Wondering how you can adopt a pet without coming into the shelter? It's easy! 

  1. First, view our available animals online and identify a pet that you are interested in bringing home.
  2. Call us at (808) 877-3680 ext. 3 to make a virtual appointment to meet the animal.  We’ll provide you with some additional information and set a date!  You can use Zoom, FaceTime, Skype… whatever works best for you.  In some instances, animals may be living in foster homes.  The contact information for the foster parent will be provided in the event that the virtual meet-and-greet needs to be arranged with them. In this case, you can skip the call to us and get in touch with them directly.
  3. If you are ready to proceed, you will have the option of placing a hold on that pet until an appointment can be set for an in-person meeting.


Humane Enforcement services have resumed normal operations. Dispatch can be reached for non-emergency calls from 9am to 3pm. Emergency Animal Response is available 24/7 at (808) 877-3680 ext. 211.


Maui Humane Society's COmmunity Spay/Neuter Clinic has resumed full operations and is accepting appointments from the public.  To schedule an appointment for surgery, call (808) 877-3680 ext. 3. Animals must be in good health for surgery. Kittens must be a minimum of 3 months of age to be eligible for spay/neuter surgery.


Please book your spay/neuter surgery appointments prior to trapping a community cat.  Trap rentals will be offered within 7 days of a confirmed surgery appointment. Please call our customer service team prior to the trapping of any cats so we can best assist your needs and make an appointment if needed. We are only offering spay/neuter surgeries at this time for community cats. Sick or injured community cats will need to be surrendered to MHS or treated at a private veterinary clinic.


We still need foster families to assist with our increasing animal intake numbers.  If you are interested, please contact or 877-3680 ext. 221 and visit our fostering page to take the virtual orientation course.


Maui’s economy has been hit hard by the COVID pandemic.  Maui Humane Society is committed to assisting our community’s pet owners who are facing challenging financial situations. Our goal is to keep pets in their homes and families together. If you or someone you know is requiring assistance to feed or care for a pet, please get in touch with our Community Outreach Team at
