    Pictured at a recent spay and neuter clinic hosted by Hui Pono Holoholona are Keith Dane, Hawaii policy adviser for the Humane Society of the United States, Cindy Caldicott, Carey Yost and HPH founder Frannie Pueo. The Humane Society recently awarded the nonprofit rescue a $2,500 grant, which will be used to construct additional kennels at HPH’s Pono Animal Way Sanctuary.

Efforts continue to bring animals stranded in restricted lava zones to safety, and the current break in the Kilauea eruption means rescue crews can do so with greater ease.
