HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Hawaiian Humane Society is asking the public to help find cats and kittens in their care a loving home.
“We are peak kitten season right now and Hawaiian Humane needs all the help we can get,” said Thomas Hanns the communication coordinator with Hawaiian Humane Society.
He said this kitten season is leaving them swamped with close to 200 kittens.
“We have over 180 kittens that are in foster care homes around the island,” said Hanns.
The Hawaiian Humane Society is doing an adoption special through the end of the month where all cats and dogs are 50% off and all small animals have their adoption fees waived.
“Currently, we are filled to the brim with animals, and we would love the community’s support,” said Hanns.
You can browse dogs and cats up for adoption on their website, which is updated in real-time. Hawaiian Humane’s adoption center is open Tuesday – Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“We are urging that people adopt and do not surrender any pets during this time except in emergency situations,” said Hanns.
Pet relinquishments through their Admissions Center are currently on an appointment basis only and they are booked until the end of the month.
Owning a pet is a big responsibility for families. A dog or cat can live well beyond 10 years and the person who adopted them are responsible to maintain their care.
