Working Crew

Meet OurVolunteers

East Maui Animal Refuge is run almost entirely by volunteers. Our cattery, which is a large facility with more than 100 cats, is entirely volunteer run. Everyday one or more volunteers arrive for 8-10 hours of work including feeding cleaning, sweeping, mopping and cleaning 60 litter boxes! And don’t forget the laundry.

Other volunteers care for the farm animals and the birds and the deer. They load and unload heavy bails of hay and food, power wash the courtyard and clean up after our pigs, goats, ducks, chickens, horses, deer and our beautiful bovine. It’s hard work. It’s constant work. Our volunteers do this because of their love and dedication to the animals and to our mission. Many of our volunteers have been with us for ten years.


We always need help with day-to-day operations of cleaning and caring for the animals, carpentry, building and repair, electrical, plumbing, landscaping, fencing repair and maintenance, gravel and cement work, and fundraising.

​We are volunteer based and couldn’t continue without the support from our wonderful volunteers!
