We will accept Service Animals protected by the ADA with proper documentation.

“In Hawaii, a service animal is a dog that is individually trained to do work or tasks to benefit someone with a disability, including a intellectual, mental, sensory, or physical disability.

Under the ADA, the definition is roughly the same with a few twists. The tasks or work the service animal does must be directly related to the person’s disability. And in some cases, a miniature horse may also qualify as a service animal…

Neither the ADA nor Hawaii law covers what some people call “emotional support animals”: animals that provide a sense of safety, companionship, and comfort to those with psychiatric or emotional conditions. Although these animals often have therapeutic benefits, they are not individually trained to perform specific tasks for their handlers.”

Hawaii Laws on Service Dogs and Emotional Support Animals

Finally, Hawaii has strict quarantine laws which make coming here with pets a bit more challenging than traveling around the mainland.
