I can't recommend HIHS highly enough. I was visiting Kona a couple weeks ago, staying at a friend's house. The less-than-friendly neighbor next door had several older dogs and at least 5 puppies running all over the neighborhood. The pups couldn't have been more than 10 weeks old and were already frightened of people- they hadn't been socialized at all. But they were adorable and with effort I managed to get them to come over and say hello. Once one had decided I was all right the rest just piled on. There was a momentary flurry of furry puppy happiness- they were licking my chin, eating my hair, rolling over for tummy rubs, and collapsing in my lap. Then I realized these poor pups were covered in fleas and sores and had no collars, and getting a good look at the other dogs, I noticed they were in advanced stages of mange. I called the Society and was told they do visits, so I gave them the address. Today, less than two weeks later, I got a call from the officer who had performed the conditions check. He told me the owner had surrendered all the pups on the spot and had been given a notice to comply to get his other dogs licenses and medical treatment. The pups are all up for adoption and being furry Golden retriever mixes I am sure they will all find loving homes. HI Humane Society just made my year! I just gave them a donation for their efforts and I hope, perhaps later at end of year time, others will do the same.
