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.
Meet the latest Hope Fund beneficiaries:
Tommy Boy was attacked by a machete in a parking lot in Paia. His bone-deep lacerations were across his forehead, across his back, and the tip of his tail. If Tommy Boy didn’t receive the immediate help from first-responders, our Humane Enforcement Officers and our on-call emergency Veterinarians, Tommy Boy would have knocked on death’s door. Thanks to our dedicated staff and volunteers to help him heal over the past 2 months, Tommy Boy has made a full recovery. Donate to help offset the cost of Tommy Boy’s medical expenses and care.

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.
