Thousands of cats arrive to Hawaiian Humane Society every month. So the Humane Society is embarking on an aggressive sterilization effort to get as many neighborhood cats fixed. The Humane Society will offer $10 “Feline Fix” spay/neuter surgeries for 100 outdoor cats in ONE DAY on Sunday, June 12.
Donations will be accepted along with Humane Society “wish list” items, which include: canned kitten food,
cat toys and Kong dog toys, dog/cat nail clippers, kitty litter, shoe boxes and newspaper (full wish list can
be found at www.hawaiianhumane.org).
The Humane Society’s Feline Fix is made possible through charitable contributions by Humane Society
donors. Appointments are being accepted starting May 16 for the June 12 surgery at 356-2208 and
“About 19 percent of Oahu residents own a cat and 17 percent are feeding a cat they don’t consider their
own,” says Pamela Burns, Hawaiian Humane Society president and CEO. “The Humane Society urges cat
owners to keep their felines indoors for their pet’s safety and to protect birds and other wildlife. Most
importantly, all cats allowed outside – even those residents may be feeding but do not claim as their own –
need to be sterilized.”
Cats must be more than eight weeks old and weigh more than two pounds and delivered in a cat carrier or
humane trap. Humane cat traps are available for sale and on loan at the Humane Society (call 946-2187 for
more information). SAME DAY drop-off and pick-up will be in the Humane Society Classroom with
parking available in the back parking lot by the Humane Society Dog Park on Kehena Place.
The Humane Society sterilizes feral colony cats at no cost year round through its Trap, Neuter, Return and
Manage (TNRM) program, a humane and effective program that reduces the number of feral cats in
On Oahu, the Hawaiian Humane Society is the only animal welfare organization that shelters, rescues,
adopts and welcomes animals all day, every day. We protect animals from abuse, find families for homeless
pets, and teach children about compassion for animals. As an independent nonprofit that receives no
funding from other mainland animal welfare organizations such as HSUS and ASPCA, 100% of donations
stays in the islands for the benefit of Hawaii’s animals and people. For more on the Humane Society, visit
hawaiianhumane.org. The website features a list of all programs, upcoming events and a selection of photos
of animals that are immediately available for adoption.
