The Agia Marina Donkey Sanctuary is a safe haven for abandoned, aged & unwanted donkeys. 
We are not a dog sanctuary..... we help homeless, abandoned dogs by arranging sterilisation programs and helping, with the support of fosters, find forever homes.
We care for many hungry & thirsty barrel- and street dogs in the area.  Our grateful thanks to Arche Noah Kreta for their help with food donations and to Mirtos for their help with finding furever homes.

Due to the current financial crisis in Greece and large numbers of abandoned animals, we have made the decision to devote our precious time & hard earned funds on our rescue donkeys.  With the crisis, there are more and more donkeys needing our help.
