Can I visit Vrouva Farm?
Your support is essential to us and we very much want to share with you our love for the Farm's animals and our worldview. Out of respect to our animals, visits to the farm are scheduled at certain times a month only.
Can I volunteer at Vrouva Farm?
Volunteers are welcome for a minimium period of one month.
Which animals do you have?
Can Vrouva Farm help with trapping and taking in strays?
Vrouva is a farm sanctuary and not an animal protection facility. We can offer support to fellow rescuers when possible but cannot help taking in new animals as our space is limited.
What should I do if I have questions about my pets health or behavior?
Vrouva is a farm sanctuary and not an animal protection facility. We can offer support to fellow rescuers when possible but cannot help people with their pets.
What should I do when I see a farm animal in need?
It’s best to find out who the owner is and for what reason the animal is unattended.
If the animal is on Aegina, contact the police and Animal Protection of Aegina - Agistri. You can also message us on our fb page or email but mostly what we can offer is advice.
Can I visit outside visiting hours?
Dear friends, we have to be honest: visits are not easy for us.
On one hand, we are very touched by your interest in Vrouva Farm. Your support is essential to us and we very much want to share with you our love for the Farm’s animals and our worldview.
And, of course it is a joy to meet animal lovers, animal people, vegans, animal activists...
Also, our animals enjoy the treats and the love you bring them.
On the other hand though, visits require considerable work and organisation on our part in order to be safe and enjoyable. The farm has to be clean and tidy. All animals need to be in inside, in their pens. Shy, excitable and aggressive animals must be enclosed separately and safely.
We must have organised no vet or farrier visits, no trainings,no dog walks, no deliveries, repairs etc.
This is why we open the farm only twice each month, every first and last Saturday usually.
Please forgive us for this lack of hospitality. We are a small group of volunteers and we care for over 100 animals.We give all the time and energy we can afford to meet their needs as best as we can.
We hope in the future, when the family of Vrouva volunteers will be larger we will be able to share the Farm and it’s message more broadly. Until then we ask for your understanding and cooperation.Thank you.
