HSVMA Hawaii State Representative

Dr. Eric Jayne is an Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine graduate. He is currently working toward a master’s degree in Indigenous Law through the University of Oklahoma. Since 2000, Dr. Jayne has collaborated with the Humane Society of the United States in Arkansas, Alaska and Hawaii.

Since 2016 Dr. Jayne has worked with a number of animal groups on Molokai, Oahu and the Big Island.  He works with several feral cat groups in Honolulu and on the Big Island. The Honolulu groups are collaborating with one another and the Honolulu-based Hawaiian Humane Society in a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program that will hopefully provide a long-term solution to the community cat overpopulation problem.

On the Big Island, Dr. Jayne has been working with groups in the Hilo and Ocean View Estates areas providing low- and no-cost spay and neuter services to owned animals. Dr. Jayne is also involved with an ongoing HSUS-funded research project studying Toxoplasmosis infection in Hawaiian feral cats.

Dr. Jayne also serves as the HSVMA Arkansas State Representative. Contact Dr. Jayne at [email protected]
