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


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.


The Hawaiian Humane Society is a non-profit education and advocacy organization that shelters, protects, rescues, reunites and rehomes animals. Established in 1883, it is O‘ahu's largest animal welfare organization that is a resource for all animals. Hawaiian Humane Society is not a chapter of any group as there is no national humane society. Visit for more information. 2 | Hawaiian Humane Society •

Paw Prints is published quarterly by Hawaiian Humane Society, 2700 Waialae Ave. Honolulu, HI 96826. Issued 10/1/2022 (FY23-2).

A MESSAGE FROM ANNA All of Hawaiian Humane Society’s staff and volunteers play a variety of roles in support of our broad scope of work. That diversity is one of the joys of working for an organization that is active in serving our community every single day. My role is no exception, but unlike our field services team, I don’t often get directly involved in animal rescues. On a recent weekend, however, I got to experience the intense reward of personally helping an individual animal in distress, just as good Samaritans do in our community every day. On the way to the windward side of O‘ahu with my family, we spotted a dog running along the side of the road. Seeing no human nearby, we pulled over and my daughter and I leapt out to try and secure the dog. The young, medium-sized dog was very scared, so my husband and son stayed in the car to minimize the number of people confronting the pretty, black hound mix. My daughter got to exercise her animal body language and handling skills, and stuck with me through the entire process. We had snacks in the car and ample amounts of meat and cheese were employed in winning the trust of the young dog. My daughter volunteered her belt as a makeshift collar and leash. Once we had the sweet girl secured, we called our dispatch number and humane investigator Audrey Foster drove out to scan the dog and, finding no microchip, took her back to campus for care. Now named Ellie – though we considered “Prosciutto” after her fondness for our snacks – she was awaiting spay surgery at the time of writing this letter for publication. This experience, and especially being able to work with my daughter to help an animal in need, was a profoundly moving one for my family. But it was no

different from the acts of compassion that result in so many animals being rescued from danger. Members of our community, perhaps even you who are reading this right now, have had this same experience. You help to rescue animals in distress and get them back to their owners, or into our care. You show love and compassion to the lost and abandoned every day. And so does our staff. Being able to be a part of the work our team does every day was and is a gift. Creating a Socially Conscious Animal Community requires that we all work together to help animals and pet owners in need. As we celebrate animal welfare best practices in this issue of Paw Prints, I am excited for our future. With your help, I know Ellie will be joined by so many more animals who are met with compassion in their time of need. Mahalo for your commitment to protecting our fellow creatures.

Best Practices lead to the best outcomes! Animal welfare is an ever-evolving, ever-innovating world that is continuously improving upon itself in order to make the world a better, more humane place for pets (and people) to live. As we strive to create a truly humane society here on O‘ahu, nation and industry-wide best practices are the benchmarks we aim for across all facets of our organization, from animal care and veterinary services, to volunteer programs and community engagement. Below are just a few key areas where we have implemented animal welfare best practices this past year. Kitten Season Preparation and Community Support Kitten Season is a time of year known to animal welfare organizations across the country when the weather gets warmer and cats on the landscape begin

Animal Care Best Practice: What is a Kuranda bed? A Kuranda bed is a dog bed that is created specifically for dogs in a shelter environment. This bed is made of durable (read: chewresistant!) materials that are easy to clean, keeping our dogs off of the floor and in comfortable, sanitary conditions. Kuranda beds can be donated to Hawaiian Humane by visiting the link on our wish list at HawaiianHumane. org/Wishlist.

to reproduce. This consequently leads to dramatic increases in the number of kittens admitted to the shelter. This year, we took a good, hard look at how we were preparing as a shelter, as well as the ways we were supporting the community, and how we could improve. We started with revamping our educational materials and resources to support people and animals in the community. We created high-impact and easy-to-follow visuals for physical distribution as well as use on our website and social media platforms. We also reevaluated and ramped up the contents of our Kitten Kits. These were made available to the public at no cost and enabled concerned community members to easily provide in-home care for found kittens until they were able to be admitted to the shelter for spay/neuter and adoption. Foster Care Training and Events Fostering a pet helps keep the shelter population low and helps the pets in our care get ready for adoption, especially the ones that need just a little extra TLC. This year during National Foster a Pet Month, we partnered with our friends at Petco Love to host our very first series of Foster Care Open Houses. Interested community members were invited to campus to learn more about our foster program and what it means to be a foster pet parent, chat with staff and current foster volunteers, meet kittens currently available for foster, and much more.

The turnout was remarkable! We welcomed 25 new foster care volunteers to our program and placed 32 kittens into loving foster homes JUST through the weekend event! We also recently launched our Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, which is a group of volunteers focused on helping us care for neonate kittens. From fostering a neonate kitten with a hui of friends, to rallying a supply drive, to spreading the word, the Itty Bitty Kitty Committee is trained and dedicated to supporting this especially vulnerable population. In August, we hosted our first Neonate Foster Care Training for those interested in joining the IBKC. 40 members of our animal-loving community attended the training to learn how to care for neonate kittens and even got hands-on practice feeding bottle babies!

Animal Care Best Practice: Why do we ask for donations of shoe/small cardboard boxes? Cardboard boxes help improve cat welfare in the shelter environment by providing hiding places/safe spaces and reducing stressful exposure to stimuli.

Although this costs roughly $65,000 per year to provide, it prevents the spread of common diseases and keeps our shelter population safe and healthy!

HAPPY TAILS A harrowing rescue leads to the sweetest reunion for Sophia and family! One beautiful day in August, Jacquie and a couple of her friends were looking for dolphins a mile off the coast of Hawaii Kai. They were enjoying the waves and keeping a keen eye for marine life when one of Jacquie’s friends spotted what appeared to be a “white piece of meat,” as she described it, floating in the 60-foot deep ocean water. Jacquie looked closer and realized that it was actually a cat, trying with all its might to keep its head above the waves. It was clearly struggling and exhausted. Jacquie and her crew of caring individuals immediately jumped into action. They scooped up the frightened cat from the side of their boat. The poor creature was so shaken that it was challenging to get it on the boat, but the cat immediately collapsed from exhaustion once it was safely aboard. Jacquie could tell that it was a fighter. As anyone would be, Jacquie was confused about how a cat was so far out into the ocean. She was even more shocked to find it alive. Jacquie realized the cat probably needed medical attention and wanted to save its life. She got a cat

A pet microchip is a small device that holds a unique ID number for your pet. It is required across the state of Hawai’i that all owned cats and dogs have a microchip registered with the owner’s current contact information. A microchip is no larger than a grain of rice and is inserted under the skin between the shoulder blades. A microchip is only as good as the information registered to the associated ID number, which can be read by an animal welfare organization or veterinary center with a microchip scanning device. It is the quickest Sophia's loving family.

carrier from her local pet store and took the cat immediately to our Admissions Center. Our veterinary services team took immediate action to see if the cat needed any emergency medical attention. Fortunately, aside from being highly stressed and fatigued, she was not found to have any significant medical issues. Soon after, this lucky cat was evaluated and scanned for a microchip.

and most efficient way to be reunited with your pet should they get lost.

her cat was found, she rushed to Hawaiian Humane and Sophia was quickly reunited with her family.

This lucky cat not only had a microchip but was also currently registered to someone who lived in Hawaii Kai! We discovered the cat’s name was Sophia and we immediately contacted Jon and Noosha, the registered owners. When Noosha received the call, she was shocked. She had been desperately looking for Sophia with her husband and son for over two months. Their family adopted Sophia in July 2020.

This reunion came at a time when they needed it most. Around the time that Sophia escaped, Noosha was diagnosed with an illness requiring a long and difficult recovery. She was scheduled to begin treatment the week Sophia was found. Their family is now whole again, and they can work on healing together.

Jon said that Noosha and their son tirelessly looked for Sophia when she went missing. They used community apps and even put up "Missing!" posters around their neighborhood. So as soon as Noosha was notified by us that

Jon says Sophia is no longer interested in going outside, and is content with cuddling with his son and playing with Noosha. We send a heartfelt mahalo to the good Samaritans who saved this cat from the ocean’s depths and reunited her with a family that missed and needed her dearly.

Advocacy update: Visiting Veterinarians bill passes into law! Act 71 (formerly SB2798) formally became law on June 17, 2022, and authorizes the Hawai‘i Board of Veterinary Medicine to grant temporary courtesy and relief permits for outof-state veterinarians, permits licensed veterinarians to practice veterinary telemedicine and allows for international veterinary school graduates to qualify for the licensure examination. This measure gives state regulators the ability to ensure that out-of-state veterinarians who want to practice temporarily in Hawai‘i are qualified to do so. Visiting

veterinarians provide vital services including assistance with animal rescues and disaster response; high-quality, high-volume spay/neuter; relief for private-practice and shelter veterinarians; and access to specialties unavailable in the state. Thank you to our steadfast community of animal advocates who helped make this possible!

More than a trend,

TikTok powers community engagement! At the tail end of 2021, Hawaiian Humane jumped on the bandwagon, so to speak, and joined the masses on TikTok! While it is undoubtedly the hottest new app out there, TikTok is more than just a trendy Gen-Z video sharing app – it is also an incredibly powerful tool for marketing and communications that allows for deeper community engagement and community expansion! We are able to strategically create original content that relates to trending topics or audio clips, connecting us to a worldwide audience of animal lovers and supporters of our cause. In the 10 months since the launch of our account, we have gained 40.8K followers and our videos have been collectively viewed 16.3 million times! Through this platform, we have built relationships with other animal welfare organizations across the country and caught the attention of online influencers and companies such as Bretman Rock, EJ Marcus, Barkbox, and more! Most importantly, our content has resulted in tangible, almost immediate results for those who matter most – the animals in our care!

One of many examples is Billy, a sweet but shy pit bull mix, who was a long-stay resident of our adoption center, and just needed a family to give him a chance to come out of his shell. We decided to feature Billy in a 3-part video series on TikTok, showcasing his personality and desire to find a new home. Billy’s first video tugged hard on the heartstrings and immediately went viral, garnering over 5.1 million views, over 626K likes and 2,600 comments of followers sending well wishes to Billy and asking for updates on his journey! Billy’s second video was viewed over 500K times, and caught the eye of a family who immediately fell in love with him through the screen and commented that they wanted to adopt. The couple came to visit Billy in person the very next day and made it official – Billy was adopted thanks to the power of social media! We updated our TikTok community on Billy’s adoption in the third and final video, much to the delight of 90K likes and 818 happy commenters. Be sure to follow all of our social channels for more stories like Billy’s, updates on Hawaiian Humane happenings, upcoming events and more! You can find us on TikTok as @HawaiianHumane.

New tools to help pets see faster relief Imagine that feeling you get when there’s a hair or eyelash in your eye. It’s usually quite unpleasant, even mildly painful, but you’re able to wipe it away or flush your eye with water for relief. For a cat or dog, keeping the hair out of their eyes is a bit harder, especially if they have a congenital condition with their upper eyelid called eyelid agenesis. Eyelid agenesis is a condition in cats where they are born without proper eyelids. It usually affects the upper eyelid, causing fur from the face to come in direct contact with the cornea. Not only is this

uncomfortable, but it can also cause corneal ulcers and other, more serious, problems with their vision. The most effective way to treat this issue is to perform a surgery called cryoepilation. This safe and effective procedure freezes and destroys the hair follicles surrounding the eye so they will not grow back and cause discomfort and secondary complications. Until recently, animals with this condition at Hawaiian Humane would have to be sent to an outside veterinary ophthalmologist, a veterinarian specializing in treating conditions with the eyes. This took time and created logistical challenges due to the time and coordination it takes to outsource surgeries and medical procedures. But that all changed recently, to the relief and excitement of our veterinary services team!

now perform cryoepilation right here in our own shelter veterinary center without having to transport animals to a specialist! This allows us to get cats with eyelid agenesis treatment and relief faster. Having the tools necessary to perform specific surgeries for conditions we see regularly, as well as reduce recovery time needed post-surgery, helps the animals in our care get on the road to adoption and into loving homes much more quickly!

We are happy to announce that thanks to several donors, we can

WAGGIN’ TALES Recently in August, 40 students from Hawai'i Baptist Academy had the opportunity to visit our campus, meet our adoptable animals, and complete a service learning project!

They also worked on a service learning project creating dog and cat toys, as well as creating drawings encouraging visitors to adopt.

Supporter Spotlight Bob Bean supports our future with planned giving When long-time supporter and board member Bob Bean first stepped onto our Mō'ili'ili campus in 2007, his first impressions of the shelter were a bit unsettling. “The facilities needed some major updates and improvements in order for the animals to live more comfortably in Hawai‘i’s warm climate," he said. Since then, Hawaiian Humane Society has made many improvements and has grown to serve and find loving homes for almost 22,000 animals per year, provide comprehensive community education programs, and tend to community needs through our Ginny Tiu Community Spay/Neuter Center, and outreach efforts through the Pet Kōkua program. These services and programs will grow even more when we open our West O'ahu campus in Spring 2023. It’s this type of innovation and progress that Bob had in mind when he decided to become a member of the Helen Kīna‘u Wilder Legacy Society several years ago. Named in honor of animal rights advocate and Hawai'i’s first female police officer, the Helen Kīna‘u Wilder Legacy Society honors and thanks those who include Hawaiian Humane Society in their planned giving. Serving on our board of directors since 2007 and recently named Director Emeritus, Bob knows the enormous amount of funding and resources needed to serve the animals and people of O'ahu.

up, placed into foster care, and supported to find a new loving home. Animal lovers since childhood, and experienced pet-owners themselves, Bob and his wife Frances became active in their work with Hawaiian Humane through their connections with other board members and spending time with former President and CEO Pamela Burns. As pet parents to pup Charlie, Bob and Frances reflect on the importance of pet owners ensuring that preparations for their beloved animals are considered in their estate planning. “Pets are an important part in the lives of our kūpuna for so many reasons. Providing companionship, purpose and love – it’s crucial that we all have a plan to provide for our pets after we are gone," said Bob. To learn more about planned giving, the Forever Loved Pet Program, or the Helen Kīna‘u Wilder Legacy Society, please contact our Manager of Major Gifts and Planned Giving, Jennifer Bauer, at 808-356-2252 or via email at

“The Hawaiian Humane Society and other animal welfare organizations do a lot for our society. Planned Giving is a great way to help sustain these important causes and give animals a voice," said Bob. One of the reasons donors reach out to us to initiate planned giving is so that they can provide arrangements for their beloved pets in the event of their passing. The Hawaiian Humane Society offers a program called Forever Loved, where owners can make special arrangements for their pet to be picked

Keep pets safe during upcoming holidays We say it every year, but it’s worth repeating. As we gear up for the holiday season, don’t forget to keep pet safety top of mind! The end of the year is a time for joy and fun. From Halloween’s delicious candy and Thanksgiving’s decadent meals, to the delight of unwrapping presents for the holidays – all these fun family activities can turn sour if your pet gets into something they are not supposed to. Prevention is the best way to keep your pet safe, and it’s important to remember to be mindful of activities that can pose a greater risk to your pets. Follow some of our basic pet safety tips to help limit holiday hazards during joyous celebrations. Halloween means candy and costumes. Kids love to collect candy from school or neighbors to eat and share with friends. Although sharing is a positive lesson to learn, teach them never to give candy to pets. Candy should be stored in a pet-proof place and not left around for the curious snouts to sneak a treat. If you don’t want your furry friend to miss out on all the fun, pick up some petfriendly holiday-themed treats from your local pet store, or bake your own (see page 9)! If your pet is overly anxious or frightened by the doorbell, or even people in Halloween costumes, ensure they have a safe space to stay until the festivities are over. This reduces the stress and overstimulation a pet may experience. The spooky season may be fun for people, but can be a traumatizing experience for pets. Thanksgiving is a great way to get together with extended family,

enjoy a meaningful meal, and express gratitude for each other. Keep a careful eye on your pets during holiday feasts. Fatty and sweet treats can make your pet ill and cause potentially 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 keep wrapped gifts out of reach and dispose of bows and ribbons immediately after unwrapping. If ingested, string and ribbon can block your pet's digestive system, potentially resulting in the need for expensive surgeries. Even the most wellbehaved pets are tempted to play with ornaments and tinsel, so be sure to pet-proof your décor, and don't forget to secure your Christmas trees properly to prevent them from falling over! New Year’s Eve in Hawai‘i is both memorable and exciting. Plenty of families go to see planned fireworks displays, and it’s no secret that unplanned fireworks can be expected islandwide. However, pets and fireworks have never been a good combination. The loud booms and flashing lights of fireworks can scare pets into running away, and they can even jump high fences when frightened. Keep your companion animal in a safe place indoors, and do not leave your pet unattended outside, especially in the days/evenings leading up to the new year. 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. Accidents can happen even if you take every precaution to ensure your pet is safe. If your pet is injured or displaying abnormal behavior, contact your veterinarian right away and know where to take your pet for emergency services. If you find a lost pet, bring them to Hawaiian Humane Society's Admissions Center, where they can be reunited with their owners. Immediately call Hawaiian Humane at 808-356-2228 if your pet is lost and file a Lost Pet Report. You may also fill out a report at Keep these holiday tips in mind when planning your holiday celebrations.
