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.
