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.
Come one, come all! Maui Humane Society invites you to our in-person Kitten Shower! Join us on April 9 as we kick off Kitten Season with a Kitten Shower! From 11am-1pm you can meet kittens of all ages, watch live demonstrations, and participate in kitten games! Our Foster team will teach you how to age kittens and what it looks like when they’re sick. Meet our experienced foster families and if you’re feline good, you can sign up to become a foster parent! Hope to see you at the paw-ty!
If you have been thinking of adopting a dog or cat, now is the time to go for it. Fostering is available as well. Maui Humane said there are no training or classes required right now.
Due to the high number of cats and dogs at the shelter, the Maui Humane Society is seeking temporary SOS foster homes for adult pets. There is no training necessary, being an SOS foster is a service for anyone who can take a dog or a cat into their home for a minimum of three days or up to two weeks (preferably).
The shelter is overcapacity due to the high surrender and stray intake rates that spiked because of the pandemic. There are currently more than 500 animals under the care of the Humane Society. That is 25% more compared to the same month last year.
The holidays are usually spent at home with family, and that includes four-legged family members. The Maui Humane Society (MHS) is looking for holiday heroes to foster a dog or cat this holiday season.
There is nothing better than sharing the holiday spirit with a furry companion. By helping us foster dogs & cats this holiday season, you’ll be their holiday hero!
