Welcome To Our Rescue!

We are dedicated to rescuing animals in Hawaii, especially those abused, abandoned, and neglected.  Our mission is to place our rescues in safe, happy, well-balanced homes.  All of our animals are placed with foster families who rehabilitate, care for, and love each one while waiting to be adopted.

Some dogs come into our lives and quickly go
Some stay awhile
They leave pawprints on our hearts
And we are never the same...

Izzy was a resuce found on the side of a mountain.  She had dermadectic mange which she survived but has never regained all of her fur so she partly bald.  Its been coming back slowly over the years so she might get some more.  She is now healthy and happy.

Izzy loves to go for walks and is a great walking companion.  She is very snuggly and kids love to come and hug her.  She "roos" when she wants attention or to play.  She shakes paws and rings her bells to go out.  She is very obedient and well behaved in general. She is fine to just hang out while you are gone and happy to see you when you come home.  She loves to just be with you.  She loves to snuggle and will crawl in your lap on the couch if you let her.

Coco was once a chained dog. He is tender hearted and extremely obedient.  He knows his left paw from his right!  He can learn new things very quickly.  He loves to sit on his cot in the back yard and watch for squirels and ravens.  He gets along with other dogs and likes to think he's in charge but he's actually at the bottom of the pile and gets bossed around.  He's a good sport about it:)  He is good with kids and allows them to lead him and tell him what to do.

Coco had his back toe removed because of a growth.  He still loves to go for long walks or run short distances with the bike.  He loves to snuggle and sit with you and chew his bone. He is fine hanging around the house while you are at work and doesn't get into anything.

Lilo's rescuer... "I have been feeding the feral cats at Kualoa Regional park since late 2013. During the past year I have observed a dog in the park at night. At first we thought she lived nearby. We called her the "ghost dog" because as soon as we would see her she would be gone. About 4 months ago, I noticed that she would enter the Parks and Recreation equipment yard at night, probably to sleep under the trucks. I started feeding her. She would not feed while I was there. A couple of times I hid behind trees and observed her come feed about 10 minutes after I left. I could tell she was female who recently had puppies. "

She was able to catch Lilo and she is being fostered by Poi Dogs and Popoki.  Please email us or fill out an adoption application if you are interested in giving Lilo a home.  Aloha!
