Overview

Hope was our first rescue in January 2004, Dusty the second. Since then over 450 donkeys have been taken into our refuge here in Corfu. As a refuge we aim to give: the old a safe and happy retirement; the sick a chance of cure; the injured the chance of recovery; the abused the chance of regaining trust and hope and the abandoned the feeling of security again. Take a look on our website for more information, pictures and a detailed map.You are very welcome to visit us, see the work we do and experience the calm company of our donkeys.

We are animal mad people so we had to hit the corfu donkey rescue centre. Was very impressed with the owner/ guide who was very passionate about the donkeys. We got to brush them and it was very hands on. Great for little ones.

It's a peaceful place, a true safe haven for animals in need. It's so obviously about the animals. Their care and comfort. A chance to help give them some love and care. A lovely project, that welcomes all.

donkeys, horses, cats and dogs, the volunteers here do an amazing job. We didn't stay long, but took carrots and a donation, and had a fab walk, even though the weather was stormy!
