Animal Welfare

A couple of things you should know

There is a lot of talk on the web about the donkeys of Santorini as well as published articles about animal abuse and poor treatment of the animals.
Up to two decades ago, where donkey owners were only older people with no education and the animals were used only for every day work, this could be the case, but nowadays animal welfare has more or less been standardized even in remote areas and associations such as the "Donkey Association of Santorini", make sure that certain rules are applied with no exceptions to all donkey owners.
We need to clarify that each and every donkey that you ride, has a very proper and very good life including frequent veterinary check ups, good quality food and fresh water as well as proper shade for resting.
Feel free to ask for more info.
