Fire Response Efforts
Our Work Continues
As we continue caring for injured and displaced animals of the Lahaina fires, we are committed to supporting Maui’s pets and people. Resources and financial support for pet owners impacted are available, and there are countless ways to help our community heal.
Save the Fire Cats
Waived Fees for Lahaina Cats
Whether you want to take home a friendly feline through traditional adoption, or help community cats acclimate to a new neighborhood, Lahaina’s cats need you.
$20 Dog Adoptions in February
Adoptable dogs ages 1 year and older
Capacity remains at an all-time high, and we desperately need to make space for incoming pets who need critical care. Now is the time to adopt!
Volunteering Saves Lives
Volunteering is one of the best ways you can give back to the animals of Maui. Without our volunteers dedicating 18,970 hours of time last year, the equivalent of nine full-time employees, Maui Humane Society would not be able to care for 4,919 animals! We are extremely proud of the difference our volunteers make, in our shelter, with our animals, and throughout the community.
Cat Reunites with Its Owners in Montana After It Was Displaced by the Maui Wildfires: It ‘Took a Village’
Earlier this week, the Maui Humane Society in Hawaii reunited a cat with her owners after she was displaced by the wildfires that occurred in the area last year. The cat, named Mahina, was found by the organization after surviving 100 days in the burn zone, the Maui Humane Society said in a post shared on Facebook.
Mahina finally arrived after dealing with flights in snowy Montana weather. She was thrilled to be reunited with her family to watch NFL football, one of her favorite treats besides playing with her feather toy. The Maui Humane Society covered the cost of Mahina’s health certificate and travel. Hawaiian Airlines and Alaska Airlines ensured she was safe and sound on her flight, and a trusted transporter brought her from Seattle to Montana.
Since the devastating Aug. 8 wildfire in Lahaina, Maui Humane Society said it has taken in nearly 800 animals. The animal shelter continues to rescue animals from the burn zone almost daily, according to a news release. However, at this time, MHS is putting most of its resources toward caring for pets in their shelter and those living with displaced residents.
