Kauai man arrested on animal cruelty charges

Russell Soares

WAILUA – A Kapa‘a man has been arrested on animal cruelty charges following the discovery of malnourished dogs at his home.

On Tuesday, December 10, humane officers from the Kaua‘i Humane Society (KHS) responded to a complaint of animal mistreatment at the home of Russell Soares, 35, on Waipouli Road in Kapa‘a.

Upon arrival, the officers discovered five adult dogs and three puppies in various cages on the property.  One of the dogs was dead and at least one other appeared to be emaciated.

The Kaua‘i Police Department was called to assist.  Mr. Soares claimed ownership of the dogs and was arrested and transported to police cellblock for booking on two misdemeanor charges of Cruelty to Animals, Second Degree.  He has since been released pending a January court date.

The dogs were transported to the Kaua‘i Humane Society for treatment, and a necropsy was conducted on the deceased dog.  According to Penny Cistaro, Executive Director of KHS, the necropsy revealed that the dog died of starvation.

Cistaro says their investigation into the treatment and condition of the animals is continuing to determine if additional charges are warranted.
