Humane Society needs foster homes

Crowded conditions at the Maui Humane Society’s Puunene shelter have prompted a request for immediate short-term foster homes for dogs, the agency announced Wednesday.

“With dogs coming in almost daily, the kennels are starting to get uncomfortably crowded,” the society said.

The agency will provide all supplies and information needed to become a foster home to a shelter dog.

For more information, send email to or call 877-3680, ext. 3. Visiting hours at the shelter are from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
