Half of dogs rescued from Makaha pet shelter still in need of foster care

The Hawaiian Humane Society is only halfway to completing its goal in seeking foster care families for dogs rescued from a Makaha pet shelter in October.

As many as 50 people attended an orientation on fostering the animals this afternoon.

They are only up for foster care because the criminal case involving the dogs is an open investigation, which means the dogs cannot be adopted yet.

But potential foster parents got to meet 40 of the 150 dogs still needing a home, and they could take one home today if there was a match.

“If you don’t see one that’s your perfect match tonight, don’t worry we’ll be holding these classes throughout the next few weeks, you won’t have to sit through the class again but you can come back and see if you can be paired with another dog,” admission manager Joe Adarna told Sunday’s class.

Orientation classes are scheduled this Tuesday through Friday. If you’re interested, click here for information.
