|The little man who started
it all - Malkin Nehayo - at 8
weeks old (left) and then
all grown up (right) -
already with a mischievous
eye. Well, two mischievous
eyes in three different
colors, to be exact.

Malkin wooing and Paikea finishing off the
welcome with one of her many silly howls
|In the beginning...
Raven and Ridley were just two young women with a bunch of crazy cats hoping to start a shelter for felines
with FIV/FIP, feral colonies, and other various health and behavioral problems. But then they adopted a
devious black and white husky who changed their lives forever. Malkin may have planned this from the
beginning - after all, both women seem to have neon signs over their heads that read "sucker" in every
language known to pets - but it was news to them. However, the Potato Chip Syndrome is a powerful
addiction, and it has Raven and Ridley right in the palm of its paws. They adopted a second sibe, and Paikea
aided and abetted her brother's schemes. Malkin saw this and found it good. Soon, these two former "cat
ladies" began to think of how they could help to save Siberian Huskies too. "And what about other Northern
Breed dogs and wolf-hybrids too?" Malkin asked with one eye (the other eye simply said, "Gimme more
Yummy Chummies!"). And so Alaskan Huskies, Alaskan Malamutes, Samoyeds, and mixes and wolfdogs
became part of the grand plan too. And Malkin saw this, and found it good.
Raven wrote a book about Siberian Huskies, inspired by all the mischievous and wonderful and expensive
and destructive things that Malkin and Paikea do. Malkin likes having a book dedicated to him; though no
one is certain if Paikea even notices since reading doesn't generally involve jumping or having the Zoomies.
Raven and Ridley decided that more than half of the book's profits would go to benefit other husky rescue
groups. Then Ridley became mesmerized by Malkin's eyes and suddenly said, "Why don't we start our own
husky rescue? Maybe take in a foster sibe or two, hmm? And where are my Yummy Chummies?"
And so they started their own rescue, and gave their sibes lots of tasty treats.
And Malkin saw all of his ideas and found they were very good indeed.
Husky Havoc RRT (stands for Rescue, Referral, and Transport) has become a reality. It's grown from a
dream to a daily vocation, with lots of work that is immensely rewarding. The goal of frequent transports,
shelter pulls, and fostering? That's where they're at right now, and loving it despite the stress. Okay, so the
first fostering bit went overboard and became a "foster failure." But Paikea saw this and deemed it good;
since Neenah is great fun to pounce! Some day, they'll be running a kennel just for their fosters, and
achieving their Big Dream of opening a no-kill shelter....for dogs of all breeds and mixes, horses, ferrets,
rats, rabbits, and of course: cats with a host of health and behavioral problems (after all, the Feline Nine
have been working their Mind Melds long before Malkin and Paikea were even born). And Malkin smiles upon
this grand scheme, and Neenah brings her "babydoll" into it, and Paikea runs circles around it, and the cats
couldn't care less as long as their food keeps coming and they can take over the softest furniture in the
house. So come join Ridley, Raven, Malkin, Paikea, Neenah, and the Feline Nine on this grand adventure,
and help them all to make Husky Havoc a grand success.

|And then there's Beans.
Hurricane Neenah came
in as a Husky Havoc

sometimes the forever
home you're "prepping"
them for is your own. We
couldn't part with her.
Beans is the class clown.
"Dignity" is a foreign
