Investigations, Rescues & Laws

Report Cruelty Now
We investigate all tips of potential animal cruelty and abuse. Call 356-2250 and we’ll respond to all calls daily between 8 am and 5 pm. Our officers specialize in animal law enforcement and criminal justice. We are the only authority outside of HPD that can rescue animals and investigate cruelty on behalf of the City & County of Honolulu. We walk a fine line between education and enforcement, exercising both based on what’s best for the animals. Often we find that where the law lacks, our influence as advisors and partners with pet owners yields far better results.
