If you're a dog lover and ever find yourself on Maui looking for a fun way to spend a day, look into the Beach Buddies Visitors Program at the Maui Humane Society.
This awesome program helps raise awareness about dogs that are looking for their furever homes as well as gives the pups a break from the shelter environment for a few hours. It's very popular so make sure to register early! We booked our date as soon as we booked our trip :)
Our dog for the day was Hooch. He loves car rides and has the best smile ever! We took him to the Makawao Forest Reserve for a short hike on the shady trails and then to Kamaole Beach III for some chill time. He was a little unsure about new environments and was happiest riding in the car with his head out the window the whole way lol! I'm sure with more frequent outings, he'd be happy to go anywhere with his #hoomans.
If you're looking for some love in your life, Hooch is your guy. He gives lots of kisses and is happy to tuck in right next to you for snuggles whenever he gets a chance. Find a shady spot, throw down a towel next to him and he's one happy boy.
Of course I couldn't leave without a few keepsakes from our experience. I got a hoodie, a tee and some stickers, all for a good cause. You can check out their shop here.
