Capital Campaign

The Goal:

To build an accessible second campus and a welcoming place for all animals on Oʻahu.  

 “As more animals need us, it is our responsibility to help. They are helpless and vulnerable. We must protect them and be their voice. Our capacity to love animals and ensure their wellbeing is a reflection of who we are as human beings.”

-Ginny Tiu, Capital Campaign Committee Co-Chair and Board Member

 

Where We Are:

 

The Need:

We need to provide services where the animals need us.

More than 60 percent of West O‘ahu residents currently have pets and that number is expected to increase over time. A large percentage of residents who reside in West O‘ahu and other areas outside of Honolulu’s urban core find it difficult and inconvenient to access services provided on our Mōʻiliʻili campus. We are confident that this second campus will meet growing demands and changing needs of the community in West O‘ahu.

 

The Plan:

The 5-acre site on Old Fort Weaver Road, a generous gift from D.R. Horton, will provide a full range of services to the west O’ahu community including (but not limited to):

  • A “new generation” shelter designed to optimize the behavioral, medical and socialization needs of the animals and the people who visit them.
  • Services available 7-days-a-week to support the needs of the community. 
  • Adoption services and facilities. 
  • Community spay/neuter services. 
  • Volunteer and educational opportunities for youth and adults. 
  • An off-leash dog park for the community. 

“We are thrilled to begin the construction of this longtime vision. We recognize the importance of making services more accessible across O’ahu, for all of our island’s people and pets. This project supports our mission to promote the human-animal bond and the humane treatment of all animals and underlines our commitment to create a more compassionate community for people and animals for generations to come.”

Thousands of animals need a safe space to be welcomed and to receive care.  There is much to do, and we can’t do it without your generous support.
