Maui Humane Society has been awarded a $100,000 Lifesaving Impact Award grant from the Petco Foundation.

The funds will be used to fund spay and neuter surgeries for owned animals and free roaming cats, advocate the Maui Humane Society’s ongoing efforts to reduce the animal homeless population, and aims to save as many animal lives as possible.

“We are very thankful to the Petco Foundation for believing in the work we are doing. Thanks to their generous support we can continue our campaign to decrease the number of free roaming cats on Maui and also to decrease the number of homeless animals coming through our door by offering spay and neuter surgeries at no cost through our community spay and neuter program,” said Jerleen Bryant, Maui Humane Society CEO.

“The Petco Foundation values animal welfare organizations working hard to save animal lives,” said Susanne Kogut, Petco Foundation executive director. “We hope this grant will enable the Maui Humane Society to continue its impactful and lifesaving efforts throughout Maui.”

Each year the Maui Humane Society takes in over 7,000 animals to its shelter and serves others through its community outreach programs. The organization also provides support for Maui’s approximately 90,000 pet owners as well as Animal Management Services for the County of Maui.


The 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.
