KHON2: An SOS call from the Maui Humane Society

SOS Foster: Toro

HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Maui Humane Society is sending out a Save our Shelter (SOS) call as its shelters exceed kennel capacity.

The humane society said it currently has 105 dogs in their care looking for homes while only having a kennel capacity for 40 dogs.

In order to make additional space, dogs have been paired in kennels but you can lend a helping hand through the SOS Foster program.


SOS Foster allows anyone in the community to foster an animal free of charge. Necessary supplies will be provided and how long the animal stays in your home is up to your schedule.

To offer the community more opportunities to meet their animals, the Maui Humane Society will be open until 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 17.

Another way the community can help is through the Paws-to-Adopt program (a 10-day adoption trial) or the Beach Buddies & Dog on Demand Programs.

Overcrowding at Maui Humane Society has staff putting out a desperate plea to the public. KITV4 speaks with Jenny Miller, interim CEO, “This is unprecedented, the increase of intake year over year is crazy, the number of strays coming in is really high, there’s no rhyme or reason with the summer months, and our last option is to reach out to the public with a real plea and ask if anyone can help us.”
