Happy New Year!

As 2019 starts, it's time to reflect on the animals in our lives and check that they're set up for success. As a pet owner, one of the best things you can do is ensure that your pets have identification.

Stray animals come through Hawaiian Humane's doors daily without microchips, identification tags or dog licenses. The law requires that all dogs wear a valid license as proof of ownership, but ID or collars can still fall off. Microchipping your pet is the most reliable way of helping them be reunited with their family. Call your veterinarian or stop by the Society any day of week, between noon and 4 pm, to microchip your pet.

If your pet already has a microchip, remember to update your information with the Hawaiian Humane Society. The Society maintains Oahu's pet microchip database.

The Hawaiian Humane Society is supporting a bill at the state Legislature that would give restaurant owners the option to adopt pet-friendly policies.

The measure will be introduced when the Legislature convenes on January 16. To succeed it will need enthusiastic community support. See who's already on board with adopting pet-friendly policies and add your name to the petition at HawaiianHumane.org/PetsinRestaurants.

The Hawaiian Humane Society originally started as an organization that focused on helping children, unwed mothers, the mentally ill and animals. In 1935, the shelter relinquished child protection functions, to what is now known as Child & Family Service, and began focusing primarily on animals.



Spread joy to Hawaii's people and pets. Learn more about how you can visit Hawaii schools, health partners and other organizations with your own pet and promote the human-animal bond through the Hawaiian Humane Society's pet visitation program.
