Curious onlookers watch Kauai Drug and Veterans Court volunteers work to remove invasive shrubs from the creek that provides fresh water to the Kauai Animal Education Center.

The Kauai Animal Education Center in Kapahi got a helping hand during a recent community service event sponsored by the Kauai Drug and Veterans Courts. A team of staff and clients of the programs gathered at the center on July 26 to remove invasive shrubs, plant native flora and feedstock for the animals, and clean up the site’s creek, which brings fresh water to animals and plants.

The Kauai Animal Education Center is a non-profit that provides shelter and care for abandoned and neglected animals at its three-acre property on the east side of Kauai. It also offers kids camps, a mobile petting zoo, and other educational opportunities for the community.

“The staff and clients of the Kauai Drug and Veterans Courts wish to thank Christy and Keola Wong, and all the staff and volunteers of the Kauai Animal Education Center for affording us the opportunity to work in such an amazing environment,” said Martin Steinhaus, Kauai Drug and Veterans Court Administrator.

Court treatment clients perform several community service projects throughout the year. Events are now scheduled for September with the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) and the Division of Forestry and Wildlife in October.

For information about how you can become a supporter of the Kauai Drug Court and/or the Kauai Veterans Treatment Court, contact the program administrator at (808) 482-2363.
