“It is going to be raining cats and dogs here on Maui and unfortunately the shelter really is affected by rain and wind,” said Katie Shannon, Maui Humane Society marketing director. “And so we have put boards up on our kennels already to prepare, to ensure the dogs are going to be dry,” Shannon said.
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.
