Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Maui
Vision and Mission: No More Homeless Pets
The mission of SPCA Maui is to create a “no more homeless pets” Maui and stop the killing of companion animals as a means of population control.
A terrible virus, previously not in the Islands, has sadly appeared on Maui. Feline Panleukopenia,
similar to Parvo in dogs, can sicken and kill all cats that come in contact with it.
FP virus can linger in the environment and can even be transferred from you to cats.
All cats that go outside, pets and colony cats, need to be vaccinated for this virus!
Ask your vet for the vaccination or SPCA will be offering vaccination clinics in the coming weeks to help prevent an epidemic!
Check back for future dates of these clinics.
This is extremely important. Please share this information with everyone you know.
We can save them, but it is up to you to help!
The Maui Challenge
- Per capita, Maui has almost 4X more animals entering our County sponsored shelter annually, than the national average.
- Our County shelter eliminates 81% of all cats and 51% of all dogs who enter it’s doors due to lack of space. In the past 5 years, this has totaled over 30,000 animals. This does not even begin to take into consideration those homeless who are roaming our forests, fields and beaches.
- Our rural island communities make up almost 2/3 of our island people and pet populations. Here, there are critical voids in spay/neuter education, financial challenges and often a total lack of veterinary services available. Kittens and puppies being born daily is out of control.
How We CAN FIX our pet overpopulation
A 2008 statement from the American Veterinary Medical Association states that “Sterilization is the best antidote to the mass euthanasia of cats and dogs resulting from overpopulation.” Shelter models deal with the problem by eliminating animals they cannot adopt out. Our prevention model addresses the cause of the problem at the source. Stop uncontrolled breeding and homeless pets with spay/neuter.
