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.


Adoption Process

View all available animals at the links above. These pages are updated in real time.

Our Adoptions Center remains closed to casual visitors. You can select one of the three below appointment options:

  1. Phone Consultation and Online Pet Selection: Appointments will be conducted remotely and you will speak with an adoptions representative by phone while looking at available pets online via our website. When a pet is selected, you will pay the adoption fee over the phone and visit our campus by end of the same business day to pick-up your new pet.
  2. In-Person Consultation: Appointments will be conducted in-person at our Mō’ili’ili campus with an adoptions representative. This service allows you 30-minutes to select a pet on-site. A 60-minute meet and greet is available for guests who would like to bring their resident dog to the appointment.
  3. Waitlist – Same Day Appointment: Same-day services may be available, but not guaranteed, on a daily basis.

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