  • Description


    We are looking for a live-in caretaker at Oahu's first nonprofit farmed animal sanctuary. We provide refuge for farmed animals in need and work to foster a culture of compassion towards them through public engagement and education.

    The Sanctuary is located on 2-acres of agricultural land overlooking the Koolau mountain range, providing sanctuary to over 30 rescued animals. As we expand and develop the facility, we hope to continue to clean and restore the land and offer a holistic education encompassing our Four Pillar Values, animals, community, education, and sustainability.

    We are a vegan animal sanctuary searching for a candidate (one person or a couple) who are hardworking, have a passion for working with animals, and enjoy off-the-grid, simplistic living. Located on the beautiful island of O’ahu, this is a tropical glamping adventure.
