00:00:01,670 --> 00:00:04,110
- Kauai Humane Society
serves the community

3
00:00:04,110 --> 00:00:06,780
by taking in all of the
homeless animals on Kauai.

4
00:00:06,780 --> 00:00:08,060
- The Kauai Humane Society

5
00:00:08,060 --> 00:00:11,460
is the only open admission
shelter on the island,

6
00:00:11,460 --> 00:00:14,680
so we are the last resort for families

7
00:00:14,680 --> 00:00:17,940
who cannot care for their pets anymore.

8
00:00:17,940 --> 00:00:20,210
We're also the hopefully
first place people go

9
00:00:20,210 --> 00:00:21,760
when they'd like to adopt a pet.

10
00:00:21,760 --> 00:00:23,820
- [Amber] We are helping the
community wherever they need,

11
00:00:23,820 --> 00:00:25,440
whatever they need help
with their animals, really.

12
00:00:25,440 --> 00:00:28,110
We offer low cost spay
and neuter, chipping,

13
00:00:28,110 --> 00:00:31,100
vaccinations, as well as
animal control services,

14
00:00:31,100 --> 00:00:31,933
for the whole island.

15
00:00:31,933 --> 00:00:35,310
- [Mirah] We provide food
to low income families.

16
00:00:35,310 --> 00:00:37,180
We offer emergency boarding.

17
00:00:37,180 --> 00:00:39,640
- We run a really successful program

18
00:00:39,640 --> 00:00:41,650
that allows people to take out a dog,

19
00:00:41,650 --> 00:00:43,070
on a field trip for the day.

20
00:00:43,070 --> 00:00:44,450
The Kauai Humane Society

21
00:00:44,450 --> 00:00:48,860
is really relying on community
donations and support.

22
00:00:48,860 --> 00:00:50,870
- When an animal comes into our shelter,

23
00:00:50,870 --> 00:00:51,940
we want the question to be

24
00:00:51,940 --> 00:00:54,150
how are we going to save this life,

25
00:00:54,150 --> 00:00:56,703
not are we going to save this life.
