A4A Hawaii is committed to working with all our rescue partners throughout Hawaii Island.

Rainbow Friends

A4A Hawaii is focusing on the "Emptying the Sanctuary" campaign at Rainbow Friends Animal Sanctuary.We bring Rainbow dogs to our adoption events, we give them basic training, and a select group of dogs are part of our fly-outs to the continental US and Canada where they have more opportunity to find furever homes.  Several dogs have participated in the University of Hawaii at Hilo's Pet Therapy Program which was launched in Spring 2023 and was a huge success with students and staff.   A4A sponsors all of the Rainbow dogs we take under our 'paw" so any donations help tremendously in all that we do to make them more adoptable.  

A4A Hawaii is a proud County of Hawaii Animal Control Transfer Partner.

If you have any interest in the dogs below, please reach out to County of Hawaii Animal Control at (808) 895-8765‬.
