Do You Need a Helping Paw?

The wildfires of August 8, 2023 were absolutely devastating. Maui Humane Society responded immediately, side-by-side with animal lovers locally and nationally… but our work is far from complete. Maui Humane Society is dedicated to providing ongoing support to Lahaina’s pets and people.

Whether you’ve lost a cherished pet and are still hoping to be reunited with them, require assistance in moving with your dog, or need veterinary care for your cat, Maui Humane Society is here to help.

Keeping pets and people together

The best place for your furry friend to be is with you. Maui Humane Society is committed to offering support to make that happen. 4EverPets is Maui Humane Society’s community resource to assist pet owners experiencing financial hardship.
