Success Story: Debbie/Dellafina


August 7, 2020
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 program in California through our Wings of Aloha Transfer Program. Once in California, volunteers at the transfer shelter worked hard to find a safe way to transport Dellafina to her forever home hundreds of miles away – an ohana that had been searching high and low just for a (rare) mini Ridgeback! Maui Humane Society is thrilled to hear that Dellafina is living the life she always deserved and we’re grateful for all the people who made this a true “happily ever after” outcome for Dellafina.
 
Sometimes it takes a village to help a dog find their forever home, but it’s all worth it when you see everyone’s smiling faces.
 
“She has been with us for 2 weeks and is settling in to her new digs. Della is very petite with her tiny little ridge. She loves to snuggle in a tiny ball and gives the gentlest of kisses. Who would have thought there would be a “small” Ridgeback waiting for us. We love our sweet Dellafina which means ‘delicate and petite’ in Italian.”

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.
