Have a Dog DayMaui

Missing your favorite four-legged friend back home? Check out MAUI HUMANE SOCIETY’S BEACH BUDDIES visitor program. Those wanting some canine companionship to explore Maui’s pet-friendly outdoor wonders can “check out” a shelter dog for the day. Maui Humane Society begins each outing with a brief talk about safety, what to do and where to go on the island. When you arrive at the shelter, a staff member greets you with your Beach Buddy backpack full of supplies and a freshly bathed dog who’s excited to explore Maui with you. Visitors can take Beach Buddies out every Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Pick up-hours are at 10 a.m., and be sure to sign up at least 48 hours in advance to get first pick of dogs available for that week’s outing. Dogs are available at a first-come, first-served basis. For more information and to book a Beach Buddy during your stay, visit mauihumanesociety.org or call (808) 877-3680.
