About Maui Humane Society’s Hope Fund

Maui Humane Society’s Hope Fund is 100% donor-funded and allows us to go above and beyond what is typically affordable to provide treatment and life-saving surgeries to homeless pets with pre-existing conditions. Donations from the Hope Fund have been used to pay for everything from heart worm treatments to amputations that greatly increase an animal’s quality of life.

The Hope Fund was started in 2010 in honor of a shelter dog named Hope, who entered our shelter with an untreated injury that had become life-threatening. The fund continues to be used today to treat a variety of ailments and provide a second chance to the homeless pets who deserve it most.

Oscar the Cat Gets a Chance to Beat Cancer

Oscar the Cat Gets a Chance to Beat Cancer

Oscar the Cat came to us when his caretaker had to move and there was no one left to care for him. He had some growths on his nose that turned out to be cancerous – common with cats who spend a lot of time in the sun.

Kali was wandering around the highway and was struck by a car. A Good Samaritan saw it all happen, stopped traffic, scooped her up and brought her to MHS for help. X-rays have revealed that her hip is badly dislocated, and because of age-related arthritis she will need surgery to reduce her pain and improve her quality of life.

These two adorable kittens were found in the parking lot of Longs in Kihei in March. They had almost been hit by cars, but were saved by a kind member of the public who dropped them off at Maui Humane Society. At the time, we had no idea the battle they were about to face...

While they appeared healthy on intake, it was later determined that they had ringworm. In some shelters, ringworm is a means for euthanasia, but at Maui Humane Society, we do whatever it takes to keep our animals alive and healthy! They underwent treatment for 7 months, but were struggling to get healthy. Their tests kept coming back positive, and we were worried they were resistant to treatment, which would have meant we would not be able to make them available for adoption in the unhealthy state they were in.

Many of our staff and volunteers were invested in Trixie and Katya and took them home to foster them, give them meds, and do all that they could to get them healthy. Finally, it worked. Their third test came back NEGATIVE! Thanks to our Hope Fund, Foster Ohanas and generous donors, we were able to treat them for that entire period of time and help them make a miraculous recovery. And now, we are beyond excited to share that Trixie and Katya were recently ADOPTED!

If you'd like to make an unforgettable impact on an animal and help save its life, please consider joining our Foster Team, making a general donation or donating to our Hope Fund! Mahalo for your support in saving animals like Trixie and Katya and giving them hope for a wonderful life. ❤️
