The Hawaii Island Humane Society funds its operations mostly through private donations and fundraising activities. We are reliant on our community to help us with our mission. If you would like to contribute, we have a few different ways to support us. We gratefully accept goods and in-kind gifts to help animals at the shelter. Your donations benefit numerous departments year-round, from providing basic care and comfort to equipping our medical staff and our cat and dog enrichment programs, every item counts.
We’re always looking for those items that may be cluttering up your garage and junk drawers. Instead of tossing your old blankets and towels, consider donating them to the animals instead. We accept drop-off donations during business hours. Click here to see what items we currently need.
You can also check out our Amazon Wish List and have items shipped directly to us.
You can always drop off your donated supplies to any of our three shelters, or send gifts to the following address:
Hawaii Island Humane Society
78-6767 Mamalahoa Hwy.
Holualoa, HI 96725

Help make our cats and dogs more comfortable by donating a cat or dog bed. Kuranda beds are designed to keep cats and dogs comfortable, but they’re also sturdy and easy to clean. The cat beds are raised, providing a cozy perch and increasing floor space, giving cats additional space to roam. Order here and have them shipped directly to us.
The Hawai‘i Deposit Beverage Container Program (HI-5) is a State of Hawai‘i funded program that places a 5¢ redeemable deposit on each qualified beverage container. Why throw away your recyclables when you can donate it to the animals? Just look for the HI 5¢ label on your glass, plastic and metal containers, and take them to any shelter.
