My mother always taught me there are 3 sides to every story, yours, mine and the truth.
Some are calling the recent controversy a witch hunt, while others claim too many animals are being euthanized .
I am proposing publicly in this blog to all Kauai council members, the mayor and the board of the humane society as a first step to resolution might be a name change?
That name change would be dedicated and in memory to a man most everybody loved and who dedicated his life to the well being of all animals.

I believe the name change alone will create nothing but Goodwill and Aloha at a time that it's needed more than ever.
Scott used to say it gave him the warm fuzzies when he healed animals that he didn't think would make it.
I believe this name change would give the whole county the warm fuzzies!
All in favor say aye!
An update from the care page of Scott Sims;

Aloha to everybody that adored Scott Sims. Memorial plans are getting closer. I will notify everybody ASAP. I am waiting to get confirmation for the date and venue. I wanted to share with you that Scott was grateful to spend time with all people who meant so much to him during his life. He decided to do a few more episodes of "Aloha Vet" so he could make the point about quality of life being more important then quantity of life. And he wanted to make sure that people knew to get out and really live. "It ends all to soon"....Scott would say. But he was determined to put together a foundation that would supply people and the animals of Kauai with "pay as able" veterinary care. This was Scott's #1 wish to launch The Pegasus Foundation. You can make a donation at: www.pegasusfoundationkauai.org
I will keep everybody updated! I promise.
