I am a true animal lover with all my heart.... If you are like me or have very little love for your pets PLEASE, PLEASE do not take them to this place to get them tortured, traumatized, or even put to death!!

The doctor in ACF is pure evil in disguise. Please google this place and read every review about them to find about what this place is all about.

~God Bless you all

Do not take your beloved pets ...

Do not take your beloved pets to this establishment. I would have given zero or negative star if I could. I share the same experience like most people had posted.

After 3 years, I am still disgusted with how my cat was treated when I took her to Animal Care Foundation to get a regular check-up and how my cat died a month later because of the fluid treatment that the vet ordered for her. The fluid treatment was supposed to help my cat's weakening kidneys but it ended up weakeni
...view moreng my cat's heart (confirmed by a second opinion). I shouldn't have listened to Animal Care Foundation's vet at the first place to start the fluid treatment on my cat. The vet even threatened and told me that it would be me who kill my cat when I sensed something was really wrong and wanted to stop the fluid treatment and take my cat home.

This vet at Animal Care Foundation appears to care about your pets but she really doesn't. All she cares about is to milk more money from you. Do NOT take your pets there so you won't regret like I do.

NO STARS... DONT DO IT! DONT G...

NO STARS... DONT DO IT! DONT GO THERE. ITS THE SMELLIEST, GROSSEST, WORST VET IN HAWAII. SAVE YOUR FURRY FRIEND, PAY THE EXTRA AND GO TO A REAL VET. this place will give your animal fleas, ringworm, or death. Dr Sabina De Giacoma will never take responsibilty.

5 Stars to all the posts here and not

5 Stars to all the posts here and not to ACF, for ACF zero Stars. Mahalo nui loa. I was so totally thinking of bringing my 3 month old pup and a 4 year old dog for Neutering. Thanks to this post, I'm so not driving that far to get bad news about my own pet. This is crazy. I'll just wait for this ""hiatus"" with The Hawaiian Humane Society and get a certificate for $$$ then paying a visit to ACF. Just not well. Hewa! Hewa!

NO STARS

Last Friday (4/13/12)...we had an extremely traumatizing experience with one of our furry kids. We took our healthy cat in to be neutered at AFC. Several hours later we were notified that she was fine and cleared to be picked up. We we running late and arrived there at 8:05 pm and found the gate and elevator into the building locked. For 15 minutes +, we called both the office numbers as well as the emergency numbers repeatedly...no answer. Thankfully, the building superintendent saw u...view mores and opened the gate. My fiance went directly into the office where the tech said only this: I need your ID for the medication, this is your bill and there is your cat. When he brought her out of the office, It was clearly evident that she was in major distress. She was completely unresponsive, tongue hanging out of her mouth, gums white, eyes half opened and fully dilated and cold!!! Again we called both the office and the emergency number to no avail. We immediately headed to another animal hospital, unfortunately within 10 minutes of leaving the AFC she stopped breathing while in my arms. Nevertheless, we sped to the animal hospital to see if she could be saved. After an extensive examination (necropsy) by the second doctor, it was determined that she died from internal bleeding. He found that there was no sign of a suture on the left side of her uterus and only one on the right side. We were told that blood had already pooled on one side of her body causing discoloration which indicated to me that her bleeding was not sudden. Needless to say, the sorrow of losing her only ignited my ire.

Upon speaking with Dr, Di Giacomo, she attempted to deflect responsibility then and continues to do so now even after the presented with the findings of the second doctor.

As far as I'm concerned, this horrific experience could only be due to negligence on the part of the AFC. Long story short: DON'T EVER TAKE YOUR FURRY LOVED ONES TO ANIMAL CARE FOUNDATION because this may happen to you!!!

It was the worst experience.... Same as the others

They attempted to scare me with with the worst case scenarios and wanted me to do a diognostic for almost $2000. The vet is evil and will attempt to extort money from you by playing on your fear and sadness, they definetly didn't care about my pet... I took my sweetie and left immediately after i realized their motive, I knew she wasn't going to get better in that environment. I WISH I HAD LISTENED TO OTHERS ABOUT THIS PLACE!!!!!

Place for traumatizing your pet

This is the WORST and most unprofessional vet practice I have ever come across. We chose this vet based on convenience of location and really regret that decision now. Prepare for your pet to be muzzled and to be told that you can't go back to the examining room with your pet. So if you are looking to traumatize your pet ... this is where you take them!

WORST experience ever

I went to this clinic one time and will never go back. First of all, they kept me and my very nervous dog waiting for 45 minutes in the waiting roon. Then my dog's entire exam and treatment was performed in the back room. I like very much to be a part of my dog's plan of care, however, at this clinic I felt pushed to the side. The Vet I saw had the worst bed side manner I have ever encountered. My husband and I both thought that she didn't even like animals by the way she was acting. I...view moref you love your pet this is not the place for you!!!

Pros: nothing

Cons: everything

My cat Died of mistreatment & My money milked.... :(

What KIND of a woman did I leave my kitty with???? One day perhaps I can forgive you, but never myself for the part I played in what my cat must have suffered at your hands. I had him to a vet 3 times in less than a week and then came to you for second opinion. I brought the xays and bloodwork to show you. You agreed there was an obstruction in the bowel. You said you could sometimes get it to pass if you gave a warm IV of water and force fed him. No mention of danger in treatment. I o...view moreverlooked that little voice inside me as your demeaner was giving off bad vibes. I left my sweet kitty and you called in 2 days to say he died.

and I was charged with a bill of $800!! Not that I care about the money, I would've given $1000s if my sweet angel was still alive.

NO GO!

Do not take your animal to this Facility, they really do not care about their health. Don't do the same mistake as I did, my dog died because of them!
