We are a group of dog Lovers with a common goal:
More Homeless Dogs in Hawaii!
Our ONLY goal is to
assure that EVERY dog in Hawaii lives a happy, healthy and safe life. At HDF, euthanasia is NEVER an option for a healthy Dog!
The Hawaii Dog Foundation is a 501(c) 3
nonprofit corporation on Oahu whose primary goal is to ensure
that every dog in Hawaii is given the chance to live out its
natural life in peace, safety, and contentment. Our immediate
goal is to continue taking in homeless dogs, using our foster
care network, and finding permanent, loving homes for them.
Hawaii Dog Foundation is a no-kill dog rescue organization based
on Oahu. HDF is run entirely by volunteers. Although we don't
have a central office or shelter that you can visit, we hold
Meet & Greets on a regular basis so that you can come and
meet our dogs. Please see the
Adoption Information or
Needs A Home page for more information.
intermediate goal is to open a "no kill" shelter to accommodate
the increasing number of dogs we receive.
Our long-term goal,
our dream, is to open a sanctuary where, additionally, we will
be able to permanently house those dogs who, for whatever
reason, are not adoptable. In order to achieve these goals we
will be involved in various fundraising activities throughout
the Hawaiian Islands. Results of our fundraising efforts
providing food, transportation and support for our foster
families as well as advertising costs involved in finding
permanent homes for all homeless dogs in Hawaii.
We LOVE 'em all! Big Dogs,
Small Dogs, Medium Dogs! Whether they are short haired or long
haired, purebreds, mutts or poi dogs, house dogs or yard
Canines of every shape, size and color! We are especially fond
of people who love dogs: LIKE YOU! That's why you are here!
Please: sit back, relax and browse our site. Your comments and
feedback are welcome and appreciated.
Please Join us as we strive to reach our goal of
No More Homeless Dogs in Hawaii!
Our immediate financial goal is to raise the necessary funding
to acquire a shelter to house the stray dogs we come across. We have
also joined the Best Friends Network (BestFriends.org)
and are receiving a tremendous amount of support and information
But before we can do that:
We are working diligently to build a Foster Care network to
temporarily house the Dogs we are working with. Our primary focus
will ALWAYS be to find lifelong permanent good homes for them.
