Take a shelter dog out in Hawaii


The dog field trip program run by the  Kauai Humane Society in Hawaii is a unique program that allows visitors to take one of the Humane Society dogs out for the day. Dog lovers can explore the beautiful island with the company of a new canine friend. At the same time, the dogs are able to get out of the shelter, play, and interact.

The shelter will provide everything your dog will need for the day, such as a leash and poop bags, as well as a bright doggy vest with the words “adopt me” on it.  They will also provide some great suggestions on dog friendly- places and activities to fill up your day.

About four times a month, the field trips result in the dog finding a new home, which the humane society supports throughout the entire process, including moving the dog out of state.

The Kauai Humane Society is located at 3-825 Kaumualii Hwy, Lihue.  It is about a 15-minute drive from the airport.

What you should consider

– You must be 18 years or older to participate in the program.

– You must provide a credit card for a deposit, just in case the dog isn’t returned.

– You must have an enclosed vehicle for the dog to ride in (no convertibles or pick-up trucks).

– The dog must remain on leash at all times.
