HONOLULU (KITV4) — Shelters across the state and the nation are urgently looking for foster homes to help with overcrowding in their facilities. Maui Humane Society says it is also in a similar crisis, with over 130 dogs in care and only 40 kennels. For the first time in years, it too may have to euthanize animals due to extreme overcrowding.

The Maui Humane Society felt the flood on Saturday as well. Officials said all the animals are safe, but the rain does cause concern for stress. “Boards are put up on all of the kennels, protecting the dogs from the rain; but with every kennel currently being full as we have over 100 dogs in our care, it’s not an enjoyable environment for them,” said MHS marketing director Katie Shannon.
Maui Humane Society is urgently requesting the community’s help to provide homes and relief for dogs as its shelter population has surged. High surrender and stay intake rates have led to kennels being over capacity, the shelter said in a news release Thursday.
