We provide any and all necessary treatment to bring the dog up to health prior to adoption. This may include treatment for parvo, heartworms, etc. While on foster care, each puppy or dog receives one-on-one care & rehabilitation according to their individual needs.

All adoptable puppies + dogs are up-to-date on shots, blood tests and fecal testing, Further, they are spayed/neutered, microchipped, wormed and current on preventatives. 

K9 Kokua additionally provides Post-Adoption Support for life of the dog! 

Included in adoption is;  a starter amount of the specific dog's food, a familiar toy or linen, one month of heartworm preventative and one month of flea/tick preventative. We understand the adjustment of adoption so we provide these additional items for the dog to help make the transition smooth for the entire ohana.

We are not a rescue-focused group and cannot readily accept in stray dogs or dogs needing to be rehomed.

Our main mission is to provide direct outreach to houseless dogs and those affected by domestic violence. The dogs in our foster care were either houseless or affected by cruelty in some way. 

Nonetheless, each has a background of unique circumstance and most dogs have spent a long time healing in a foster home. 

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 

$200 for adult dogs, $300 for puppies(<1yr). 

100% of it goes back to helping the next dog with vet care while they are in foster care homes.

By adopting, you are not only saving that pup/dog's life, you are making it possible for the next puppy or dog to receive help!

TERRIER MIX, 4 years old
Location: Oahu 

Brie was a long time stray who made her way to a stretch of a houseless beach encampment where she rummaged for food or relied on the kindness of surrounding humans. 

Foster care has allowed Brie to learn many new things about life, including what a joy it is to run and play! 

Brie needs a calmer human to understand and remember her background. 

Her foster states that Brie would not do well in an apartment setting or with cats or children.

This pretty girl is considered to be a medium sized dog weighing in at only 30lbs and would be perfect for a retired person or couple who spends lots of time at home. 

If you think you can offer Brie a lifetime of happiness, safety, quality time spent and love, please submit an adoption application. 

In her past, so many people were mean to her. 


Could that be you?
