OUR MISSION

The Hawaiian Humane Society is dedicated to promoting the human-animal bond and the humane treatment of all animals.

OUR COMMITMENT

Hawaiian Humane Society is committed to being the animal welfare organization O‘ahu’s animals need and deserve by embracing an animal sheltering model called Socially Conscious Sheltering. With the eight tenets of Socially Conscious Sheltering as a compass, Hawaiian Humane is dedicated to fostering a culture of transparency, ethical decision making, mutual respect, continual learning and collaboration.

ABOUT US

Established in 1883, it is O‘ahu's largest animal welfare organization that is a resource for all animals.

A MESSAGE FROM ANNA If you visit our campus on any given day, you’ll see a flurry of activity: our animal care team feeding and caring for the animals, our adoptions representatives helping potential adopters, our field service officers bringing in found strays, our communications team taking videos for social media, our veterinary team providing life-saving surgeries and so much more. And, in all this activity, you are guaranteed to see one of the key reasons for our success – our volunteers. I’ve written before about how caring for our island's animals has to be a community effort, and it’s our amazing volunteers who really are the face of our animal-loving community. The range of areas they support is quite amazing (and growing). You can find our volunteers walking dogs, doing administrative work, washing laundry, bathing dogs, working with the pets of O’ahu’s unsheltered community, caring for our Petco adoption cats, staffing our pet food bank, greeting visitors, supporting our veterinary services team, gardening, providing cat enrichment, taking professional photos and fostering pets. We truly believe that volunteering not only helps the animals, but also brings joy and fulfillment to those that volunteer. Over the past two years we’ve thought a lot about how to grow and improve our volunteer program. And when some of the pandemic restrictions made it a challenge to offer our full range of volunteer opportunities for a few months, we used that time to rebuild, and have come back strong with many new and exciting opportunities for volunteering. I love that we are able to have volunteers of almost all ages support us. One of my favorite things to see is our parent-child teams at our Petco partner stores cat adoption stations. If you come at the right time, you will find them cleaning, feeding, socializing and playing with the cats. Volunteer parents tell us that

Scouts from Troop 329, including Eagle Scout candidate Kazu Kawasaki, worked to beautify one of Hawaiian Humane's gardens. See more on page 11.

their children love this experience and learn a lot from having a consistent responsibility to care for the cats. Our featured story in this edition focuses on our volunteer program: our amazing volunteers, some of the roles and how they support our mission, and how to volunteer yourself. I’m so grateful for our volunteers. They are critically important to saving lives and finding new homes for the animals, and supporting our community and families in need. As our volunteer programs grow and improve, we will continue offering you new and exciting opportunities to join our ‘ohana and make O’ahu a great place for animals and people. I hope you will enjoy all the stories in this edition. Thank you for caring about all the beautiful animals with whom we share this island.

Volunteers help make our world go ‘round! We love our volunteers and we are so grateful for the tremendous part they play in our mission to help Hawai‘i’s animals. In this article we’ll share a brief history of volunteering at Hawaiian Humane, where we are today and the very bright future we are all working toward. At our very roots we are volunteerdriven. In fact, in 1883, we were founded by 350 concerned citizens (volunteers) who understood what our volunteers today know: that to truly build a society that takes care of its animals, you need the committed involvement of community members. The pandemic of course brought shutdowns, limitations and put a pause on our plans as we had to limit the number of volunteers on campus and had

to completely close non-essential volunteer roles. But we used the opportunity to step back and evaluate our volunteer programs to ensure it was best serving our organization as well as our volunteers. Our volunteer services team, while quickly adapting to virtually supporting volunteers and recruiting for essential duties, also sought ways to provide more structure and improvements to the volunteer program as a whole. Every department also spent months updating and improving their training programs and reorganizing their volunteer roles. We also recently launched new, as well as revamped, roles such as admissions and adoptions greeters, and dispatch call center support. We know we have volunteers and potential volunteers of all ages, skills, and interests, and we want

to provide those opportunities to them, and also extend our reach with their help. Our volunteer manager, Christina Morisato, is focused on creating more volunteer opportunities for young people: “We’re excited about our plans to create more volunteer opportunities for 8 to 17-year-olds. Being able to volunteer and contribute at these ages is very important for development, and our young volunteers impress us daily with their passion and dedication to the animals. We love to see families working together. It’s a great way to bond with your children around shared giving.” We asked Ai Cheung and her daughter Bianca (12) what they like about their experience as an Offsite Cat Adoption volunteer team. Bianca first decided to volunteer when she found a book about an 11-year-old who volunteered. We asked her what she did as an offsite cat volunteer: "First, I get the keys and I let the cats sniff me, and then I check and clean the litter box, change the towel, give them treats, and replace the water and food. I also play with them." Bianca shared with us what she enjoys about volunteering to care for animals:

"This year, volunteering really changed my life. I’m a busy mom, and when Bianca brought this volunteering thing to me, I saw it was an opportunity to share time together. We are happy knowing we are helping the animals stay healthy and get adopted."

One big development we are excited about is the upcoming opening of our West O‘ahu campus. This new

We are so grateful for volunteers like Ai and Bianca! There are many visible roles for our volunteers such as dog walking or greeting, but we also have many volunteers who work in areas that the public doesn’t see. We have volunteers who do hundreds of loads of laundry, work alongside our veterinary service team, and of course, in a role that is so very critical to saving lives, fostering animals. We are so grateful for every volunteer who gives their time and shares their aloha for the

IN OUR BACKYARD

HAPPY TAILS Two “Tails” of patience and perseverance!

Gali

Gali is an 11-year-old male Airedale Terrier mix who came to the Hawaiian Humane Society in October 2020 due to trauma and neglect. Radiographs showed bruising to his lungs, moderate osteoarthritis of his joints and a healed leg fracture that had been previously fixed with a metal plate. Gali also had mild dental disease with a fractured canine tooth, ear infections and was very overweight.

After several months of searching, a family opened their hearts and home to Gali. According to his new family, he snuggled up to a new toy on his comfortable dog bed on his very first night with them. He now loves his walks around the neighborhood, playing with his

Our veterinary services team placed him on pain management medications and monitored him while his bruised lungs healed. We also treated his ear infection, and placed him on a special diet to help lower his weight and alleviate his arthritis pain. The care of a loving foster volunteer helped to improve Gali's quality of life before making him available for adoption. During that time, he would intermittently limp due to arthritis. He was treated with additional medication, which significantly helped ease his pain. Gali also lost 25 pounds, making it easier for him to get around. Gali's health eventually improved, but he was in the shelter environment for a very long time. We give animals at Hawaiian Humane as much time as they need to find the perfect home, no matter how long they’ve been with us. Team members and volunteers would spend many days sitting with him–a beloved senior dog who quickly became a team favorite. He showed affection to everyone and loved the company of all who would give it. 6 | Hawaiian Humane Society • HawaiianHumane.org

GALI


tons of toys and of course, all the pets and scratches. He also loves attention and gets very jealous and will bark if his new family is watching TV or on their phones (AKA not paying attention to HIM!). His family also reports that Gali has made an excellent beach buddy! Gali has been through a lot, but it warms our hearts to know that a family will show him the best life has to offer him in his golden years. Every dog deserves the best, and our team feels grateful to be a part of the successful bond between humans and animals.

a caring family that will show him a lifetime of love and affection. Our veterinary services team treats many animals every day. They have to make quick decisions to save as many lives as possible. Each day brings a variety of stresses involved in saving animal lives, but with that comes the reward of giving every animal a chance for happiness. Nothing beats giving animals the chance to find new families that promise to provide them lifelong care and love!

STOKER HAVING TICKS REMOVED

Stoker

Sometimes an animal needs a little extra TLC before they become available for adoption. That was especially the case for a dog found in Waianae. Stoker, a 2-year-old Pitbull Terrier mix, was covered in ticks when our field services team found him. He was in a considerable amount of pain when he came to Hawaiian Humane. Stoker was weak and frail due to anemia caused by his severe tick infestation. Although he seemed sad, he still wanted to socialize and had the spirit of a survivor. The number of ticks was in the hundreds, and our veterinary services team knew that he needed treatment immediately. His heart-wrenching condition was long and hard to treat. Although he was put on medication to help kill the ticks, our veterinary services team had to spend hours removing them by hand. Stoker had dozens of ticks per leg and an unbelievable amount in his ears.

STOKER

After all the ticks were removed, Stoker was cleaned up and given a soothing bath. His personality began to shine through almost immediately. He was interested in playing and wanted to eat like a puppy. Weak from his medical condition, he needed all the food he could get to gain back his strength. His ears and body may have been scarred, but he had such a good spirit and loved the attention from team members. Once he was on the mend, Stoker was made available for adoption. A loving family brought their dog to Hawaiian Humane to meet with Stoker and see if they would become pals. After a short warming-up period, the two dogs seemed to get along well and his new family was happy to help Stoker fully recover and become a part of their family. They didn't mind his scarred ears and body, and they loved his friendly and playful personality. Thanks to the quick action of our veterinary services team, Stoker will live a happy life with another dog and

MEWSWORTHY

Our Radiology Room is up and running! Since our last issue, our veterinary services team has been busy setting up our new radiology room and making sure staff is trained and credentialed in the new X-ray machine’s use. Now that it’s up and running, we are able to diagnose and treat animals on the spot, which significantly shortens the time it takes for an animal to receive life-changing care. We are now able to help animals in emergent need without having to transport them to another location for specialized diagnosis and medical care! Mahalo to all who supported our Spring Match Challenge, including board member Ginny Tiu, Carol and Larry Jones and an anonymous donor who all matched the $100,000 raised and made our Radiology Room possible! When asked about how the new radiology room changes their work, veterinary services manager, Tatiana Reyna-Gomez, stated, “It's cut out the middleman and it’s given the veterinarians, I think more than anything, peace of mind. Because we have more resources, we've been able to do more."

"Just last week, there was a dog that came in and we were unsure of his injury. It turned out there was a bullet in his leg, which we only found because we were able to take an X-ray. We ended up amputating his leg. The dog is doing great now and is recovering. Because we now have our own

"A few months ago we had a puppy come into the shelter who consumed a binder clip. The metal part of a binder clip got stuck in his throat. We were able to immediately get an X-ray of it, find it and take him straight into surgery to remove it. The binder clip could have killed the puppy, but the X-ray machine allowed us to move things along much more quickly to get him the care needed immediately."


Supporter Spotlight Eagle Scout candidate helps Hawaiian Humane Society improve its image The Hawaiian Humane Society’s garden area recently received a makeover thanks to the generosity of Hawai‘i Boy Scouts Troop 329, and in particular Scout Kazu Kawasaki. Kawasaki, a 17-year-old senior at Hawaii Baptist Academy and the son of Hawaiian Humane Director of Finance Laurie Kawasaki, explored project options to pursue his Eagle Scout rank, the highest rank awarded by the Boy Scouts. Upon hearing about a garden area in need of a refresh on Hawaiian Humane’s Mō‘ili‘ili campus, Kazu, who had no landscaping experience, went to examine the potential project and began to research what it might take to revive the area. “The focus of an Eagle Scout project is to demonstrate all of the leadership skills you have developed through your years of scouting experience,” explained Keith Kwan, Scoutmaster of Kazu’s Troop. “You have to plan, raise funds, and execute a service project for a nonprofit organization. The Eagle Scout candidate works with our Eagle Scout project coordinator to ensure their project is attainable based on the scout’s project plan. Still, it’s really up to the scout to develop that plan and then manage it to its successful completion.” After meeting with the Humane Society’s project manager to receive approval for his proposal, Kazu set out to meet with local landscapers and his uncle, an architectural landscaper, to gain expertise on the needs and challenges he might face. He learned about using different types and sizes of plants to create visual contrasts and integrating rocks into his design. He reached out to Leilani’s Nursery in Waimānalo and received plant donations. He also enlisted support from Jocelyn Cheng, an artist and amateur gardener who donated plants and helped at the project site.

Scout Kazu Kawasaki and Troop 329 recently gave Hawaiian Humane's garden area a beautiful makeover.

On-site labor for the project was provided by 13 other scouts and 8 adult volunteers from his troop who, under Kazu’s supervision, worked over two weekends to remove existing plants and roots, condition the soil for the new plants, and paint the fence behind the planting area. The adult Scout volunteers brought the tools needed for the project. “Volunteers are one of Hawaiian Humane’s greatest assets, and it would be nearly impossible to maintain our property at a welcoming and enjoyable level for visitors and our animals without their support. We’re grateful to Kazu and Hawaii Boy Scouts Troop 329 for their compassionate actions and for caring to make a difference,” said Anna Neubauer, President & CEO of Hawaiian Humane.

Big Hearts Help Big! In Fall 2021, we started a Volunteer of the Month program to recognize and shine a light on outstanding volunteers that go above and beyond for the animals in our care! They are nominated monthly by fellow volunteers and staff members alike for their dedication, passion and commitment to our mission. Here are a few of our outstanding volunteers who have been recognized so far!

September 2021 – Stanley S.

October 2021 – Linnelle T.

Stanley was our very first “Volunteer of the Month” in September 2021! Stanley received numerous nominations (in the form of “Ap-paws Cards”) from fellow volunteers and Hawaiian Humane staff that all spoke to his kindness, dedication to the animals and positive spirit. Below are some of the amazing things that volunteers and staff had to say about him:

Linnelle has been volunteering for several years in the Spay/Neuter Center as well as special events, laundry and more! Linnelle received numerous nominations from fellow volunteers and staff that made note of her especially kind spirit, positivity and hard work.

Dog Walker Volunteer Volunteer for over 7 years

“Stan has the magic touch when it comes to handling the dogs. I often see him interacting with timid dogs by getting down at their level and speaking compassionately to the dogs… He is patient and kind, and an all-around good human being!” “What I love about Stan is that he goes above and beyond to help the dogs that are scared, shy and timid… Such a big heart, compassion, love, and care for our animals!”

From page 11 “At first, it was challenging not knowing where to start,” said Kazu, who, after high school, plans to pursue a degree at University of Hawai‘i and to one day become a physical therapist. “I had a plan on paper, but seeing that plan turn out even better than what I had envisioned was cool. I couldn’t have done it without all 12 | Hawaiian Humane Society • HawaiianHumane.org

Spay/Neuter Clinic Volunteer Volunteer for over 16 years

"Linnelle constantly goes above and beyond what her role of a volunteer calls for. She always goes the extra mile to make sure the Spay/Neuter Center is fully stocked..." "I admire Linnelle's consistent positivity she brings every shift!" Thank you Stan and Linnelle for your unwavering dedication, love and passion for our animals!

the support from others I received. This project and my other scouting experiences have helped me to develop leadership skills and values that will help me in my future.” With volunteer leadership projects like these, there’s a bright future ahead for Hawai‘i’s youth, animals and our community.

Tod’s Ala Moana Supports PetWalk 2021!

Tod’s Ala Moana, featuring Italian-made luxury leather goods, is a long-time PetWalk supporter. This year Tod’s hosted a private shopping experience to raise funds for Hawaiian Humane and PetWalk 2021. Shoppers were hosted for lunch at Macaroni Grill where presentations were made by Tod’s & the Hawaiian Humane Society.

Deck the Howls 2021 helps make spirits bright! In early December, our education team welcomed keiki back to campus for our highly anticipated annual Deck the Howls event! Keiki grades 1-5 read their favorite stories, donated by Books4Keiki, to the animals available for adoption and helped us make spirits bright by decorating kennel cards. Reading to the animals helps to bring comfort to and reduce the anxiety of shelter pets, and it nurtures empathy in children. We saw that in action as each animal quieted down to listen to the stories being read. It warmed our hearts to see even the most rambunctious dogs with their head on paws, listening intently. Our Teens4Animals Council volunteered at the event to make sure everything ran smoothly. Mahalo to all the families and volunteers that made Deck the Howls such a success this holiday season!

Teens4Animals Council member finds a new feline best friend “Aloha! My name is Kylie and I’m a part of the Teens4Animals Council at Hawaiian Humane! I love the community events and the support we are able to provide for other animal lovers and pet owners. At our most recent event, Deck the Howls, keiki came to campus to read books to the animals to spread the holiday cheer! I assisted with the sign in-table and afterwards, I was able to go into the cat houses to monitor the kids (and see the cats!). While there, I fell in love with my new friend, Brutus. I knew I couldn't leave without him, so I returned the very next day to adopt him and give him a forever home! Brutus has already found comfort in his new home and there are many animals that could find comfort with you! Adopting Brutus was probably one of the best things that happened for me this year because he brings so much joy to me and my family. Hawaiian Humane provides many services to people and their animals and I am so happy to be part of their Teens4 Animals Council! I am grateful to Hawaiian Humane for providing us teens great experiences and the chance to interact with animals, and the community. I would definitely recommend joining Teens4Animals to any animal-loving teen that is willing to put in some work!” Paw Prints | 15

WAGGIN’ TALES In October 2021, we were in urgent need of towels for our animal care, veterinary services and adoptions teams and Hilton Hawaii not only heard our call, but also took action by donating 250 towels to our shelter! Towels are frequently used to clean, shelter and help pets stay comfortable and warm while recovering from surgery. Mahalo to Hilton Hawaii for stepping up for our island’s animals in need!

It’s an easy way to support us and it’s a tax savings for you when you rollover your IRA distribution directly to Hawaiian Humane Society.

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.
