The five-year-old male feline survived Maui’s devastating Lahaina fires in August and lived in his neighborhood, which was considered a fire zone, for about a month before being picked up by Maui Humane Society rescuers.
“Diana had nowhere to take him back to, so she signed him over to Maui Humane Society, providing the path for him to move forward for adoption,” Smith said. “Then, I officially adopted him, giving me the ability to bring him to FieldHaven, where we will find him just the right home with a family who will cherish him as much as his Maui one did.”
Heroic rescuers who dedicate their lives to saving “Fire Cats” after wildfires decimated Paradise in California, have traveled to Maui. Their unique skills and experience are helping save the day on the island. “Here is a rare sighting of two different species of cat rescuers together: Shannon Jay and Joy Smith of FieldHaven Feline Center. They landed in Maui this morning and went right to work.”
