Maui Humane Society recently received a $135,000 grant from PetSmart Charities, to help continue to fuel its spay and neuter efforts on Maui. A total of 21,782 animals have benefited from the Maui Humane Society Spay/Neuter program since 2016.
Humane Society executives say the funds will enable them to continue to offer subsidized low cost spay and neuter services to Maui County residents for their animals.
“We’re very grateful for the generous grant from PetSmart Charities,” said Jerleen Bryant, CEO, Maui Humane Society. “This grant will allow us to continue our work to decrease the number of homeless animals on Maui through our aggressive spay and neuter efforts.”
PetSmart Charities is the leading funder of animal welfare in North America and aims to proactively prevent pet homelessness. Since 1994, the organization has granted more than $100 million to support spay and neuter efforts across the United States.
“Maui Humane Society is a trusted community partner and continues to make tremendous strides in making spay/neuter services accessible,” said Deborah Turcott, acting president of PetSmart Charities. “We are proud to continue supporting this important work and look forward to seeing the positive impact it has on Maui’s pet population.”
