Hawaiian Airlines continues to open the bellies of its aircraft to assist organizations embarking on heroic relief efforts – including Maui Humane Society, which has worked around the clock to save the lives of animals and pets injured, lost or displaced during the West Maui wildfires.
Since the fires erupted last week, Hawaiian has carried over 200 donated kennels to Kahului, including a shipment of over 100 crates for Island Pet Movers to assist Maui Humane Society with moving pets off the island.
Maui Humane Society remains focused on meeting the West Maui community’s extensive need for emergency supplies and response, including life-saving veterinary and pet reunification services, and helping pets remain under the care of their owners. They are also equipping West Maui residents who are trying to relocate their pets with airline-approved kennels and travel health certifications at no additional cost.
“We are willing to help and provide whatever West Maui pet owners need right now, especially if they're flying off the island,” said Katie Shannon, director of marketing and communications at Maui Humane Society.
“It’s admirable that, despite the heartbreak and urgency that Maui Humane Society continues to face, it remains steadfast in doing everything it can to save animal lives,” said Patrick Rosa, managing director of cargo at Hawaiian Airlines. “We’ll continue to prioritize cargo space for the movement of critical supplies, including kennels, and support the heroes caring for and saving Valley Isle pets during this tragedy.”
