PetWalk is Going Virtual October 24!
We are so excited to announce our first virtual PetWalk! The work we do to help more than 20,000 animals each year never stops, even during difficult times like these. Our priority is to serve all of O’ahu’s animals and people who need our help while also ensuring the health and safety of our community.

Rallying to Protect Oʻahu’s Animals
Like so many others, the Hawaiian Humane Society has been dramatically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the constantly changing reality we continue to face; however, we have also witnessed a rallying of the community like never before. Despite being faced with hardship, Oahu has stepped up to powerfully declare that our animals matter and we are truly grateful. Learn more in Anna Neubauer’s newest President & CEO’s message.
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Precautions
We’re always so grateful for the many donations our community of supporters drops off at our shelter. Towels, sheets, newspapers and other supplies really help make our work possible. However, due to the potential spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), we would like to ask that, for the time being, you restrict your donation to clean/used towels only. We’ve set up a process for making sure that we keep our animals and staff safe when receiving towels that are currently in short supply. We are still also gratefully welcoming donations of unopened pet food and other new items. Our Amazon Smile wish list is also a great way to donate.

COVID-19 Pet Tips
It’s important to have a plan in place to protect your pets in the event you contract the COVID-19 virus. Here are some steps you can take:
– Identify a family member or friend who can care for your pet(s) if someone in the household should become ill.
– Have crates, food and extra supplies on hand for quick movement of pets.
– Keep all animal vaccines up to date in the event that temporary boarding becomes necessary.
– Ensure all medications are documented with dosages and administering directions. Including the prescription from your veterinarian is also helpful.
– Make sure that your pet has proper identification—a microchip with updated contact info and a collar with ID tag.
