Maui Humane Society to participate in ASPCA Challenge

By Staff | Jun 24, 2010

PUUNENE — Maui Humane Society (MHS) was recently informed that it will be a participant in the Save More Lives-ASPCA $100K Challenge, competing for a $100,000 grant from the ASPCA. 

Only 50 animal rescue shelters were chosen from over 700 applicants nationwide.

“We are deeply honored and very excited to be a chosen participant in the challenge,” said Jocelyn Bouchard, CEO of MHS.     

“This is a wonderful opportunity to really show our community what we’re all about and get more animals into loving forever-homes.” 

The ASPCA Challenge will take place during August, September and October and take into account any adoptions, pets returned to their owners and spayed/neutered feral cats returned to managed feral cat colonies. 

Maui Humane Society reported that in order to win this challenge, the organization will need the entire community’s support. 

MHS hopes that programs and promotions in the works and those resulting from the challenge will continue to help save more lives for years to come.  The shelter has many adoption events and other fun things planned to be announced over the coming months.
