Hi, I've been involved with the Oahu SPCA for well over year now. I found the staff to be very concerned for the welfare of the animals within within their care. I was speaking with one of the staff, she was talking to me about a dog named Malu who passed away due to the neglect and abuse suffered before the Oahu SPCA discovered and intervened. She started crying when she told me Malu's story and I could tell that she had great empathy towards all the animals she tries to help. On many occasions I have personally spoken with all the staff and some of the volunteers and found them to all be competent, courteous and CAPABLE to help the MANY animals they rescue.

The Oahu SPCA is a wonderful and valuable organization in Hawaii and I'm glad to leave my opinion about them to anyone interested.

The Oahu SPCA is a wonderful non profit - they do so much work and help so many animals.
They give a voice to the voiceless, and fight to ensure that such beautiful loving animals find new, safe loving homes.
Their new website is so easy to navigate through, and is filled with lovely images, beautiful galleries of animals that need homes and they even have free activity pages for children! They are also very social on Facebook and Instagram which is lovely to see, they really strive to make sure that all the animals in their care are noticed and given the exposure they need to find their new FURever home.
Well done Oahu SPCA - keep up the good work!! :)

The Oahu SPCA has done a lot of valuable work to rescue and find homes for abandoned and abused dogs and cats in Hawaii. They operate on a shoestring, relying on a few core volunteers. They claim to rehabilitate all the animals they take in, but that's not really true. They do basic nutritional and some medical rehabilitation, but can only deal with relatively easy behavior rehabilitation. There is no trained staff or plan or program to deal with aggressive dogs or dogs with serious psychological issues.

The organization offers no transparency to its governance or financial information. It holds closed board meetings. It does not release any minutes. It has a web site, but it is out of date and does not show current board members. It does not publish any financial data such as financial statements or annual reports. Form 990s are available for 2009 and 2010, but no later years. If frequently runs advertisements for special project donations, but does not provide any feedback on how the collected funds were actually used. Volunteers who offer constructive suggestions for improvement are dismissed.
