Goodbye with Grace

Submitted by Janell Matthies, UAN Emergency Services Manager

So I’m saying goodbye to all of my friends (dogs, cat, duck and human) from Hawaii. As usual it’s difficult to leave, but comforting to know the animals are in such capable hands. The local organizations involved are more than incredible. I have never met a group of people more willing and actually pleased to do ANYTHING for the animals -- whether it’s cleaning poop, washing dirty crates, sweeping, paperwork or the fun part of actually loving on the animals.

A few of our favorite things

Submitted by Janell Matthies, UAN Emergency Services Manager

Since Happy Sue has gone to the vet for treatment and local volunteers jumped at the chance to foster her, we have redirected our affections to the many other animals in our care.

During lunch today I asked the volunteers to tell me who was their favorite and why. This is a sampling of their answers:

- "Mary, the red pit. She is really shy, but trying so hard to give us another chance." (picture 1 below)

Caring: What we do best

On Sunday, July 19, a team of UAN's trained Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS) volunteers began caring for more than 400 dogs, cats, ducks, chickens, swans and geese seized from a hoarding situation in Hawaii. EARS volunteers helped set up a temporary shelter for the animals and will care for them until they can be transferred to rescue groups and shelters for adoption.

Chain links and zip ties

Submitted by Janell Matthies, UAN Emergency Services Manager

Even though we are here in Hawaii, you would never guess that people were lounging by a pool or having fun in the ocean. About 30 volunteers from EARS and other groups swarmed into the warehouse yesterday to help set up our temporary emergency shelter. The volunteers, some even from the mainland, have been sweating all day creating kennel after kennel out of chain-link fencing and zipties.
