Mahalo to all of our Sponsors!
KARES recipient of Mutts Across America 2022 Award
2022 Grey Muzzle Organization Grant
KARES is one of 78 animal welfare groups chosen from 344 applicants nationwide to receive a 2022 grant from the Grey Muzzle Organization to help our Hawaii Island senior dogs. The grant will provide medical and dental care to at-risk rescued and owned senior dogs, those aged 7 years and older. The award of $10,000 is intended to make a difference in the lives of older dogs in support of the vision of “a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid.”
PETCO LOVE Grant Award
KARES is honored to be recognized by Petco Love (formerly Petco Foundation) with a $7,500 grant award to support our life saving community programs of canine spay and neuter and helping pets find loving homes. Together we are partnering with Petco Love to improve the quality of life for our island pets in need.
Bissell Pet Foundation Grant Award
We can’t say it enough times: if you want to prevent pet overpopulation, spay and neuter your pets, both cats and dogs. This will make a difference to reduce the number of pets in shelters and rescues. The Bissell Pet Foundation is committed to this life-saving work and has provided the funds for spay and neuter surgeries and vaccinations for our island dogs. You may recognize the Bissell name as associated with home care products.
County of Hawaii
KARES was awarded a grant for spay and neuter of companion dogs as a continuation of the County's support over the past 7 years to help control the overpopulation of island dogs. We thank the County for sharing in this community service to provide sterilization of almost 800 dogs for the benefit of the people and animals of Hawaii.
