PUUNENE, Hawaii (KHON2) – The Maui Humane Society is hosting an Empty the Shelters campaign next month.

From July 7 to 11, they’re reducing the fee to adopt a pet.

This event is part of a nationwide effort hosted by the Bissell Pet Foundation.

Earlier this week the Maui Humane Society said its animal population had surged to critical capacity with multiple dogs sharing space meant for just one dog.

In an effort to make space for more intake, they said they had flown 86 animals to the mainland.

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?
