Collaboration with Existing Shelters on the Island
In addition to operating its in-house program Maui Cat Rescue will seek out opportunities to collaborate with existing shelters on the Island to fulfill our mission of raising awareness and providing humane treatment for cats. This will include supporting existing spay and neuter programs with resources and donations, contributing to necessary veterinary care for shelters, and increasing the capacity of existing shelters to foster cats.
Maui Cat Rescue anticipates that it may have funds in excess of the costs of its in-house fostering and adoption programs and hands-on collaboration with other shelters. Such funds will be used first to expand the capacity and resources available to its fostering and adoption program at the Cat cafe, and secondly to further the mission of humane and caring solutions for Maui’s feral cat population in the form of grants and distributions to support existing shelters. The purpose of any such grants would be increasing their capacity and the ability to provide high-quality veterinary care, and subsidizing fostering operations through the island. Distributions and grants will be exclusively for these charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and will not be used for personal gains of any sort.
