My family and I were recently staying at Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa in Ko Olina. But, this is our second time in Hawai'i and we figured we would island hop. We went to Lanai and had no idea what we should do. I saw something that said "A Cat Lovers Paradise" on it. I immediately picked it up... More

Since I love cats I was a little hesitant to go and see so many without a home. Also afraid that I might want to take some home with me. I was delighted to see the care that they receive and the space that they have to do as they wish. Some came to greet me, some hid and some... More

When you step onto the grounds of LARC, it is like stepping into kitty paradise! With around 400 kitties at LARC, you are quickly surrounded by curious feline greeters. Two dedicated staff members, Amanda and Mike, greeted us at the gate and were so generous with their time to show us around and answer our many questions. The founder, Kathy,... More

My daughter and I stopped by on our way back to town. It was well worth the stop. She loved being around the cats and it was so clean considering how many cats are cared for there. Super friendly and welcoming staff too.

Come spend time with Lana'i's (Little) Lions and the wonderful people at LARC. The place is extraordinarily well run: clean, safe, and peaceful--a perfect sanctuary for the "Lana'i Lions" as the Founder, Kathy Carroll calls them. The cats are friendly and there's plenty of places to sit and get a lap-full of fur. Be sure to bring a cat toy... More

My husband and I travelled to Lanai January this year for part of our honeymoon and we heard there was a cat sanctuary and as cat lovers, we decided upon a visit. When we arrived we were greeted not only by Kathy, but several cats lazily basking in the sun and kittens running around. It was an extremely pleasant afternoon... More

My husband and another couple made the day trip to Lanai from Maui in April. We are all cat lovers, but never expected how amazing it would be to meet Cathy and the staff, and of course the 404 cats that call it home. Cathy is one of the most amazing people you will ever meet, and her care and... More

I have never seen a place like this. An outdoor sanctuary for 400 cats. It was clean and really a fun time. Most of the cats wanted to playand were extremely friendly. The staff were very informative. They do great work. This could be a model for any warm weather place.

Upon our first visit to Lanai Island I discovered the Lanai Animal Rescue Center. Mike Carroll the owner of "Mike Carroll Gallery" In Lanai City had a most wonderful painting of a beautiful lady surrounded by cats. She happened to be his wife and he suggested we visit the Lanai Animal Rescue center. My Son and I had such a... More
