If you are coming from Kahului, on the Mokolele Highway, then just before you get into Kihei on your right is The Maui Humane Society Maui.
The Maui Humane Society Maui is open to the public from 11am to 4pm and is a fun place to bring the kids to see and interact with the animals. There are rooms where you can go in and hold the kittens and an outside courtyard surrounded by the kennels where the dogs are kept.
If you want to get organized with a few friends you can request a guided group tour of the shelter for any age group. A Maui Humane Society representative will introduce the group to their mascot Freddie the tortoise, and give your little ones a tour of their Cat Ohana, Critter Corner and Dog Kennels while providing information about animal welfare, sheltering and the history of the agency along the way.
Booking a Shelter Tour: To book a shelter tour, educators must first submit a Shelter Tour Request Form. Because of space restrictions, tour groups are limited to a maximum of 12 students and 2 chaperones per tour (larger groups may be split into smaller units/ time-blocked). Groups of students under age 7 must be accompanied by one chaperone per 6 students. Group shelter tours must be booked at least one week in advance of the proposed date. The educator must also submit completed Parent Authorization Forms for each child to the tour guide prior to the start of the tour.
Shelter Tour Guidelines
We highly suggest that educators share the Shelter Tour Guidelines with their group prior to arriving at the shelter. These guidelines apply to all ages, but it is particularly important to share with our younger students.
FYI: They do prefer visitors to have closed toe shoes.
