Deluxe Aviary for Rescued Chickens 

Hundreds of rescued chickens--some of whom were liberated from cockfighting compounds and egg-production facilities--are now enjoying their spacious new digs at the Sanctuary. 

Thanks to the support of our donors and volunteers, we have completed construction of a 2,000-square-foot enclosure, outfitted with bamboo roosting perches, nesting boxes, shade cloth, and an automated watering system. To provide the birds with a jungle-like environment, we've planted flowering vines inside and surrounded the aviary with banana plants. 


New Life for Cat Shot by Pellet Gun

Princess, an affectionate Persian-mix kitty, was shot numerous times with a pellet gun and lost an eye in the assault. After undergoing surgery to remove as many pellets as possible from her body, stray pellets still remain embedded in her tissues. Montessori School of Maui rescued Princess and cared for her many years before bringing her to Leilani Farm Sanctuary, where she is loved and cherished as a special member of our family.

Travel Magazine Features Leilani Farm Sanctuary

HAWAII Magazine's current issue features an article entitled "Greener Pastures", describing the Sanctuary and our rescue work. 

"Dozens of abandoned or abused animals--from goats, pigs and tortoises to ducks,

chickens and donkeys--have found new grazing grounds and a happy home thanks to

Leilani Farm Sanctuary, an Upcountry Maui farm that's...."

Teaching Children Kindness Toward Animals


A primary mission at Leilani Farm Sanctuary is humane education. Indeed, the awakening-to-kindness that we see when people and rescued animals meet and unabashedly look one another in the eye is often life-changing.

These open-hearted meetings between human and non-human can carve very deep impressions; they can burrow deeply into us and take up residence in our hearts and souls. We have seen, over and over again, how an "aha moment" (when one truly "gets" who the animal is) can become a profound awakening that provides a sweet memory--as well as motivating a shift in lifestyle in which one views an animal as an individual rather than a meal.

Children, in particular, seem to immediately recognize who these animals are. The multi-dimensional experiences they have while visiting the Sanctuary have the potential to "reframe" limiting ideas they may have been brought up with about what (and, more importantly, who) these pigs, chickens, goats, deer, and other animals are.
