Maui Humane Society awarded Community-Focused Programs Grant from the Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation
Maui Humane Society has been awarded new funding to implement community-focused programs and services made possible by the generosity of the Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation, a private charitable foundation based in Incline Village, Nevada. The grant will be distributed over a three year term with the intent to increase life saving efforts and expand resources beyond the shelter to reach at-risk pets throughout the island. Funding highlights include the purchase of a specialized truck and trailer to provide veterinary community outreach, hiring an additional veterinarian and support team, an expanded Foster department, an educational Humane Enforcement Resource Officer, expanded Wings of Aloha program to support inter-island transfers and further development of pet owner resources to help keep animals in their homes.
Foster Open House
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!
