Save Maui Cats could not have launched our website, created our video or fed our island's hungry and forgotten cats without the additional help of these fine folks. They shared their extraordinary talent and their generous hearts. We are eternally grateful.
ASSERT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that responds to the immediate aftermath of natural disasters which displace animals. They use high definition thermal imaging cameras affixed to unmanned-drones and are able to quickly locate and rescue animals of all kinds. They've rescued animals from Ukraine (twice) and from both the Paradise and Camp fires in California.
Assert's volunteers are trained to rescue pets, livestock, native and exotic animals and act in accordance with all governing agencies while maintaining safety standards for all. Unfortunately they were not permitted into the Burn Zones while helping Save Maui Cats, but that didn't deter them. Instead they humanely live-trapped and saved dozen's of cats on the fire's perimeter, many of whom suffered from burns, smoke inhalation, and dehydration. These cats and kittens would not have survived without Assert's help.
And if that's not enough, they built (4) cat enclosures to make room for al those cats to rest and recuperate until we can find safe alternatives for them. We can't say enough about Ryan and his team and are awed and humbled by their support and true love for animals.
Thanks to a generous grant provided by the
Doris Day Animal Foundation, we are able to continue to save the lives of cats on Maui
- while reducing overpopulation through
our TNRM efforts.
This incredible organization came through for us during the Maui fires and because of them, we have been able to provide necessary care
for many of Maui's burned and fire-affected kitties. They thank you and so do we.
Thank you Doris Day!!
Denise is a Los Angeles based editor who heard about what we do and wanted to help. She edited footage of Michael doing his "rounds" and turned it into this short but powerful masterpiece.
Love our logo? So do we! We searched high and low for an artist who's work could tell our story. We finally found illustrator Mike Paul online and knew he was the artist for us! View more of Mike's artwork at mikepaulart.com

Cici joined our efforts to bring you the best website we could offer. She has great ideas and we are so grateful to her for her contribution.
Many Maui residents and business owners have reached out and helped our cause by offering to feed cats in their community. Others came forward to adopt a lifelong friend. Thank you to everyone who continues to support us!
