Maui Humane Society Receives Rachael Ray Save Them All COVID-19 Relief Grant from Best Friends Animal Society to Help Save Homeless Pets

June 16, 2020 Pu’unene, HI — Maui Humane Society is pleased to have received a Rachael Ray Save Them All COVID-19 Relief Grant from Best Friends Animal Society to ensure that community outreach services continue to help save the lives of animals living on Maui.

“This grant allows us to continue our lifesaving work by supporting pet owners who are facing financial challenges and to keep pets in their homes, which is central to our organization’s mission as we serve our community,” said CEO Steve MacKinnon. “In this uncertain time, our goal is to assist the many families who’ve been economically impacted due to the pandemic and need to provide for their pets. We are grateful to our community for their support and appreciate the help from Best Friends Animal Society in making our new 4EverPets program possible.”
Maui Humane Society is an active partner in the Best Friends Network, which offers resources and support to fellow shelters, rescue groups, and animal welfare organizations across the country.

“When you choose to foster or adopt your next pet, you are becoming part of the solution right here in our community,” said Nikki Russell, Director of Community Outreach. “And community is more important than ever right now.”
The Rachael Ray Save Them All COVID-19 Relief Program, administered by Best Friends and funded by The Rachael Ray Foundation™, provides COVID-19 relief grants to shelters and rescue groups across the country. The Rachael Ray Foundation helps animals in need and is funded by a portion of proceeds from each sale of Rachael’s pet food, Nutrish®.
