In July 2021, we teamed up with the amazing Animal Welfare Karpathos to deliver a one-day veterinary, dental and farriery event for the donkeys and mules of Olympos village. In total, we offered our services to 13 equines who – having never received such specialist care before – were a little tricky to handle! Thankfully, their condition was generally pretty good, and our team even used this as an opportunity to educate the locals on proper nutrition and prevention of health problems.
We were lucky enough to be there are the same time as filmmaker and director Mary Elle Alexander, who was shooting a documentary on the work Animal Welfare Karpathos are doing on the island. Mary was kind enough to capture some of our work in superb fashion, as shown in the video below:
