Pet of the Week

Do you have room in your heart and your home to help a quiet cutie start this New Year off right? Then I’m just the chill little dude for you. My name is Makani, and I’m a very polite 7-year-old, 30-pound neutered senior that really just wants someone to love me.

I can seem a bit down in the dumps in my kennel, but take me out, give me a few tasty treats and watch that pep in my step and my eyes light right up. I was on my own for quite a while before I came to the shelter on Nov. 30. My owner had moved away and left me behind to fend for myself until someone noticed and called Maui Humane Society for help.

Now that I’ve gotten the care that I needed, I’m really ready for some cuddles too. Basically, the only thing I really need to have the best year ever is you.
