I live in Hawaii, and I can warn you now that even with your basic needs provided for, you will find it difficult due to extremely high cost of living. Definitely a good idea to find homes for many of your pets, though I'm very sorry that you will have to part with them.
HI too has such a housing shortage that most rental agencies and landlords have strict no-pet policies. I'm currently hunting for a pet-friendly apartment, and they are $1400/month and up for a 1BR in Honolulu (you will probably be able to find something SLIGHTLY cheaper since you can live outside the city itself).
G/l--not trying to discourage you, only trying to warn you about the challenges in case you end up in Hawaii so that you are better prepared and it isn't as much of a financial shock.
If you check out the rental listings on Craigslist, it will give you a good idea of what you up against as far as housing...http://honolulu.craigslist.org/
