Pet Adoptions

Pet of the Week

Five-year-old Emmie would love to take a stroll on the beach with you.  He prefers to be in a one-dog family, but enjoys being around a variety of people.   


 On rare occasions, viewable animals may not be available for adoption due to medical reasons, ownership or other special circumstances.

How to Adopt at the Hawaiian Humane Society
  • You can use our website or tour our campus during adoption hours to see all of the available animals. 
  • Once you find an animal you’re interested in, sign-in at the adoptions counter to learn more about your potential new family member. 
  • An Adoptions Representative will introduce you to the animal and set up a meet-and-greet.
  • If you've found he is the perfect fit for you and your family, let us know to begin the adoption process.
  • If he’s not the right fit please let a staff member or volunteer know so you can continue to look for your new family member.

A few things to note:
  • You want to ensure the pet is the right fit for your family. We recommend spending at least an hour on campus to allow enough time to get to know your potential new family member.
  • We recommend briging all members of the family, including all dogs, to meet your potential new pet - we want to make sure it's a good fit for everyone. 
  • You must be at least 18 years of age and have a current ID in order to adopt.
  • The Hawaiian Humane Society has a retail store so you can go home with all the basic pet essentials.

Hawaiian Humane Society runs a non-profit adoptions center supported by donations. Oahu’s widest variety of dogs, cats and rabbits are available and include a spectrum of services: vaccinations, sterilization, free first visit to a participating veterinarian and a microchip.  Vaccinations vary by species and many include: bordatella, distemper, hepatitis, para influenza, leptosporosis, and parvo. 

There is no time limit on how long we’ll keep an animal. 

We do not place animals available for adoption on hold and frequently have puppies and kittens. If we don't have what you are looking for, fill out this profile and we'll keep a look out for your special preferences for 30 days, all except puppies and kittens.
