About our adoptions.

K9 Kokua provides any necessary treatment to get the dog healthy prior to adoption (this may include treatment for parvo, heartworms, etc depending on each dog's situation at the time), Our adoptable dogs are up-to-date shots, are spayed/neutered, microchipped wormed and current on preventatives. 

Besides any behavioral rehabilitation provided in foster care, K9 Kokua additionally provides Post-Adoption Support for life of the dog! We also include a starter amount of the specific dog's food, a familiar toy or linen(s), one month of heartworm preventative and one month of flea/tick preventative. 

We understand the adjustment of adoption and we provide all of these things for the dog to help make the transition smooth.

We are not a rescue group. The dogs that we have been entrusted with to find permanent homes for came from serious backgrounds of varying circumstances. 

Adoption is NEVER a first-come, first-served basis with us. Our priority is finding a permanent match for the dog. 

To continue helping the next pup or dog in need, we ask for $150 for adult dogs, $200 for puppies(<1yr). 

100% of it goes back to helping the next dog in need. By adopting, you are not only saving that pup/dog's life, you are making it possible for the next needy dog to receive help.

I am looking for a lifetime commitment in a home that will embrace me as ohana. I have been through a lot in my past life as a houseless pup and almost died.

Emergency Vet Care gave me the chance to beat parvo and I also recovered from digesting toxins and dangerous fish bones!

After my vet hospital stay, I went into a K9 Kokua holding home to continue my quarantine isolation while my immune system improved. I received a clean bill of health and since then, I have learned many new things in foster care!

I'm about 2 yrs old now and am potty-trained, crate-trained and love to ride in the car for short jaunts! Even though I am very friendly, I am still misunderstood by many people simply because I am a large APBT mix.

I am a 70lb goof ball that loves to be a couch potato and I have perfected the art of stealing toys from my foster pack. No joke! I enjoy a daily routine and a fine snuggle with a human! 

I would really love to be adopted by a home where I will be the only dog that gets all of your one-on-one attention. I am not opposed to sharing a home with a nice, submissive dog that can handle my big girl play habits and not mind me being a diva.

I promise to always give you nothing but unconditional love and loyalty if you give me the same in return. I am a healthy girl who seeks to fill the spot on the couch next to you. Do you you possess the special spark that I seek?

Mouser has been through so much in his lifetime and this little 7lb Chihuahua mix is a tough little survivor! Here he is snuggling with foster bro, Hunter (on right). He LOVES to nap! 

Mouser was owned by a houseless man for many years in Central Oahu and then suddenly, Mouser was found wandering on H2 freeway, miles from his camp and he was sadly not missed by the man. 

Mouser was severely emaciated, weak, had extreme ulcers in both eyes that impaired his vision and had missing fur, not to mention being covered in fleas. 

After months of vet care appointments to heal from neglect, medication and ointments he healed enough to have major surgery done to relieve him of daily pain. Past trauma left him with a floating jaw and in the bottom left corner, you can see the piece that was removed. 

Even though he is now missing half of his bottom jaw, he eats his meals with no problems. 

In fact, he has a terrific appetite! 

Mouser is neutered, UTD on vaccinations, microchipped, heart worm negative and on monthly preventatives. His eyes and vision were saved and he will need a tube of ointment for one eye that can no longer produce tears. This is important to note-if he goes without his eye ointment everyday, he WILL develop eye problems so be sure that you can afford the $35 a month for his prescription. This sweet, playful and sleepy fella would love nothing more than a home where he is allowed to be the King of the couch, chair or bed. He rides well in a car and prefers an adult-only home. From his previous abuse, it left him with sensitive system that does best when he remains on a diet of simple chicken or canned (chicken) dog food. 

If your home is ready for a superb little fella with a large personality and mushy-bear heart, 

Handsome Roo
Location: Oahu

Roo recently turned 1 year old! He is a special needs pup that has 4 legs and only 3 paws. He was previously houseless and is accustomed to being around a human constantly. 
He weighs just 12lbs and he loves to run and play with dog toys! 
Roo would do best in an adult only home that can provide him with the constant companionship that he needs. This little fella is vocal and can have bouts of no confidence so coddlers need not apply. He is so sweet and also has a bossy side that needs to remain on a routine throughout adoption as change stresses him out. 
He loves riding in the car and laying in a soft, cushy dog bed and would love nothing more than to be the apple of your eye!

SPECIAL NOTE: Roo has an extremely serious and rapid allergic reaction to mango trees. If you have one in your yard, his adoption cannot be approved. 

If you think that your home matches his needs, please submit an application.
