Maui Humane Society is urgently requesting the community’s help to provide homes and relief for dogs. Due to high surrender and stray intake rates, the shelter population has experienced a massive surge, resulting in kennels being over capacity. Maui Humane Society has kennel capacity for 40 dogs; the shelter is currently caring for 67, not including the 32 currently in foster homes.
A substantial surrender increase in the number of guinea pigs and rabbits has been received over the past four weeks by the Maui Humane Society. The nonprofit organization reports it’s “unlike anything they have seen before.”
Maui Humane Society is partnering with Greater Good Charities’ Good Fix program to provide free spay/neuter clinics in Hāna from June 9 through June 12. This partnership will allow upwards of 500 owned pets (dogs and cats) and free-roaming cats to be spayed or neutered to help effectively and humanely control the pet population over time.
With over 100 dogs and only 40 kennels, the Maui Humane Society (MHS) is in a crisis and needs your help to care for these animals. The shelter says it’s had an usually high number of dogs. Since so many of them share kennels, the dogs are also under a lot of stress.
Due to the high number of cats and dogs at the shelter, the Maui Humane Society is seeking temporary SOS foster homes for adult pets. There is no training necessary, being an SOS foster is a service for anyone who can take a dog or a cat into their home for a minimum of three days or up to two weeks (preferably).
