Rainbow Friends Animal Sanctuary is looking for volunteers to help with the care for the animals at our "no kill" shelter.
We need help with
-feeding, cleaning and socializing cats and kittens
-feeding and walking dogs.
-small facility maintenance issues, fixing fences, painting, and every number of small and large projects. Anyone with a plumbing or electrical background to help make some small changes would be fantastic!

We are also looking for volunteers to foster cats and kittens that may need to be socialized or until they are large enough to be adopted out.

If you have some free time that animals would be very grateful for your help!

Rainbow Friends Animal Sanctuary is most grateful for the grant award from the Petco Foundation for our lifesaving community programs of animal rescue, cat and dog spay & neuter, and finding caring adoption homes for pets. This award has been especially meaningful, allowing us to carry on our work during the related COVID-19 events affecting the people and pets of our island.
The grant funds helped extend our efforts and served the @PetcoFoundation mission to raise the quality of life for pets and people who love and need them. #PetcoFamily

We have 3 great kittens that will be looking for a home shortly. One longer haired calico (we call her Hermione). She is a little shy to start, but loves to play and will warm up. She is in foster care and could be ready to adopt this week from either where she is fostering in Hakalau, or at the Sanctuary.

Also a bonded pair of kittens that were found when they were less than a week old and were very fortunate to find a new mommy to take care of them. These 2 are likely going to be on the small side. The tabby/white one is very friendly and loves to sit on a lap, and the white and black one is very soft. These 2 sweethearts are being fostered in Hakalau, and are available to adopt from their foster home likely early next week.

Adoption is $65 per cat ($100 for the bonded pair) and includes spay/neuter, first shots and microchip.

We also have kittens in petco as well as cats available at the sanctuary for adoption every day from 10-3

Update, we did attempt to use some humor to help encourage people to return the carriers or traps they may have borrowed from us, not everyone realized that we did not "lose" these traps or misplace them.

We have been lending out carriers for people to bring animals to and from our low cost spay/neuter clinics to make sure they are transported safely. And during the lava flow into Pahoa many of our traps and carriers were used to rescue animals.

Sometimes people forget about returning them or can't make their way to the sanctuary, we just wanted to try to get some of them back for.
Sorry for any misunderstanding about whether we lost them.

LOST!
We seem to have misplaced a few hundred cat carriers and traps, if you have a spare trap, and for sure if it says "RAINBOW FRIENDS" on it, could you please bring it to us a the sanctuary.

Seriously, if you borrowed a trap or cage from Rainbow, please return it, we are very short and cannot afford to replace them at this time.
