Grace was found with five dead puppies and four live pups. Sadly, after her rescue the surviving pups passed away. They were all infested with hookworms. Poor Grace was emaciated, and we had to feed her with a syringe to help build her strength. She was so skinny and weak. However, with five trips to the vet, and about six weeks of rehab Grace is a whole new dog! Now, she is all ready to go into a fur-ever home! Grace is a sweet girl who loves people, attention, and walks. After her initial excitement wears off, Grace does really well on a leash. It will be best for Grace if she is the only dog at home. Call KARES 808-333-6299 to meet Grace!

NONA & SOFIE
Because two are better than one, right? Nona and Sofie are two sweet girls found abandoned in Ocean View. They were pregnant and gave birth to 15 pups within days of rescue. Nona and Sofie are a bonded pair and need to be placed together. Nona is very social, but Sofie is still very scared, and needs time to build trust. Sofie loves her foster dad and will go to him anytime. The girls will do well in a fenced yard hanging out-- they are great watch dogs! Nona and Sofie will alert you when strangers come by, but will stop barking as soon as the stranger goes past. They are responsive to voice commands to stop barking if needed. They are leash-trained, and love walks. If you are ready for this dynamic duo, give KARES a call today! 808-333-6299

This is Clifford, the little red rescue dog. Teresa at Ocean Paws Grooming rescued him a little over three weeks ago. He was running on a road that has very little traffic. I believe that he may have been dumped by his previous human. When he was found, he was in very poor shape and clearly has been abused. Teresa is has continued to nurse him back to health as his foster mom! Clifford is now ready for his forever home! He is about a year old, neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated. Clifford still has a few skin issues that he is being treated for and he is learning to have manners. He is already almost 100% potty trained! He knows not to beg for food and patience which is a hard one for such a small puppy. He is a very special boy learning quickly. Even after everything he has been through, he is very sweet he gets along well with other dogs. He may do best however in a home without a male human. He is very fearful of men at this time. If you feel like your household maybe a good fit and you have time and love to give him in abundance. please reach out so we can help to get Clifford his forever home!
This handsome fella with his ears blowing in the wind is Mauka. He is a shy heeler/shepherd mix just looking for somebody to love.
