We received a request for help this weekend. A photo with a puppy on the concrete with one eye hanging out. We were told the puppy had been in this condition for a whole week and that he was in pain and crying. Thanks to our incredible community we were able to take him in that night. He was started on medications and booked for surgery first thing Monday morning (March 15th). We are so grateful that Aloha Affordable Veterinary Services squeezed him in to their busy schedule this monday. A huge mahalo to Heather and Jenn for doing a tag team on weekend supportive care. A big mahalo to Holly, Ellie, O’o Hawaii and all those helping to raise money for his surgery costs! Mahalo nui to Dina for taking him in as a foster, we know he will get all the lovings.
UPDATE: This little baby had his eye removed today. It was too damaged and due to it being “out” for a week, it wasn’t able to be fixed. This boy will have a happy life as a one eyes doggo.

“Merry Christmas from the Alvina Family. It’s been a year since we’ve had the blessing of adding Po’okela to our family. He’s growing to be an amazing dog. He’s quite protective of the kids and a very good guard dog. He’s funny and we often say weird, *Lol* because he’s just too smart for his own good. We could not picture our lives without him.”
“I wanted to thank you guys for giving us two beautiful doggies, after experiencing the loss of our two dogs last year. The bond Sora and Yuna have are remarkable, and they love us just as much as we love them. I wanted to let you know they made it safely with us for our move off island. They are happy and healthy! This is from our last shoot on the island!
Thank you again for all you do, and for finding all these dogs amazing and loving homes ❤ You made our family whole again!”
“Aloha & Merry Christmas! Just wanted to share some picture of Koko… we celebrated her 1st birthday today and her first Christmas!”
