Hawaiian Humane Adoptions Center

Our Adoptions team is here to help you find a pet that’s a perfect match for your family. The available animals featured at the links above are updated in real-time and change daily.

All pets for adoption receive a full medical examination and the appropriate vaccinations, de-wormer, flea and tick treatment, sterilization surgery and a microchip. Vaccinations vary by species and may include: bordetella, distemper, hepatitis, para influenza, leptospirosis and parvovirus. We also partner with many local veterinary clinics who offer your first visit free of charge.

There is no time limit on how long we’ll keep an animal and help them find the right home.

The non-profit adoptions center at Hawaiian Humane helps find homes over 7,000 pets each year. Our adoptions team is well-equipped to help you find the right fit for your home and lifestyle.


Mahalo to our PetWalk 2021 sponsor, Subaru Hawaiʻi by Servco for their continued support of our island’s animals!


Adoption Process

Our Mōʻiliʻili Adoptions Center is now open to the public. Upon arrival, please remain outside of our front gate and join the waitlist by scanning the QR code posted on our entrance gate. Staff members will be assisting guests on campus in groups and in the order that they sign-up on the waitlist. 

While visiting, a face mask is required at all times while on campus. Please also remember to maintain a 6 feet social distance between groups.  Due to the high volume of visitors, we ask that you limit your visit to 30 minutes. 

If you wish to make an appointment for a set time, please click on the button on this page to schedule. Please note: we are no longer facilitating phone consults/phone adoptions; however, if you wish to know more about one of the animals available for adoption, you can visit in person or call us at 808-356-2218.

If you wish to conduct a meet-and-greet between your dog and one of our available dogs, you will still be required to wait outside our gate with your pet until a staff member is available to assist you. 


A photo ID is required at the time of all adoptions.
