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

LARC is more than just a cat shelter or sanctuary. Rather to me, it's an amazing example of how much good a small handful of dedicated people can accomplish! Needless to say, I found this place, and it's people to be inspiring. For less than the cost of one cocktail at either of the Four Seasons resorts on the island,... More

This has to be one of the most interesting and humane animal rescue centers we have ever seen. Over 380 feral and homeless cats, all living outdoors in the ideal Lana'i weather, with amazing and inventive structures to call home. The area is naturally beautiful and fenced to keep them in, but very large for roaming. All of the animals... More

My wife is an over the top cat lover and was nothing more than amazed by what Kathy, her staff and the many volunteers and supporters have done with the rescue center. There are over 375 cats and she knew most, if not all, of their names. We spent a great day on Lanai and this was the highlight of... More

We had a great time loving on all the kitties! We were on vacation in Lanai and missing our own cats. Kathy and her team welcomed us in and introduced us to all of the cats-yes, they really do know ALL of their names. I would recommend this as a stop for anyone who likes cats. These animals are well... More

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 :)
