Can I Come Visit The Boo Boo Zoo?
The East Maui Animal Refuge welcomes private visits from individuals and small groups by appointment only. Though we are technically not open to the public with posted visiting hours, we would love to share this remarkable experience with you!  We are supported by the public's generosity and donations are appreciated.

Visiting Times: Afternoons are normally the best time to visit. Please call at least two days in advance at 808-572-8308
Mahalo for your interest in the East Maui Animal Refuge, aka "The Boo Boo Zoo!"

Is there an admission fee?
There is no charge to visit, but donations are requested and very much needed. EMAR is a 501c3, volunteer driven, nonprofit organization. Your support goes directly to caring for the animals.

What should I wear when I visit?
For your comfort and safety you should be prepared for Haiku's often wet and rainy weather. Wear close toed shoes and hiking style clothing that you don't mind getting dirty. The chances of getting muddy paw prints on your clothing? Guaranteed!

What NOT to Bring: Cameras are fine, but know that anything hanging low enough for an animal to reach will probably get gently chewed on. It is best to stow purses and bags in your car, leaving your hands free for petting. Strollers are not allowed on property, and unfortunately the grounds are not wheelchair accessible. 

If you plan to bring treats for the animals, please discuss this with us when you call so we may advise you what to bring. Glassware and avacados are not allowed.

Can I bring my children?
Be prepared to hold small children most of the time you're here. Being eye to eye with some of our animals can be intimidating to little ones. Children must have adult superivision at all times, and may not be "dropped off" to visit on their own.
