Facts about Hoku

  • Breed: Hound (Unknown Type)
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
This hound mix Hoku (formerly Jack) is in need of a foster or new home. He was adopted from the Humboldt County Animal Shelter last February but his family's circumstances changed and they are not able to give him the attention and training that would allow him to be the best that he can be. He is good with other dogs and children, but too excited about cats. He needs a confident handler who will get him out in the world a bit and help him to understand his boundaries. He came on our Saturday morning pack walk and was very good around all the people and new dogs. We would love to get him into a foster or adoptive home so that we could have a space for one of the other dogs that really needs to leave the shelter to be saved! Does anyone have room in their home and heart for this good boy? Please contact us if you would be interested in meeting Hoku for adoption or fostering.

About Redwood Pals Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Redwood Pals Rescue was formed to keep the euthanasia rate low at our local county shelter which is a kill facility. We are an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to support rescue and adoption efforts of animals that are at risk in the Humboldt County Animal Shelter.

Some of the things we do:
* rescue animals in danger of being euthanized at the Humboldt County Animal Shelter

* place rescued animals into permanent adoptive homes;

* facilitate transportation of rescue animals to out-of-area rescue organizations, fosterers, and adoptive homes;

* train/rehabilitate rescue animals to facilitate their placement into permanent adoptive homes;

* to provide temporary foster of shelter animals with medical needs to facilitate their placement into permanent adoptive homes;

* provide educational outreach to promote the adoption of shelter and rescue animals as pets;

* improve the quality of life for animals at the Humboldt County Animal Shelter;

* encourage and facilitate proper veterinary care including vaccinations, spaying and neutering;

We always need: Donations! which can be sent to our P.O. Box or through Razoo. Fosters! We do not have a shelter of our own but instead rely on kennel space for our rescue dogs at the shelter (when it isn't full) or with our network of foster homes. We sometimes have to emergency board dogs to save their lives. We would rather have them in a foster home. Volunteers! if you are interested in volunteering let us know. We are a small group and could always use more help.

Call or email if you would like to meet any of our rescue animals and we can make arrangements.

Our Adoption Process...

We have an adoption application and require an home visit and references. Our adoption fee for dogs is $175 which covers spay/neuter, vaccinations, and other medical treatment. This fee can be negotiated depending on circumstances.
