At the airport with Cooper and his new dad, Kyle! Never thought I would get to see this sweet pup again, let alone help him make it to his furever home. Here’s hoping that in 2015 I can make Sitting for a Cause even bigger so more dogs can find awesome homes like the one Kyle will give Cooper.
Thank you Ashley for your mission in saving more dogs and helping this awesome guy find his forever home!

~ MIESHA & REX ~

Friends living in two different states… One in tropical Kauai, and  the other in snowy (November) Minnesota.  The Youngren family in Minnesota,  missing some pups in their lives, decide to adopt two Kauai shelter dogs. With a quick snap of the fingers they said yes (dogs only seen by photos and a few videos), even though living far across states, plus they could have adopted locally !  It took about a month of planning, matching two great dogs… and they finally made it home!  What joy and cheers from all their fans and supporters.  Alot of people came together to make this happen but my hat is off to Ally(friend in Kauai) for her overall dedication in her mission to save as many furry friends as possible, which includes Miesha and Rex.  And these two pups couldn’t have been saved by a better family, the Youngrens.  These are two pampered pups with a new awesome family…their forever home ~

And my hat off is to this…

Florida…
This story proves that love has no boundaries! About a month ago, Mike was visiting Kauai from Florida. He decided to stop by KHS to visit our animals when he met Big Z. Big Z is an 8 year old gentle giant who loves everyone he meets.

A few weeks later, Mike noticed that Big Z was still up for adoption via our website. He called to inquire about the adoption process and was ready to make Big Z a part of his family. Mike could have had Big Z shipped to him, but didn’t want him to fly alone so he made the trek to accompany Big Z. Mike flew to Kauai from Florida on Sunday, spent the day with Big Z exploring the island yesterday, and both flew home together today! That’s true love…and the best part of our jobs!

To all the fans of Mango:
Mango is settling into her new life. She has been going on long walks with her new mom and has paid visits to the groomer and the vet where everyone loves her. She is experiencing a whole new world of being a house dog with all the creature comforts- leaving her years as an abused and neglected Soares dog far behind. Thanks, Tino  for making her life a happy one!

Remember Leo, who we shared last month on facebook? Well, we’re happy to announce Leo has been adopted & is now enjoying his new family. A New Jersey couple visiting Kauai over a month ago, met Leo during one of our adoption events at the KCC farmer’s market. They were instantly smitten with his sweet demeanor. After returning home to New Jersey, Leo stayed on their mind and decided to see if he was still at KHS. We’re happy to say that he flew home to them last Friday and has been adjusting well to a spoiled life!

 We have a wonderful pupdate to share with you! Tundra, a funloving guy who came to KHS in early July, was taken out on a field trip a few weeks ago by a visiting couple.

A wonderful pupdate on Krissi! Krissi came to KHS as a very, very shy stray who didn’t know much about the world. Thanks to our dedicated staff, each day, she learned more about the world, learned how to walk on a leash, & came out of her shell. After some time, she was confident enough to participate in our field trip program, but only if another dog was with her. After a few fun trips, she blossomed even more and was ready to venture out on her own for field trips. Last week, her future parents took her out on a field trip and they were sold with her sweet personality…well, now she is at home in California with them! Mahalo for adopting Krissi!
We absolutely loved the field trip program you have at the shelter. We bonded so well with Krissi we couldn’t help but bring her back to California with us. She makes it an effort to sunbathe as much as possible. She must miss the Hawaiian weather!

A wonderfully happy tail for Lizzy!
We adopted this sweet baby just yesterday from the KHS! We learned about the field trip program from Marlana Schaefer (Spinning Dolphin Designs in Hanalei), and we owe her so much for this opportunity! My husband and I were married just a week and a half ago on the north shore, and decided to do a KHS field trip for fun on our honeymoon. We fell head over heels in LOVE with Lizzy after taking her out, and she will be joining us and 2 other rescue dogs in Phoenix, AZ this Saturday! Thank you SO much for this wonderful program, and for supporting perfect dogs like Lizzy! We couldn’t have found our newly adopted child without you

Another happy tail for a long time KHS resident! Josie, a 7 year old airedale mix, came to KHS in October 2013 as a stray with a large open wound on her side. We stitched her up and placed her up for adoption. During her time at KHS, she went on MANY field trips where she stole a lot of hearts with her spunky, fun loving personality. We are so happy to say that she just left the building with her new dad & she’ll be making her way to California at the end of the month with her new parents! Aloha Josie!

A lovely happy tail about Viv, now Hanalei, who was at KHS for 9 months until she found her new loving home with a visitor!
We are so happy that during our recent visit to Kauai we were able to adopt Viv/aka Hanalei. She was quite a trooper, tolerating 8 hours of flying and nearly constant time in her kennel. She was so good on the flights that people asked if she was drugged! Now we and our five other animals are loving her up good. Thank you for such a precious kitty – so sad she was at the shelter nearly nine months – thanks for saving her for us!

As of yesterday, Keshka is now a Canadian. This is the family’s second KHS alum…they adopted from us a few years ago! And…they were willing to accompany 2 KHS puppies on their flight to Seattle so that the puppies could be transferred to Seattle Humane: The Humane Society for Seattle/King County! Mahalo nui loa for adopting Keshka & offering your help to our Pet Transfer Program!

Fantastic news! News we’ve all been hoping for!! Treble, KHS’ longest resident has been adopted & is now on his way to his forever home in Canada!Treble came to us as a stray last January. Since then, he’s won the hearts of staff and many visitors who have taken him out on field trips. One such visitor, from Canada, was so bonded to Treble that when she returned home, she advocated Treble’s pictures & story on facebook. She could not personally adopt Treble because she owns a cat & Treble unfortunately has a high prey drive. So she advertised him to all of her friends. Well, one of her friends saw Treble & really felt he was the dog for their family. So what did they do? Well, they booked a flight to Kauai specifically to meet Treble!! So this week, Treble went out two days in a row on field trips with them & now is on his flight home. Our hearts are filled with joy! Mahalo for adopting & mahalo to Katie for advocating so strongly for a homeless dog!
 Thank you Katie … you ROCK !!!

From Tucker’s mom:
I just wanted to send you a quick note as we approach Thanksgiving and tell you how thankful we are that we stopped by your shelter when we were in Kauai on vacation. Admiral (we renamed him Tucker) is a GREAT dog! We had to potty train him, but he is extremely smart and learned quickly. He is wonderful with our 3 cats and daughter. He loves the dog park and never met a treat he didn’t like. He’s been a wonderful addition to our lives so far. I attached a couple of pictures for you. We wish you and the little critters all the best over the holidays.Mahalo to all KHS adopters!

The Hawiian Prince That Fell Into Our Laps
11/23/2013

In June 2013 we started looking for a lab that would join my boyfriend and I while we moved in together. We wanted a lab because we knew how loving and gentle they are and how they made wonderful best friends. We looked at East Bay SPCA’s website and saw Broma (his shelter name), a year and a half lab/greyhound that had came from Kauai; unfortunately he was on hold for another family.A week later my boyfriend took me to the East Bay SPCA to see if there were any new dogs that were avalible. While walking around we saw Broma again and he wasn’t on hold! While we played with him he was very shy and didn’t really want to play with us but wanted to play with the staff. We put him on hold because we liked him, but were on the fence about adopting him.

While at work, my boyfriend sent me a picture letting me know our new best friend had just entered our lives. I was so ecstatic. Broma, whose new name is Kona since being from Kauai, is the most polite and well-behaved dogs I have ever met. He loves chasing squirrels everywhere we go and he couldn’t be more happy than sleeping in bed with mom or wrestling with dad. He was well potty trained when we got him and is the most gentle dog. He does not bark or whine and loves to cuddle and lay his head on everyone. He was timid with playing with other dogs at first but now he loves running around the dog park with all sorts of dogs that can keep up with his greyhound lightening fast speed. Since we adopted Kona we have adopted two cats for my mom and sister and I am now looking to adopt another brother or sister for Kona.

Thank you East Bay SPCA SPCA for this wonderful best friend!

Your happy tail for today!

Grace, an 8 year old airedale mix, came to KHS as a stray in October. Last week, a couple visiting from CA took Grace & her roommate out for a field trip. It was pretty much love at first sight…Grace showed off her amazingly calm personality & easygoing attitude. However, they decided that it’d probably be too much to adopt and get Grace back to CA. The wife was purely heartbroken…so without telling her, the husband adopted Grace and booked her on their flight. Friday morning, we dropped off Grace at the airport while they were checking in for their flight & the wife was ecstatic! (and he made husband of the year

As you can see, Grace is adjusting very well to life in California!

Tuesday’s Happy Tail!A few weeks ago, when Jen & her family were visiting Kauai from Yukon, Canada they decided to participate in our field trip program. They chose Lono, a 1 year old lab mix for their outing. Lono, a stray who’d been with us for a few months, showed off his charming personality & great temperament. It was easy to fall in love, but they weren’t quite ready to adopt. Upon returning home & tying up some loose ends, Jen contacted us about adopting Lono…we knew it’d be a long trek, but together we made it work! Even after being denied by some airlines because of Lono’s large crate size, the family was still determined to get him home! Lono took a flight to Seattle where Jen’s daughter met him, then they took 2 flights to make it farther north. Lono has made himself right at home & is a great addition to the family!

This special scruffy (a 3-year old medium sized terrier/Airedale mix), who’ve they named Lucky, is about to get a whole lot luckier. He’s hitching a ride back to the mainland today to become a Copper’s Dream pup, fostered by none other than his field trip buddies. While we focus our rescue efforts in California, a life saved is a life saved. Besides, who can resist a little Aloha spirit?

We’d like to give a big mahalo to Outfitters Kauai for encouraging their guests to take a KHS dog out on a field trip! A few weeks ago, a family from San Diego learned about the field trip program from Outfitters Kauai staff while on a ziplining adventure. The family decided to check it out & selected Frida, a 5 year old poodle mix for their outing. Well, she stole their hearts with her well mannered behavior…after returning to CA, they contacted us & decided to adopt! Frida flew to San Diego yesterday & is already nicely settled in as you can see below! Mahalo to our adopters & our supporters at Outfitters Kauai!

Happy Tail for Thursday! Lani, a 6 year old hound mix, came to us as an owner surrender in March. Everyone at KHS loved Lani as she was so easygoing, housebroken, and calm! However, she sat her for 5 months & was never adopted so we decided to transfer her to East Bay SPCA in California where there are many more potential adopters. We recruit people willing to escort our transfer dogs back to the mainland on their flight on Alaska Airlines. Dan & Libby volunteered not only to let a dog fly with them to CA, but to drop the dog off at the shelter the next day. Well…that’s all it took! One night with Lani & they were sold! After being processed at East Bay SPCA, they adopted her! Here she is soaking up her dad’s love. Mahalo Dan & Libby for seeing Lani’s sweet soul!

Kala is now in his loving forever home in the bay area due to our Pet Transfer Program. Kala came to KHS in November 2012, months went by & no one looked at him. After four month here, he was transferred in March 2013 to East Bay SPCA in Oakland. Kala’s time at EBSPCA was very brief & was adopted into a very loving forever home!! We couldn’t be happier!We just heard from his (now Archer) parents with this fabulous update:In late March, my husband and I adopted a 3-year-old airedale mix named Kala, he came from Kauai in the pet transfer program. We renamed him Archer and he’s been a perfect addition to our family. I want to personally thank you for the pet transfer program that allowed us to find him!We enjoy taking him for long walks, trips to the dog park, and his new favorite place: Fort Funston beach. He is so smart and inquisitive. He also hates water and getting his paws wet (confusing since he came from an island!)Archer makes even the non-dog lovers in our family melt. He is so very loving and personable. Kids walk by him on the street and get so excited to pet him, and he is always gentle with them. I work as a librarian for a small private high school and occasionally I take him in to work. He gets so much love from the students that on a recent survey, the students said he was one of their favorite parts about our summer school program.My husband and I joke that we hit the shelter dog lottery with him.

Mahalo to this wonderful family for truly seeing O'opakele's amazing & wonderful being.

Happy Tail for Tuesday! Look at these happy hounds! Koa & Ipo were found starving & abandoned by a Colorado couple visiting Kauai.

SAN FRANCISCO…
Another KHS happy tail for you! After reading about our Pet Transfer Program in the San Francisco Chronicle, bay area resident, Joyce wanted to help out. She and her brother decided to book a trip to Kauai solely to be able to escort a shelter dog to the mainland. While here, Joyce & her brother also, decided to use their time helping KHS dogs. Every day, they took Kiko and Wolfgang for a field trip…exposing them to many potential adopters and getting them tired out. On their last day here, they decided to adopt Wolfgang! So they escorted a dog to Oakland to be placed up for adoption and gave Wolfgang his new forever home. A big mahalo to both of these amazing supporters!

NYC…
Photo: Morgan & Shannon were here on their honeymoon & chose Lacey to take on a field trip on Tuesday. They said she did wonderfully on the day out & really adored her. Lacey came in as an 8 week old pup & has grown up in the shelter for the past five months. This was her third field trip...these field trips GREATLY helped Lacey learn what the big world is about & become a more adoptable dog.</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
<p>Well, they couldn't stop thinking about Lacey & called this afternoon to proceed with an adoption. All the arrangements were made this afternoon, they picked up Lacey at 6pm & are headed to NYC at 10pm tonight! We think Lacey will fit right in as a New Yorker & couldn't be happier! She will have two dog siblings and a cat sibling. We are forever grateful to her new family for seeing something in Lacey that so many others have walked by. Mahalo!

CANADA…
We just said a joyful goodbye to Buddy who is making his journey to his parents in Toronto! Buddy’s previous owner had him for 8 years (since he was a puppy), but could no longer care for him. He was surrendered at the beginning of September to our shelter. Buddy is an AMAZING dog…housebroken, calm, and loves children. At the end of September, a couple from Toronto decided to volunteer with us during their vacation and took Buddy out on a field trip. The next day, they returned to take him on a second field trip! At the end of the day, they expressed interest in adopting, but decided to think about it for a week. Well, it’s official… he is becoming a Canadian citizen! We couldn’t be happier for Buddy to share the rest of his life with this loving couple!

HOW YOU CAN HELP…
from KHS…
Aloha! We are looking for help from some of our mainland supporters in the Oakland area. Currently, we transfer some of our adorable dogs to East Bay SPCA in Oakland & Dublin to be placed up for adoption. Our dogs are usually adopted within 3-5 days at their facility, however, at KHS, they may spend months looking for a forever home.Currently, we are hoping to recruit volunteers who are willing to help with this transfer process. What is needed: pickup 1 dog at 10pm from Oakland airport, keep overnight, then drop off at the Oakland or Dublin facility the next morning. We are looking for people who are comfortable & familiar with handling medium/large dogs. It’s a very rewarding way to help a dog on his way to find his new forever home! Kuger, below spent 4 months at KHS, once transferred to EBSPCA, he was adopted within the week!
