Pickles was found back in 2022, stuffed in a trash bag on the side of the road and was left for dead. She was also suffering from severe mange.

Pickles spent several weeks at the Hawaiian Humane Society, then in a foster home before she was adopted by a family. And while that should have been her happily ever after, Pickles was brought back to the shelter due to unexpected life changes.

You can now help give her the loving life she deserves. Pickles is one-and-a-half years old and is 35 pounds. She does have heartworm but her condition is treatable.

If you’d like to open up your home to her, you can visit her at the Hawaiian Humane Society’s Moiliili campus.

While the Hawaiian Humane Society’s Veterans Day Adoption Special ended on Wednesday, Nov. 15, you can still take advantage of its Thanksgiving special.

The special will begin on Thursday, Nov. 16 when all adoption fees for all animals will be completely waived. This comes as an incentive for pet adoption sponsored by Petco Love.
