Adopt A Pet! Meet Pakele – the Cuddler

Welcome to our new weekly feature! We’ve partnered with local rescue organization KARES (Kohala Animal Relocation and Education Service) to give Big Island Pulse readers who are looking to adopt a pet a look at some of the wonderful animals that they have available for adoption. This week we are getting to know Pakele, a beautiful male dog. He’s one of many adoptable pets available, but he tops their list for needing a home.



Pakele is a sweet and loving boy available for adoption with KARES.

He is 5 years old and weighs 70 pounds. He is a mixed breed dog, possibly Doberman and Catahoula.

Pakele is currently being fostered with other dogs, cats, and a baby, and he is easygoing with all of them.

He’s a mellow dude, he loves to snuggle on the couch and hang out with his foster family, and if you want to adopt a pet, he makes a great choice.

Pakele would love to be part of a family, and he’s just waiting for the right one to come his way.
