It is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization created to provide shelter and care for abused animals, and humane education to the community. On the outer, most visible level, Leilani Farm Sanctuary lives and breathes upon a unique piece of rolling land, eight volcanic acres on a green Pacific island. But its superb location and jaw-dropping natural beauty are but reflections of its lush inner essence. The sanctuary is a refuge for animals, a safe haven for those fortunate enough to have found their way here. Each rescued animal has his or her story. Lehua, the donkey, had lived her life under the dark crawl space of a house, unable to graze and completely isolated from other animals. One goat was spared the butcher's knife through a near-miraculous change of heart by a worker at a meat ranch. Some of the sanctuary's young residents, including one very endearing deer and several goats were orphaned when hunters shot their mothers. Others, such as rabbits and chickens, had been given to children as holiday presents, then later discarded when they became too cumbersome to care for. Some of the roosters were liberated from cockfighting compounds. (We continue to work actively to put an end to this cruel, inhumane practice that passes in some cultures as "sport."). Cats live peacefully among chickens, stretching out on their backs in the warmth of the sun; rabbits become obsessed with tunnel-digging, their paws scratching the earth in accelerated motion, red dirt flying everywhere. In fact, all the animals at the sanctuary have unique personalities that showcase their individual characters. Here, the operative word is "community." Animals live in harmony with each other, as their deeply-ingrained cooperative ethic, based on survival, shapes their world-and informs ours, too. Leilani Farm Sanctuary provides a healthy, happy home for all these animals. It offers caring humans an opportunity to engage them in a natural setting where they're all loved, and where all their basic needs are attended to. Many visitors who have come here to meet the animals have been touched, each in his or her special way, by the "humanity" of these amazing and lovable beings. They've had a sample of compassion-in-action and have glimpsed the real possibility that all living beings might be treated with deep caring and respect. These human-animal encounters have proved over and again to be nothing less than genuine healing--on both sides of the equation. All are enriched by the love that is shared here. Our hope is that Leilani Farm Sanctuary will continue to serve as an ever-widening beacon of love and light for our ailing planet. We envision a world in which people everywhere have an abundance of good food to eat and without sacrificing the lives of innocent animals, in the process. We consider adopting a vegan diet, as one key aspect of living lightly on the earth, the best path to realizing that dream. May we all thrive, in peace and in a spirit of oneness! And may we always act responsibly, in ways that will benefit all sentient beings. less
