Pets are Family

No one should have to choose between a roof over their head or a pet. About 375,000 pets share our lives and about 60% of Oahu’s homes have one. The Hawaiian Humane Society’s Pets in Housing program works to increase the number of residences that allow pets.

We work with landlords and tenants, associations, property and resident managers, realtors, as well as people who love animals and people who don’t. Workable solutions can be achieved for the benefit of all.

Recent legislation now allows landlords to charge an additional pet deposit to renters. Read more here.
Policies that ban pets increase the numbers relinquished to shelters, limit the pool of qualified applicants, and unnecessarily penalize the majority of pet owners who are responsible.
