Lost & Found

Reuniting Lost Pets

We are Oʻahu’s official pet lost and found.  Animals arrive at Hawaiian Humane throughout the day and night, and our lists of lost and found pets are updated daily.



If you’ve lost a pet

Please act immediately if your pet is lost, as he or she may already be at Hawaiian Humane. Animals that arrive without identification such as a microchip, license, or tag are held for 48 hours before being evaluated for adoption, so prompt action is necessary.

Please complete a Lost Report and head to the Admissions Center at either our Mōʻiliʻili Campus or Kosasa Family Campus at Hoʻopili during normal operating hours to walk-through to see if your pet has already been turned into our care. You can also view a real-time updated listing of Found Pets both with Hawaiian Humane or in community care on our website. Bring any proof of ownership that you have including photos, veterinary records, or licensing or microchip information. If you are away and a pet sitter is claiming your pet, please complete the Consent for Care Form.

If your pet is microchipped, licensed or tagged, but your contact information has changed, please contact our Lost and Found at 808-356-2228 and immediately update your information with the manufacturer of your pet’s microchip. 


If you’ve found a pet

If you have found a stray pet, please bring it to the Admissions Center at our Mōʻiliʻili Campus or Pet Kokua Resource Center at Kosasa Family Campus at Hoʻopili. Please bring dogs in on a leash and cats or other small animals in a secure carrier.

If you have found a pet and would prefer to care for it in your own home, please file a Found Report.

There is no fee to bring a stray animal into either Admissions or Pet Kokua Resource Centers.
