Welcome to our weekly adopt-an-animal feature that we recently revived! We’ve partnered with local rescue organization KARES (Kohala Animal Relocation and Education Service) to give Big Island Pulse readers who are looking to adopt a pet a look at some of the wonderful animals that they have available for adoption. This week we are getting to know Monkey and Pata, two beautiful female dogs. They’re just two of many adoptable pets available, but they top their list for needing a home.
Monkey and Pata are sweet, soft, loving girls, available for adoption with KARES. This pair, who are likely sisters, are friendly, loving, and above all, loyal. They came to KARES after being found in their home after their human passed — they stayed by his side, guarding over him for days before he was found. It’s a very sad story, but one that we hope will have a happy ending for these two. And of course, we will only adopt them out together. They’ve already lost their human, we don’t want them to lose each other.
They are approximately 7 years old, medium-sized dogs. They are mixed breed dogs, with unknown breeds contributing to their beauty.
Monkey and Pata would be best in a home with other dogs that are larger than them, but may not be a good fit with smaller dogs and other small animals. These two sweeties would love to be part of a family, and they’re just waiting for the right one to come their way.
