Our Mission

The mission of Hawaii Island Humane Society is to prevent cruelty to animals, eliminate pet overpopulation, and enhance the bond between humans and animals. Our organization, established in 1965, is serving the Big Island community with three shelters island wide. Our services include: Shelter for homeless, stray, injured, lost and abandoned animals, animal adoptions, Humane Education Programs for children and administration and promotion of the Spay/Neuter Community Assistance Program.

The Hawaii Island Humane Society is the only open-admittance shelter on the Big Island with no time limits. Every year, more than 14,000 animals come through our shelter doors. Many are infirm, ill-treated, injured, too young or elderly. Some have never known the security of a home, while others have lost the only home they've ever known. We accept any animal, regardless of age, species, condition, circumstance or behavioral issues at all three shelters island wide.
