We saw an array of cute dogs on the island of Santorini on our recent Greek Isles cruise. Unfortunately many of them are strays, but we were really excited to learn that the Santorini Animal Welfare Association (SAWA) ensures that stray dogs are neutered and spayed, vaccinated, and de-wormed. You can even adopt these wonderful, friendly dogs from SAWA or make a donation to support their efforts!
