Ali’i Unleashed is an expansion and fourth location of Ali’i Animal Hospital. Founded by Dr. Joanna Cook, Ali’i Animal Hospital’s Veterinarian-Owner and Matt Malta, on the value of “Helping Pets Live Their Best Lives.” Ali’i Animal Hospital opened their first state-of-the-art facility in Kakaako on September 24, 2019 as both a hospital and resort. The popularity of their pet resort services in urban-dense Honolulu encouraged the opening of Ali’i Unleashed. Since their inception, Ali’i Animal Hospital has opened clinics in Kailua and Kahala, providing four years of superior veterinarian care, pet boarding, daycare, training, and grooming services.

Ali’i Unleashed is open seven days week from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., located at 1246 Hopaka Street in Honolulu, off Piikoi Street, near Kapiolani Boulevard. The facility’s recreational areas provide pet parents access to live cameras for reassurance, dog training programs for all ages, sizes, and temperaments, designed to teach pups the skills needed to thrive in the different stages of their life, and roomy lodging kennels, supervised by fear-free, medically-trained staff who provide each guest with all the attention and love they need while parents are away.
