Maui Humane Society Reduces Adoption Fees as It Participates Nationwide “Empty the Shelters” campaign starting today through July 31, the shelter announced.
BISSELL Pet Foundation is partnering with MetLife Pet Insurance for the National Low Fee Adoption Event, which will feature more than 335 shelters in 44 states with pets available for adoption for just $50 or less, according to a release from joint press of the Maui Humane Society and BISSELL Pet Foundation.
The Maui Humane Society’s reduced adoption rates during the campaign will include $50 for adult dogs and kittens; $25 for small animals, including guinea pigs and rabbits; and $10 for adult cats. Animals available for adoption can be viewed at mauihumanesociety.org/. If a blue banner indicating “adoptive family” is reflected in the photo of the animal, an appointment is necessary to visit the animal. To make an appointment, call (808) 877-3680, ext. 3, during the new opening days of the refuge from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Tuesday to Sunday.
The humane society has made urgent calls in recent months for the adoption or fostering of animals, as extreme overcrowding at the shelter puts some animals at risk of euthanasia. Each day, the shelter receives an average of four to five stray animals, the humane society said in May.
Prospective adoptive owners are encouraged to research the animal they wish to adopt, as well as the terms of adoption.
From the BISSELL Pet Foundation “Empty the Shelters” efforts began in 2016, when nearly 158,000 pets at 669 animal welfare organizations in 49 states and Canada were shot in a home again, according to the news release. On average, 1,200 shelter animals are adopted each day at each quarterly national event.
