In a state best known for romantic palm-laden beaches, grass skirts, and hula dancing, the Lana`i Animal Rescue Center (LARC) has become a delightfully surprising tourist destination. Currently ranked as a top island attraction on Tripadvisor, LARC is an outdoor paradise where homeless cats are doted on by volunteers and visitors alike. LARC has partnered with Four Seasons Resorts, Lana`i to offer “Pet and Purr” voluntourism opportunities to animal-loving guests from around the world — some visitors even choose the island Lana’i as their vacation destination just so they can visit Lanai’s “little lions.”
We have a Pet-n-Purr Open House every Sunday between 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. where everyone is welcome. If you are visiting our island during the week and would like to schedule a private visitation, or adopt one of our wonderful Lanaian Lions, please call us! Our Kitty Concierge would be more than happy to assist you! You can find our contact information on the CONTACT US page.
We are located on Kaunolu rd. It is the second dirt road after the airport, on Kaumalapau HWY. Turn left on Kaunolu rd (you will see “KAUNOLU” engraved on a big boulder, and a smaller rock on top that says “LARC”). You will immediately come upon the Sanctuary on your right. Enjoy, we look forward to seeing you!
