Open Cruelty Cases

K9 Kokua receives many unique calls regarding cruel or abusive situations AND THESE ARE ONLY A FEW OF THOSE.
**See our Facebook page for current situations. 

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.

There are other cases where K9 Kokua was contacted by other animal groups, Honolulu Police Department personnel and/or Good Samaritans reporting horrific things; 

6 newborn puppies found in a dumpster in Waianae, 

a dog that was found shot (RIP Champ, dog in Maili. case status unknown), 

a dog that was discovered left for dead in a carrier on the side of the road in Waialua, 

a call from a family reporting that someone decapitated their dog in Kunia and left the head and 4 paws at the scene yet removed the body (open HPD investigation) 

a dog found hanging from a pole 

a dog found with it's throat sliced and 

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. Again, these are just a few of the horrific cruelty cases that we have responded to. 

In each of these, K9 Kokua volunteers responded to the scene immediately. They are experienced with the chain of evidence and proper protocol regarding cruelty cases/situations and fully cooperate with any law enforcement agency for the common good of catching the abuser.

Together, we can encourage others to speak up against violence against dogs!

*see the page "medical issues/updates" for more info and pics of Titan Conan, the puppy that was stabbed, Since his abuse, he made a full recovery and now lives a very happy and safe life with his adoptive ohana!


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...

Titan Conan

RIP and love, Moxy...
