The BISSELL Pet Foundation is hosting its “Empty the Shelters” event and the Maui Humane Society will be participating. This summer adoption event will start Monday, July 11 through Sunday, July 31. All adoptions are by donation only.
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.
The public is invited to the Maui Humane Society’s Annual Kitten Shower, Saturday, April 9, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is an in-person event, with a chance to meet kittens, watch live demos, and play games.
Join Maui Humane Society as we kick off kitten season with a kitten baby shower! Watch live demos of bottle baby feeding & handling, meet kittens of all ages and learn about their tiny worlds! The kittens will be helping to open their gifts from our Amazon Wishlist as we need more supplies that ever this season! Ask questions, learn how to become a foster and have fun with our kitten team!
One of the fastest ways to train an animal is with “clicker training.” This type of positive reinforcement training involves using a marker sound, in this case a “click,” to communicate that an animal is doing something you want her to do.
