What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Last year, Maui Humane Society accepted over 6,000 animals. We work to control pet overpopulation by offering low cost spay/neuter options to the community and through TNR of community cats. We encourage responsible pet ownership through humane enforcement, humane education programs, and community outreach. We save lives by offering sheltering both on-site and through our foster network and provide life-saving medical care to sick or injured animals. We transfer animals into adoption-guaranteed care and partner with local businesses and media outlets to increase exposure of adoptable animals. We increase adoptability for our shelter dogs through enrichment programs like Beach Buddies, Dog Playgroups and Walking, and Canine Good Citizen training.

The Wings of Aloha program was created to fly pets to the mainland where there are animal welfare partners and new owners waiting for Maui's homeless pets. Believe it or not there are animal welfare groups on the mainland who don't struggle with pet overpopulation or lack of adopters the way we do on Maui! The Wings of Aloha Program encourages a strong working partnership with these welfare groups, provides the highest standard for the health and safety of our shelter pets, and gives them the second chance at a long and cherished life that they truly deserve by transferring animals to adoption guaranteed rescues and shelters. Maui Humane Society is committed to saving more lives and can do so by relocating some of our animals to places where there is a higher demand for adoptable dogs and cats.

The Volunteer Program is absolutely vital to the success of Maui Humane Society. Working more than 19,000 hours in the last year, our volunteer team is exciting and thriving. We are extremely proud of the powerful difference our volunteers make, in our shelter, with our animals, and throughout the community.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Maui Humane Society's mission is “to protect and save the lives of Maui’s animals, accepting all in need, educating the community, and inspiring respect and compassion towards all animals”.

MHS provides year-round, no and low cost spay/neuter surgeries. Live Release Rates (the number of animals leaving the shelter alive, with a positive outcome) have dramatically increased thanks to expanded programs which promote adoptions, reunite lost pets with their owners, and relocate animals to adoption-guaranteed rescues and shelters both locally and on the Mainland. Programs to enrich the lives of shelter animals and to meet the needs of each individual animal by identifying and responding to behavioral and medical barriers that would prevent the animal from being adopted, have been newly instituted. The Humane Enforcement Department has been reorganized so that emphasis is on enforcement officers being a visible and action-oriented force, available 24/7, who enforce animal related laws, prevent animal cruelty and enhance animal care and safety by educating the community about animal needs. A facilities improvement program aimed at creating a safe and comfortable environment for animals and staff has transformed Maui Humane Society into a welcoming, family friendly place for people to visit, adopt, donate and volunteer.

Maui Humane Society partners with Maui’s public and private sector to provide services and to enhance community life. Partnerships include providing animal management services to the County of Maui, offering schools and community groups educational presentations for every age group on a wide variety of animal-related topics with the goal of providing Maui’s people with the information and resources needed to advocate compassion and respect for all living creatures and to become responsible pet owners, classroom presentations and shelter tours are available for all schools on the island. MHS also offers students the opportunity to fulfill community service hours and provides mentorship for school projects. Animal Camp, a program for grades 2-5, provides exposure to shelter animals, play activities and instruction on responsible pet ownership.

Maui Humane Society also cooperates with other animal advocacy groups, both local and national, partners with the Red Cross and County Civil Defense to provide pet friendly emergency shelters during natural disasters, and acts as veterinary inspectors for the State of Hawaii’s Quarantine Direct Release Program at Kahului Airport.

Maui Humane Society has assembled an exceptional staff passionately devoted to the MHS mission and have created an organizational culture that fosters collaboration, teamwork and problem-solving. This combination of dedicated staff, teamwork, and strategic vision has raised the bar and enabled the organization to save more animal lives than ever before by developing innovative programs to enhance the quality and availability of animal welfare services on Maui.

Maui Humane Society had a Live Release Rate (LRR) of 96% for dogs and 90% for cats in December 2018.

In FY18, over 6000 animals were spayed and neutered at Maui Humane Society - a record we are set to break in FY19.

Dog enrichment programs like playgroups, Beach Buddies and Canine Good Citizen's training ensure that shelter dogs are given every opportunity for a positive outcome.

Programs were implemented to manage community cats, including TNR, spay/neuter clinics and the hiring of a Community Cat Coordinator to work with colony managers to control the island's population and ensure the health and safety of community cats.

Maui Humane Society has also dramatically grown its volunteer foster network to increase life-saving capabilities.

More progress, including goals can be found in Maui Humane Society's annual report at mauihumanesociety.org
