We are fundraising for a second Mission Mainland flight!

In August of 2021, we successfully rehomed 201 animals to Seattle during the first-ever all KHS-run mass transfer flight: Mission Mainland. These animals met their new adopters, no-kill rescues and fosters at the tarmac, and it allowed the animals remaining at the shelter to have the space and resources they deserved. (We had 470 animals at the time!)

Here’s how you can help!

  1. Purchase a Mission Mainland shirt! For every four shirts sold, we can secure one animal. There’s lots of styles, colors and sizes to choose from. View dark logo options here and view white logo options here.
  2. Purchase a travel crate or other supplies from our Amazon Wishlist here.
  3. Donate to our transfer program by making a donation here and write in the memo “transfer program.”


The island of Kaua`i has a very limited number of residential homes that accept pets, that means that we often have to look to our no-kill rescue partners on the mainland to help our animals have positive outcomes.

KHS is a no-kill shelter which means we do not euthanize animals due to lack of space. It does mean that we need to get animals out of the shelter and to our rescue partners as often as we can so we don’t overfill the shelter.



It costs between $250-700 to transfer an animal to the mainland, depending on how big the animal is and where it’s going.



Due to airline restrictions, we can only transfer a few animals at once.

In 2021, KHS facilitated it’s first ever mass transfer of 201 animals to the Seattle area. We called it Mission Mainland. These animals either went straight to their adopters on the tarmac, or went straight to our rescue partners.

We’d like to fundraise for another Mission Mainland flight this spring.
