Top 16 fundraisers will get to have a slumber party with the Maui Humane Society’s pets

Three luxury resorts in Hawaii have partnered with the Maui Humane Society to host shelter dogs for a single night, and some guests will be able to stay with these furry friends.

The guests who get a chance to stay with the dogs will be top fundraisers from the humane society’s “Wags to Riches” campaign.

 

“We love the idea of taking a homeless shelter dog to a world-class resort where they’ll be spoiled for the night,” said the Maui Humane Society’s CEO Steve MacKinnon, in a statement. “Alternatively, those who stay in the shelter with our cats and dogs will also be treated like guests as we roll out the red carpet with a luxury hotel theme.”

The Wags to Riches fundraising contest will conclude on Friday, April 30, at noon. The top 16 fundraisers will be announced at the close of the contest. So far, the Maui Humane Society has reached 19% of its $50,000 goal, according to the donation platform Qgiv.

 

Throughout the pandemic shelter animal adoption and fostering rates have increased in the U.S. while families have spent more time at home.
