Kauai Humane Society Pet Transfer Program with Alaska Airlines


Kauai Humane Society also has a pet transfer
program where we transfer dogs and puppies to mainland shelters that have very high adoption
rates. Another way to give back would be to escort a dog to the mainland. We’re always
looking for people flying on Alaska Airlines to Oakland, Portland, and Seattle. If you’re
on a nonstop Alaskan flight to the mainland, you can stop in or give us a call. If it works
out, it’s very easy for you, we just meet you at the airport, get the dog checked in
and on the other end a volunteer picks up the dog from you. So you’re really giving back and helping
Kauai Humane Society without having to do much work at all. One example is Cougar. Cougar was here for
four months, he a scruffy long-hairier air dale mix, not very common in the mainland
shelters but he was here up for adoption for four months. I never really saw anyone look
at him. We transferred him to Oakland and he was adopted within three days. Once adopted,
Cougar became a media sensation, we were interviewed by the associated press about our pet transfer
program and Cougar now lives in a loft in San Francisco with a furniture maker. He travels
around in a truck and is doing fantastic. So if you’re visiting the island, come down
to the Kauai Humane Society and see how you can give back to the animals.
