Maui Humane Society Desperately Needs Foster Homes for Dogs

August 24, 2021

The Maui Humane Society is urgently requesting foster homes for dogs.

The shelter is overcapacity due to the high surrender and stray intake rates that spiked because of the pandemic.

There are currently more than 500 animals under the care of the Humane Society. That is 25% more compared to the same month last year.

Many of these animals are not ready for adoption and need care outside of a shelter until they are ready, hence the need for fostering. Homes that already have another pet are encouraged to apply. All food and medical expenses for the dog will be covered.

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?
