First presentation of our equine welfare society is in the magazine “Ippasia” issue 337, January 2016. The association will initially get involved with actions relating to the improvement of current legislation. Later through coordinated activities we will start to offer equine care.


Laws and volunteers are the most important tools available to animal welfare organizations and citizens who are interested in animal protection.
Our association filed a document addressed to the Panhellenic Animal Welfare Federation reference number 05 / 11.30.15 on “Proposal submission to improve the existing animal protection legislation, with special reference and care of equine’.
This proposal will be incorporated by the Panhellenic Animal Welfare Federation to its legislative proposal at the competent authorities. Also most likely would be included in circular letters providing updated information concerning equine welfare.
