Plucky Para-Pup Strawberry Shortcake


April 25, 2020

Strawberry Shortcake came to Maui Humane Society after being found scooting around a cul-de-sac on her own without the use of her legs. Maui Humane Society veterinarian Dr. Fitz fashioned a temporary wheelchair for this plucky para-pup and she LOVED being able to get around!

We asked for your help to get her a custom-fitted wheelchair so that she could enjoy a second chance at life on the go. Donations to the Hope Fund made it happen!

Soon after she got her wheelchair, Strawberry Shortcake found Mr. Right in local veterinary technician Frank, who was ready and willing to care for this special needs girl.

Today Strawberry Shortcake is living her best life on two paws and two wheels. She goes everywhere with her person, who supports her overall health with physical therapy and all the snuggles she can handle.

Donations to the Hope Fund make it possible for Maui Humane Society to go above and beyond what is typically possible to provide life-saving and quality-of-life improving care to Maui’s homeless animals. Grant second chances by making a gift today!

Kali was wandering around the highway and was struck by a car. A Good Samaritan saw it all happen, stopped traffic, scooped her up and brought her to MHS for help. X-rays have revealed that her hip is badly dislocated, and because of age-related arthritis she will need surgery to reduce her pain and improve her quality of life.
