Animal Control

If you require assistance with a found stray animal, please contact your local shelter. Animal cruelty investigations do not include barking dogs, noise compaints, or loose animals. If you have a concern with a loud animal, call your local police agency.  If you see a loose or an injured animal on the side of the road, call your local animal control.

Euthanasia Services

Losing your beloved companion is a painful experience, but we are here to help you through with compassionate care and support.



Ever wonder what happens to young animals that come in without a mother? We have foster families that help nurture them until they are ready for adoption.

Found a Lost Animal?

Losing a pet is a frightening and emotional time for both the owner and the lost pet. The Hawaii Island Humane Society helps both owners and those who have found a lost animal to reunite with their family. Searching for a lost pet with our online listing, calling our shelter or stopping in is the best way to locate a lost pet.
