Maui Now: Maui Humane Society Hosts First Public Adoption Event in 18+ Months on Sept. 18


September 16, 2021

The Maui Humane Society hosts its first public adoption event in over a year and a half on Saturday, Sept. 18, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Organization leaders say the event is organized to address the overwhelming number of pets (almost 500) that are currently at the shelter and in foster care.

No appointments are needed and adoption fees for the upcoming event are waived, courtesy of the Dave and Cheryl Duffield Foundation. The list of animals up for adoption includes: dogs, cats, kittens, ducks, bunnies and guinea pigs.

Maui Humane Society reports it continues to experience a high number of animals being surrendered due to the pandemic impacts.

“Thanks to the phenomenal support from our foster families who are currently caring for 297 animals and a busy Wings of Aloha transfer schedule, we are able to juggle the large influx of pets that started in June,” said CEO Steve MacKinnon. “However, we really hope this event will encourage adoptions and that the public will open their hearts and homes to a new family member.”

The event will feature outdoor vendors including Gus’ Hawaiian Shave Ice, Woof Jerky; and cookies donated by Maui Cookie Lab are complimentary for those adopting.
