Alani’s Road to Recovery | PetWalk 2015 is Here



In May, a tiny injured kitten was found huddled and shaking in a car engine. She was covered with auto grease and had a scraped nose. The kitten was evaluated by the Hawaiian Humane Society veterinary staff and appeared to have a possible fractured pelvis and an injured tail.

While in foster care, she transformed from a shy to an affectionate and attention-seeking one who loved the company of those around her. The kitten, now named Alani, returned to the Humane Society for a checkup and to be spayed. We found out that her tail wasn’t healing and would need to be amputated. Following surgery, Alani went back to foster care and was adopted in late July after recovering.

Alani is just one of so many that need your help. The Humane Society’s Foster Care Program helps to save thousands of orphaned animals, as well as providing assistance to owned animals whose families are in crises. That’s why we need your help to collect a few donations and rally your friends and family to step out for PetWalk. Join our cause and create an online supporter page today by clicking hereso we can continue our life-saving work.

On any given day, I am coordinating in-home care for more than 100 animals in foster care. Last year, more than 1,400 needed extra time for care and treatment in order to get ready for adoption.

That’s why I am stepping out for PetWalk. Together, we can raise critical funds so that I can continue my life’s work to help homeless animals in need.

Here’s my supporter page and I hope to see you on Sunday, October 11 at Magic Island. All the details are here.

With Aloha,


Michelle Garcia
Foster Care Coordinator
