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. For health and behavioral problems, contact a local vet. Aegina has 4 vet clinics. If you need advice on a stray cat or dog situation, you can contact Animal Protection Aegina Agistri, (APAA) the local animal welfare charity. APAA manages a dog shelter and neutering programs for stray dogs and cats.




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. Sometimes there are people who help us by taking animals into their garden or field that are in bad condition until we can find a suitable space for them. If not on Aegina, contact the police and/ or the local animal welfare group.
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. And of course, one of our volunteers has to take time out of their super busy schedule to host our visitors and oversee their safety as well as that of our animals.
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. Unfortunately the farm is closed at the moment because of covid.
