Bissell Pet Foundation Grant Award

We can’t say it enough times: if you want to prevent pet overpopulation, spay and neuter your pets, both cats and dogs. This will make a difference to reduce the number of pets in shelters and rescues. The Bissell Pet Foundation is committed to this life-saving work and has provided the funds for spay and neuter surgeries and vaccinations for our island dogs.  You may recognize the Bissell name as associated with home care products.

County of Hawaii 

KARES was awarded a grant for spay and neuter of companion dogs as a continuation of the County's support over the past 7 years to help control the overpopulation of island dogs. We thank the County for sharing in this community service to provide sterilization of almost 800 dogs for the benefit of the people and animals of Hawaii.
