Mission: It is clear that our community needs no-cost or truly affordable spay and neuter to prevent dog and cat animal overpopulation humanely. At the present time, more than 14,000 domestic and wild animals are euthanized on the island of hawai'i each year. Thousands more are abandoned, lost or feral. Hui pono holoholona is aloha. The heart of hph will integrate a response to this situation with programs to connect humans and animals for purposes of educating the general pubic on the need to humanely stop animal overpopulation through animal sterilization, furthering additional education on proper animal care, the importance of responsible companionship, and ownership through kindness and respect. Hph will reach out to help individual members that are feeding and caring for cat colonies on a case-by-case basis by getting their cat populations sterilized.
Programs: Low cost spay/neuter funding was provided for 461 dogs and cats in 2011. From 2007 to 2011, 1908 spay/neuter surgeries have been preformed with assistance from hui pono holoholona.
