July – September 2013

130 years of service to animals and people On July 24, 1883 the Hawaiian Humane Society was born from a small gathering of citizen advocates who believed a dedicated and organized effort was needed to improve the lives of animals. King Kalakaua was one of these founders.

In September 1883 the Saturday Press reported: “Captain Mehrtens of the police has been appointed special agent of the Humane Society. It is difficult to understand how he can be an efficient policeman and still have time to work up cases of cruelty. It is hoped that he will bridge this difficulty and render effective service in this noble cause in which he is engaged.” From its first cases of neglected cattle and beaten horses in the late 1800s to the Waimanalo puppy mill case of 2011, the Humane Society’s mission has remained steadfast: to promote the human-animal bond and humane treatment of all animals.

The Society has always been about people as much as animals. In the early 1900s, the humane treatment of women, children and the mentally ill were also a part of the organization’s mission. Early humane agents visited mistreated children and removed them from their homes if necessary. Such was the case of a 3-year-old girl who was neglected and given alcohol by her mother. Children were adopted from the Humane Society and placed with loving families. Agents also escorted young women out of bars and brothels and into reform facilities. Continued on page 3

President’s Message Successful session results in passage of key bills Strengthening Hawaii’s laws has always been a priority for the Humane Society. Several animal-related bills at this year’s legislative session are likely to become law. The snare bill establishes mandatory reporting of cats and dogs captured in a snare or trap to the county’s animal services agency. It also prohibits the use of snares, conibears, steel-jawed traps, and foot- and leg-hold traps in residential areas.

In April, the Hawaiian Humane Society rescued a cat in Mililani that had suffered from such a device. These snares and traps are archaic, inhumane and are not currently in use by any state or federal agency. They are prohibited in a number of states. The animal prohibition bill establishes a mandatory prohibition on those convicted of first degree animal cruelty. It will ensure Pamela Burns President and CEO

43 dogs rescued from Halawa home On May 14, 2013, the Hawaiian Humane Society investigated a tip about dogs living in deplorable conditions. As a result, 43 Pomeranian dogs were surrendered to our care from a Halawa breeder. Although the dogs came in with a number of health-related issues and severe matting, all of the dogs have now found new adoptive homes. A

few dogs required extensive health care and monitoring and as a result, were cared for in foster homes. Following the rescue thousands of calls flooded the Humane Society from those wishing to adopt. The Society hosted a two-day adoptions event, opening its doors early to those interested. More than 750 prospective adopters attended,

with some camping out in front of the Humane Society overnight. In order to ensure all those interested had a fair chance, the Society used a numbered ticket system. The numbers were drawn randomly. This process enabled those with the lucky number to have first choice to adopt. Each family was required to meet with an adoptions advisor to ensure they were ready for a lifelong commitment. Many of the dogs were older than 10 years old. The last Pomeranian found a loving family at the June 16 “Who’s Your Daddy?” adoptions event sponsored by Mike McKenna’s Windward Ford. In addition more than 10 other shelter dogs and kittens found families that day. The Halawa rescue sheds light on the need to require inspection of the living conditions of high volume commercial breeders. For two years consecutively, legislative proposals to regulate large commercial breeding operations in Hawaii have failed.

Humane Society investigators found 43 Pomeranian dogs living in deplorable conditions.

Successful session results in passage of key bills Continued from page 1 that those convicted of cruelty to animals will not be able to own their own pet for a period of time.

A bill to regulate commercial breeding operations proposed by the Prosector’s office did not pass this session.

We believe that pet owners will now have more housing opportunities because of the pet deposit bill, which allows for a landlord and tenant to negotiate a pet security in an amount not to exceed one month’s rent. 2

The mandatory sentencing bill makes animal cruelty a felony crime when 10 or more pet animals are involved. And, lastly, the victim restitution bill will allow for organizations such as ours, involved in animal cruelty cases, to recoup expenses in caring for the abused. Mahalo to all who supported with testimony to give the animals a voice.

130 years of service to animals and people Continued from page 1 In the 1930s the Humane Society advocated for organizations and efforts devoted entirely to social services so that the Society could focus on animal issues. Animal advocate Helen Kinau Wilder of the prominent Wilder family was the Society’s first deputized officer. The responsibilities of rescue and protection were no longer assigned to the Honolulu Police Department. Her work, and that of the first full-time humane investigator Chang Apana was groundbreaking. Other humane officers such as Rose Davison and Lucy Ward found themselves in the thick of cruelty: chasing dog poisoners, solving a case of a horse dragged by its neck and thrown off a 100-foot cliff and advocating for the protection of overworked, starving and injured animals and transport of livestock on ships. Finding a need to house the growing number of homeless dogs and cats,

the first animal shelter was built in 1925 at Pohukaina and Koula Streets in Kakaako through land donated by Victoria Ward. More than 5,000 cats and dogs arrived in its first year. By 1938 the Humane Society had outgrown its Kakaako shelter and moved to Moiliili, a neighborhood where it remains today. The initial location on Kalele Street housed 13 cat pens and kennel space for 115 dogs and averaged about 1,000 visitors every month. Victoria Ward’s daughter Lucy Ward served as a humane investigator and later became the organization’s executive The public now had a officer. Honolulu Star-Bulletin followed her fight against permanent home for cruelty and in 1914 reported on her man hunt to find lost pets, adoptions, dog poisoners: “Miss Lucy Ward has commenced an or to surrender sick or investigation with the Honolulu Police to find a dog poisoner whose working resulted in six deaths. Miss Ward declares injured animals. The that such a person should immediately be placed in jail.” shelter was relocated to its present location in The Society’s mission requires the early 1940s as the Kalele quarry much more than operating a became valuable to the war effort. quality shelter. Programs such as microchipping, sterilization, foster care, pet visitation and a pet food bank were developed as a result of the organization’s commitment to education, advocacy and outreach. Continuing to protect the most vulnerable remains at the forefront. Current services and programs are a reflection of the changing needs of our community and continued growth of the organization is inevitable with over 60% of Oahu households now residing with pets. The Humane Society’s team of about 75 professionals and 600 volunteers is excited about what the future will bring in service to animals and people. 3

Investigators respond to horse neglect case In February, the Hawaiian Humane Society was called to a case in Kunia involving three horses. Two out of the three horses were severely underweight. The owner had recently started an unauthorized “horse rescue program” but was unable to provide adequate food and veterinary care. Our investigators negotiated a surrender for two of the horses and arranged for immediate transport to a private boarding facility in Barber’s Point. We asked Dr. Manny

Himenes, an equine veterinarian, to evaluate both horses, and unfortunately, one horse had to be euthanized. The other was placed on a strict feeding schedule and was adopted and is doing well. The owner was given an animal cruelty warning citation for all three horses that mandated following a veterinarian recommended feeding schedule for the remaining horse. The owner also agreed to regular unannounced inspections by our humane investigators.

Every dog has its day: opt to adopt Paris Hilton’s pet store puppy may have been in vogue years ago, but was rife with controversy once it was discovered her dog darling was from a puppy mill. Flash forward a couple of years and celebrities are now ga ga over shelter pets. Today’s madness is all about the mutt. “Hawaii’s people have long regarded the power of the poi dog,” says Hawaiian Humane Society’s community relations director Jacque LeBlanc. “Whether they’re called hapa-heritage dogs or designer dogs, mixed breeds charm us like no others.” The Society has seen its dog adoptions rise from about 2,500 in 2009 to 4,500 in 2012. A number of factors support the emerging trend. Hollywood celebrities like George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, Oprah Winfrey, Ryan Gosling, Drew Barrymore and Hawaii’s own Carrie Ann Inaba are advocates for shelter adoption – declaring that “rescue” is their favorite breed. Growing awareness of the plight of pet overpopulation and homeless animals has elevated the cause, along with lifestyle movements that foster an appreciation for a life of less excess and waste. Why spend thousands of dollars to obtain a furry friend when thousands of animals await loving homes?

More than 100 animals seek families at the Hawaiian Humane Society every day.

Humane Society. Adoptions are held at six PETCO locations on Oahu and at PetSmart in Mililani. Many celebrities, and the general public, realize that purchasing purebred puppies from a store rather than a reputable breeder may fuel an industry that caters to the bottom line and not the welfare of those animals.

No longer is it a must to have or seek out that purebred companion. A loving addition to the family can come in many forms. “People are looking to make a connection Photo by wag and snap photography with an animal, which instead, choose to partner with local isn’t necessarily tied to a pet shelters to sponsor pet adoption particular breed,” says LeBlanc. events.

Helping the lost find their way home A lost or missing pet is a traumatic occurrence for both owners and animals alike. For the lucky, more than 3,000 find their way home every year. Nearly all of these family reunions are because pet parents armed their furry family members with an ID.

and cast his flashlight back and forth in search of the animal. That’s when he spotted an injured, shivering dog submerged up to her neck in water, which was caused by heavy rains. Shuggie’s little metallic ID tag attached to her collar flickered in the light. She was hoisted to safety and went home that day to her family.

In January, dogs Lizzie and Kabuki escaped from their home and ventured up a Waialae hillside and got lost in dense brush and pouring rain. Our investigators climbed slippery rocks – falling in sink holes with no visible ground – to save the exhausted dogs who had ascended a slope they couldn’t back track. There was one singular thought that both rescuers shared, “I hope these dogs have ID.”

We’ll never be able to teach our pets how to find their way home. It’s up to pet owners to ensure pets are always dressed with a collar and ID tag. Licensing dogs will identify the legal ownership of an animal on Oahu. Additionally, although microchips never need to be replaced, it is important to keep your microchip contact information updated with the Humane Society in order to ensure your pet’s quick return.

The dogs were rescued. Although they had no collars or tags, they did have microchips, which identified them as 4-year old Lizzie and 9-year old Kabuki. Both went home later that day.

Meanwhile, 20 miles away in Ewa another rescue was in progress. Frightened by a leaf blower, Shuggie bolted from home and headed down Fort Weaver Road. Heartbroken and desperate, the Mink family had canvassed the area to search for the missing pet to no avail. That’s when the Humane Society got the call from the Honolulu Police Department. A dog had been struck by a car and he slipped down a storm drain. As our rescuer descended in to the drain, he muttered a short prayer, “Please let this dog be alive and with ID.” Our rescuer dropped 8 feet underground

Summer shines on the animals Summer is a time for adventure and is a great season to spend more time with the animals. Whether it’s sharing a nap with your cat in their favorite sunny spot or taking your dog on a hike, there’s nothing like summer to bond with those who love you so. Visit for a list of dog-friendly beaches and parks. And, if you see dogs in hot cars, go to nearby businesses to ask for assistance to find the pet owner, or call 911 immediately. Cars in the summer time can heat up quickly. 7

More than 5,000 missing lost and found animal reports are filed with the Hawaiian Humane Society every year. Let this be the year when every lost pet finds his way home.

PetSmart Charities fund $35,000 partnership to sterilize community cats The Hawaiian Humane Society and Cat Friends have teamed up to help community cats. The goal is to perform 1,000 free feral feline sterilizations to cats residing in zip code 96819. And that includes several neighborhoods outside of Kalihi including Mapunapuna, Sand Island and parts of Moanalua. All sterilizations will be performed at Cat Friends clinic on School Street throughout 2013. Community cats are free roaming, feral or abandoned felines that share our neighborhoods. Every cat deserves a lap and those that don’t, need our help. Visit to borrow a humane trap and learn more about Trap, Neuter, Return and Manage.
