That Hawaii Island Humane Society has killed 10k animals for over 10 years in a row. They have been given the tools at no charge to stop killing innocent wanted animals by working with rescues and transferring the animals to mainland shelters and forever families. The Executive Director and the Board of Directors CHOSE to kill those wanted pets instead. How the heck do people get upset when one animal is abused, but when the ones charged with protecting the animals betray all our trust and slaughter them, and no one cares? If you care, there are alternatives! According to the HIHS ED they are compensated by $2million in tax dollars to kill animals, but take a loss of $250 for every animal adopted. The staff is great, the leaders need a moral compass.
Just a note to thank the people at the Hilo Humane Society for getting our son the most lovely dog after he had just had to put his own dog Dakota down. Cary Branch our son brought home his new daughter Alice last Saturday. She is such a love and so spoiled. She now has the best home she could ever have. She is a lap dog now, all 48 pounds of her. The look in her eyes when she looks at him is amazing. She loves the golf cart and loves to walk. I will try and send you a photo. Keep up the good work. Our Humane society on Maui is also wonderful. Thank you all for doing such a great job finding all these precious animals a home.Aloha and Mahalo
