About Rocky Kanaka

Pet Rescue Advocate, Emmy Nominated TV Host & Pet Chef

Rocky’s videos and social channels spread awareness about pet adoption, fostering, and volunteering with the goal of inspiring his audience to help animals in their local community. 

Rocky often travels the country helping dogs that have been forgotten, abandoned or abused, and sharing those stories on his shows Save Our Shelter on Netflix and Dog’s Day Out on YouTube and Facebook.  Rocky has worked with many notable brands including PetSmart, Bissell, Chevrolet, Furbo, Sundays For Dogs, Audible, Hellofresh and more. 

His passion for health and nutrition mixed with his love for pets were the inspiration for his pet treat business called The Dog Bakery and most recently his coffee brand Flip Coffee, named after his late Boxer Flip.

He can often be seen in one of the bakeries creating new recipes and connecting with the local community of pups and their humans. 

Originally from the islands of Hawaii, Rocky now calls Southern California his home. Rocky, and his wife Kelly, are pet parents to Kobe, a blind cane corso. And…all the foster dogs they rehabilitate until they find their forever homes.
