Foster Care

Hawaiian Humane Society’s foster care program helps to save thousands of orphaned animals, as well as owned animals in which families are in crises. Nearly 150 animals are in foster care at any given time so more providers are always needed. This program can also help students fulfill service learning hours with their families in their own home. Contact Lorraine Shaughnessy at lshaughnessy@hawaiianhumane.org or 356-2229 for more info.
