Chewpee

How we helped

Dental Expense Grant

At 15 years old, Chewpee the Chihuahua lost both of his owners within six months after they each sadly passed away. Family members noticed that his health and emotional state were in decline but could not afford costly veterinary care. They decided that euthanasia might be the most humane option, but the private practice veterinary euthanasia fees were also beyond reach. As a last resort, they brought Chewpee to Maui Humane Society to say a heartbreaking goodbye...

P-nut

How we helped

Medical Expense Grant

P-Nut was surrendered to a vet’s office for euthanasia because “he was old.” Thankfully, a foster parent for Carolina Poodle Rescue stepped up to help. P-Nut was in terrible shape after a years of neglect. His fur was so severely matted that you could barely see the outline of his little body. He was quiet – almost defeated – during the car ride home from the vet, and yet, in his cloudy, aged eyes, there was hope.
