A Citizens Guide to Pet Ownership

Maui County regulations have been passed to ensure the humane treatment of Maui's pets and the safety of our community. Restraint regulations protect public safety, as well as your pet from any number of unpredictable dangers. Pet licensing regulations ensure the return of your lost pet, and regulations regarding excessive barking and waste pick-up help to maintain a positive relationship between pet owners and their neighbors.

The Maui Humane Society has created the Maui Humane Society Citizen's Guide to Animal Regulations in Maui County to help simplify animal welfare laws for the average pet owner. It is designed to provide you with the information you need to be a compliant citizen, a considerate neighbor, a responsible pet owner and a positive force in your community.
