Maui Humane Society Opens Doors to Public for Adoptions

(Pu’unene 11/01/21) Maui Humane Society is pleased to announce that they’re opening the doors to the shelter for adoptions 7 days a week. Additionally, appointments are no longer needed to view and adopt animals. Daily operating hours are 11am to 4pm. Due to the increased number of animals currently housed at the shelter, Humane Society officials are hoping that the extended hours and elimination of the appointment requirement will encourage more adoptions.

“It’s been a year and eight months since the pandemic resulted in us closing the doors for general animal viewing without needing to preschedule an appointment. Re-opening the doors for adopters to drop in at their convenience, including Sundays, will be mutually beneficial,” said Steve MacKinnon, CEO.

Maui Humane Society will continue to require appointments for all other services except adoptions. The organization is still looking for short term foster homes for dogs from 3 days to 2 weeks. Adoption prices are discounted to $30 for kittens and all adult animals are available by donation.

Maui Humane Society is the island’s only open admission shelter, accepting all animals in need. The organization cares for over 4000 animals a year and offers high volume, low-cost spay/neuter surgeries to the public for owned pets. All animals adopted or transferred from MHS are first medically evaluated/treated, microchipped, vaccinated, and spayed/neutered. The shelter has a robust foster and volunteer program, transfers hundreds of animals through Wings of Aloha flights to adoption-guaranteed homes, offers daily behavioral and enrichment opportunities, practices TNR as a humane method of reducing the community cat population and provides food and supplies at no cost to disadvantaged pet owners through the 4EverPets community outreach program. FY21 Live Release Rates for dogs was 95.59% and 80.87% for cats. MHS is a registered 501(c)(3) with a Platinum GuideStar rating. Follow us @mauihumanesociety or visit www.mauihumanesociety.org.
