Our hearts go out to our friends in Hawaii. Thousands of people on Maui and the Big Island have been forced to evacuate, leaving their pets and belongings behind. Many residents have lost their homes, loved ones and jobs. While this is a familiar tale, people on the islands cannot easily relocate or commute further to access the resources that they need. The people of Hawaii need our help. We’ve compiled a list of organizations that are doing their utmost to help.
