The Hawaii Island Humane Society and Kona Natural Soap Company are in the business of finding “orphans” a home.

The Hawaii Island Humane Society’s orphans are dogs, cats and other pets in need of a forever home. The Kona Natural Soap Company has “soap orphans” created from the trimmings of their all natural, vegan, and handmade soaps.

The orphan soaps have the same high quality ingredients as the other soaps made at the factory, but are a blend (a kind of mutt, as you will) so each one is different, but just as good for you.

The Kona Natural Soap Company, located next door to HIHS’ new Animal Community Center in Keauhou Mauka, is donating 10 percent of all sales of the “soap orphans” to benefit the Hawaii Island Humane Society.

“We are excited to partner with the Hawaii Island Humane Society in creating a unique fundraiser with our orphan soaps, to help fund the projects and facilities for the Hawaii Island Humane Society so they can continue their good work of finding “orphans” new homes,” said Greg Colden, co-owner of the Kona Natural Soap Company.

“The Kona Natural Soap Company’s generosity in helping raise funds for the Hawaii Island Humane Society is wonderful,” said HIHS Executive Director Donna Whitaker. “Greg and his business partner, Marty Corrigan, are already great neighbors and this fundraising partnership showcases how we are working together for the benefit of our community and the animals.”

The orphan soaps will be available starting Sept. 15 at the Kona Natural Soap Company shop at the Alii Gardens Marketplace on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday, on the company website, as well as at the Hawaii Island Humane Society for $8 for a pair of the soaps, or buy a “pack” of 10 for $35.
