Aloha Animal Sanctuary


What We Do

Aloha Animal Sanctuary is Oʻahu’s first 501(c)3 non-profit farmed animal sanctuary. We specialize in providing lifelong care for farmed animals who have been victims of neglect, abuse, or who are at-risk of being slaughtered. Equally important to our rescue work is the work we do educating the community on proper care and treatment of farmed animals. We hope to empower people to make decisions that do not harm animals. We hope to foster a culture that treats all beings with compassion.We are entirely volunteer-run and do not have any paid staff. Our team consists of managing directors, animal caretakers, bookkeepers, graphic designers, artists, veterinarians, grant-writers, carpenters, etc. MISSION STATEMENT: To provide sanctuary for neglected, abused, and/or abandoned farmed animals, and to promote compassion towards these animals through public engagement and education.
