Open & UNRESOLVED Cruelty Cases

K9 Kokua receives many unique calls from the public and private sector, including LEO (law enforcement officers), regarding cruelty or neglectful situations involving dogs. 
**See our social media pages for current cases. 

K9 Kokua volunteers have been the first responders to the cases listed here. We immediately took the dogs into our veterinarian's office and provided for all of their vet care.

As with all cruelty cases, we report to and cooperate with all local and mainland authorities in an effort to find the person(s) responsible for the cruel act(s).

*If you have any information regarding any of the cases, please call the numbers listed on the individual REWARD posters. All tips will remain anonymous.

Some of the more extreme cases where K9 Kokua was contacted by other animal groups, Honolulu Police Department personnel and/or Good Samaritans reporting horrific things include; 

Family dog shot while on church grounds in Waianae,

6 newborn puppies found in a dumpster in Waianae, 

Family dog found shot (RIP Champ), 

Dog was discovered left for dead in a carrier on the side of the road in Waialua with full food and water bowls, 

A decapitated dog in Kunia where the suspects left the dog’s head and 4 paws at the scene yet removed the body,

a dog found hanging from a pole, 

a dog found with it's throat sliced (he survived!),

a report of 2 6-month old sibling puppies that were discovered on Halloween, brutally beaten to death, stuffed into trash bags (with latex gloves) and dumped next to a high school. 

In each case, K9 Kokua volunteers responded to the scene immediately. Our Emergency Response Crews are familiar with handling chain of evidence and adhering to proper protocol. We work with all law enforcement agencies for the common good of catching the abuser. 


HPD calls K9 Kokua for assistance; dog shot in Maili.

There is a total of $4000 reward still active for information leading to the arrest of person that shot Champ.

RIP and love, Hope...
