About Us

Dreaming of a brighter future...

Save Maui Cats is a volunteer based, non-profit rescue, dedicated to the island's homeless, hungry and forgotten cats.

It's hard to imagine that a paradise as beautiful as Maui has thousands of starving and neglected cats and kittens struggling to survive in its jungles and beaches, on its streets and in its neighborhoods. Sadly, most kittens don't survive their first year.  But Save Maui Cats is here to help!

Follow Michael Willinsky as he endeavors to feed 300 cats in this  SHORT VIDEO! 

We provide food and water to hundreds of grateful cats every day while helping to trap, transport, spay, neuter and vaccinate hundreds more. We are actively decreasing the number of homeless cats on Maui, by:

  • Setting up and managing healthy Community Colonies by promoting TNRM (Trap, Neuter, Return, Manage) 
  •  Adopting out friendly, fixed cats 
  • Educating local residents and engaging in community participation

Just this year alone, we've trapped and helped fix over 200 of the island's homeless cats. These are the lucky ones who, while still living on the streets, have a committed volunteer who brings them food and fresh water every day. These cats have a chance at life without burdening the community with more unwanted kittens. To donate cat food, flea medicine and other contributions, please visit More Ways To Give.


There are tens of thousands of cats and kittens on this island that still need to be fixed - and who are counting on us for their survival. Although we are a small group of volunteers, we are dedicated and strong. And we are making a big difference.

We're proud of our accomplishments but we need your help! 

Supporting Save Maui Cats' efforts will help put an end to Maui's cat overpopulation, ensuring a brighter future for everyone.

All donations are tax deductible.

What we do...

We help the starving and neglected cats of Maui by getting them fixed and keeping them fed.

TNRM, otherwise known as  'Trap-Neuter-Return-Manage' is the only humane, effective approach for homeless cats. A group of healthy, fixed cats living harmoniously together is known as a "colony." Colony cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and eartipped (the universal symbol of a fixed and vaccinated cat), and then returned to their outdoor home where a caretaker provides regular food, water and shelter. Socialized cats and kittens are adopted into homes. 

As a result, the colony’s population stabilizes—no more unwanted kittens! Trap-Neuter-Return-Manage improves their lives and their relationship with the community: behaviors and stresses associated with mating stop.

What a great feeling it is to feed a hungry cat. Their sincere appreciation and gratitude can help us to feel a little bit better about our place in the world.  But what if we take that one step further?  If we were to get those same cats spayed and neutered, it would significantly reduce cat overpopulation in our neighborhoods. The few, happy, well fed fixed cats would be able to live out their lives peacefully without burdening the community with litters of unwanted kittens. 


We're here to help. Contact us if you'd like assistance with humane  trapping and no-cost spay and neuter services. We can also help you set  up a shelter and feeding station for the grateful cats in your  neighborhood!


Available some evenings?


Help us feed a colony of cats near you! Bringing food and water to some very grateful kitties will only take a few minutes in the evening. We can even provide the food! Or if you prefer, you can always help us trap homeless cats so they can get fixed. It's humane, good for everyone, and we'll teach you how.

Prefer mornings and afternoons?


Help Save Maui Cats by picking up cat food (at Costco) or transporting groggy cats (in carriers) to their temporary recovery rooms.

Weekends rock!
