HONOLULU (KHON2) – The Hawaii Island Humane Society (HIHS) plans to reopen two of its shelters to the public in August. The Kona Animal Community Center will open on August 1 and the Keaau shelter will open on August 15. Both shelters will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“We are delighted to welcome the community back to our Kona and Keaau campuses,” said Lauren Nickerson, CEO of HIHS. “Given current concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hawaii Island Humane Society will not be making a ‘grand opening’ but rather a welcoming opportunity for the community to come back to familiarize themselves with our beautiful facilities, programs and of course. , our dedicated Staff. “

Both shelters will have guided tours and additional adoption counselors on-site to match families with their pets. HIHS encourages those looking to adopt to start the process online.

Applications must be submitted for review by Tuesday July 27 if you wish to adopt from the Kona Shelter on August 1. However, anyone can visit the animals on August 1 and schedule a later pickup date.
