JACKSON GALAXY is speaking at Maui Humane Society for all CAT LOVERS! Join us for a FREE presentation from Jackson Galaxy about all things cats on Saturday, November 12 at 1pm! You gotta hear it from the cat daddy himself…
There’s another animal overpopulation issue on Maui. Maui Humane Society says it’s actually a guinea pig and rabbit problem, and right now, has over 50 of the small animals. It has capacity for only 20.
The Maui Humane Society has been in SOS Foster mode for the past four weeks, allowing anyone to foster an animal without previous experience. While the community has helped get animals out of the shelter and into temporary homes, MHS is still at critical capacity levels.
Fostering is not a lifetime commitment, but it is a commitment to saving a life. With over 100 dogs in our care, dog fosters are KEY to saving a life! Meet our Dog Foster Team at Maui Humane Society on September 24th from 11am-2pm and start your fostering journey today! You’ll go home with all the supplies you need and find a foster dog that’s the doggone right match!
HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Maui Humane Society is asking people to stop bringing in strays and surrenders as they experience overcapacity. The shelter is currently caring for 67 dogs (not including the 32 animals in foster homes) when their kennels can only hold 40 dogs. “We are full and overcapacity. We need the community to understand that the shelter should be the last option for the animal,” said Katie Shannon, Director of Marketing at MHS, in a statement.
Maui Humane Society has issued an urgent request to the community for help in providing homes and relief for dogs from its shelter, which is currently over capacity. The Maui Humane Society has kennel capacity for 40 dogs, but the shelter is currently caring for 67, not including the 32 currently in foster homes.
Maui Humane Society is urgently requesting the community’s help to provide homes and relief for dogs. Due to high surrender and stray intake rates, the shelter population has experienced a massive surge, resulting in kennels being over capacity.

Have you ever thought about fostering but didn’t think it was for you? Maui Humane Society is hosting a Foster Open House at 11:30am on both June 25th and 26th to tell you all about how fostering saves lives! By offering your time, energy, love and home to an animal in need, you help prepare them for adoption into a permanent home, as well as creating valuable space in the shelter to accommodate other homeless animals. Fostering may be needed anywhere from a few days to a few months! Join us on June 25 and 26th and you could start your fostering journey that day!
Maui Humane Society is teaming up with national nonprofit Petco Love and Skechers to focus on the fun in fostering pets, which is lifesaving and especially critical during the busy summer months. Fostering is free, and it can begin on the same day. Maui Humane Society is participating in the nationwide Foster Open House:
June 25, 11:30 a.m.: For those interested in fostering dogs, puppies or Wings of Aloha fosters. Wings of Aloha is a donation-funded program that takes shelter animals and flies them to the mainland United States for adoption.
June 26, 11:30 a.m.: For those interested in fostering cats, kittens or critters (bunnies and guinea pigs)
Maui Humane Society will also join shelters nationwide for the National Foster Pet Open House event by inviting the public to visit the shelter on Saturday, June 25 and 26 at 11:30 a.m. for an interactive foster meet-and-greet party for two-and four-legged friends. Those who attend will learn about the types of fostering available (long term, short term, emergency), meet available foster dogs, cats, kittens and critters, and can leave with a foster animal that day.
