Meet Akahele

This beautiful and delightful girl is Akahele.  Whether you have a cat at home who wants a friend or you are looking for an only cat, consider meeting this charming lady.  She does not have to go to a home with other cats, but if you have cats and are looking for a friend, Akahele is a very good kitty friend.  

Akahele is around 1.5 years old.  Her name means “cautious” in Hawaiian and this describes her in one word better than any other word could.   She prefers to quietly observe activity at first, but once she deems you acceptable, she comes over and flops on her back so she can have her belly rubbed - which she LOVES.  Her fur is incredibly soft - it’s worth the wait for her to trust you!  She is not skittish or fearful of people – she is simply cautious.  And while it may take a little time for her to feel comfortable, she will not be the cat you need to watch out for when opening the doors!  

Akahele is very playful as well.  She enjoys playing with kitty toys like the round track with the ball that goes around and around.  She also enjoys the feather wand on the stick and will chase that toy around.  She also enjoys some "me" time - her favorite self-care is looking out the window and watching the birds or squirrels and all their activity. 

Akahele is a sit-on-the-couch-and-binge-watch-Netflix-with-a-glass-of-wine kind of cat.  We recommend that Akahele go to a quieter home. She would be perfectly content to hang out with you and be spoiled the rest of her life, in a home that will respect her need to participate on her own terms.   

Akahele is microchipped, spayed and up to date on her vaccines.  With your adoption you will receive a certificate for a free exam with one of our veterinary partners. Akahele will let us trim her nails while she is rolling around on the floor.  Akahele may not be declawed. 

You can check out where her foster mom has documented her time in foster care.  

Akahele is a 1.5 year old female (as of 10/2020) who is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, spayed, and litter box trained.

Akahele's adoption fee is $95.  If you are interested in meeting Akahele, please fill out our Online Application today!  

Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will be able to contact you to arrange a meeting.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV

  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
