About
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.

Amazing experience

We absolutely loved the Donkey Rescue. As soon as we arrived a very nice lady showed us around and explained the history of this rescue and introduced us to many of the donkeys and other animals. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who likes animals :)

Lovely visit, warm staff & friendly donkeys

There is not much I can add that hasn't been said already. I'd strongly encourage people to go to the sanctuary for a small tour by the friendly staff and for the opportunity to get to meet some vert friendly and well cared for animals.

So many animals!
Sep 2019 • Couples
Cats and dogs and cockerels and DONKEYS and couple of horses too. But mainly donkeys. And you can pet the cats and stroke the donkeys. Is there anything more that you could ask for?!

The last bit of road was bumpy dirt road but drivable when going slow. At the end of the road was a good parking space. The rescue area was fenced and gated so the dogs and the donkeys won't wander away and it is important to close the gates. We got a good walkaround of the premises and there were good signage of dos and don'ts. After the tour we had all the time we wanted to pet the animals.

This is a rescue so the animals are taken care off and appropriately medicated. The animals are free to roam according to their condition (some were on guarantee becouse of diseases, some are on a strict diet etc). There is no entry fee but the rescue runs on donations so take some cash with you.

The animals seems to like the attention. For example the donkeys queue up for the strokes and the cats purr in your lap. Margarita was my favourite and she politely asked for more behind the ear scratches by resting her head on my lap.

Nice to visit
Sep 2019 • Couples
Worth a visit - the roads leading up to the sanctuary are very bumpy, just be warned. Plenty of parking, just park wherever you can. You are greeted by a volunteer at the gate who offers you a tour, or invites you to walk around at your own pace (your choice). We wandered around the site, you can go anywhere you like, and we stayed for approx 30 minutes. The site is small, but the work they do there is excellent. Donations are welcome on exit, but by no means pushy about it.

Lovely Donkey Visit
Sep 2019 • Couples
We visited the donkey sanctuary yesterday. It’s a hard place to find and get to, we travelled 45 mins to get there. They have a large selection of cute donkies - they all looked well cared for. They had a few cats roaming around which you could stroke. They had dogs in large cages but you couldn’t go near them as they would bight. You could stroke the donkeys and brush them - but you can’t feed them. They say you can bring food for them and they will feed them later (I took 12 apples) the donkeys are in a nice area and lots of space to roam around. The only downside was I didn’t find the 3 ladies that worked there welcoming - they didn’t chat with you explain about the donkeys and where they came from, one lady just said what you can’t do. The other ladies looked miserable. They heavily reply on donations - any amount helps. Overall it’s a great experience and would recommend.

Please Visit

My wife and i went to vist the sanctuary, and what a lovely place to visit, we really enjoyed our time there, the helpers are so committed and you just have to take your hat off to them all.
It depends heavily on donations, so if you can support it please do. We will certainly be back to visit once we get back to Corfu.
This a great idea and so needs peoples support, annoyingly i didnt take my big camera as its awkward to carry sometimes but i really wish i had. 10 out of 10 for dedication, committment and anthing else that goes along with it.
See you again, Jackie & Stevie
