Maui Humane Society says its animals are safe but needs to free up space to take in more displaced pets.

  • Volunteer opportunities - whether you are a resident or visitor, there are many ways you can give back. See volunteer opportunities below.
  • Drop off pet supplies to displaced families who still have their animals
  • Donate money to help the shelter meet an increase in demand for care
  • Report a lost or found pet here.
  • Call (808) 877-3680 for more information or visit their website.

Opportunities for 'Drop in Volunteers'

  • Take a pup out for the afternoon to give them a break from the loud and crowded shelter while also getting them seen by potential adopters and fosters!
  • Dog on Demand
  • Prepare enrichment items to be handed out to our cats, dogs, rabbits, and guinea pigs!
  • Most projects can be taken home to complete and brought back the next day.
  • Many projects are kid and group-friendly!
  • Pet supply distribution at the Hyatt for displaced Lahaina residents and their furbabies!
  • Drop by the shelter 7 days a week from 11-4 to assist with regular shelter duties like laundry, dishes, cleaning and feeding!

Opportunities for Maui Residents

  • Sign up for an in-person orientation to work with cats, bunnies & guinea pigs (Cat & Critter Training, age 5+ with an adult) or shelter doggies (Dog Concierge, 16+). After your orientation, you can come by to volunteer 7 days a week from 8am-5pm, no sign-up necessary! You can then also participate in outreach events and many other volunteer opportunities as well!


When you foster any animal with us, you can have them for 1 night or 1 year, up to you! We supply everything for the animal (food, medicine, supplies) for the duration of your time with them. All that we ask is that you open your heart and home. Fill out a foster application here.

or come by the shelter and pick out an animal to take home immediately while we are in SOS. If you already have a dog, bring them with you to see if they are compatible with the dog you would like to foster!


We always welcome to keep our hubs in Lahaina filled are:

  • 💩 bags
  • Benebones, nylabones, tough toys for doggies
  • Cat scratchers/cat toys
  • Dry cat/dog/puppy food
  • Flea and tick for cats and medium sized dogs
