Hawaii is paradise, but not to our homeless animal friends. Kohala Animal Relocation and Education Service, KARES, is a Non-profit organization dedicated to providing shelter, foster care and adoption for Kohala's homeless pets. The over population of our island's dogs and cats leads to more than 15,000 sad and needless deaths from euthanization every year. Our vision is to develop a program of awareness, education and networking in the Kohala communities throughout the Big Island of Hawaii. Your contributions can help make Hawaii a paradise for these loving pets needing homes.
Our mission is to provide temporary shelter, foster care and adoption to Kohala area dogs and cats and to be a society for the prevention of animal cruelty In North Kohala, Hawaii. Our focus will be on educating the island community regarding animal stewardship, population control and prevention of animal cruelty. We will work with a team of veterinarians to offer low cost spay/neuter clinics, establish trap/neuter/return (TNR) programs and do any other thing we deem may improve the treatment of animals, including their relationships with humans.
