We are happy to answer all your questions.



After we rescue animals, the road to rehabilitation is a journey filled with lots of love and hard work. Each animal has different medical needs and recovery time. Yet they all need the same thing, our commitment to do all we can to save them.

This past Valentines Day, we rescued Valentine, a two year old lab mix who was so emaciated, she was unable to walk. Even more heart breaking, her litter of puppies were eaten by local wildlife. Valentine is currently putting on some healthy weight in a foster home and will be adoptable very soon.

“Merry Christmas from the Alvina Family. It’s been a year since we’ve had the blessing of adding Po’okela to our family. He’s growing to be an amazing dog. He’s quite protective of the kids and a very good guard dog. He’s funny and we often say weird, *Lol* because he’s just too smart for his own good. We could not picture our lives without him.”


“I wanted to thank you guys for giving us two beautiful doggies, after experiencing the loss of our two dogs last year. The bond Sora and Yuna have are remarkable, and they love us just as much as we love them. I wanted to let you know they made it safely with us for our move off island. They are happy and healthy! This is from our last shoot on the island!

Thank you again for all you do, and for finding all these dogs amazing and loving homes ❤ You made our family whole again!”
