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.
Our cat sanctuary is funded purely by the generosity of people like you. All donations are truly appreciated.
Every day, we need 85 pounds of cat food. A $25 donation will feed 140 cats for a day.
Have a friend for life. Sponsor a cat and we’ll send you updates of your furry friend.
Every cat here has a name, a microchip, a medical record and receives regular veterinary visits.
As a safe haven for feral cats, we protect native and endangered ground-nesting sea birds.
Since our beginning in 2006, we’ve saved over 3,000 cats from hunger and homelessness.
Our cats love visitors. And with 600+ of them, you’ll have lots of chins to scratch and tail bones to rub.
It’s the best deal in Hawaii and there’s no shortage of cute photo ops. TripAdvisor rates us the #1 visitor attraction on Lanai.
