4everpets keeps animals at home

The 4EverPets program was designed to help people keep their pets

4EverPets is a community resource to assist low-income families and individuals of Maui, as well as those experiencing financial hardship, who need help caring for their beloved pets. Our goal is to help provide the resources needed in order to prevent people from having to surrender their pets to the shelter and allow their animal companions to remain in a loving home. Check out our 4EverPets FAQs to learn more!

Help Us Help Our Community

 

We’re grateful for PetSmart Charities for providing funding to establish the 4EverPets program. Following the establishment of the program, Greater Good Charities donated 21 pallets of dry dog food, arranging the large scale shipping and delivery to Maui. This food was shared with pet owners in the community who were in need, Hawaii Animal Rescue Foundation, Maui Pitbull Rescue and the island of Molokai. 4EverPets is both grant and donor funded.  Grants we received allow us to primarily provide assistance with pet food with some allocations to allow us to reach our ultimate goal… to keep pets in their homes. 

Private donations of supplies and money allow us to provide support with non-food items, such as leashes, collars, training for dogs in need, licensing for spayed and neutered dogs, etc.

If you would like to donate any supplies, please label them “4EverPets” and drop them off at MHS. If you would like to make a monetary donation, please click the link below or make a donation in person at the shelter noting 4EverPets on your check or donation form.   

Watch to see the impact of 4EverPets in the community below

We love helping animals and saving lives, and we also want to work with our community to ensure that they are able to keep their animals in loving homes. 

With the eviction crisis causing uncertainty for millions of Americans on the mainland, as well as kama'āina in Hawai'i, it's important to know that there are resources out there that can help. Shelters are a safe haven for animals in need, but they can also provide assistance for folks who need to pay rent and can't afford all of the necessary items their pets need.

That's where 4EverPets comes in. Our 4EverPets program provides food and flea medicine to those in need. But we are low on funds and items and could use your help.

Behavior Care Team

Do you need help teaching your pet new behaviors while decreasing unwanted ones?

Please check out the resource page on our website for training tips & tools for common behavioral issues.

Note: Due to the potential for serious injury, canine and feline aggression are best handled by a professional who specializes in aggressive behaviors. Because phone or email counseling is inadequate for addressing serious behavior concerns, we ask that you contact a qualified professional for help.

Looking for private or group training options?

There are a couple options for you. We have Rally and Obedience classes that take place at MHS on various nights of the weeks (sign up is required). Or you can visit Ohana Pet Training for a variety of training options.

FAQs

What is 4Ever Pets?

Hey, thanks for asking! 4EverPets is a community resource to assist families and individuals of Maui, that are low-income or experiencing financial hardship, who need help feeding their beloved pets. Our goal is to help provide the resources needed in order to prevent people from having to surrender their pets to the shelter and allow their animal companions to remain in a loving home. 

Is 4EverPets just a food program?

Absolutely not!  We want to assist as much as possible to help keep your pets at home with you.  If you need help, please feel free to email, call, or text if you need assistance with food or other things.  This includes help with dishes, flea meds, leashes, collars, licenses for spayed and neutered animals, beds, behavior issues, etc.  While we cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide specific things, we will always do our best to assist. 

We have also provided many leashes, collars, harnesses, beds, etc., to people who are experiencing homelessness or financial hardship and could not provide these items for their pets.  Our ability to assist an animal is determined on a case-by-case basis, and our primary goal is to defer intake and prevent animals from being surrendered, but we will do our best to assist anyone who needs help. If you have a question about whether or not we might be able to assist you with a particular issue, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We will do what we can and try to find creative ways to help everyone to the best of our ability. 

Can I still sign up for the Trail Mix program?

4EverPets will replace our donation-based Trail Mix program. Unlike Trail Mix, 4EverPets is primarily grant-funded – which means we’ll be able to provide more reliable support to you, our community! 

 

Is 4EverPets just for dogs and cats?

No! So far we have been able to help people feed their pet guinea pigs, rabbits, chickens, and horses, in addition to all of the dogs and cats.

As long as you let us know what you need in order to keep your animals happy, healthy, and at home, we will do our best to assist you. 

Is it true that people have to participate in spay/neuter efforts to be a part of 4EverPets?

Yes. This is a requirement of the grant we’ve received in order to run this amazing program. We can help with this if needed. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!!

How do I sign up for 4EverPets?

 

  1. Provide your name, contact information and number of pets when signing up online.
  2. Participate in spay/neuter (low/no cost surgery is available at MHS including microchipping, vaccinations and licensing)
  3. Bring your State-issued identification to pick up food

Cat colony caretakers can sign up for pick-ups on Mondays to coincide with Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Days, and pet owners will be able to sign up online for appointments throughout the week. 

Can I refer people to your program?

Yes, that would be fantastic!

If you know someone who has been impacted by COVID or is struggling financially and needs assistance, please refer them to us so we may help our community members in need. Please also remember to “Be Pono” and conserve these limited resources for those who truly need it. 

Where are the items distributed?

 Items will be distributed from BeeBee’s Kitchen (formerly the Farewell Gazebo near the front entrance of Maui Humane Society) to those who have scheduled appointments for pick-up.

Colony caretakers can sign up for pickups on Mondays to coincide with Feral Cat Spay/Neuter days, and pet owners will be able to sign up online for appointments throughout the week.

We look forward to having volunteers manning the Kitchen during distribution hours but until then, please call the Outreach Coordinator at 808-495-6242 when you arrive for your appointment.  

Can I donate to 4EverPets?

Absolutely, that would be so helpful!  If you would like to make a monetary donation, you can do so on our website by clicking here.

Donate to Support 4Ever Pets

Donations of new or gently used pet supplies are also greatly appreciated, since our grants (while amazing) limit us to buying pet food. We can always use leashes, collars, harnesses, wet and dry food, treats, toys and other common pet supplies!

Can I help with 4EverPets?

We would love that! If you’ve already signed up to volunteer with Maui Humane Society, just let our Volunteer Coordinator know that you’d like to help with distribution and we can set it up.

If you’d like to do something else to help, such as organize a food/supply drive or make beds for homeless dogs, we welcome your creativity and invite you to reach out to us!
