Hawaiian Humane Society Kosasa Family Campus at Hoʻopili

Opening to the public in May 2023, the Kosasa Family Campus at Hoʻopili is the Hawaiian Humane Society’s second location on Oʻahu. The Kosasa Family Campus is located at: 

91-1945 Fort Weaver Road
ʻEwa Beach, HI 96706
At the corner of Fort Weaver and Old Fort Weaver Road

 

The five-acre property, generously donated by D.R. Horton Hawaiʻi, features a 27,000-square-foot “new generation” shelter designed to optimize the behavioral, medical and socialization needs of more than 10,000 animals each year and the people who visit them.

Designed by Pacific Asia Design Group in consultation with animal care facility and design architecture experts, Animal Arts, and constructed by Allied Builders, the Kosasa Family Campus implements innovative design features in accordance with shelter best practices to minimize stress and the risk of disease transmission for the animals in our care. These include soft-close kennels, open-air circulation, individual drainage for kennels and play yards, and larger, dedicated spaces for animal enrichment and exercise.
