Adoptions

Hawaiian Humane Adoptions Center

Our Adoptions team is here to help you find a pet that’s a perfect match for your family. The available animals featured at the links above are updated in real-time and change daily.

All pets for adoption receive a full medical examination and the appropriate vaccinations, de-wormer, flea and tick treatment, sterilization surgery and a microchip. Vaccinations vary by species and may include: bordetella, distemper, hepatitis, para influenza, leptospirosis and parvovirus. We also partner with many local veterinary clinics who offer your first visit free of charge.

There is no time limit on how long we’ll keep an animal and help them find the right home.

The non-profit adoptions center at Hawaiian Humane helps find homes for more than 7,000 pets each year. Our adoptions team is well-equipped to help you find the right fit for your home and lifestyle.

Adoption Process

Due to the high volume of guests, we ask that you limit your visit to 30 minutes unless you are in the adoptions queue. To best serve you, please check in at least 30 minutes before closing to meet with an adoptions representative. 

A photo ID is required at the time of all adoptions.

We recognize that some guests are in a high-risk category. To discuss alternative adoptions options, email adoptionsinfo@hawaiianhumane.org for more information on booking an appointment to meet your needs.

After you have browsed our adoptable pets and are ready to adopt or have identified a pet you want to meet, follow the signage and scan the QR code to join our virtual waitlist. You’ll be added to the queue on a first-come, first-served basis to visit with an adoptions representative and meet your new best friend.

If you need further assistance signing in digitally, visit an adoptions representative or speak to a volunteer with an iPad. We are happy to help!

Please note that if you wish to conduct a meet-and-greet between your dog and one of our available dogs, due to the high volume of visitors, you may be asked to wait outside our gate with your pet until your time slot in our adoptions queue.

If you need to make an appointment for specific adoption services (such as a meet-and-greet), visit:

All available pets are viewable on our website! Their “location” refers to where they are housed in either our Mōʻiliʻili Campus or Kosasa Family Campus Adoptions Center, with a Couch Crasher foster family or at one of our offsite adoption partners.

Interested in adopting a dog that is currently located with a Couch Crasher foster family? Complete the Couch Crasher Interest Form for the specific dog that you would like to meet! Note: Completing this form does not reserve nor hold any animal for adoption and is only to indicate interest. Adoptions are facilitated on a first come, first serve basis.
