Ways to Help
KARES Foster Program
If you and your family love animals consider volunteering to be a foster parent.
Find out how you and your family can help save lives.
KARES finds homes for approximately 400 dogs and cats every year.
KARES has provided free spay and neuter surgeries to almost 4,400 companion animals over the past 7 years, primarily to pet owners who cannot afford this service.
KARES provides access to affordable pet health and wellness services.
KARES IS ESSENTIAL
KARES IS NOT CLOSED…. WE ARE ESSENTIAL!
KARES is always available, especially during this time of need in our community. More than ever, we must continue to find temporary and permanent homes for these precious homeless souls.🐶🐱
Adoptions – we deliver
FREE Spay & Neuter (Monday – Friday)
What can you do to help?
There is a dire need for dog and cat food, wet and dry, to support our homeless community and no-kill sanctuary.
We are asking anyone who is able, to buy a bag or can of dog/cat food at the Kona Petco and leave it in our special Coronavirus Crisis Relief bin located at the registers.

Monthly and one-time donation options are available. All donations are tax deductible.
CONSIDER FOSTERING OR ADOPTING
Why not quarantine with a companion and try fostering?
Fosters and permanent homes are needed to lower the high euthanasia rate at Hawaii Island Humane Society (see our website for current statistics, the island kill rate is 10% higher than the national average)
