If you're catless and dogless in urban MA and you need a little animal and mountain greenery time like me, being able to look at JFP daily postings of happy + is much appreciated. Gracias.

Perfect place for our boy. We left our pupper here while camping in the National Park. We were able to pick him on certain days and enjoy the days with him returning him at night. He was clean and happy and excited to get back to play with his friends. Jon and Charlie are great to work with. Wonderful experience. More...

I found my Bruce (Brus) at Aloha Ilio Rescue they are amazing. I just signed up for Amazon Smile with them as the recipient. If you use Amazon as much as I do, this might be a totally painless way to help the out in what they do. More...

The owners are absolutely amazing! They are definitely dog people and my pup had a wonderful time! I am from NC, but will definitely use them again when I am in the area. We joke that I would take her all the way to TN to go there instead of using someone near NC More...

We highly recommend Just Fer Paws! Our dogs came back to us happy and clean! We have used other places to board our dogs and when we picked them up we could tell that they weren’t their happy selves. We didn’t worry about them at all while we were on vacation! We will use them again when we come back! :) Thank you! More...

I totally recommend you to adopt from Aloha Ilio Rescue, or if you are having any kind of problems, with keeping your dog, please check them out first before taking your pet to the humane society. They have rescued 2 of our dogs and immediately, found great homes for them. Donna was remarkable, she came by in no time to access them and I was able to text with her every step of the way as to what their outcome became.My heart is content knowing they have found a forever safe home...

I greatly appreciate how they make sure that pets get good homes, and that they go the extra mile to check out an adopter’s home and living situation enforce placing the pet.

Our almost 2 year old German shepherd/malanois mix LOVED it all 3 days at Doggie Daycare! Facility and area is Immaculent! As soon as we rounded the curve the 2nd morning she started going crazy to get out and play! Each day picking her up she was smiling and tail just a wagging! Each night she literally slept like a Baby from all her running and playing. I would recommend them 100 times over to care for your pet while you sight see, etc. Money well spent! Thanks Again for taking care of our "Fur" child! More...

I recently left my dogs with Just Fer Paws, while on vacation. One of my dogs, Hunter, had a medical emergency while there, and Charlie & Jon took him to my vet to get checked out. They took care of it all, even called to inform me, and reassured me that he was doing fine, no need to rush back. They gave Hunter extra care, and made sure he was well-loved while I was away. Thank you for going the extra mile to give me, and my dogs, a great vacation. They will definitely be back next time! More...

As someone who lost their dog . Aloha Ilio Rescue gave me the opportunity to foster dogs with them until I was ready to adopt. The unique thing about Aloha Ilio Rescue is that they have this ability to match the perfect dog with the right person. They are a kind, compassionate, strong and faithful to the rescue process group of people. I am proud to know them❤️ More...

Instead of dragging the Humane Society down for being over whelmed with the discarded animals of a uncaring community they help them do better. They are changing the face of animal welfare in East Hawaii. I support them both on the tough road they walk. Keep up the great work, you're making a difference. More...

We came to Gatlinburg for vacation last week March 16th thru 23rd. Our dog Loki is a rescue and had never been boarded in the 2 years we have had him.

Aloha Ilio is a five star organization because of the quality of care the dogs fostered are given, but also because of their professionalism. We adopted a puppy that was cared for by Donna, and I think the love our puppy shows us is because of how Donna raised her. I also appreciate that the vetting process to get our puppy was thorough. Lastly, with the adoption fees including the spaying, first shots, micro-chipping, and foster care love, I feel blessed to have been able to adopt through Aloha Ilio. More...

I almost don't want to leave such a glowing review so there is always room to take my boxer to this place but I would be doing them a great disservice. Just Fer Paws is an excellent place to take your pet when you are on vacation (or not) as they treat the animals like the members of the family that they are. The level of care these two gentlemen show is tremendous and I can't imagine taking my pet to another facility. Well done! More...

Wanted to bring our dog with us for a weekend trip to Gatlinburg. Just Fer Paws was perfect! Close to the heart of town and will allow you to come visit/get your dog during the day. They allow the dogs to hang out and play together and there is a great outdoor, fenced area to run outside. Jon and Charlie were very friendly and helpful. Can definately tell they love and take pride in what they do. Thanks! More...

We adopted our Axle Grease from Aloha Ilio Rescue a couple of months ago after our dog Diesel passed away. They were very helpful and even though we live on Maui the adoption process went smoothly and within a couple days he arrived in his new home with us. We love him very much and he is a wonderful addition to our family. We would highly recommend Aloha Ilio Rescue for any adoption. More...

I can’t say enough good things about John, Charlie, and Just Fer Paws. We’re locals with a mini doxie who doesn’t like people. She absolutely LOVES coming here. We use it for both daycare and boarding, and our pup comes home happy and clean. The facility is immaculate and the care impeccable. I just can’t recommend this place enough. More...

I dropped my almost 2 year old German Shepherd off for the day while I went hiking. Just Fer Paws took great care of him! He burned off a lot of energy playing in their pool. After my 10 mile hike, I was so happy to see that my boy was just as exhausted from his stay during the day as I was from my hike! Thanks for taking such great care of him! More...

Amazing staff! We were coming from out of town, and they made it very easy to drop our dog off for day care. When we picked him up he didn't want to leave as he was having too much fun.

I would give this place 10 stars if it were possible. I ABSOLUTELY recommend this place to everyone! We planned a last minute trip to Gatlinburg before school start back, but did not want to leave our 14 week old Doodle at home with the sitter. I contacted the owners a day before we drove up, and they told me they would gladly take her for doggie daycare! I am always skeptical about places I have never seen or been, so I admit, I was nervous about leaving Sadie Mae. However, when you meet the owners, you IMMEDIATELY know that they have an unconditional love for dogs and that they absolutely love their job! The establishment is clean, cozy and doggie friendly and extremely affordable. Throughout the day, they posted a few pictures on Facebook of my Sadie girl for me to see. I am so very thankful for their services and for them taking such wonderful care of our girl. We will be bringing her with us everytime we camp and letting her go for a stay with her new friends! :) More...

My family had vacation all planned and booked before Harper, our Newfoundland pup, came into our lives. We did a lot of research trying to find "daycares" as we had 2 days of our vacation booked with non dog friendly activities and shows. I came across Just Fer Paws and am so happy I did! We were nervous about leaving our 6 month of newfie for 8 hrs each day, as she has never been left with any other person before. Although she was happy to see us when we returned to pick her up, she was equally excited to be dropped off for doggy daycare day #2. She was barking and jumping around the second we pulled in. I'm pretty sure she is bummed her vacation from doggy daycare is over and she is stuck with us again. She had other dogs to play with, a pool to lounge in, comfy beds, AC, a large fenced in safe yard, and personal attention from the owners. I can not speak more highly of Just Fer Paws! It allowed my human family a few hours of time together at shows, all while Harper thought she was having her own little vacation with her new dog and human friends. Thank you so much! More...

Aloha Ilio Rescue is a wonderful group here on Hawai'i Island! They do their best to match pups in need of loving homes with caring families. For me, it's so rewarding to be able to assist AIR as a volunteer at their local adoption events! More...

Toby, our little poodle, is the second dog we have adopted from Aloha Ilio. He had previously been adopted to a family that returned him. Apparently he did not fit in with them (lucky for us.) Daylynn, at Aloha Ilio's expense put us in touch with someone who could help us with behavioral issues, which I thought was a rather amazing thing for them to do. As it turned out, he had no real issue at all and fit in perfectly with us and our other 2 "four-legged children." We are so very happy to have him. Best thing about adopting from Aloha Ilio Rescue is that you kind of become part of their rescue family. More...

Our pup spent a week at this awesome place during our Mardi Gras escape from the city. The owners were wonderful and took great care of our dog. You always hate to leave your pet, but when you see them running and playing on over an acre, it doesn’t feel as bad. We took him out for walks in the mountains and when we would return he was more than happy to go back and play with his new found friends. Highly recommend! More...

Our family recently adopted a puppy from this amazing rescue. When we called, the director immediately put us in touch with an outstanding foster by the name of Melanie. She told us all about this beautiful, sweet and playful leopard Catahoula and we fell in love. When Skye came to us, she was in great health, well socialized and as happy as could be. She gets along great with our other dog (who has about 50 lbs on her) and our 2 year old daughter. Thank you so much Aloha Ilio for letting us bring home the newest addition to our little family:) More...

Anna Bender

10 December 2017

We recently adopted a dog from Aloha Ilio Rescue and the experience was perfect! For us, the biggest benefit of the rescue was that the dogs live with foster families who really get to know them. Melanie gave us a very accurate description of his personality, including his quirks, so we knew he'd be a good fit before we even met him and we knew what to be prepared for. After talking with her I was comfortable enough to have them fly him to us in Honolulu without meeting him. They arranged everything for his airfare so all I had to do was meet him at the airport. It was love at first sight. He's perfect for us. They even helped us figure out how to get him acclimated once he got here. In my opinion, their adoption fee is far too low for what they do. Please round up. They're worth it! Thanks Daylynn and Melanie! We're so grateful that you helped our newest family member find his way to us! Anna, Jeff, and our little whirlwind Oliver More...

My husband and I were very nervous boarding our 11 month old lab/pit/shep mix, Remmy, for the first. However, after we dropping her off and seeing the wonderful facilities that Just Fer Paws has to offer, we were put at ease. There is a great space for the dogs to play, pools for them to cool off, toys, and plenty of shade. The owners are wonderful and have an incredible passion for the animals. The property is impeccably maintained. The owners are more than accommodating of dog parents requests. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Just Fer Paws! We will definitely be using them the next time we are in Gatlinburg. Thank you for making Remmy's first boarding go so smoothly! More...

I am very particular about where my dogs stay/who cares for them so researching and choosing a location for our destination wedding actually took longer than booking a venue! We could not have been more pleased with this amazing place!! I have two Rottweilers and a beagle - beagle has separation anxiety and one of my rottys has GI issues so has to have medication twice daily, timed properly with his feedings. They didn't mind any of this and stayed on top of all the information I provided them for my pups! I also requested to have them separate from strange dogs (I am always a little paranoid since I have two large dogs) and they didn't even hesitate to provide the extra time required to handle this request :) They were so friendly and understanding and took amazing care of all of my pups (let's be honest, I am one of those 'crazy' pet parents lol..) We also had a last-minute request for them.. the property is sooo beautiful that we asked if we could stop by with our wedding party to take pictures with our babies. Of course they didn't hesitate! WE WILL BE USING THIS KENNEL AGAIN! We have already started planning our next vacation to the mountains and plan on using this kennel again because we know how well they will take care of our pups and that they don't mind me just stopping in to check on them or taking them out for the day! HIGHLY RECOMMEND More...

So thankful for all you guys do! Sadie is our baby and has the worst separation anxiety so leaving her that first day was hard but when we picked her up I knew she had been taken care of and loved and that made me feel so much better!!! After we had inquired about another facility in the area and contacted them multiple times with no avail I found Just Fer Paws. The facilities are top notch and I know you two work tirelessly to keep up with the demand. Communication was wonderful and I was contacted immediately to set up dates and information which is wonderful business by you all! Sadie slept so well every night from playing all day long and I'm so grateful we had somewhere for her to go while we explored and had a great vacation without worrying about our baby. Thank you so much for all you two do! Your passion shines! More...

This was our fur baby's first time at a doggie daycare and we'd lie if we didn't have some anxieties about how it would go. Our 9 year old baby had a great time! The process to get him a spot for the day was easy. The paperwork only took maybe a minute to fill out and the price was unbeatable. When we came back to get our baby, we were filled in on how he did. Our baby looked happy and not at all upset that we left him for the day. All in all a great peace of mind for us while we were visiting the area. I will be sure to highly recommend Just Fer Paws to anyone I know and if back in the area will be using them again! Thank you so much for your amazing service! More...

So thankful for Just Fer Paws! Our usual doggie daycare at home wasn't available at the last minute for our 9 day trip, but we easily found Just Fer Paws website & fan page...there were a few others but we really liked what we saw with Just Fer Paws and discovered it was only 1.5 miles away from where we were staying! They returned our call within 10 min and everything was very easy to set up! We visited our 3 Chows during our stay and they were obviously so happy and looking like they were having a better vacation than we were LOL! The place is just amazing and the night kennels the cleanest I've ever seen. We were 110% comfortable with each staff member as we watched them handle newcomers. We are so thrilled we have a new home away from home for our babies! Loved the pics they posted throughout our trip and would absolutely recommend this incredible place! More...

From an outsider's view I have seen this page grow and gain respect in the community. I am grateful for all the lives they are saving, human and doggies. Give them a look-see.

I adopted two siblings from Aloha Ilio, and they are the most intelligent loving dogs. Daylynn and the AIR crew genuinely love the dogs, rescue as many as they possibly can, and go above and beyond to make sure they go to homes that are a good fit. I appreciate that they require a contract, spaying/neutering, and no tie-outs or kennels. They help make this island a better place. More...

I am so grateful that there are places like Just Fer Paws. I could tell in the pictures that were posted that Cedric was very relaxed and didn't miss being away from us at all! I know he loved the huge open area to run and play. Thank you so much for taking care of him! More...

We had a great experience leaving our Betsy for daycare! We felt confident she was being cared for and loved on. They have an awesome outdoor space for them to run too! Definitely coming back next time we are in the Smokies! More...

A really nice doggy daycare in Gatlinburg. It isn't a shelter setting. It is on a side of a mountain, on the owner's beautiful property. They have a large fenced yard for the dogs to play, and relieve themselves. They don't have a ton of requirements, like the other place in Gatlinburg. I highly recommend Just fer Paws if visiting the area with your four legged friend. More...
