Hawaiian Humane Society finds homes for dogs rescued from squalid van

Local News

Four dogs are in safer hands after the Hawaiian Humane Society rescued them following a report that they were living in squalor.

The non-profit went to check out the reported scene and found four dogs in an abandoned van filled with trash, feces and insects.

The organization says the dogs suffered from various skin conditions, mange, fleas and ticks.

“It was just not a good place for animals so we went to check and talk to the owners,” said communication and events coordinator Susan Tam. “After the owners realized that they were just not equipped to take care of these dogs, they decided to surrender them to the Hawaiian Humane Society.”

Three of the dogs have been adopted, but one, who has been named Angel, just went up for adoption Saturday.

The Hawaiian Humane Society says she’s healthy and enjoying the love of her foster family, but she needs a forever-home.

Contact the Humane Society at (808) 356-2218 if you’d like Angel or if you want to become a foster family, and if you see an animal in need of help, call the Humane Society’s dispatch line at (808) 356-2250. Or click here to visit the Humane Society’s website.
