Beach Buddies Visitor Program
UPDATE 4/1/2020: For the safety and health of our community, Maui Humane Society has temporarily suspended its Beach Buddies program until further notice. We hope to see you all again soon but until then, here are a few alternative ways you can send all of Maui's shelter animals some love during this time.
The Maui Humane Society Beach Buddies program allows visitors and residents to take a shelter dog out for a day of fun every Wednesday & Friday from 11 am – 4 pm. Adventure to the cooler temperatures of Upcountry and explore forested hikes, splash around on the beach or grab lunch at a dog-friendly restaurant.
HOW TO SIGN UP *You must be 18 years or older to sign up.*
Sign up by clicking the ‘Sign Up’ link below and selecting your preferred Beach Buddies date on the calendar. We release the calendar dates only one month in advance, on the first of every month. There are five spots available on each Beach Buddies date plus five wait list spots. We will confirm your attendance a day or two before your outing by email and/or phone. We must get the confirmation from you before 9:00 am on the morning of your outing or we will contact our wait listed participants to take your spot.
THE DAY OF YOUR OUTING
Please arrive promptly at the shelter at 11:00 am. You’ll be given an overview of the day and we’ll run through a few procedural items. Our staff will be pairing you up with a dog based on your dog handling experience and desired activity level. You can drop the dog off any time before 4:00 pm.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Your beach buddy will be bathed and ready to head out for their adventure after the 11:00 am briefing. We’ll have a backpack full of supplies to accompany your pup; including a water bottle, bowl, towel, treats, poop bags and a seatbelt.
There is no charge for Beach Buddies, but a suggested donation of $25 helps us to continue offering this program! We also offer a 10% discount on our retail items including Beach Buddies t-shirts, tanks and stickers.
