Protect Rescue Animals From Alleged Neglect at Shelter

Target: Michelle Cooley, Founder and President of Kaaawa K9 Rescue

Goal: Ensure health and safety of rescue animals at seemingly neglectful facility.

Five dogs allegedly had to be rescued from a rescue facility in Hawaii. The Hawaii Humane Society took custody of the dogs from Kaaawa K9 Rescue after abuse allegations were made online and to local authorities about the organization. The accusations stated that animals were in poor health and possibly being neglected.

The owner of the organization claims the issues are due to a landlord dispute and a recent alleged arson on the property. While the local humane society found no outright evidence of abuse, the fact that they felt compelled to remove nearly half a dozen animals from a property charged with the care of these animals is disturbing. Even the owner herself reportedly admits difficulty in keeping up with care of these animals.

Sign the petition below to urge closure of an aid facility that has seemingly become a danger itself.


Dear Ms. Cooley,

No matter the source of your recent troubles with Kaaawa K9 Rescue, you have reportedly admitted that these issues are impeding your ability to care for at-risk animals. The mission of a rescue organization should always put the vulnerable living beings under its care first. Please honor this mission.

Close Kaawa until this organization can live up to its billing.

    These incidents are rare but disgusting!!

    • What’s to become of these animals when this facility is closed down really worries me. Animal shelter’s are overwhelmed and overcrowded everywhere, and the amount of animal’s being euthanized because of the overcrowding of shelter’s is staggering.
      More people need to realize that spay & neutering their animal’s will help, and to adopt not buy from puppy mills. Help sign petitions to shut these horrendous puppy mill’s down.
      By the way, I did sign this petition. I pray that there’s a good shelter for them to go to.
