KHON2 story MHS over capacity

HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Maui Humane Society has been in SOS Foster mode for the past four weeks, allowing anyone to foster an animal without previous experience. While the community has helped get animals out of the shelter and into temporary homes, MHS is still at critical capacity levels.

As of Wednesday, there are 467 animals (including fosters) currently in their care. MHS said the animals are stressed and need help getting out.

Of the 467 animals: 310 are cats, 100 are dogs and 57 are listed as exotic animals.

If you find an animal, do not bring it to the shelter. There’s no space available to care for animals that don’t need to be there. Instead, file a report on the MHS website, notify their Humane Enforcement Officers and hold on to the animal if it’s safe in your home.

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.”
