Group looks to make Maui a ‘No Kill’ community

August 1, 2013
Maui Weekly

"No Kill" is a proven means to save more healthy and treatable animals entering the shelter system. There are over 130 communities nationwide that have implemented "No Kill" and are saving over 90 percent of their cats, dogs and other companion animals. Places such as San Francisco, California; Reno, Nevada; and Austin, Texas are "No Kill." Of these, over 90 shelters are open admission.

Whereas no one, assumingly, wants to kill animals in the shelters, current practices at most Humane Societies are outdated, only saving around 50 percent of animals brought in. While most people look the other way--or don't want to think about what really goes on--there are ways to change and save more animals.

Save An is a group of individuals, animal welfare groups and tourists who believe it is time we stop ignoring this problem, getting rid of anything we don't want to deal with, and step up to the plate. If you have ever owned a cat or a dog, or just want to do the right thing, then you need to get involved.

We all need to take responsibility for what is going on around us. We need to implement truly humane animal control, addressing abandoned animals, feral cats, backyard breeders, etc., and it needs to happen now.

To become a "No Kill" community will take work, but we believe that Maui's residents and visitors are up to the task. We are asking everyone who cares about animals to get involved. Visit our website at and find a way YOU can help save an animal and help Maui become a real humane society.
