A non-governmental organization founded in 1992 by active and dedicated animal lovers of the island of Santorini, Greece.
SAWA is designed to protect the island’s animals-from stray dogs and cats to abandoned donkeys and mules.
In close cooperation with the municipality of Thira and the local veterinarian, SAWA assures that all stray animals are neutered, vaccinated and treated in the event of injury, illness or poisoning, and if possible made home again in Greece or abroad Be.
In addition, SAWA monitors the implementation of the Code of Practice/Code of Service Animal Protection for all donkeys and mules operating in the bay and is constantly working to curb their health and working conditions.
SAWA currently has around 120 dogs, 23 donkey/mule/have horses and 2 pigs.
