Our jeep rental lady suggested that we check it out. A bit hard to find as there was no roadside signage. There were about 400 cats there of all shapes, sizes and colors. Most wanted attention and would come up and want to be petted. The staff was very friendly and caring of the animals.a neat place to visit and... More

I wasn't expecting a lot when I read up about the cat sanctuary but the tremendous amounts of positive reviews from Tripadvisor made it a must see place when we were in Lanai. My expectations were blown away from the minute we pulled up to when we left an hour later (wish I could have stayed a few more). Kathy... More

The focus of my trip to Lana'i was to spend time at the Lanai Animal Rescue Center. I had three days of playing with all the wonderful kitties, spending time with the fabulous cat caretakers and meeting the founder of the Center. The cats are all beautiful, almost all of them are friendly and solicit your attention and demand a... More

Daughters and Wife loved this place- not a cat fan, but it was nice to see how dedicated the volunteers are to helping the cats. Nice stop.

After spending 8 glorious days on Lanai, I saved the best for last and visited the Sanctuary (should be Kitty Nirvana)! The creativity and dedication of the staff who care 24/7 for almost 400 furry friends is beyond belief. Not only is each kitty named, recognized and spoken to by name, but each one is loved and petted every day!... More

We spent some time at the Lana'i Animal Rescue Center, which has been set up to trap the cats on the island and rehome them where possible. They had over 300 cats there, all well fed and cared for in an enclosed situation. Such good work deserves accolades. Well done to the woman who set it up and the volunteers... More

Take time and visit LARC for a heart warming experience that you won't forget. My husband and I are both cat lovers. This is the place to give "love pets" to so many grateful cats! I entered their compound, sat on the bench and was immediately greeted by so many cats who were so excited to see us! The staff... More
