Hawaiian Humane Society


The mission of the Hawaiian Humane Society is to promote the human-animal bond and the humane treatment of all animals.


The Hawaiian Humane Society is an education and advocacy organization that shelters, protects, rescues, reunites and re-homes animals. It is Oahu’s only open-admission shelter that welcomes all animals and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Established in 1883, this non-profit organization is not a chapter of any group, and gifts made directly to this independent, local organization help Hawaii’s animals and people.

In 2018 the Hawaiian Humane Society's shelter programs helped more than 21,000 animals. This included finding new homes for 7,039 homeless pets and reuniting 2,907 lost animals with their families.

Supporting the Hawaiian Humane Society directly helps Hawaii's animals in need.


There are many ways to support the Hawaiian Humane Society: Volunteering, donating supplies, cash or check donations, gifts from IRA, life insurance, bequests, appreciated stocks. We also partner with corporations for volunteering or adoption events.
