Dr. De Giacomo gave us info that was later found to be false. She is also very difficult to deal with, is uncooperative and inaccessible. If you love your pet, do not take it there.

There are so many serious issues with ACF. Why don't all of you file a class action against this place? At the very least, maybe this place will be put out of its misery!

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!

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 us 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.\n\nUpon 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. \n\nAs 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!!!

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!!!!!

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!

I have had several horrible experiences here and sadly, when an emergency arrives sometimes you don't have a choice. Very cold upon arrival. I knew my animal (a little kitten I found was starving, sick, bloated with rigid abdomen and seemingly blind), I've had so many pets thru the years, even though I wanted to believe there was a chance I knew in my heart there wasn't. Long story short the vet guilted me into admitting it, saying give it a chance and that they thought the cat would pull thru.

God, I never learn. So I did my best to pay a lot of fees and the cat was there for 5 days. (Well over 600 dollars.) Never got better. When I would go to visit they would leave me waiting forever and then hand me a wet and i hear the kitty would scream like it was still hungry. I asked if it was eating and they were like Oh yes! Ofcourse! I took the cat home cause they said it was "better" and had to rush him back because it wouldn't stop screaming and I didn't know what to do.

Finally, I lost it and wanted to know how exactly they could say the kitten was better when it was obviously WORSE than when I brought it in A FREAKING WEEK AGO and a vet told me AND I QUOTE, "Anyone that looks at this cat knows it's NOT going to make it."

I burst into tears and explained what I had been told days ago about how they said it could probably be saved. Still not knowing what to do I left the kitten cause she said she would keep it warm in the incubator. I felt so horrible, words can't describe.

The next morning I received a call from the vet saying the cat was "DEAD" and that I still owe her $250 more!" This was the last time I was there, a few years ago. They broke my heart because I was hoping to make the kitty better but this facility is so greedy they couldn't refuse an opportunity to scam a nice person. The kitten suffered tremendously because of their greed. They couldn't even PRETEND to care. Awful person.

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. If you love your pet this is not the place for you!!!\n\nPros: nothing\n\nCons: everything\n

I'd hate another person to regret that choice and risk their pet life.....This vet is incompetent , crazy, and will rip you off... My sole regret in life is brining my cat to this horrible vet. It was an emergency situation on a given Friday and my normal vet was closed. I ended up at Dr. Giacomo office because I was in a bind with my vet not being open. BIG MISTAKE. Long story short... I was over charged and my cat was mistreated which lead to his near death. Thankfully my vet was able to save his life, but it was rocky road to recovery that took months. Had a vet who actually knew what they were doing treated my cat in the first place it would not have been a dire situation. I was quite upset after this whole ordeal, but I can assure you there is no arguing with this vet... the woman is delusional, lies, and admits no wrong. I had several other vets review the case and were horrified by her treatment to my cat. I got personal call from one of her old staff, telling me that not only does she have COMPLAINTS REGULARY, but that she just makes prices up based on how much thinks she can get out of you

My personal experience with this place sickens me to relate. My cat was on IV and under urgent care for internal problems, I took along a full medical history including copies of bloodwork results and ultrasounds done just days before. The vet I spoke with (an old woman who is lucky I don't recall her name) pressured me to have ALL of these tests redone, claiming that they could not accept the results of tests from other clinics. Desparate to help save my pet, I agreed - adding 1300 dollars to an already steep bill. (Of course, they would not do anything until I paid their estimate in full. More charges followed on the final bill, which had to be paid before I could see my cat.) The results of their tests (which cost hundreds more than a regular clinic for the same things) were exactly the same. My poor cat had no rest (their back room is constant chaos - all the cats are down a wall which faces an active treatment/operating area) for 36 hours... and they lost her bedding which I had asked them to keep with her for her comfort. On the way back to our regular vet she began panting (a sign of serious distress in cats) and had to be put in an oxygen tent upon her return. She has recovered now... but I pray I will never need the services of this so called "foundation" again. Sad to say, if your pet is in an emergency situation and won't survive the night, this place is NOT EVEN your last resort.

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 overlooked 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.\n\nand 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.

I should have listened to the reviews on here.....My cat is suffering from their treatment which was supposed to be a very simple procedure, they also charged me incredible amount of money for after treatment. On top of everything the Veterinary was very rude for no reason! I definitely don't recommend this place!

This is litteraly the worst animal hospital ever..

This is a no kill facility. that means that whether imperfect or unadopted the animal lives. They are also against cages for their animals. It is a little crazy since the kitties are roaming throughout the office, but it also gives you more ability to see how a potential adoptee will relate to other animals and free space. It is a nonprofit location as well. So if they rely on fund raising and income from services and adoptions to continue services. It is a great place to find a great companion.

I am extremely disappointed in this place. And I now realize that they make it a habit of false charges. I went to get paperwork filled so I could send my dog overseas. She filled it out incorrectly. When I went to the USDA for a second signature, they confiscated the paperwork, because the vet did not date it, however it looked as if all the shots were up to date. HE was unable to correct the paperwork due to the date. I thought, no problem. I will go back to the vet and get it done correctly. I never even was allowed to meet with the vet. She filled it out and reexamined my dog. I was given the bill for $170. I was quite surprised. I asked why I was being billed for paperwork that was filled out wrong in the first place. She tried to blame me. I then asked to see the bill and saw that she gave my dog a shot that was not due for another 7 years and she charged my for that. I asked why she was given a shot that she didn't need. This was all through the receptionist. The vet wouldn't speak directly to me to answer my questions. I was told I was to pay the bill or leave the paperwork. Otherwise they would call the police on me. I needed the paperwork badly, so I paid the bill. Later noticed when reviewing other records that this has been the routine. I am going to report her to the Vet Board if they have one.

They actually really care about your pet. They are warm people that understand just how precious our pets are to us. I would recommend to any of my friends that they should check them out.

Visited this establishment to adopt a cat. Found an adorable black, 6-month cat to adopt and filled out the 4-page adoption papers. Visited facility 3 times to study and interact with the potential adoptee cat and to inspect facility and staff members. Received a phone call advising that black cats can't be adopted until after Halloween in order to prevent the possibility of satanic, sacrificial ritual on the potential cat. I was attempting to adopt a cat in September. I did not see any written warnings or received any word of this policy during the application process or during my three visits that I couldn't adopt a black cat until after Halloween. I was advised to check back after the 31st and my chances to adopt this black cat would be increased. I was advised that this was a policy and they didn't want to show discrimination to let me adopt but not others. They certainly displayed satanic profiling on me?! I was advised that I could adopt any of the other non-black cats, just not the black cats. I highly commend their no-kill efforts, but I'm highly disappointed in their sensibility. In general, the demand to adopt black cats are far less as compared to other non-black cats; so, this is just another hurdle in the adoption process for black cats. I will look at other avenues to adopt a rescue cat; and hopefully, the other establishment and their staff members will have a little more sensibility to recognize a far-fetched possibility from reality in potential adopters. \r\n\r\n\r\n

After determining my dog has an ear infection. They did not have the prescription medication available. I have been calling them for 3 weeks now and the medication is still not in. They manage to charge me for it on my exam bill. I get the run around every time, it coming in from the mainland, the supplier is out. \r\n\r\n
