Review for Kohala Animal Relocation And Education Service, Kamuela, HI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Kohala Animal Relocation and Education Service or KARES is dedicated to the rescue of abandoned, abused and stray animals (dogs and cats), their rehabilitation and finding foster or adoption homes for them. KARES is not an animal sanctuary. We advocate spay and neuter as the humane way to control the ever expanding population of dogs and cats on Hawaii Island.

In 2012 KARES found forever homes for 270 dogs. We were responsible for the spay/neuter of 670 dogs primarily at no cost to pet owners who are experiencing economic hardship. KARES is an all volunteer organization and has NO paid staff. We are funded by donations and grants from corporate. community and private foundations.

Our web site: maintains photos of animals available for adoption.

Review for Rainbow Friends Animal Sanctuary, Kurtistown, HI, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Rainbow Friends Animal Sanctuary (RFAS) has been in operation as a non-profit since 1999 advocating "no kill" and providing sanctuary to dogs and cats that represent the rescued abused and abandoned. The sanctuary has no paid staff. All donated or grant funds support their programs. RFAS has an active affordable or no cost spay/neuter program for both cats (feral and domestic) and dogs, a foster network and adoption program and maintains a Pet Food Bank for pets of low income families that might surrender their animals without assistance.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
