Looks like Tropical Storm Wali did some damage to the eight-acre Leilani Farm Sanctuary, the volunteer-run refuge for rescued goats, cats, chickens, rabbits, deer, peahens, pigs, ducks and even donkeys in Haiku.
“Huge trees crushed three animal houses and collapsed a section of fencing,” wrote sanctuary founder Laurelee Blanchard in a July 25 email. “Miraculously, animals survived in small pockets of space of the wreckage, but they had to be extricated with saws and wire cutters.”
Blanchard says the sanctuary needs money and/or volunteers to get rid of the fallen trees and rebuild what collapsed. You can find out more at LeilaniFarmSanctuary.org or by calling 808-298-8544.
