Sometimes the hardest part about traveling is missing your four-legged family back home. Pet-deprived travelers to Maui can take advantage of a program offered by the Maui Humane Society by volunteering at the twice-weekly “Helping Paws Visitor Volunteer Program.”
The 60-year-old Maui Humane Society (MHS) is a private, non-profit organization and the oldest and largest animal welfare agency on the island. As the only agency on Maui that accepts all domestic animals in need, MHS sees approximately 9,000 animals coming through its doors each year.
Now visitors can offer a “helping paw” to the homeless animals at the shelter every Wednesday and Thursday afternoon from 1 to 4 p.m., with such activities as walking dogs, bathing puppies, brushing cats, or playing with puppies and kittens—an important part of their socialization.
To sweeten the deal, Spa Grande at Grand Wailea is partnering with the Maui Humane Society to offer a special mahalo (thank you) to Maui visitors who participate in the shelter’s programs. Participating volunteers will receive a Pampered Paws certificate from Spa Grande, offering 15 percent off any regularly priced spa treatment as a thank you for their volunteer service. (Some restrictions may apply, and the 15% discount cannot be combined with any other offer.)
Named one of the “Top 10 Spas in the United States” by Condé Nast Traveler and Travel & Leisure magazines, Spa Grande is the largest spa facility in the state, featuring 40 treatment rooms in a luxurious 50,000 square-foot facility.
Voluntourism has never felt so good.
