Animal Balance clinic moves to Kilauea

KILAUEA — Animal Balance, the nonprofit on island doing a spay and neuter campaign for cats, wrapped up their clinic in Kapaa Friday and volunteers are now in Kilauea at a private residence.

Organizer Elsa Kohlbus said their first week at Kapaa’s All Saints Church was a success.

Animal Balance volunteers completed 545 surgeries in that first segment of the clinic, which started Sept. 3.

“The local volunteers are amazing,” she said Monday.

Kauai Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Alley Cat Allies supported the clinic.

Those interested in cat surgeries should email to schedule an appointment and with it comes directions for a drop-off point for cats as the clinic is hosted at a private Kilauea residence.

    We are staying at HRB and there is a very friendly non feral cat that is hanging arou. It’s ear is not notched and appears to be young so do not believe it is fixed. What is the process?

    Regardless on how many cats get neutered, then released into the wild so it can continue to kill off native birds makes no sense. Feral cats should be put in cages and thrown into the ocean to drown and feed the crabs in order for native birds to exist without going extinct.

    Cats are a dime a dozen and breed like rabbits.
