Dogs and puppies

Flying dogs in need a layover :-)

by Joseph Romero on March 21, 2017

Hi all,

I’m here today for a bit of an odd request. We are trying to reestablish a relationship with a municipal shelter based out of Kauai and I’m hoping to find a few of you out there that might be able to assist. While Kauai may be a beautiful place to visit, their adoptions are extremely low. You can imagine, not a lot of potential adopters when you live on an island.

A few years back, we used to regularly have dogs flown over from Hawaii and placed up for adoption. A lot of dogs on the islands are used for hunting game and once the season is over, they are abandoned. If they were lucky, they made it to Kauai Humane Society where they would reach out to shelters on the Mainland in hopes of finding forever homes.

Fast forward a couple of years and there have been some changes, especially where the airlines are concerned. Basically, the number of flights have greatly diminished. And the only flights to our area don’t arrive until 7:30pm. Unfortunately, the shelter will be closed for the evening so we are looking at alternatives. One of those alternatives is having the animal stay in foster care overnight and then brought to us the next morning.

I’d like to find a couple of homes that are available to pick up a dog at the Oakland airport, keep them overnight and then drop them off at our Oakland campus the next morning. So you’d be looking at a fostering experience that would last a little over 12 hours. 🙂 If you think that you’d be able to provide some much needed assistance in this matter then please get back to me. I’d be happy to provide more information.

Thanks again for everything that you do!

UPDATE: Buddy has been placed

by Joseph Romero on March 15, 2017

Thank you for visiting 🙂 I have already found a foster home!

Name: Buddy Jr
Age: 6 Weeks old
Breed: Pit Bull Mix
Foster Period: 2 weeks

Hi All,

I’m thinking that this one is going to go fast. I have a very sweet, extremely round, 6 week old puppy that is looking for a home for the next 2 weeks. This little basketball was brought to us a few moments ago and I’m really hoping that we can get him out before the end of the day. I’m sure he’d appreciate spending the night in a nice and loving foster home instead of a cold, dark kennel. Buddy is located at our Oakland campus so if you can come by prior to closing then I’d love to hear from you.

Thanks!
