Case Background

The Hawaiian Humane Society rescued 7 dogs from a Crosspointe rental unit near the Stadium in December 2008 after receiving reports of a strong odor and incessant barking. The dogs were left unattended for a long period of time (possibly several weeks) without food, water and starving – nearly dead, living in their own filth.

The Hawaiian Humane Society obtained custody of the animals from the dog owner, an inmate at HCC who had left his girlfriend/friend as caregiver. The dogs were immediately transported to the Humane Society for a medical evaluation. They were later rehabilitated in foster care. The owner surrendered all 7 dogs to the Humane Society and we found new homes for all.

 The appointed caregiver Lira Ikeda was charged with 7 counts of animal cruelty in December 2008. She failed to appear in court several times, had a bench warrant out for her arrest. It was only when her mug shot was posted on the Honolulu Crimestoppers Website under the Animal Crimestoppers division was she found and arrested within 24 hours.


Last September, individuals confronted a group of four men in the Kapaa Quarry area. Two of the men from the group admitted to killing the feral cats in the area. The cats were a part of a colony being cared for by caregivers. The Honolulu Police Department was called at the time of the confrontation, however only two of the four were identified.


The Hawaiian Humane Society and the Honolulu Police Department are seeking information on the identification of the two unidentified individuals and any information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of four individuals involved in the cat killings.  Anyone with information should contact 955-8300 immediately.



Beginning in May the Hawaiian Humane Society received reports of peacocks and cats allegedly being deliberately poisoned in the Makaha Valley Resort area. Reports state that 10 to 11 peacocks have been poisoned since the beginning of May.  The Hawaiian Humane Society and the Honolulu Police Department are seeking information on the alleged poisonings and the identification of the individuals involved. Anyone with information should contact ANIMAL CRIMESTOPPERS at 955-8300 immediately.
