has launched a new partnership with Hawaii’s judicial system. Judge Ed Kubo’s courtroom now features a furry face during his weekly veterans court proceedings. Humane Society volunteer Ron Stebbins and his dog Athena were selected for the program. Ron is an Army veteran himself and served in the Vietnam conflict. His dog Athena was adopted from the Humane Society nearly 6 years ago and was

coincidently named after the Greek goddess of Justice. Each Friday they attend court and ease the stress of veterans. The first veterans court opened in New York in 2008. The court model is based on substance abuse or mental health treatment as an alternative to incarceration. Hawaii is the second community in the nation to feature a comfort animal as part of this program. 7

Tuning in to the Animals A round of applause for Oceanic Time Warner Cable’s employees. More than 100 participated in a service day at the Humane Society and they raised more than $4,500 for PetWalk 2013.

In the Holiday Spirit A special thanks to Helemano Farms for donating a beautiful giving tree in our adoptions center and to Fairmont Specialty employees for decorating it. Lucky 13 for the Humane Society Ollie Goldstein celebrated her 13th birthday by donating all $750 of her Bar Mitzvah money. All-Stars for the Animals Mahalo to After-School All-Stars middle school youth from Nanakuli and Waianae for spending their day learning about animal welfare, careers, advocacy and more with us.

Donation Drive Success Each year Na Hui O Wahine (Schofield Spouses Club) holds a donation drive for the animals. They collected dog and cat food, toys, treats, cleaning supplies and much more. Visit for our wish list.

Toys and Joys Eighteen local businesses and animal clinics helped to collect toys for our orphaned animals and helped make sure their holidays were merry and bright. Executive Yappy Hour The American Marketing Association held a Paw-Hana social at the Society and members volunteered their time to help with events.
