This is a great sanctuary for homeless cats. It is well done with a large area for cats to live and explore. Well-taken care of and a great model for a sanctuary. Well worth visiting and experiencing if you are an animal lover.

OMG. This is the place to visit for someone who loves cats ;) Friendly cats are waiting for you! They will chase you around. I wish if I had 10 more hands to pet them at the same time. Their staff are very nice and friendly too! A great place for cats and people who love cats :)

This attraction is not well known. We didn't know about it until our hotel concierge mentioned it. My husband and I love kitties and were missing our own. When we were out on Lanai, we took our ATVs that we rented over to the Cat Sanctuary (Lanai Animal Rescue Center). The staff and the cats were so welcoming and happy... More

We went to LARC for my husband's 50th birthday in September. Anywhere in the world we could have gone done anything, and he chose to visit LARC which tells you what an amazing, deeply inspirational and compassionate place this is. We had visited a couple of years before and were so delighted by what we saw and experienced that I... More

My 2 young daughters (ages 4 and 7)and I visited LARC at the end of August 2014. I cannot say enough about Kathy as well as the other volunteers Lynn and Amanda. Everyone is truly devoted to the kitties at LARC. When my girls and I arrived on Lanai without a car (they were sold-out), Kathy offered to pick us... More

I've been a LARC fan for over 2 years, and while I had met Kathy and her husband on our 2012 trip, did not make it to the actual LARC site (but did make it to their store and studio...he is an amazing artist). I have made LARC one of my charities, and this year decided to visit as we'd... More

I came to the LARC for my birthday on July 1st. Being a local resident on the island of Oahu, this was a spur of the moment adventure for me as I booked my flight the day before my birthday. After reading the reviews for LARC on TripAdvisor, and being the cat lover that I am (and having rescue cats... More

We stopped here for about an hour to see the cats. The cats are friendly and love attention. The staff provided us with treats and brushes - the cats definitely liked being brushed. They are all well taken care of and are in very good hands.

I read about LARC on Tripadvisor prior to our visit to Lanai. My adult daughter, her boyfriend and I made an unannounced visit on June 20, 2014. We were greeted by volunteer staff who graciously welcomed us at the gate. The facility was very clean and the cats were very happy in their spacious surroundings. What struck me was the... More

As one who is not the biggest cat lover, going here with my girlfriend during our holiday was not only surprisingly one of the highlights of the trip, but also allowed me to gain a lot of knowledge, respect and love for cats. Kathy was amazing and passionate and demonstrated all of the characteristics that prove why the Rescue Center... More
