Congratulations Secondary Handlers!
Michelle Motas and Cheryl Afuso-Sumimoto successfully completed Secondary Handler training with Hospital Facility Dog Mikey at The Queen's Medical Center. Both Michelle and Cheryl work in the Inpatient Oncology Department and will take Mikey on their rounds to patients that are receiving treatment. Mikey was placed at Queen's in May, and is making a positive impact with everyone he encounters.

Puppy of the Month - Onyx!

This future-hero-in-training is just 4-months old and couldn't be sweeter! She is playful, curious and very friendly. She is doing very well in Kindergarten Puppy Class and loves to learn. She is being puppy-raised by our long-time volunteers, Lisa Gentry and family. Mahalo Lisa, for giving Onyx such a good start! 
Oahu Trip!
Grace went to the big city of Honolulu to experience airports, planes, traffic and tall buildings...quite different from Maui! She also visited with staff members at G70, an architectural and engineering firm in downtown Honolulu. Grace was accompanied by puppy-in-training, Onyx, and the two brought smiles and love to everyone they encountered. One staff member said, "We loved having Grace and Onyx visit today. They brought such joy to all of us!"

Charity Walk Success!

ADH staff and volunteers got in some miles at the 43rd annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk this month. There was taiko drumming, aid stations with lots of goodies, live music and a delicious breakfast served up by the hotels. Thanks to everyone who donated to this event, as ADH will receive a percentage match by the Visitor Industry. A special thanks goes to our dedicated volunteer and fundraiser, Declan Levin, who raised the most money on our behalf.

Training Class at the Shops at Wailea

Nalu, Olu, and Ozzie had a fun field trip to The Shops at Wailea this past week. They loved being around so many new people! The puppies practiced walking next to their trainers while ignoring other people passing by, even children with ice cream cones! They also learned how to ride in the elevator to the second floor of the mall. Everyone loved watching them practice their skills and it brought a smile to visitors who were missing their dogs at home.
