HONOLULU (KHON2) — The BISSELL Pet Foundation is hosting its “Empty the Shelters” event and the Maui Humane Society will be participating.

This event will be held at over 250 shelters nationwide. MHS has dogs, kittens, guinea pigs and rabbits that are ready to become a part of your family.

Hoping to reduce the rates of euthanasia, founder Cathy Bissell said “Empty the Shelters is the largest funded adoption event in the country, and by extending the event to three weeks, we can help meet the immediate need to save lives.”

This summer adoption event will start Monday, July 11 through Sunday, July 31.

All adoptions are by donation only.

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?
