The Santorini Animal Welfare Association – SAWA is a non-governmental, non-profit  organization, founded in 1992 by active and devoted animal lovers of the island of Santorini, Greece. In 2021 we started to build a new shelter for all the stray and abandoned animals of Santorini. Our goal is to provide a happy home for these animals and, where possible, give them a second chance for a life in a loving family. This shelter is one of the few places in the world that allows animals to coexist in groups instead of individual cages and that uniquely creates a safe haven for animals until they can be adopted. We have done this for over 10 years and have track record but we cannot do it without your support. The financing of this project is only possible with the help and donations of devoted animal lovers. We have already achieved a lot, but there is still a lot to do to provide the animals with everything that is urgently needed for a carefree life. Please support us with your donation for urgently needed: 

fencing (approx 500 Meter for Perimeter Fencing and Dog Areas)

stables (one additional is needed)

bad weather protection

expansion of the water supply

medical equipment for wound care 


General Help

In close cooperation with the Municipality of Thira and the local vet, SAWA insures that the stray animals are neutered and spayed, vaccinated, treated in case of injury, disease or poisoning and, if possible, can be re-homed in Greece or abroad.   During the last years we’ve been promoting well-being and respect for these wonderful animals. Please join us to make every day count for them and help these animals with your donation. Thank you very much in the name of those without a voice !
