More than 40 dogs were rescued from a home in Halawa Tuesday afternoon.
According to the Hawaiian Humane Society, the owner surrendered the animals willingly.
The 43 Pomeranians range in age from six weeks old to adult.
Humane Society officials say they received a tip on Tuesday and responded to the Halawa residence. The owner told the Humane Society she was a dog breeder.
Officials say this was not a so-called “puppy mill.”
“Our medical staff right now is reviewing the first 27 dogs that we brought in. The second half are coming in now. So right now our primary focus is to make sure that these dogs are medically okay. And so our chief veterinarian and her staff are going to be reviewing those dogs carefully,” Hawaiian Humane Society spokesperson Keoni Vaughn said.
Once their medical needs are taken care of, the adult dogs will be spayed or neutered and put up for adoption.
The Humane Society is asking the public to donate items including unopened dog food, crates, kennels, towels, and toys.
