Lanai Cat Sanctuary

Lanai Cat Sanctuary

With 25 cats, a horse corral and a dream, Lanai Cat Sanctuary was born. When founder Kathy Carroll moved to the island of Lanai from Illinois, she was shocked to see the large homeless cat population. She vowed to stop the suffering of cats struggling to survive and rallied volunteers to help. Today on 3.5 acres, Lanai Cat Sanctuary is home to more than 600 rescue cats who now have food, medical care and love, for life.

Not gonna lie, the @lanaicatsanctuary was one of the things I looked forward to most on @visitlanai! OVER 600 CATS live in this idyllic sanctuary, free to socialize or lounge in the bushes, climb the trees or in the “cattic” or “catfeteria” 😂😍. Many of them will be quite excited to see you! You can even adopt one from the sanctuary — someday I’d love to do that as I’m a total cat person!
We spent over 2hrs hanging out with them, and then donated to help support the organization that helps pay for their veterinary care. Seriously an amazing program, and highly recommend you pay these cuties a visit while you’re on Lanai!
TELL ME: any other cat ladies out there?! Or gents 😆🐈
