The Oahu Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a non profit animal clinic and shelter. We are dedicated to rescuing Oahu's homeless and surrendered pets. We are committed to serving the needs of the people and animals in Honolulu County and across the island of Oahu. The Oahu SPCA was founded in April 2009, based on a no-kill philosophy, with the mission that “Every healthy treatable animal will find a forever home."
We rescue animals suffering from abuse, neglect and abandonment all over the island each day. We strive to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home every pet that walks through our doors. This includes spay/neutering, micro chipping and medical & behavioral rehabilitation in preparation for adoption.
We offer low cost spay/neuter programs as well as other reduced cost surgeries to the public. We provide low cost vaccine clinic through out Oahu, as well as the outer islands.
With the help of generous supporters and the assistance of over 2,000 volunteers, the Oahu SPCA was able to save more than 1,400 animals within the first year. We continue to dedicate ourselves in rescue, rehab, and adoptions as well as being here to support our Oahu ohana.
