Dear volunteers, supporters and friends: As always, we are participating in the annual "Give Aloha" fundraiser for local charities through the generous support of Foodland Supermarket, Ltd. During the month of September, customers are invited to make donations of up to a cumulative total of $249 (per person, per organization) at checkout to their favorite Hawaii non-profit organization registered in the Give Aloha program. Donations are accepted at any Foodland, Sack N Save or Foodland Farms checkout. Please use your Maika'i card and provide the participation number for the Hawaii Cat Foundation, which is: 77422 in 2021. Thank you with big purrrs!!!
Note from 6/19/2021: With kitten season in full swing, we are receiving many calls every day with inquiries to take in cats and kittens. Please note that we only are able to rescue through our established cat rescue network and a careful eye on our network's limited resources to not strain the system. In addition, our sanctuary operates at full capacity and therefore cannot accept new pawsome residents. Mahalo for your understanding.
The Hawaii Cat Foundation:
Founded in 1993, we are a nonprofit group who strive for the rescue, safety, and protection of at-risk cats and kittens. We mainly do this by 1) maintaining a cat sanctuary, and 2) our foster/adoption program.
Once a cat has been rescued through our established network, we place them into foster homes for assessment, nurturing, and a healthy regimen of quality food, socialization, and basic medical treatments. When healthy and ready for adoption, our precious felines are neutered/spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated. Only after all prerequisites are completed, the cats are then available for adoption to potential families who have completed an adoption application either in person at an adoption event, or by email. The Hawaii Cat Foundation continues to care for the cats in various foster homes until they are adopted to a safe and loving home with their forever families.
We post adoptable cats and kittens on our FaceBook page!
We also maintain a Petfinder Page!

Nalo - female tabby.
Unbelievably loving, Nalo will run up to you, climb on your shoulder and purr like a V8 while giving you LOTS of rubs and head-bunts!
Lotta is a young adult, jet-black female
Lotta is a ball of love and, despite a slight scarring on her left eye, sees perfectly well and loves to run and jump!
Lucy - 12 year old orange, female tabby
Lucy is extremely affectionate. She's around 12 years old and just loves to receive pats, scratches and rubs. In return she loves to give you head bunts, licks and groom your hair! Lucy gets along very well with other cats and would make a great addition to a loving home!
Kazu - black & white 12 year old male
Kazu is an unbelievably soft, sweet and friendly big old boy. He gets along well with other cats. He can eat any wet food, but if you give him dry food it must be "CD Medical Kibble" to prevent any urinary problems.
Mavro is an 8 year-old male love-bug!
Mavro gets along with other cats and is one of the softest and sweetest souls you will ever come across. For some reason, he has a neurological condition which means he cannot guage heights and jumping well, so he must be in a home where he can be down on the floor as much as possible.
Sweet Pea is a white calico ball of love!
Sweet Pea is blind. She is also one of the most affectionate cats you will ever come across. Just reach in and give her some pats and receive a world of head-bunts, rubs and purrs in return. She loves people and other cats! Of course, a blind cat does best in a quiet home where things don't get moved around so - sorry - a home without kids is best for Sweet Pea.
Sunset is an orange and white, adult male
Very affectionate and loving, Sunset would make a great addition to a loving, forever home!
Marlin is a very, very sweet adult, ginger male
For some neurological reason, Marlin holds his head on the side most of the time, but he absolutely loves back rubs, head pats and chin scratches! Classic ginger tabby love-bug!
Clyde is an adult ginger and white tabby
This handsome chap is about two years old. He is a little shy at first, but warms up when you give him gentle, loving pats. He is probably best in a quiet home without children or dogs.
Pacer is an adult, male tabby
Pacer's penetrating gaze belies a heart of gold. He LOVES people and would do best as an only cat in a loving forever-home.
Patrice is a gorgeous tortoiseshell
About 10 years old, Patrice LOVES to be picked up, cuddled and given lots of scritches, pets and rubs. In return, she purrs her heart out! A little bit overweight and with a tiny bit of arthritis, Patrice walks a little bit slower than normal, but it is SO worth it when she gets to you and gives you love! She gets along very well with other cats, too!
Ranger is a ginger, adult male.
Very loving, Ranger is a little bit on the tubby side and could do with some portion control to lose a pound or two. He is very appreciative on neck scratches and patting of any kind. A very mellow marshmellow!
Mushu is an adult, ginger male.
And at around 11 years old, what a ball of pure love this guy is! This guy is a head-bunter, nose-kisser, leg-rubber and V8 purrer extraordinaire! He gets on very well with other cats and would make an amazingly loving addition to a great Forever Home :)
Pepe is a 12 year old adult, male tabby.
And he just LOVES to be scratched around his head, neck, chin, shoulders, back...well, pretty much everywhere! Wow - what an addition to a great home this chap would make. As long as you are prepared to be showered in love by him! :)
