Maui News: dog foster homes needed

The Maui Humane Society is urgently seeking temporary foster homes for dogs, with its kennels currently full with as many dogs doubled up as possible.

Foster families are provided with all necessary supplies, and there is no experience, training or time commitment required.

“Maui Humane Society has been in emergency response mode since the fires and there has been a particular emphasis on cats in the media,” CEO Dr. Lisa Labrecque said in a news release Thursday. However, we are still running a very busy shelter as life goes on and urgently need our community’s help. By simply fostering one dog who will vacate a kennel, you are giving another dog the opportunity to have a safe place to receive medical care, potentially be reunited with its owner or be adopted.”

Those interested in fostering a dog should visit the shelter between 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and do not need an appointment. The organization requests that potential foster families bring any other dogs in their home for a meet-and-greet to ensure a smooth placement.

Aloha kakou! My name is Kilo and I am this week’s Pet of The Week at Maui Humane Society! Nothing makes my heart sing like a good tennis ball! I can be a little shy meeting new people, but I really enjoy the company of other dogs, and tennis balls! Did I mention how much I love tennis balls?
