Upon our return to MHS, we gave DJ back to a volunteer who had an Australian accent (we didn’t catch his name). I told him I think we failed because I fell in love with DJ and felt like he was such a good match for us. The volunteer said “we called that a success” and told me I probably gave DJ the best day ever. This made me think why can’t I make every day “DJ’s Best Day Ever.” Then, we briefly discussed adoption and bribing him to the mainland with Tucker. We boarded our flight home to Chicago the next morning. I thought about, talked about and looked at pictures of DJ until I called MHS when they opened on Monday. I spoke with Kam who told me DJ was already part of the Wings of Aloha program. She was going to see what DJ’s options were.
Then one day, another Cody called us. One all the way from the Pacific Northwest that felt they could help. Several months after the last of his senior dogs had passed he was ready for a new friend and was looking up “older hard to place shelter dogs” online when Cody’s profile came up. After reading his Bio and watching his video on our website, Cody felt that he just might be the right home for Cody. And boy was he!

Maui Humane Society (MHS) on Monday announced that it is opening its doors every day of the week for adoptions, as it continues to battle an overwhelming number of animals currently housed at the shelter.
“The amount of impact she has had on our organization and for our community’s animals can not be measured enough, we would not be where we are today without her. Dr. Kim has been a steady, dedicated advocate for our shelter and community animals,” said Director of Veterinary Services, Kelly Maguire.
