"Why not call it the Scott Sims Humane society..." 'James "Kimo" Rosen'

James "Kimo"Rosen is a retired Professional
 Photographer living on theGarden island
 of Kaua'i with his best friend Obama Da Dog.


Why not call it the Scott Sims Humane society

The recent controversy surrounding the Kaua'i humane society is anything but  representative of humane.

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.

That person is the late veterinarian Dr. Scott Sims,"The Aloha vet."I propose a name change to the 'Scott Sims Humane society.'

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!

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.

Mahalo James. I emailed my Maile story to Samantha. The tears kept falling as I wrote each word. Even now, after we have a new sweet girl, Kau'ikaulana, in our lives, the pain is still there. Kau'i has helped to heal a broken heart and she has brought life back into our home. I know Maile would want me to share my love for Kau'i as I have so much to give this little girl.

So appropriate! Circulate a petition for people to sign in support of this brilliant suggestion!

KimoRosen said...

Mahalo Mr. B! wink emoticon we all need to contact our council members since the humane society is funded with county tax dollars! I am hoping TGI publishes this as an LTE also!

Shawn White Hurt said...

We need to get the current KHS director and board ousted first.

Jose Bulatao Jr said...

Keep the focus on the merit of the idea about naming the Humane Society in honor of Dr. Scott Sims as suggested.

Alice Monaghan said...

I sent the donation via the website so you could get it right away Samantha.

Mrs. Hurt and Company; With all due respect, please don't try to hijack the aloha we all feel for Scott, by misrepresenting his feelings as being reflections of your own. They were not, - and you know it.
