How else can you explain the less than unanimous decision by the

Board of Directors to fire the Executive Director, Sherry Hoe from her position

at the Kaua’i Humane Society. Talk about loyalty! Her “numbers” were wrong?

Are the numbers wrong because the shelter continues to operate even though

it is understaffed and underfunded? That must be why the disgruntled staff has

tied all of the yellow ribbons around the trees.

Are the numbers wrong

because Sherry and Raymond Hoe are on the verge of realizing their dream of a

beautiful new facility in Puhi for the homeless animals? That must be why this

facility was built mostly with donations and the efforts of many fund-raising


Are the numbers wrong because Sherry Hoe wanted to bring

affordable spay and neuter programs to the public? Probably. She brought in a

program where any dog or cat could be spay/neutered for less than $100. That is

ridiculously low. If you look at the prices quoted by this island’s

veterinarians you will find the price difference between the highest and lowest

is more than $100 for any dog or cat. Why doesn’t anyone question these


Sherry Hoe should not be fired for trying to get animals

spay/neutered that normally would go on adding to the animal overpopulation and

The animals of this island need our help. They need Sherry

Hoe back in the position where she can help them the most, and they need us to

speak up for them.

I agree that heads should roll. Let’s fire the

egomaniacs who removed Sherry Hoe. I have no doubt in my mind that they will be

much easier to replace.
