The Big Island continues to face unprecedented numbers of unwanted dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens. When you find a dog or cat, if you are able to secure the animal and have it scanned for a microchip, that is the best way to reunite pets with their owners. Any veterinarian's office or rescue should be able to scan for you.
Sadly, many animals are not microchipped, and animals are facing the dire consequences including being hit by cars, starvation, neglect, or abuse. We ask that if you are able to secure and hold onto an animal, please do so. We recommend local Facebook community pages, Craigslist, and Nextdoor. Contact Hawaii County Animal Control to report any lost or found dogs.
Spay and neuter for your own pets is available. Please contact us for more information.
