More than 250 dogs rescued from Makaha home

Top News

One man was arrested and more than 250 dogs were rescued today at a Makaha home, police said.

Police executed a search warrant at the home this morning and arrested a 60-year-old man for investigation of one count of second-degree animal cruelty, a Honolulu Police Department spokeswoman said.

More than 250 dogs were recovered and taken to the Humane Society, she said.

The Humane Society said the dogs were living in “inhumane” conditions and the nonprofit is now evaluating each dog’s health.

Strained by the large number of dogs rescued, the Humane Society is asking the public for donations of wire crates or towels or by volunteering at its Waialae Avenue campus.
