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.
HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Maui Humane Society is asking people to stop bringing in strays and surrenders as they experience overcapacity. The shelter is currently caring for 67 dogs (not including the 32 animals in foster homes) when their kennels can only hold 40 dogs. “We are full and overcapacity. We need the community to understand that the shelter should be the last option for the animal,” said Katie Shannon, Director of Marketing at MHS, in a statement.
