We read that some folks enjoyed their time here and surprised ourselves when we reluctantly left the kitties after nearly 3.5 hours. Kathy gave us a tour of the Cateteria and grounds, then patiently answered all of our questions. There were some breeds that we had never before seen, all with very distinct personalities. Some are curious, others wary, several... More

Oh what a wonderful day my husband and I spent visiting with Kathy Carroll the founder of the Lanai Animal Rescue Center which is a REAL TRUE cat sanctuary. We made a one day trip to Lanai from Honolulu for this visit. If you get a chance, please visit this wonderful home for our cats and get some real true... More

We heard wonderful things about the Animal Rescue Center prior to our visit, but we were totally WOWED by the hospitality of Kathy and her staff! The facilities were well-kept, tidy, and a perfect environment for happy cats. Brushes and treats were provided to entice the cats to play with you, and even without any extras plenty of the friendly... More

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
