Maui Humane Society reportedly receives about five lost pet claims every day. That’s upwards of 1,800 lost dogs at Maui’s shelter a year. To curb those numbers, the nonprofit has partnered with PetHub, a modern pet identification system out of Washington state, to distribute specialized pet tags that owners can add to their animal’s collar.
For Maui dog owners who recently received their new 2023/2024 dog license in the mail, the digital tag must be activated online. “The amount of stray dogs that we have enter our shelter every single day is unbelievable. It’s just every animal wearing a collar with some type of ID we would immediately be able to reunite them with their family,” said Jennifer Goguen, Maui Humane Society.
