The Great Hawaiian Pet Rescue

You may have heard, but more than 600 dogs and cats were transported from Hawaii to Seattle on Oct. 29 in what’s being called the largest pet rescue flight in history.

The 600 pets were flown from crowded shelters on the islands to seek adoption in Oregon, Washington, and other western states. These pets were mostly strays, but are now looking forward to finding their new families. Organizers say that all of the animals have been spayed or neutered.

The lockdown has resulted in Seattle area animal shelters being pretty low on adoptable pets, so luckily we have space for these displaced pets.

“Without the option of sending animals off island, we’ve been relying on foster families to care for our increased animal population, but there’s only so many animals our community can absorb,” Steve MacKinnon, CEO of the Maui Humane Society told Maui Now. “This opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time and we are so grateful.”

If you’re interested in adopting one of the pets, keep an eye out on the humane society websites. They’ll be posting soon!

Animals will be available at these shelters: PAWS, The NOAH Center, Seattle Humane, Humane Society of Skagit Valley, Kitsap Humane, Oregon Humane Society, Humane Society for Southwest Washington, Kootenai Humane Society, Seattle Area Feline Rescue, TRACS, SpokAnimal, Blue Mountain Humane Society, and Embrace a Discarded Animal Society.

Adoptable Pets at the Seattle Animal Shelter

Meet Gusto!
Gusto is in a foster home, and is currently not at the shelter. Handsome Gusto is a laid back, sweet old dude who’s gentle with children. He’s in foster with other dogs and a cat, so with slow introductions, he’ll probably do fine in a home with other animals. His foster family reports that he’s well-behaved for his bath and nail trim and he’s a great snuggler!

He does have some cardiac and bladder issues that he’s getting medications for. He is adored in his foster home and we’re hopeful he’ll be feeling better soon. Detailed medical information will be provided prior to adoption.

Meet Spooky!
**Important** This kitty is not at the shelter, but is waiting patiently in a foster home to meet you.

Spooky takes a moment to warm up, then when he does he purrs like a Harley Davidson! He and his sisters are the most playful, inquisitive kittens his foster parents have ever fostered. They are so much fun to watch. Spooky also likes to jump on your lap and demands attention.

Meet Gus!
Meet Gus, a handsome boy guinea pig! Gus is doing really well in his foster home, he runs around the room in the mornings, popcorning and twisting all around. His favorite is to run behind the chair – he pops his head out on one side, waits a second (and sometimes bounces a little bit), then runs full speed behind the chair to pop his head out on the other side, back and forth and then sometimes out across the room!

Gus likes to makes all sorts of noise now, too – he ‘wheeks’ anytime the fridge is opened between 11-noon, and sometimes for lettuce-like sounds. And he purrs when he’s picked up. He’s even brave enough to eat salad while holding him! Gus is looking for his new forever home!

Meet Maltby!
Maltby is in a foster home, and is currently not at the shelter. Meet Maltby! He’s a gentle giant with a sensitive soul and he would love to shake your hand. When he came to the shelter he was very shy at first, but with time he has opened up and showed us his playful side. He loves catching treats mid-air and romping around when excited. His sweet gaze will melt your heart. We don’t know exactly how old Maltby is as he came to us as a stray but we think around three years old.

He would prefer to be the only dog in the house. He can get spooked by sudden movements or loud noises, so we think a home with adults only or older children would be best. His ideal environment would be a house with a large fully fenced yard on a quiet neighborhood street with little to no foot traffic. A busy apartment complex contains too many surprises and other furry friends!

Meet Simone!
**Important** This kitty is not at the shelter, but is waiting patiently in a foster home to meet you.


Simone is named after Simone Biles for her leaping and acrobatic moves. She is very curious and must check out everything. Then she turns on her purr motor and loves lots of attention. She, her sister and her brother are the most playful, inquisitive kittens that her foster parents have ever fostered. She is a lot of fun!
