PAWS of Hawaii has been able to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home over 1300 animals in need. Comprised entirely of dedicated volunteers, PAWS of Hawaii provides foster care for abandoned animals on O'ahu.
PAWS of Hawaii does not have a physical location available for the public, rescued animals are in PAWS of Hawaii foster homes across O’ahu being cared for by families until adopted.
To meet any animal, please fill out the adoption form. Once it is completed please send a message via facebook, instagram or email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know you have completed the form and which animal(s) you are looking to visit with.
Adoption forms can take anywhere from 1-5 days to be fully processed. Once processed a meet and greet can be set up. If the meet and greet goes well the animal can be adopted and taken home at that time or within a couple days.
Every dog has different requirements for their own needs and personality. The main adoption guideline is the age requirement. There is only quick approvals for applicants over 23 years of age. Those 18-22 may still adopt but they would need to first complete a successful fostering period.
Adult dogs have a $150 adoption fee.
Puppies have a $300 adoption fee.
The PAWS team provides extensive care for each animal that comes into PAWS of Hawaii. The dogs are given flea baths, cleaned, nails trimmed and ears cleaned when they first come in. They are provided with good food and a loving foster home.
All dogs are:
- checked by a veterinarian
- treated for fleas and ticks
- on heartworm prevention
- on intestinal worm prevention
- checked for heartworm or Ehrlichia if necessary.
Care may vary from animal to animal dependent on their needs.
FINDING THE RIGHT FUR BABE FOR YOUR OHANA
If you are interested in a dog but would first like to have a trial, please fill out the adoption form. Let PAWS know via facebook, instagram or email email@example.com that you would like to have a foster to adopt trial. If the animal has other adoption applicants ready and willing to take him/her in a trial may not be approved.
PAWS of HAWAII does not allow trials with puppies. If you would like to have a trial with a puppy first to see if you are ready, please sign up to foster!
PAWS provides adoptions throughout the State of Hawai’i. Additional costs will include the flight costs and a carrier (if needed). There will also be an agreement that you will pay to return the dog to O’ahu in the event the adoption does not work out.
We do not allow out of state adoptions at this time. But please contact your local rescue to find a great match!
All animals adopted from PAWS of Hawaii are required to be returned to PAWS of Hawaii if you are unable to care for them. Although the goal is to place rescues in homes where they will be loved and cared for the balance of their lives if you are unable to care for them please follow these steps. Send a message to facebook, instagram or email firstname.lastname@example.org with
- your name
- animals name
- microchip (if possible).
Although PAWS may be able to take the animal back the next day they ask that you provide them with approximately 10 working days to find the animal a new family. This is to help ensure the animal is not moved around too much. If after the 10 working days a family to adopt can not be found, PAWS will take the animal back in and place them in a loving foster home until they are adopted.
If you cannot keep the animal, but a close friend or family would like to take them in, contact PAWS and they will take down the info of the new owners and transfer the animal’s info into their name.
