The Maui Humane Society is participating in the BISSELL Pet Foundation Summer 2021 ‘Empty the Shelters’ Adoption Event, offering reduced adoption fees ranging from $ 0 to $ 25 per pet from July 7-10.
During these dates, the adoption fee for a dog (excluding puppies and kokua dogs) is $ 25, and cats, kittens and critters are “per donation – you decide,” says the Maui Humane Society.
The Maui Humane Society had announced it was at critical capacity in June, with nearly 400 animals in need of adoption, as the number of those who have come and found stray on Maui has “multiplied exponentially. Over the course of a month, according to The Maui Humane Company.
“The kennels are full, with several dogs sharing a space intended for a single dog. With the heat of summer and fewer opportunities for dogs to walk due to voluntary restrictions related to COVID, the Maui Humane Society expresses an urgent need to adopt these animals, ”they said in an announcement from the organization.
