Magical Creatures of Hamakua
Where farmed animals find sanctuary
Meet the animals
Magical Creatures of Hamakua rescues, rehabilitates, and offers life-long sanctuary to animals on the Big Island while serving the Hawaiian community with programs that promote kindness, compassion, and stewardship.
Rescue & Shelter
MCOH provides lifelong care for the farmed animals that we take in. Though we are not an open-intake sanctuary, we do everything that we can to make sure that injured, neglected, or lost farmed animals can find peace with us. This includes housing, feeding, providing medical care, and giving them all the love they can handle.
Educate & Advocate
Change starts within the community, and we are grateful for the opportunities that we have to share the stories of the animals at MCOH. We want to stop the cycle of farmed animal abuse by educating our communities and advocating for the animals every chance that we get.
Support & Collaborate
Since its inception, MCOH has worked with other local organizations and community groups to provide expertise, help sick and injured animals find care, and sometimes take in animals when the need arises. We are happy to be able to be a part of a network that truly cares for animals and to play our part in helping as many animals as possible.
Help our special needs animals...
Did you know that here at Magical Creature of Hamakua, our animal sanctuary is home to six animals with special needs? Those special needs often need additional care, special sheltering, and other items to accommodate the things that make them different. Caring for a special needs animal has its challenges, but it’s certainly a rewarding experience. Our special needs animals have additional expenses associated with them, and they could use extra people helping to make their lives exceptional. Please consider donating to our Special Needs Fund today. Click on the button below and mark your donation with "Special Needs"
