Where are you located?
Where are your animals?
All of our animals are in PAWS of Hawaii foster homes across O’ahu being cared for by families until adopted.
How do I meet an animal I am interested in and what is the adoption process?
What are your adoption requirements?
Every dog has different requirements for their own needs and personality. Our main adoption guideline is our age requirement. We only have quick approvals for applicants over 23 years of age. Those 18-23 may still adopt but they would need to first complete a successful fostering period.
How can I donate?
How will my donation be used?

What care is provided for the animals prior to adoption?
Our 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.
Can I have an animal for trail period before committing to adoption?
This is dependent on the animal and situation. If you are interested in a dog but would first like to have a trial, please fill out the adoption form. Let us know via facebook, instagram or email us at email@example.com that you would like to have a foster to adopt trial.
We do not allow trials with our puppies. If you would like to have a trial with a puppy first to see if you are ready, please sign up to foster!
