Hope is the first cow to be rescued from slaughter in Greece.  A lovely woman spent a lot of time and effort to keep her alive and to make sure she arrived at Vrouva Farm safely. Hope herself thinks she is totally worth all this afford. She definitely knows she is special and can be naughty sometimes. She especially likes to knock over the water bowl.
But she also likes to cuddle and when she looks at you with her beautiful eyes, she can make everything all right again.  You can read more about Hope's journey in a series of blogs.

Margarita was abandoned because she was too old to work. That was 12 years ago.  Since then, she's been enjoying her life. She loves to cuddle with people.
Hope, the cow, adores Margarita and often licks her.  This sometimes means Margarita has very trendy hairstyles. Hope’s saliva acts like gel and leaves Margarita’s hair in all sorts of funny shapes. Click her picture to see a video of them

Demetra (grey) and Artemis (brown) are sister. They were separated for 20 years and reunited in Vrouva Farm. Their joy was indescribable! From then on, they are always near each other

Demetra and Artemis

They came from a wildlife center that had to close down. The presence of the goats makes Vrouva even more lively. We enjoy having them around, they make everybody happy. Sometimes they can drive us crazy by always finding new ways to escape and eat plants that we would have loved to keep..

Tzanis was found together with Jina, tied up in the sun with no water.. He also was very very thin.. After a talk with the owner of the horses it was agreed that the horses would move to Vrouva. He enjoys is life at the farm and is a calm guy.

Vrouva farm is against sexism and values the roosters as much as the hens. The roosters have their own enclosure where they live a monastic life together with the sheep

Suzy was also saved from slaughter. She had a happy life together with the person that saved her. Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to stay with her owner. Her owner did make sure Suzy would go to Vrouva so she still would have a good life.
We love to take care of crazy Suzy with her pranks. She has made new friends at Vrouva and enjoys sharing her land with the chickens.

Bouriko came at Vrouva with a broken leg that was permanently damaged. But, we've seen him adjust and enjoying life. With the vet we are looking into the option of an prosthetic leg.
He is a very clever donkey. He knows how to open gates and he used to open them, letting all the other donkeys, horses and cows out, too!   This created a mess, so we've started “Bouriko proofing” our gates. He also does this amazing acrobatic thing where he stands on his back legs to reach the branches of the olive trees and eats them.

poor billy spend her whole life in a cat box before she came to live at Vrouva. She was a pet bunny of some children, who got tired of her once they grew older and didn’t want  her anymore..
At Vrouva she is enjoying life again and she plays an important role in fostering kittens. She loves to cuddle with them

Manolis ended up in Vrouva because of his ‘bad’ character. Jina, young, kind and beautiful was just temporary but fell in love with Manoli and so she stayed. The two are inseparable!
