Waimanalo Roadside Animal Farm asking for help from the community

A farm caring for unwanted animals in Waimanalo is being forced to find a new home. Farm tenants are asking for the community's help by attending a rally tomorrow. 

The Waimanalo Roadside Animal Farm will be holding a rally at noon on Sunday, with hopes of having more people sign their petition against the Department of Hawaiian Homelands from removing the farm off the property. 

Claude Colton created the sanctuary which now houses about 100 animals in the Waimanalo area. Visitors are able to stop by and feed them for free. Colton's uncles, Westin and Nowlin Correa, have been letting him use part of their 104 acre parcel which is leased from the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands. But the Correa's revocable permit was canceled in 2009 due to several violations, including commercial activity on the property.
