We’re just a tail’s wag from the airport

In the absence of street signs and an address, the best directions involve a dirt road and a really big rock. After passing the airport, take the second dirt road on the left and look for a highway rock marker that reads Kaunolu, an ancient village. Turn left and look for the gate on the right. We look forward to your visit!sit!

There’s no admission fee. Do leave your most generous tax-deductible donation if you want to help as the sanctuary relies on the generosity of its visitors to continue its rescue work and provide lifelong care.

Open daily from 10 am to 3 pm. No appointment is required. Bring a picnic and be ready to play and stay the day. We have cold soda, juice, and water available for purchase. Know that you might have to stand on a makeshift box in the middle of a field to catch a cell phone signal.

Finding your way to us

As a busy sanctuary with hundreds of cats in our care, we simply can’t provide travel coordination services, advice or keep up with all the inquiries on how to get here and where to stay. We do not provide recommendations, prices and advice on getting to Lanai as that information is constantly changing by these companies. Contact any of these resources directly for assistance.

Once on island, they are easy to find and are at every ferry landing 7 days a week. We have heard that they are a challenge to reach by phone. Unfortunately, we do not have any way to improve this.
