Got commitment issues? Instead of adopting, consider fostering a dog with Couch Crashers or a cat through Lap Crashers! Ask an Adoptions Representative at one of our Hawaiian Humane campuses about how you can short-term foster an adoptable animal.
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 fostering, volunteering, donating, 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.
