May is National Pet Month and the Maui Humane Society is partnering with BISSELL Pet foundation to “Empty the Shelters” by hosting their largest national adoption event. “Every day we are faced with a high population of animals, but the adoption needs of the shelter rotate on a day to-day basis,” stated Katie Shannon, Director of Marketing & Communications. “Across the country, adult dogs and cats (6 months plus) linger in shelters, including our own. As we dive further into spring, an increase of kittens, guinea pigs and bunnies are approaching. Whether you’re looking for a companion to be active or relax with you, Paws to Adopt will give you the opportunity to find your perfect match!” Maui Humane has also brought back what would be their second annual “Wags to Riches” event on May 28. Their “Wags to Riches” event gives shelter pets a chance to go from the doghouse to the penthouse.
