On the afternoon of December 2, 2014, we had a tragic incident when a pack of loose dogs came onto the PAWS property and killed over 15 felines.  Another 10 are still missing. Some cats escaped into the surrounding forest and have returned, but the older ones and others, were easy victims. Some felines were in the community hall shelter where the caretaker is usually on-site and they were taken by surprise and easily trapped by the pack of large dogs. The remaining cats and the volunteers have been traumatized to say the least. The humans have decided that we have to reach out past our local group to ask for the funds to add to the safety of the cats as quickly as possible.  We found that when we make people aware of our situation they want to help. Hopefully, that will include you.


Received wonderful matching donation of $1,500.00, HPH is so thankful for this support. Mahalo
