Maui Humane Society kicked off BISSELL Pet Foundation’s “Empty the Shelter” adoption event yesterday, which runs through July 10.

“We adopted out two dogs, five kittens and a guinea pig today, a great start. Still, LOTS of animals need a home,” said Director of Development & Marketing Jenny Miller after the event’s first day.

For a limited time, Maui Humane Society dog adoption fees are only $25 (including County license fees), and all kittens, cats and critters are available for adoption by donation.

Maui Humane Society has been experiencing a high number of animals entering the shelter and in foster homes, a situation recently exasperated by animal transfer flight cancellations caused by a heatwave in the Pacific Northwest.

“For many people who have adopted a pet, people tell me ‘I’m saving this animal, but really that animal is saving me’ because, you know, the animals give so much back to us, so that’s really rewarding when you see that bond and knowing that you’re helpful in maintaining that bond.”
