All animals in Greece are protected by the law.
Update April 2019: GAWF paid to have the Greek Government circular of August 2018 regarding the “Protection of Working Equines” officially translated into English to help the Equine welfare community in Greece use its contents to be better informed about the current legal status of animal welfare laws affecting horses, donkeys and mules, and how to use it to report animal abuse.

However, we all know that the Greek Government is still to implement European Commission Regulations (EU) 2015/262, commonly known as the ‘Equine Passport Regulation’. We continue to lobby the Greek Government to fully implement the provisions of this EU wide legal obligation.
