Kona Transfer Station (AKA Dump) Cats Need Fresh Water to Survive
The abandoned cats at the Kona dump/waste transfer station often have no choice but to drink from dirty, filthy puddles. Volunteers try to keep their provided water tubs topped-off, but if it’s a hot day or if there are few volunteers, the cats can and do run out of water.
Remember, these cats are not feral; they are abandoned. Someone drove to the dump, opened their car door and tossed their cat out to live in the hot, unforgiving area in and near the dump. They didn’t choose to live here, they didn’t migrate here, but they are discarded here. There is no food, no water, no shelter.
The cats rely upon the generosity and love of local volunteers, and they are a part of the capture/spay/release program.
The Cats Need Water Daily
The abandoned cats at the Kona dump need fresh water daily, especially so when it’s hot and dry. All together, they drink around 10-12 gallons of water a day.
Can You Help Water the Cats?
If you go to the dump once a week, can you bring spare water for 10 locations? It doesn’t need to be any special water — it can be filled with your garden hose. There are water bowls around the dump that are for the cats there.

Who will speak and take action for the cats? They can only survive via your kindness and generosity. We — and the cats — say mahalo for sharing your aloha! Mahalo for sharing with a friend.
