Maui Health: Dr. Jennifer Fitzpatrick Selected as Hometown Hero


March 4, 2021

Through this COVID-19 pandemic we’ve seen many members of our community work hard to not only meet any individual challenges they may face each day, but also step up to help others. They have shown true aloha spirit, compassion, and utmost acts of giving. Whether through donations of food or other supplies, volunteering to assist those in need, or dedicating themselves to serving others and sacrificing their own health and safety in their current roles as frontline essential workers – these heroes deserve to be recognized and thanked.

Pacific Media Group and Maui Health have created “Hometown Heroes,” a platform for individuals to show their gratitude for any of their friends, family members, or even strangers, who have made a difference in the lives of others.

Maui Humane Society is proud to announce that our shelter Veterinarian, Dr. Jennifer Fitzpatrick, has been selected as a local Hometown Hero.  Dr. Fitz was chosen because of her outstanding service, attitude and commitment during COVID that benefited our shelter and animals. MHS CEO Steve MacKinnon said, “This is great recognition for one of our staff who works so tirelessly for our animals.  I am always amazed at her knowledge, willingness to help anyone, and be an innovative influence to get the best from every animal she treats.  She is an inspiration.” During the Veterinary Department quarantine period, Dr. Fitz cared for multiple sick animals in her home including two neurologically-impacted puppies and a cat with pneumonia. 

“We are incredibly proud to have Dr. Fitz on our team. She exemplifies our staff’s commitment and compassion for all animals in our community. She is a wonderful surgeon, a great shelter medicine vet and a fun and fantastic co-worker. Not only is she helping animals daily at the shelter but, like many staff members at MHS, she is continually fostering animals in need of extra care at home, on her time off.  As she says as she leaves for the day with another new foster animal on a leash or in a kennel heading out to her car…. “I like to take the broken ones”. Dr. Fitz truly makes a difference in animals’ lives and we can’t thank her enough for her dedication and loyalty to them and to the work she does with MHS,” stated Director of Veterinary Services, Kelly Maguire.
