HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – With approximately 40,000 stray cats on Maui, a nonprofit rescue organization has launched a new program to find homes for cats in need.
The Save Maui Cats organization brought 10 kittens to their new adoptive homes in Washington State on Thursday as part of Operation Aloha Cat.

“Maui cat resources are limited and most are struggling to survive, but thanks to our pilot and volunteer, these lucky kittens are on their way to better lives,” the organization said.
Save Maui Cats will pay for additional veterinary exams, health certificates, vaccinations, neutering, and neutering, which cost between $ 100 and $ 150 per animal.
The group hopes to plan more flights every two weeks with around 20 cats on board.
