This is amazing! A huge mahalo to everyone who made this possible for these sweet dogs and cats! This brought tears to my eyes.
Great that so many came together for the love of animals. Wonderful work!
AWESOME JOB! Huge mahalo’s to ALL involved.
And a big shout out to Mirah Horowitz for turning KHS around! People used to so hesitate taking animals to the shelter knowing there was a good chance they’d be euthanized in a very short time. You’ve done an amazing job on behalf of our critters! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
wonder how the homeless people feel about this….pets, worth more than humans
Is homelessness a top concern for you? What do you normally do about it on a daily basis? Also, why can’t other people have concerns of their own?
I certainly hope it isn’t too lonely at the top of your moral mountain.
What a sad and unfortunate attitude you have. Animals are helpless and fully rely on saviors like these people, to save their lives sometimes, most of the time. Most of the animals in these shelters are there BECAUSE of people as well. Before you make such a judgmental, shallow, and selfish comment, perhaps you should educate yourself on the active programs on the islands for the homeless and all that is done 365 days per year, while asking nothing in return, to get them off of the streets. I work at one of those very facilities, and trust me, the animals of Hawaii need and deserve our help more. Shame on you, why not get out and volunteer instead? Thank you.
Awesome! These animals will be making many people very happy. Good job KHS!
Such awesome, uplifting news! And to the negative comment about how homeless people would feel, well I’m sure if they love animals they would feel as equally grateful for these poor creatures. LIghten up, pets ARE worth more than some people on this planet.
My beloved Massachusetts’ cats, Lava & Hina, were adopted as kittens from KHS and transported by me December 2018. I am thrilled to see this story. Wishing Mirah, staff and volunteers kudos for their efforts. During these challenging times, we need more uplifting stories like these.
