This was truly a amazing experience! I love to travel, but find myself missing my pets. This sanctuary for rescued cats was the "fix" I needed and I was doubly blessed by the rich conversation my husband and I enjoyed with the founder, Kathy Carroll. Her husband, Mike, is a gallery owner and artist whose gallery is in Lanai. They... More

What a wonderful place for displaced feral cats living on the Hawaiian Island of Lania! This wonderful sanctuary is certainly worth a visit if you are spending time on the island. The Lanai Animal Rescue Center is an outdoor heaven for cats and for the people who visit. All the cats have been spayed/neutered, micro chipped and are given regular... More

It is a happy place for cats. There is plenty of room for them to roam, trees to climb, places to curl up and snooze, and friendly people to care for them. If I were a cat waiting for a home this is where I'd like to be.

We found out about this sanctuary from TripAdvisor. We don't play golf and love animals, so this was a great Lanai excursion! The hotel arranged a very inexpensive shuttle for us to go and visit the rescue center. We spent a lot of time with Cathy and the cats. So many cats and they are so great to be around... More

My wife & I spent about an hour with Cathy and 380 loveable cats. Next time we will save all day for that adventure. We had the most wonderful time with Cathy and all the lovable cats. She has done a remarkable job of providing a loving environment for them. Everywhere you look there is another feature the cats are... More

It is absolutely incredible to see what loving people can do for cats who were once feral, hungry and often unloved and... More

If you love animals, like I do, it's a place to visit on Lanai. This cat sanctuary is wonderful! I got a tour of the sanctuary and they have dispensaries for doing surgery, cats with colds, recovering from surgery. It's clean and they are in great hands (the volunteers who help out). It might be alittle overwhelming at first to... More

If you are an animal lover, don't miss seeing this place. Kathy Carroll and her team of volunteers have built a wonderful facility on a shoestring budget. The place is a testament to what one loving person with a vision and a mission can do to make the world a better place. The cats (350+) live together in an impeccably... More

Second time on Lana'i, first visit to kitty paradise! We heard about this place last year, but weren't able to make it out during that visit. What a bummer! Fortunately, though, we did stop by on this trip and were treated to lots of love and affection from these adorable felines. The majority of the kitties are very friendly and... More
