Time & Location
About the Event

"In the summer of 2018, four animal rights activists embarked on a journey to create O’ahu’s first non-profit farmed animal sanctuary: Aloha Animal Sanctuary. Right before Thanksgiving 2018, a visit to a farm propelled the activists to solidify their dreams. They committed to rescuing Haku the pig from becoming someone’s holiday dinner. Haku arrived at the sanctuary January 1st, 2019 and the sanctuary became operational. Since then, the sanctuary has continued to expand, welcoming additional pigs, goats, chickens, and ducks, etc. Its small dedicated team of four has grown into a volunteer team of over 50 weekly caretakers, with strong community involvement. Please come to hear the full story of our sanctuary journey, the trials and tribulations, the stories of the incredible animal residents, and our goals and hopes for the future."
