The Hawaiian Humane Society (Honolulu, Hawaii 96826) teaches and promotes humane treatment for every living creature in the belief that all life has an intrinsic value and that each contributes to the quality of life. The Humane Society believes that compassionate and responsible care toward animals develops compassionate and caring humans, and that condoning violence toward animals desensitizes people toward all living creatures – both animals and people.

Animals As Companions

The Society believes that companion animals fare best when people make a well-considered decision to accept the responsibilities of ownership and a commitment to provide them with proper life-long care and quality of life.  Animal companions should be provided an environment where they are part of a family.

The Society opposes giving animals as prizes, in raffles or contests, or sales of animals in an environment which encourages an impulse decision, in the belief that the animals are likely to go to homes ill-prepared to accept or support them. It supports efforts to help owners learn proper care, training, and respect for their animals.

Pet owners should respect and adhere to all animal-related laws, make sure their animal’s emotional and physical needs are met, and that their behavior makes them a welcome member, rather than a nuisance in our neighborhood and community. The Society encourages and recommends that cat owners confine their cats to the home or a suitably sized cattery for the animals’ safety.  Dogs should not be chained 24 hours a day; intermittent chaining for limited periods is acceptable if more humane enclosure alternatives are not available.
