Beach Buddies Visitor Program

Visitors can offer one of our chosen 'Beach Buddies' a day of fun out of the shelter every Wednesday and Friday from 11am to 4pm.

A suggested donation of $20 is greatly appreciated and helps to offset costs associated with operating the program. You can support Beach Buddies by using the PayPal link below, gifting items from the shelter's Amazon Wishlist, or donating in person at the time of your excursion.

Sign up using the link below to guarantee a dog for that day. Available dogs are assigned on a first come, first served basis. Sign up at least 48 hours in advance to get first pick of dogs available for that week's outing! If you are available less than 48 hours from a scheduled Beach Buddy day, let us know if you would like to be placed on standby - we will call you if a dog is available.

Already a Maui Humane Society volunteer? You're welcome to sign up, too!

How It Works: Each outing will start with a brief talk about safety, what to do and where to go on the island! When you arrive at the shelter at 11am you will be greeted by a staff member or volunteer at the main entrance. We will have your 'Beach Buddy' backpack ready with supplies and your dog will be bathed and ready to go!

I would like to bring my own dogs along on my Beach Buddies excursion. Is that allowed? Although our Beach Buddies are often chosen for being dog-friendly, their compatibility with other dogs is still unpredictable so we ask that your Beach Buddy be the only dog during your excursion. Our shelter dogs share kennels, so they benefit greatly from the one-on-one attention that Beach Buddies provides. Plus, being the only dog gives your Beach Buddy a chance to really stand out to potential adopters!
