Become a Foster Volunteer

The Hawaiian Humane Society’s foster care program helps animals in need of temporary tender, loving care. Shelter animals in need of care may be too young, underweight, ill, injured, recovering from surgery or require more socialization before being ready for adoption.

We provide all foster volunteers with basic supplies and medical care for the pets. Foster volunteers are responsible for transportation to and from the shelter for pick up and mandatory check up appointments.

The foster care period may vary depending on the animal’s needs and may last anywhere from 2 weeks to several months.

Foster Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. To become a volunteer, sign up for an orientation and learn more about the program and care requirements. Call 356-2229 or email for assistance.

Service Learning Projects for Students

Hawaiian Humane Society’s foster care program can also help students fulfill service learning hours with their families in their own home. Parents must attend the training class and students may earn up to 3 hours per day. Fill out a Service Learning Project Request Form to get started.
