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?

Roody recently graduated Basic Obedience Training and took 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! 

Roody 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 grumpiness 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: Roody 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!

Charming is an elderdog that is approx. 12yrs old. A good sammie discovered Charming sitting alone and wandering around a feral cat colony. After watching passersby ignore the little old dog for an hour, she approached and scooped Charming up. The good sammie took her to the vet and we quickly went to work to find out why this sweet dog was found without her owner. 

We learned that her owner no longer wanted her and albeit sad, we were not going to fail this little old gal. Charming remained at the vet receiving care until she could go into foster care. 

Charming's foster says that this smart cutie has not has a single accident in the house and that she caught on to a routine very quickly! 

This little lady is looking for someone to spend a lot of time with. She has been used to spending every waking moment with a human (before she was left by the only owner she new). She doesn't require a lot of exercise but she enjoys little jaunts around the block to sniff and mark wonderful things. She is a happy spirit that is UTD on her boosters, exam and wormer. She is currently waiting for dental surgery to extract several teeth so that she can be the healthiest and happiest gal ever! 

If you -- are retired or stay-at-home to work, do not have small children in your home and have either no other animals or one nice dog, Charming would enjoy meeting you so submit an application through the link.
