In order to make additional space, dogs have been paired in kennels but you can lend a helping hand through the SOS Foster program.
SOS Foster allows anyone in the community to foster an animal free of charge. Necessary supplies will be provided and how long the animal stays in your home is up to your schedule.
To offer the community more opportunities to meet their animals, the Maui Humane Society will be open until 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 17.
