Animal shelters in Hawaii are in dire need of assistance as they care for pets affected by the wildfires that burned through parts of the island of Maui. The Maui Humane Society and the Hawaiian Humane Society are seeking to secure supplies and funding for the animals displaced by the wildfires. 

According to a Facebook post from The Maui Humane Society, the shelter was already over capacity before the fires and is now struggling to keep up with the influx of incoming pets. They are "running extremely low on space, supplies, and fosters" as they try to provide care to animals in need. 

The Maui Humane Society is urging animal lovers on the island of Maui to immediately foster pets in the shelter's care to help increase the space available to animals arriving at the nonprofit for care. If fostering is not an option, the organization encourages people to consider donating pet supplies and funds to help support their ongoing efforts. People living outside of Maui can also provide assistance by sending supplies to the shelter through its Amazon Wishlist and making donations to the Maui Humane Society on their website. In this time of crisis, the Maui Humane Society is rallying the community to work together and extend a helping hand and paw to those affected. 

Along with asking for help from the larger community, the Maui Humane Society also created a Facebook Group for the local community to get assistance. The Maui Fires Pets Help Group is a place for "individuals who are able to help to connect with those in need," according to the Maui Humane Society. 

As the people of Maui begin the arduous process of recovery and rebuilding, it is crucial that we come together as a community to provide assistance to those in need. Whether it be through fostering pets, donating supplies, or making a financial contribution, any help we can provide will go a long way in supporting the ongoing efforts of the Hawaiian Humane Society and the Maui Humane Society in caring for animals affected by these devastating wildfires.
