We're happy to announce that on June 1 the Hawaiian Humane Society will enter our next phase of response to COVID-19 and will be expanding more of our services. Throughout our response to the COVID-19 crisis, a key priority has been to keep our animals, our guests and our staff safe. We have been carefully following guidance from our state and city leaders as well as public health officials and will continue this practice as we moving forward. As more programs and services resume operations, responsible physical distancing and proper face coverings are still required on campus.

Item donations directly help people and pets in need across Oahu. There are a few items that we are currently in particular need of, which can be purchased through Amazon Smile and delivered directly to our Moiliili campus!

Donate via Hawaiian Humane's Amazon Smile Wish List

As the Hawaiian Humane Society remains open with essential services, we continue to help people and pets through various functions like adoptions, foster care, admissions, our Pet Food Bank and more. Your donation of food, treats or needed items goes directly to animals utilizing these programs on campus or off-site. Currently, we are especially in need of harnesses, reusable tote bags (used for providing supplies to volunteers) and leashes, in addition to other items. All donations help animals in our care or go back to the community to support local pets.

You can send any Amazon Smile Wish List items directly to our campus at:

Mahalo for your kokua!



A few weeks ago, Lisa Ann and her family adopted Kia’i, a 4-month-old puppy. After living in his new home for a week, Kia’i quickly formed a special bond with his big sister. The two love spending time together, even if that time is spent napping! Mahalo to Lisa Ann and her family for welcoming Kia’i into their home and giving him so much love (and snuggles)!

As we work toward re-opening in a manner that's safest for our animals, volunteers and staff, adoptions continue to be by appointment only with scheduling available by email request to adoptionsappointment@hawaiianhumane.org. If you're interested in learning more about adopting, send an email and our team will reach out to coordinate next steps. ⁣⁣
