Microchip Identification: $20.00

This form of identification is implanted just under the skin for permanent identification of your pet. This is not a GPS tracker and does not function with location monitoring. Your information as the registered owner will be attached to the microchip so that if your pet is found without you, we may be able to reunite you. Any pet over 4 weeks old can be microchipped and current County of Kaua`i legislation requires all pets over 3 months of age to have a microchip.


KHS is proud to announce the soft-launch of a Community Care Center. Every Tuesday from 12:30 – 5 p.m., we will accept walk-ins to the care center located to the left of the front lobby. Just follow the driveway to the wooden fence and you’ve found it!

Our hope is that by offering a low-cost walk-in pet care center, we will help more families stay together, and prevent animals coming into the shelter.

Costs of services vary depending on the service. This center will operate on a sliding scale.

We offer end of life services including owner-requested euthanasia as well as single and group cremations. Please phone us (808-632-0610) or email to learn more.
