Adopt a Furry Souvenir!

Off-Island Adoptions

One of the fun services we offer is our off-island adoptions program. That’s right! You can adopt a Kaua`i pet from wherever you live and we’ll ship to you!

Did you fall in love with a dog or cat during your visit to Kaua`i?

That’s okay! We can help you bring home the best souvenir possible!

Our off-island adoptions program is readily available if you are interested in adopting from our shelter! We will coordinate everything you’ll need to get them to their fur-ever homes off-island. If you have any questions or would like to inquire regarding off-island adoptions, please email

We're Here to Help!

If you would like to make your own travel arrangements for your pet, our off-island adoptions specialists are happy to guide you through the process.

Before Leaving for the Mainland, All Animals Need to Visit a Vet for:

A health certificate ($50)
A rabies vaccine ($30) if over 3 months of age

They also need a flight reservation, crate and travel pack. You can make those arrangements yourself or KHS can help you.
