The only group in Hawai'i specialized in helping the dogs of the houseless population and those affected by domestic violence.

Our volunteers provide direct outreach to dogs on multiple islands and respond to Urgent calls from police and private sector personnel regarding unique situations of need. 


The hidden houseless.

Many of the camps that we assist are not seen by the public eye. Often, We hike in to many of the camps that are in old sugar cane fields, valleys or on the coasts of Oahu and Maui. 

Carrying a very sick dog out from a camp to our volunteers' vehicle is not only dangerous, it takes valuable minutes that the dog has to get to our vet. Gear-heads wanted!

Helping dogs long-term.

K9 Kokua is a 501c3 non-profit, all-volunteer ran group that does not employ a single person so that each effort put forth truly impacts the dogs.

Support from the community is vital to the most destitute dogs in Hawaii. 

To learn how YOU can help a dog today, 

Many houseless dogs live on beaches, on sidewalks, in vehicles and even under bridges with their humans.

In cold, wet valleys to the direct sun of a coastline, life is not easy for the dogs. Your Aloha provides all levels of attention and care, including bringing joy to a houseless dog's life. 

Serving the camps since 2003, we understand that their dog is often the only ohana (family) that the houseless have left in this world. 

We provide all levels of resources for the dogs including spay/neuter, microchipping, 24hr Emergency care, wellness checks and more. We help the dogs to remain healthy and safe while empowering their humans with everything from proper education regarding daily dog care to current C&C and State of Hawaii dog laws.

Join us to make a broader impact that sends out more ripples of solution into the community. Our work for dogs not only saves lives but it empowers families to get back on their feet with their ohana dog.
