All Day

Our kennels are full – we need your help to find loving homes for our adoptable dogs so that we can provide optimal care to the animals that need us most.

Start the month off right with Bissell Pet Foundation’s Empty the Shelters National Adoption Event! From May 1-15, 2024, The Bissell Pet Foundation will be sponsoring 100% of all adoption fees for all adult dogs and cats (one year of age and older) at Hawaiian Humane Society’s Mōʻiliʻili and Kosasa Family campuses.

If you’ve been considering pet adoption, don’t miss this opportunity! Hawaiian Humane has an unprecedented number of adoptable pets, including puppies, kittens, adult dogs and cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and more. Find your new best friend today!

Did you know?

The average cost to provide the level of care and services that we offer each adoptable animal in our care is approximately $560, which varies widely depending on the needs of each specific animal. This can range from routine vaccinations, flea/tick/heartworm preventatives, medical and behavioral evaluations and spay/neuter surgery to complex emergency veterinary procedures and recovery.

Can’t commit to adopting?

There are ways you can support our community, alleviate shelter space constraints, and help animals in need by being a Couch Crasher family or fosteringvolunteeringdonating, promoting spay/neuter initiatives, or, if you or someone you know are faced with the difficult decision to surrender a pet, consider the rehoming resources available on our website, like Home to Home.

What’s the value of hosting an adoption special?

Adoption specials offer incentives to promote pet adoption, allow us to spotlight long-stay pets/fosters, reduce barriers to pet ownership, and create more space in overcrowded shelters for vulnerable pets who need us most. Contrary to common misconception, research and published studies indicate that the cost of adoption is not a factor when it comes to responsible pet ownership and a family’s ability to afford a pet long-term. In fact, there is no statistical difference in pet retention or the ability to cover necessary veterinary care for adopted pets between paid fee or fee-waived adopters.
