The Molokai Humane Society has a new Facebook page and, now, a new roof, to help protect all its guests, furry and otherwise.
Although the roof did not get completed on Saturday as scheduled, the volunteers were able to put up the bamboo shade screens outside the trailer on Maunaloa Highway, one mile east of the airport. Volunteers were out again yesterday to put the finishing touches on the roof outside the shipping container that serves as an office.
In the past, the MHS used an old makeshift roof that would fall down regularly and tear during strong winds. Last week volunteers came out to dig holes and put in supports for the new roof. The new roof offers far more protection from the elements for all the guests that need to wait on busy days.
The MHS is also in the process of getting a new sign so that people will be able to identify the building as the Humane Society.
For the organization, new members will be elected to the board next week. The group is also looking at ways to better serve the community as the only organization that provides veterinary care on Molokai.
Visiting veterinarian, Dr. Hollis, will be on Molokai until Wednesday. Call 558-0000 to make an appointment.
The non-profit organization can also be found under “The Molokai Humane Society” on Facebook. The group’s website is www.molokaihumanesociety.org and they can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
