“We are committed to building a truly humane community based on our compassion and shared responsibility for the island’s animal welfare. We envision a community where all pets have a home. It’s a community where people value and care for their own animals and all the animals on the island of Oahu, “said Annano Ibauer, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Hawaiian Humanitarian Society. .. “Our Ewa Expansion helps to provide the services and resources needed in poorly serviced areas of the island.”
According to HHS, 66% of Oahu’s pet owners live in the west, the highest percentage on the island. The overall ownership rate of pets is 58%.
In addition, West Oahu is home to 32% of the island’s homeless population. About 29% of Oahu homeless people report having at least one pet.
“The distance between the West Oahu community and Honolulu’s resources is a barrier to providing important services to animals in need,” HHS said in a news release.
The project will be completed by the end of 2022 and the campus will be open to the public later that year or early 2023.
