Animal lovers will want to take time to visit the Corfu Donkey Rescue. Established in 2004, this refuge is home to more than 500 donkeys that were abandoned or mistreated.

The sanctuary offers former working donkeys a peaceful retirement with comfortable barns, plenty of food and medical treatment. When you visit the rescue, you'll have the opportunity to take one of the donkeys for a walk (unless it's feeding time).

You'll find the Corfu Donkey Rescue on the National Paleokastritsa Road about 5 miles northeast from the Paleokastritsa Monastery. You can visit seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., but keep in mind that during the hot summer months, you might not be able to walk the donkeys. There's no charge for admission, but the rescue takes donations. For more information, visit the sanctuary's website.
