We’ve all seen the devastation on Maui this week resulting from out-of-control wildfires exacerbated by Hurricane Dora. And the question on all our minds has been: How can we help? Though we may be on O‘ahu, we can still support the people of Maui during their time of need.

Foster or Adopt Cats

The Maui Humane Society has its hands full trying to care for all the homeless animals and help lost pets get back to their families. Lucky Paws Animal Foundation on O‘ahu is preparing to help by taking in cats from Maui, but first, they need to make more space in their facilities. If you or someone you know can help foster or adopt the cats currently housed at Lucky Paws, you can make a difference for them and the cats on Maui. Please help spread the word.
