Our Farm is located near the village of Mesagros on the island of Aegina in Greece. Animals, especially cats and dogs, are abandoned on Aegina. We take the animals in,address their health issues, give them a place to live and be loved and try to find them homes when we can.
The farm is run by volunteers and funded exclusively by private donations.
We believe in treading lightly on our planet as we try to become the change we want to see in the world.
We love animals and live in a sustainable and simple way and would be happy to host voluteers who share our passion for animals and want work with us to help them and learn from them.
The volunteers will participate in our daily routine of feeding, cleaning, dog walking, community food making (vegetarian) etc.
This farm is not for everybody. A lot of the modern comforts we take for granted are not available.You have to be a strong animal lover, be comfortable living in nature and enjoy an alternative lifestyle.If that is the case, we are very much looking forward to your help in caring for our animals.
