Here are some of the ways you can help KARES

Make a Donation

KARES is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible. Your donation saves lives and is very much appreciated. Thank you for making a difference!!

Become a Foster Parent

Whether it is 2 days or 2 weeks, homes are needed for pets until they can be permanently adopted. It's a wonderful way to enjoy the love and attention of an animal without making a permanent commitment.

Adopt a dog or cat

Open your heart and home to a pet in need.

Volunteer Program

KARES is committed to continuing our positive, lifesaving efforts for the animals and people of Hawaii Island and we need your help. Volunteers are needed at Petco and as fosters.  Your donation of time and love saves these precious lives.

Become an Ambassador

Tell your friends and family. Encourage responsible pet ownership in your community. Help us find the perfect pet and pet owner match.

Spay and neuter all of your pets

This is essential to control pet overpopulation and prevent increasing numbers of feral cats and homeless dogs and cats.
