Laurelee Blanchard, Founder and President of Leilani Farm Sanctuary, left behind a lucrative career as Senior Vice President at the national firm of Lee and Associates Commercial Real Estate Services to devote her life to animal protection and humane education. In 1999, she cashed out her life savings, moved from Orange County, California, to Haiku, Maui; and developed an 8-acre farm to save animals from neglect, abuse, and slaughter.
Leilani Farm Sanctuary, an all volunteer, non-profit organization, is now home to nearly three hundred rescued animals, including goats, chickens, rabbits, ducks, donkeys, geese, deer, cats, pigs, sheep, turkeys, guinea pigs, tortoises, and a cow. The Sanctuary provides educational programs for school groups and special needs visitors; and offers farm tours to the general public.
