As Puahonihoni happily napped on her usual spot under the banana tree on Monday, May 21, 2012, in the evening she was brutally awakened and attacked by two hunting dogs. FORTUNATELY, her human loved ones were home to pull the dogs off of her and saved her from what could have been a very fatal attack.

Pua did not walk away unscathed.  She suffered several deep wounds to her under belly, and lacerations/bites around her ankles, neck, eyes and face.  After intensive surgery performed at Puaʻs home by one of Hawaiʻiʻs leading renowned Veterinarian teams who does house calls, they were able to address Puaʻs wounds before infection set into her body.

The hunter and his dogs were TRESPASSING on PRIVATE PROPERTY.  This makes him a POACHER.  This man, who is responsible for this tragedy, said he would pay for the vet bill before the surgery took place. After being approached for payment, he refused to pay and take any financial responsibility.

Also, because of whatʻs happened, Pua can no longer freely roam the property like she used to, joyfully rooting here and there...
A special pen needs to be created for her.  This pen will be made with chain link and protective measures will be taken so that hunting dogs cannot penetrate her living quarters. Hunting dogs are known to scale fences and dig without stopping in order to get to their prey.  

Needless to say, this has been an extremely stressful and traumatizing situation for Pua and for all who love her.  It is heartbreaking to see a loved one in pain especially when it is your pet who is completely innocent and undeserving of someone elseʻs irresponsibility, negligence and lack of compassion.  

We are kindly asking for financial assistance to help pay for Puahonihoniʻs Vet bills and for the construction of her Pen or "Princess Puahonihoniʻs Palace."  
Thank you for taking the time to view our Pua Page and for considering making a donation. 
We wish you and your loved ones (two legged and four legged) great health, abundance, peace and joy!

She would love to be friends with you!

In closing, we wish to share "The Law of One" with all of you.
"The Law of One" is the original Law of Creation and is the Supreme Law over all Laws in all Dimensions. 

"We are all one.
When one is harmed, all are harmed.
When one is helped, all are helped.
When one is healed, all are healed.
Therefore, I set the intention that 
the Divine Idea is unfolding in Divine Timing,  
for the highest good of all. 
I have gratitude that this is done . . . 
and so it is . . .
We are all one . . ." 

Pua's ʻOhana

UPDATE on 8/14/12:

Puahonihoni now has a staph infection in the area that was majorly bitten by the dogs.  Her would was so deep that the doctor was unable to get all of the YUCKIES out of her.

Another surgery was to take place again today however, we decided that it was too invasive and stressful for her.  Dr. Pearson will be administering an antibiotic shot which we hope will be able to take care of the infection. We will see how it goes in a week. Each shot is $275. 

Puaʻs medical expenses are mounting.  So we are extremely grateful for your contribution!
