Hui Ilio Hawaii

Hui 'Ilio Hawai'i (the Hawaii Dog Group) was founded to promote safe and friendly places for dogs and their people to play, and to promote responsible dog ownership. Our initial reason for organizing was to build the Hawaii Kai Dog Park.  After the dog park was opened in 2008, we continued to support it until 2016, as "adopt-a-park" partners.  We recruited and trained volunteer park rangers, and sponsored maintenance, weeding, and landscaping projects. Our ongoing goals are to help other dog groups get approval for parks in their respective districts, enhance the opportunities for dogs to get proper exercise and socialization, and to promote responsible dog ownership.

Aloha Friends of Hui Ilio Hawaii:  This is old news, but people still ask.....  We are no longer the "Adopt-a-Park" partner at the Hawaii Kai Dog Park.  We terminated our Adopt-a-Park agreement with the City as of December 31, 2015.  However, our organization is still alive and well, promoting public dog parks and doing our best to assist other community groups who are trying to establish dog parks in their respective communities.  VIsit our "Dog-friendly Parks" page to read about groups that are currently active and in need of your support.


Although we are not currently the "park partner" at Hawaii Kai Dog Park  we have kept this page on our website to provide general information about the park.   On this page, you'll also find the the City's dog park rules and regulations (which apply to all public dog parks), dog park tips and etiquette, and other useful information.


A new nonprofit, HKDP Hui, has been in the process of adopting the Hawaii Kai Dog Park since 2016 (paperwork pending).  For current park information, the group can be reached at info@hkdphui.org.

We have stopped publishing our newsletter but occasionally may send email updates and announcements to our mailing list regarding other dog park efforts.  If you are interested in the island-wide efforts to establish more dog parks, please send your name, contact info and your dogs' names to info@hui-ilio.org.
