Upon our return to MHS, we gave DJ back to a volunteer who had an Australian accent (we didn’t catch his name). I told him I think we failed because I fell in love with DJ and felt like he was such a good match for us. The volunteer said “we called that a success” and told me I probably gave DJ the best day ever. This made me think why can’t I make every day “DJ’s Best Day Ever.” Then, we briefly discussed adoption and bribing him to the mainland with Tucker. We boarded our flight home to Chicago the next morning. I thought about, talked about and looked at pictures of DJ until I called MHS when they opened on Monday. I spoke with Kam who told me DJ was already part of the Wings of Aloha program. She was going to see what DJ’s options were.
Then one day, another Cody called us. One all the way from the Pacific Northwest that felt they could help. Several months after the last of his senior dogs had passed he was ready for a new friend and was looking up “older hard to place shelter dogs” online when Cody’s profile came up. After reading his Bio and watching his video on our website, Cody felt that he just might be the right home for Cody. And boy was he!
This is a true rags to riches success story. Debbie Wilson (now Dellafina) came to MHS in February after she was rescued by Humane Enforcement Officers from a shocking hoarding situation. This adorable little Ridgeback was flown from Maui to an adoption-guaranteed...
This adoption pupdate is a two for one special! Izzy and Vienna have both found their forever home and gained a new sibling.
Opihi came to MHS in such poor condition that staff will never forget first laying eyes on his emaciated and withered body. He was so weak and starved that he could not lift his head or stand up, so brutally neglected that it seemed as if he’d reached the point of no return.
Every visit to MHS is risky – you risk adding a member to your ohana!
Sometimes your next furry best friend just walks into your life. Two years ago she ran across our vacation rental lanai, starving and feral.
Is there anything better than a catnap? Dahlia is clearly more than comfortable in her forever home.
Piccard and Janeway (formerly Frank and Erin Wilson) came to MHS as a part of a large scale seizure/impound case last October. At MHS, they received the medical attention and care they needed, but were still very scared and unsure of the world around them.
Let’s all wish Johnny Cash (formerly Destin) a happy 6th birthday! This sweet boy was adopted in Oregon after being transferred to an adoption guaranteed shelter through our Wings of Aloha Transfer Program and now helps foster other dogs looking for their furever home (when he isn’t too busy napping).
