Pretty little Maui is a quiet 5-month-old kitten looking for her first real home.  After initially being found on the streets, she is finally back from foster care and ready for adoption.  Maui would love to be a part of a peaceful home where she can bond with her new family and perhaps another kitty.

If you would like to know more about Maui, please call the San Clemente-Dana Point Animal Shelter at 949.492.1617, or visit with her at the shelter, 221 Avenida Fabricante in San Clemente.

  • Funny, my family and I applied to adopt this very kitten two weeks ago, and were rejected on sight by the manager on duty at the time (Kathy, I think). She didn’t even interview or ask one question, just said we were not the right family for this kitten, and went on for ten minutes on how the kitten was born to a ferral mother, and “who knows what might happen two years from now”. That is an actual quote.

    To say we were turned off by the whole episode is an understatement. I thought the purpose of this shelter was to find homes for unwanted pets.

  • Funny, we tried to adopt this kitten two weeks ago, and were rejected summarily by the manager (Kathy?) without interview, without one question being asked of us. Mind you, this was after submitting an application, and having EVERY member of the family meet this kitten, and then waiting patiently for this manager to finish her long chit-chat with a friend. I thought the whole purpose of this city-owned facility was to place unwanted pets in respectable people’s homes?

  • Too bad Maui does not have a home yet. My family went to San Clemente shelter , saw Maui, and expressed our desire to adopt her. We waited for our turn to talk to this staff and the the moment we walked up to the front desk we were told right away by this person that we are not the right family. No questions, discussion, no interview, just the visual assessment of our family I guess the shelter staff made her judgement!! Very subjective in my opinion. SC Shelter should post appearance requirements , type of family, no kids/ with kids, how many kids, how old family members, etc on their postings so family like us will not bother making a trip to their establishment. Unpleasant experience for my young children first time to visit an animal shelter.
