Maui Humane Society is urgently seeking the community’s help in providing temporary homes for dogs.
The shelter currently has 105 dogs in their care, with kennel capacity for 40 dogs.
Dogs are being paired in kennels to make additional space. With the high population, the shelter has enacted “SOS Foster” which asks anyone to help foster an animal. No previous experience is needed and necessary supplies are provided for free. There is no obligation to adopt through the program and the amount of foster time is dependent on a person’s schedule. To help address the overpopulation issue, Maui Humane Society will be open until 7 p.m. on Feb. 17 to offer the community more opportunity to see and visit the animals for adoption and foster.
All adoptions will be sponsored by Petco Love and there will be Valentine’s Day theme activities, including a puppy kissing booth. Dogs available for “SOS Foster” can be viewed at www.mauihumanesociety.org/pet-adoption/pets-for-adoption.The shelter is located off of Maui Veterans Highway and is open from 11 a.m. 5 p.m.
