A new Molokai Humane Society (MHS) website, at www.molokaihumanesociety.org, has been launched, sharing a wealth of information about the organization. Susan Savage, a Molokai resident, has generously designed the site at no charge.
The site hosts the mission and objective of the organization, adoption info, allows for tax-deductible donations. It also lists information on veterinarians and volunteers, MHS contacts, and MHS news.
The MHS clinic and office was established in January 2008 in Ho’olehua. Its mission is to educate the community and its children as to the care, protection, responsibility, and well being associated with animals.
Koki Foster, Molokai Humane Society Board of Director, said since its opening the organization has been busy receiving an excess of 960 telephone calls, 648 office visits and reaching out to18 emergency house calls.
The MHS has the opportunity to work and assist with visiting veterinarians (so far a total of six; three from the neighbor islands and three from the mainland).
The veterinarians have been working hard to vaccinate 240 pets, spay 166 female cats, neuter 153 male cats, spay 53 female dogs, and neuter 27 male dogs. All together, this is serving a total of 1,065 pets and clients.
Thirty-two volunteers have been working diligently, while logging in an excess of 1,500 volunteer hours. Together they have been completing a total of 399 sterilizations and currently have 70 animals on the waiting list to be sterilized.
You can make a difference by being apart of the "Spay it forward" fund raising drive.
The Molokai Humane Society would like to give a big mahalo to all the generous donors without whom they would not be able to obtain much needed supplies and equipment. They will continue to strive to make a difference in the community for our people and their animals.
