From May 1 to May 15, BISSELL Pet Foundation’s Spring National “Empty the Shelters” will take place at more than 350 shelters in 45 states with pets available for adoption for just $50 or less, including Maui Humane Society. Maui Humane Society will participate May 1–15, 2023, offering $0 adoption fees for dogs over 6 months, cats, all small animals, and a reduced adoption fee of $25 for all kittens. All interested adopters can find all adoptable animals at https://www.mauihumanesociety.org/pet-adoption/pets-for-adoption/.
The Shops at Wailea hosts their monthly concert series, Ke Kani Hone O Wailea, headlined by multi Nā Hōkū Hanohano award-winner, Paula Fuga on Friday, March 31, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. At the concert, residents and visiting patrons will have the opportunity to interact with the Maui Humane Society, make a donation and even adopt a pet.
The Maui Humane Society is urgently requesting the community’s help to provide temporary homes for dogs that are currently housed at the shelter. Maui Humane Society currently has 105 dogs in their care–that’s well beyond the kennel capacity of 40 dogs at the facility. Dogs are being paired in kennels to make additional space.
The public is invited to make a positive impact on Maui’s animal community by becoming a “Foster for the Holidays.” The program, which runs through Jan. 2, 2023, provides a temporary warm, cozy, and safe environment for a pet in need during the holiday season.
Maui Humane Society is announcing their $10,000 match campaign starting on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2022. Giving Tuesday is an annual celebration, occurring Tuesday after Thanksgiving annually, dedicated to nonprofits around the world. Friends of Maui Humane Society, Mason and Trudy Williams have offered a $10,000 matching donation throughout the month of December, starting on Giving Tuesday. “Your donation will go twice as far, saving twice the lives of Maui’s homeless animals,” said MHS representatives.
Maui Humane Society is expanding operating hours and opening its doors to the public for adoptions after being appointment-only since the pandemic began.
No appointments are needed and adoption fees for the upcoming event are waived, courtesy of the Dave and Cheryl Duffield Foundation. The list of animals up for adoption includes: dogs, cats, kittens, ducks, bunnies and guinea pigs.
On-call veterinarian Dr. Jennifer Fitzpatrick rushed to the shelter to assess the situation and provide the dog with pain medications, antibiotics and wound treatment. Her jaw was supported as x-rays were ordered.
