At Hawaii’s Kauai Humane Society, shelter coordinator Brandy Varvel was faced with the problem of too many dogs and not enough adoption interest at her facility. She soon realized that many of these dog breeds are rarely found in shelters on the mainland, and thus the dogs’ chances for adoption would be greater outside Hawaii. So, Varvel teamed up with mainland shelters to take the animals, and some good Samaritan vacationers to get them there by flying the dogs home as their luggage. Check out the story above from Honolulu Civil Beat.

Aloha! Do we have any supporters flying to Oakland, Portland, Sand Diego or Seattle on an Alaska Air nonstop flight this week? If so, please email brandy@kauaihumane.org to help escort a dog to the mainland as a part of our Pet Transfer Program.
