The Maui Humane Society is seeking volunteers to assist at its upcoming Mobile Animal Surgical Hospital spay and neuter clinic for dogs, scheduled to take place Tuesday, March 8 to Saturday, March 12, 2016.
The organization is especially in need of volunteers with medical experience to assist with post-op recovery of dogs on Tuesday, March 8, Friday March 11 and Saturday March 12.
There are other positions available for registration/greeters, instrument cleaners and event set-up/break down. Those interested in helping can contact the Maui Humane Society at [email protected] or call (808) 877-3680 ext. 224.
Organization representatives say they hope to spay and neuter more than 300 Maui dogs in four days at the free MASH clinics.
Since April of 2015, seven MASH clinics have been held at the Maui Humane Society and over 2,900 animals have been spayed and neutered at no charge to the members of the community.
Last month alone, the Maui Humane Society spayed and neutered 714 animals in four days during its February clinic. “This ambitious endeavor would not be possible without the dedication, passion, and hard work of our staff and especially, our volunteers,” said Nancy Willis, Director of Development and Community Outreach at the Maui Humane Society.
MHS is Maui’s only animal shelter and the single open admission organization, accepting all in need, seven days a week. The private, nonprofit organization has a county animal management contract, which includes humane enforcement.
MHS offers many services to the public, including but not limited to: stray and owner surrender intake, lost and found services, adoptions, outreach and education, a mainland transfer program, agility classes, and volunteer opportunities.
