The East Maui Animal Refuge (EMAR) is a Sanctuary for injured or unadoptable animals. EMAR cares for more than 300 animals. Our animals arrive at EMAR when they have no other choice. They are injured or unadoptable animals who would otherwise die.
We receive animals who are turned away by other organizations or who have been dropped off by caring humans who found the animal in distress.
We take in cats with FIV and leukemia and care for them for life. Some of our oldest cats have FIV or leukemia.
We care for cats, goats, deer, cows, pigs, geese, ducks, sheep, horses. Many of our deer were hit by cars or orphaned by hunters.
We have only a few dogs because there are many other organizations on Maui who take in, and care for, dogs.
