Animal Welfare

There are several organisations in the Rethymnon area that are involved with the welfare of animals.


Animal Welfare Volunteer Group is a fairly new organisation. It organises neutering programs and also tries to re-home animals. For a current list of dogs and cats that need a new home, check out the re-homing page.


Φιλοζωικός Σύλλογος Ρεθύμνου / Friends of Animals Rethymno is a well-established animal welfare group in Rethymnon. Since December 2011 there have been some changes in the organisation and for the time being we can only direct you to their facebook page for more information.


Christine in the village of Pigi looks after lots of stray animals. She organises a car boot sale / table top sale on the first Sunday of every month at the Kri Kri Warehouse in Pigi from 9am to 2pm. The price to rent a table is 10 euros, proceeds go towards helping our stray animals. For more information please phone 28310 72977. If you have any unwanted bric-a-brac etc. donations would be more than welcome!


Please contact us if you know of any other organisations that are involved with animal welfare in the Rethymnon region so we can include them in this list. Thank you!
