New digs for the dogs

Maui Humane Society facilities supervisor Noe Carson grinds the stub of a metal fence pipe Friday morning while preparing for the installation of new dog kennels at the Puunene shelter. Carson said the pipes had to be smoothed flat and filled with concrete before new stainless steel kennels can be installed. The work on the kennels is expected to be completed Aug. 22, and until then, dog adoptions, turning in of strays and surrenders of dogs will be by appointment and during regular Humane Society hours. Call 877-3680, ext. 3 to discuss dealing with strays and surrenders. For dog adoptions, go to the Humane Society website at to see all of the adoptable dogs. For an adoption, call the shelter to set up a meet and greet.
