Hawaiian Humane Society in need of towels after theft


BIND, SO IT’S ASKING FOR HELP. TOWELS WERE STOLEN FROM THE FACILITY AT A TIME WHEN THEY’RE BADLY NEEDED. MANOLO MORALES IS THERE NOW WITH THE DETAILS. MANOLO? THE HUMANE SOCIETY IS ALWAYS IN NEED OF USED TOWELS. THEY USE THEM FOR PRACTICALLY EVERYTHING. A SPOKESWOMAN SAYS THIS THEFT COULDN’T HAVE HAPPENED AT A WORST TIME. TOWELS ARE MORE THAN JUST FOR DRYING OFF THE ANIMALS AT THE HUMANE SOCIETY. IT SEEMS THERE’S NEVER ENOUGH TO KEEP UP WITH THE DEMAND. SUZY TAM, HAWAIIAN HUMANE SOCIETY: “WE USE TOWELS FOR EVERYTHING FOR PUPPIES AND KITTENS TO WRAP THEM TO MAKE SURE THEY SURGERY, ANIMALS WHEN THEY’RE DONE WITH SURGERY TO LAY THEM AND TO WRAP THEM AS WELL. WE USE THEM TO LINE KENNELS SO WE GO THROUGH A TON OF TOWELS ON A DAILY BASIS.” TAM SAYS THE HUMANE SOCIETY RECENTLY RENEWED A CALL FOR MORE DONATIONS AND SO PEOPLE HAD BEEN DROPPING THEM OFF. BUT SOMETIME OVER THE WEEKEND, FOR WHATEVER REASON, SOMEONE STOLE THE TOWELS THAT WERE DONATED. SUZY TAM, HAWAIIAN HUMANE SOCIETY: “IT’S JUST AN UNFORTUNATE TIME WHEN WE’RE CRITICALLY LOW ON TOWELS AND REALLY IN NEED OF THEM AND WE’RE ASKING FOR MORE. WE’RE THANKFUL TO THE GRACIOUS SUPPORTERS WHO THOUGHT ABOUT THE ANIMALS AND IMMEDIATELY BROUGHT MORE TOWELS TO US BUT WE’RE ALWAYS IN NEED OF THEM.” WORD HAS ALREADY GOTTEN OUT ABOUT THE THEFT, AND DONORS ARE HAPPENED IN THE FIRST PLACE. GAY HADAMA, DONOR: “I FEEL SORRY FOR THESE ANIMALS PEOPLE DO IT WITH GOOD HEART TO BRING THESE FOR THE ANIMALS AND TO BE RIPPED OFF IT’S SO SAD.” TAM SAYS THE REASON WHY THEY HAD ASKED FOR MORE DONATIONS IN THE FIRST PLACE IS BECAUSE OF THE AMOUNT OF ANIMALS THEY HAVE THERE NOW. SUZY TAM, HAWAIIAN HUMANE SOCIETY: “WE’RE IN THE HEIGHT OF KITTEN SEASON SO WE HAVE A TON OF KITTENS HERE AND A LOT OF DOGS SO IF YOU GUYS COME OVER TO THE HUMANE SOCIETY YOU’LL NOTICE A LOT OF ANIMALS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION. AND THE MORE ANIMALS WE HAVE THE MORE TOWELS WE DO GO THROUGH.” THE HUMANE SOCIETY IS ALSO IN NEED OF OTHER DONATIONS, LIKE PET FOOD AND TOYS. VOLUNTEERS ARE ALSO WANTED WHO ARE ABLE TO FOSTER THE ANIMALS, OR EVEN JUST TO WALK THE DOGS. BUT THE IMMEDIATE IS FOR TOWELS AND LOTS OF THEM. UNITED LAUNDRY PLANS TO DONATE A BIG BATCH BUT MORE IS NEEDED. WE’VE REACHED OUT TO THE HOTEL INDUSTRY AND CURRENTLY THEY ARE WORKING ON PUTTING A DONATION TOGETHER. A REMINDER TOMORROW… THAT LANE CLOSURES RESUME AT THE GULICK
