What is a farmed animal sanctuary?
A safe haven for animals like cows, pigs, chickens, and other farmed animals. Here, they can live the rest of their lives in peace, without being used or exploited.
Where do the animals come from?
We accept animals who have been abused, abandoned, and/or neglected and have no where else to go. We also accept animals at risk of being sent to slaughter without legal intervention.
How can I help?
There are many opportunities to get involved. You can donate, purchase us something on our "wishlist," volunteer, or fundraise for us. Please click the "DONATE" or "GET INVOLVED" tabs above for more information.
"It takes nothing away from a human to be kind to an animal."

GIFT Foundation 2019 Recipient
MARCH 9, 2020
We have been keeping this news a secret for a while! We are so happy to announce that we were chosen by the GIFT Foundation as one of their 2019 grant recipients!
The GIFT Foundation of Hawaii is also a non-profit whose mission is to encourage young people to give back to their communities. Every year they host the best Halloween party in all of Waikiki, and they donate the proceeds to non-profits of their choice! This grant was given to us solely to go towards the building of a Learning Center at the sanctuary. This educational center will be a community space, welcoming people of all ages, but geared towards programs to empower the youth. At Aloha Animal Sanctuary, we offer unique opportunities to our keiki. We hope to raise a generation of children who are connected to the animals and the land— children who will become peaceful leaders in their communities.
The Sanctuary is a magical place, and we’ve personally seen through our community days and tours how eager and open children are to making a connection with animals, and the joy that they receive through helping them. With the Learning Center, we will be able to create tours and events that are designed for the benefit and enjoyment of all.
Special thank you to our Director of Development Hannah Mizuno who learned about this grant and made sure we got our application done in time! We love you!
Please help us build the pigs a barn!
FEBRUARY 22, 2020
Each $50 donation gets your name written on the new pig barn! Size of names will be approximately 2.5" X 10". This would also make a most thoughtful gift for the animal lover in your life! We will send you a personalized photo of your name on the barn after it is finished, too.
The current pig shelter we have was always meant to be temporary, and unfortunately it is not meant for adult farmed pigs like Haku or Eleanor. These two have had a lot of fun this year destroying their current shelter, and the time has come for us to build them a real barn. Our incredible architect Natalie Snyder has designed us a new barn that can withstand not only piggos, but also hurricanes, and provide adequate shade during the summer. We have worked to get the price as low as possible and will be doing our best to source donated lumber and labor as much as possible.
Our goal for fundraising to build the barn is $4,000, and with your help, we believe we can reach this! Together, let's build a barn! Click the link below to donate and get your name on the barn:
