We are reaching out to you with urgency and a heavy heart to address the crisis of animal overpopulation. With over 130 dogs in care and only 40 kennels, for the first time in years, Maui Humane Society has had to consider at-risk animals for euthanasia as a last resort due to limited space and capacity of care.
PetHub, Inc. announced it has partnered with Maui Humane Society to launch a new dog license and ID tag program to keep pets safe and increase the number of lost animals reunited with their owners.

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!
