Community of Hotel Cats Saved!

When we found out earlier this week that a hotel in Hawaii was planning on trapping and relocating (or worse, possibly killing), a small community cat colony of 17 cats on its grounds, we got to work!

We immediately posted on social media asking supporters to call and ask the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa to humanely trap-neuter-return (TNR) the cats rather than relocate or kill them. You really came through with your phone calls and by reporting back what you were being told on our post!

We kept in contact with staff at the Hyatt and just four days after learning of the plan to remove the cats we found out that the hotel is now working on a plan to TNR the cats with the assistance of the Maui Humane Society. Kayla Haggarty, Feral Animal Specialist with Maui Humane confirmed the plan for us.

We are thrilled that these cats have been saved and will receive the spay/neuter surgeries and vet care they need to stay in their home. Thank you to all our supporters and the folks on the ground in Hawaii who made this happen. Thank you also to the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa for doing the right thing and coexisting with these cats!

Cats are still under attack in Hawaii. If you are a Hawaii resident, and you haven't already signed the alert we sent out earlier this week, please take action to protect them here.
