1 Maui Humane Society The Maui Humane Society s mission is to save the lives of unwanted pets on the island of Maui, accepting all in need of shelter and working to humanely reduce the homeless pet population; to advocate for animals, rescue and protect them from suffering, and promote responsible and caring treatment; and to educate our community, inspiring respect and compassion towards all animals.

2 A Message from our Board Chair It is my privilege to welcome you to the Maui Humane Society Annual Report. MHS is a private, nonprofit organization and is the only open admission animal shelter on Maui. We depend on your donations and support to fund our programs and activities all of which are dedicated to saving animal lives, providing care and shelter for the homeless animals of Maui, and building lifelong bonds between people and animals through education, community outreach and the prevention of cruelty. This has been a particularly exciting year for us since we have welcomed our new CEO, Jerleen Bryant, who has an impressive background in the field of animal advocacy. Jerleen, along with our outstanding staff and dedicated Board of Directors, are embarking on what we feel will be a new chapter in the Maui Humane Society s long history of serving the community of Maui both animal and human. We are proud of our existing programs which include sheltering homeless animals; providing low cost spay-neuter; promoting pet adoptions and helping lost animals find their way home; providing humane education; reaching out to visitors with our Helping Paws Visitor Volunteer Program; impacting and educating Maui youth through Animal Camp programs; supporting trap-neuter-return-manage efforts; the Wings of Aloha program, whereby homeless pets from Maui are flown to welcoming Mainland partners who are just waiting to give these deserving animals new forever homes, thereby saving numerous lives. All of these wonderful MHS programs are funded through private donations, grants and fundraising so involvement and contributions from the community are essential in enabling these efforts to go forward. In the coming year we are hoping to expand and refine our programs so that we can save even more lives. We welcome the new spirit of cooperation on Maui which is resulting in improved care for homeless animals. We are proud of our 29 year partnership with the County which has enabled MHS to serve the people of Maui by providing animal management services for the County. These services include humanely enforcing animal related laws in order to prevent animal cruelty and enhance animal care and safety. We also embrace the exemplary efforts of the many dedicated animal advocacy groups on Maui since we know that it takes a village to achieve the goals we all strive for. As stated in the MHS Vision, we look forward to the time when our community embraces the human-animal bond, no animals are homeless, and all are treated with care compassion, and respect. We know that all of us working together will someday make that vision a reality. We thank you for your support of MHS s efforts to rescue, protect and advocate for Maui s homeless, abandoned and abused animals. As always we welcome your questions, comments and ideas. Feel free to the Board of Directors at Mahalo Judith Aikawa, MD, Chairperson Maui Humane Society Board of Directors Page 2

3 A Message from our CEO Fiscal year 14 has been a year of many changes for MHS. In the 63 years since MHS was founded, one thing has always been true; we're here to help save the lives of unwanted pets on Maui. That represents the cornerstone of our existence and our passion for what we do. While we are continually challenged as the years go by, we remain committed to not only meeting those challenges, but to improve our ability to help animals in need. Over the past 12 months we have all seen and been part of the latest chapter in the decades long mission of MHS. While our role in the community and focus have not changed, we are on a path towards new relationships and better collaboration with all those on Maui advocating for animal welfare. This year there has been much attention on better defining the expectations within our organization. An emphasis toward improved customer service, better response time and communication from our humane enforcement department, increased medical services for sick or injured animals, expanded volunteer opportunities, an active transfer program which is vital to both our animals and our staff, and a more vigorous community outreach effort, has been at the forefront. Recently our board of directors and management team participated in a much anticipated strategic planning workshop. The result was clearly defined goals and priorities with a shared vision for what we want to create. This plan of action will help lead our organization to better fulfilling its mission moving forward. Many advances are being made in the animal welfare sector, and as CEO of this agency, I am committed to successfully positioning Maui Humane Society as a thriving resource for the people and animals on Maui, working diligently to help educate our community and reduce the number of unwanted pets being born through an expanded spay and neuter program. While change can sometimes be difficult, our future is bright. Together we will strive for the day when every animal that comes through our doors finds a loving home of their own. From our staff, to our volunteers, our supporters, and our board of directors, I see an unwavering commitment and dedication to the animals in desperate need. I am honored to be a part of what we represent and very much look forward to our future. With much aloha, Jerleen Bryant, CEO Page 3

4 Humane Enforcement This year, the Humane Enforcement Department responded to almost 9,500 calls related to animals. These calls came in on topics ranging from loose dogs to concerns about care and possible cruelty to animals. The graphs below are a breakdown of the types of citations our officers issued as well as the different types of calls that were responded to during FY 2013/2014. Whenever possible, we try to work with and educate people to not only resolve existing issues, but prevent future problems by creating more educated and responsible pet care practices. If you have an animal related problem or concern, please call us at x29 to make a report today. Page 4

5 Development & Community Outreach This year we stepped up our social media and outreach efforts and actively maintained a presence on such venues as Facebook, twitter, and instagram, we also maintained a consistent presence in the community through adoption events and community fundraisers. We also publish weekly e- newsletters and have completely revamped our website. We focused on creating events that brought our adoptable pets into the community with canine outings and adoption events to help get them more exposure in hopes that they would find loving homes! Page 5

6 Sheltering Maui s Homeless Pets One day, we hope to see all pets in loving and lifelong homes. Until then, the Maui Humane Society performs a critical service to the community. We accept 100% of companion animals, regardless of age, breed, health or temperament. Last year resulted in an average of 23 animals a day coming through our doors in need of shelter. Below, is a graph of our live animal intake for FY 2013/2014. Although spay/neuter is still a critical component in preventing unwanted pets, the larger percentage of adult pets being surrendered indicates that the disposable pet 23 Animals Per Day, 365 Days a Year. This is the amount of animals brought through the doors of Maui Humane Society. syndrome is another issue we need to address. Pets are a lifetime commitment and depend on us! Call us if you need help before giving up on your pet. We just may be able to help you out so your family can stay together! Page 6

7 Live Release In the animal sheltering world, LIVE RELEASE is the goal for all of our animals. Sadly, euthanasia still exists not as a method or strategy for animal population control; but as a sad result when our shelter gets full but more animals still arrive needing help. Live release might mean reuniting a lost pet and its owner, adopting a pet into a (new) loving home or transferring a pet into another shelter that can guarantee adoption. Page 7

8 Veterinary Care & Spay/Neuter Last year our veterinary department spayed over 3,000 animals. These lifesaving surgeries are an essential part of controlling the pet population and preventing unwanted litters of puppies and kittens. Future spay/neuter efforts will focus on a strategic approach as we look at various geographic areas and other demographics in order to continue our efforts to decrease shelter intake and increase live outcomes for the unwanted pets on Maui. Our vet staff also provided medical care for the (over 9,000) animals that came through our doors last year. They also helped with airport release services enabling animals to fly direct to Maui without having to stop on Oahu for quarantine. Page 8

9 Volunteers What would we do without our awesome volunteers? Last year our volunteers donated over 16,339 hours of service assisting with everything from administrative work to adoptions to landscaping and facility repair. WOW! Our dog walking program took off with many thanks to another volunteer, Lisa Giesick,who provided training for volunteers (and staff) on basic handling and training for dogs. We adjusted some policies of our program including expanding hours, roles and responsibilities, in an attempt to make it easier and more convenient for people to volunteer their time. It seemed to work as volunteer recruitment, retention and overall hours are all up! Page 9

10 Revenues Last year we brought in $2,856,560 in revenue. The chart below shows the breakdown of the main revenue streams. Page 10

11 Expenses The Maui Humane had $2,454,508 in expenses last year and here is how it broke out in our audit: Page 11
