Kauai Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
was formed in early 2017.


We had barely just received our 501c3 status when we got an urgent call to help with a terrible animal hoarding case in Kapa’a. Their “person” had passed away, leaving 50+ cats living in individual dog crates stacked floor to ceiling in a muggy garage. So while we were really ready only “on-paper”, we had no choice but to dive into action.

Just as we were catching our breath from that Herculean effort, WHAMMO: an epic flood engulfed the North Shore of Kauai in April 2018. A series of 15 landslides fell across the highway completely cutting off the areas of Hāʻena and Wainiha from civilization. The Kauai SPCA organized and delivered food & medical supplies for the animals (which included horses, dogs, cats, goats, pigs, pet birds) … by boat; the only way in or out. We also took on Bubby— a beautiful, loving mixed breed dog abandoned by his owners when it started flooding.
