Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Our purpose is to rescue underprivileged, unwanted dogs, and strengthen the human-animal bond in our community by educating the public about animal welfare. Our goal is to find loving, suitable fur-ever homes for Hawaii’s less fortunate dogs. We believe that through the help of the community we will be able to help those who are unable to help themselves. We strive to find fur-ever homes for our dogs, with the intent of keeping them from ever re-entering the shelter system. At FAF, we believe that through daily interaction with their foster family, FAF dogs receive the life skills they will need post-adoption. A perk of our mission is that we also get to connect with amazing people who are just like us! Animal lovers who want to contribute positively to the community! Cleaning, feeding, spending time with, and also making sure all of our pups are healthy is a big job! So we have wonderful volunteers that assist us with “bath day”, picking up and dropping off pups to medical appointments, picking up donations, planning events, and more! It’s a lot of fun, so if you’re interested, click on the "GET INVOLVED" tab for more info. We also have a foster-care program, where we place our healthy pups waiting to find their furever homes, with families who want to play, feed, and care for them until that time. Applications can be found on the "ADOPTIONS" & "BECOME A FOSTER" tabs.

Target demographics: underprivileged, unwanted dogs, and strengthen the human-animal bond in our community by educating the public about animal welfare

Geographic areas served: Oahu, HI

Programs: foster-care program and an education initiative.

I fostered JD. They were easy to work with and made sure he got the necessary shots and neutering. I helped find a potential family for JD and they were really easy to work with in the adoption process. I will be fostering again in the future.

I’ve seen Fur-Angel Foundation change so many animals’ AND people’s lives. They have a thorough process that ensures the animals are going to a great home/new family before completing the adoption process. 5 stars and more for this nonprofit.

I've worked with several nonprofits over the years, and not only did I end up adopting my dream dog from FAF (Fur-Angel Foundation) but I can personally attest to their high standards and transparency!

They are organized and genuinely care about their volunteers and the pups being housed with FAF. Highly recommended!!!

It’s been 3 years since I adopted Kenji and Jade from the fur Angel Foundation. They do such a great job preparing the dogs for adoption. They are groomed and up to date on their medical care.

Fur-Angel Foundation sets up new owners for success! 3 years ago I adopted Rusty (now Frankie) and was a little nervous about adding a new member to the family. But FAF took care of his crate training, potty training, and all basic medical attention. I felt so much better and could devote all my attention to Frankie right away. Their volunteers are kind and their foster homes are wonderful temporary homes for the pups. I’m thankful for their amazing care of Frankie before he came to my home!

Fur Angel Foundation is truly an asset to the Oahu community. They take dogs that are strays, surrendered, domestic abuse victims, rescued from animal hoards...whatever the need Fur Angel Foundation steps in to help dogs. As a smaller rescue without a brick and mortar facility, dogs are placed in vetted foster homes. The great part of being with a foster is the dogs are able to socialize with humans, other animals, and potty and crate training is reinforced. Everything is provided for the foster. All dogs are neutered, vaccinated, and treated for flea/tick and heartworm. I adopted two dogs rescued by Fur Angel Foundation and they are my pride and joy. Because this awesome organization is so well respected and I admire what they do for dogs, I became a coordinator for them four years ago. I am privileged to say I love being a Fur Angel Foundation supporter.❤️

Absolutely Amazing! I foster Lucy (Luci) and could not imagine her not being a part of our life so we adopted her. Fur Angels kept in touch and always offered support. When I move back to Hawai'i to retire they will be the first place I will volunteer for.

It's been 3 years since the Fur Angel Foundation brought me Kenji and Jade. They were groomed and up to date on all their medical care. They are part of my 8 dogs in my Kaneohe home. They have a big yard to play in and they sleep with me at night. My daughter and I rescue dogs. We have 13 between us. I love them!! Thank you Fur Angel ❤️

I have been with this organization from day 1 and can honestly say that we work with the best pups and people! The heart of the mission is always at the forefront of everything that they do and the well-being of each and every pup comes first. I am extremely proud and feel privileged to work with such an amazing group of individuals.
