We are a no-kill animal sanctuary, founded in 2001 by Mary Rose Krijgsman whose goal is to help alleviate the animal abandonment and overpopulation issues facing our island. We take in any dogs and cats who need new homes and adopt them to loving families. If the animals are not adopted, they have a permanant home at our sanctuary. We also help people find alternate solutions to surrendering their animals, such as providing food, alternate housing suggestions, and foster care. We frequently help people who cannot afford veterinary care for their pets and help with spay/neuter costs.
Come Meet our Pets:
We are located in Kurtistown, HI. Directions to the shelter are: From Highway 11, go up Huina Rd. to Momona Rd, turn right onto Momona. Follow Momona to the end, where it ends in a "T". Turn left at the "T". We are the 3rd house on the right. Visiting hours are daily from 10am to 3pm. We have over 200 cats housed in large catteries, and 80 dogs throughout the property in large pens. Please wear comfortable shoes as our terraine is not paved.
Our Adoption Process:
$30 minimum adoption fee for cats; $60 minimum adoption fee for dogs. If animal does not work out, we ask that they be returned to us.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
