Mellieha can be a place of its own due to being a long way from cities such as Valletta and Zurrieq. However, it’s still a place that you should visit as a tourist.

But you should also visit the Noah’s Ark Dog Sanctuary. The story of it’s founding is an emotional one. Fabio Ciappara was walking in Ahrax and met this dog which was starving and abandoned.

Fabio visited him day after day to give him food and raise trust to be able to give him a home.

After this was successful in 2005, Fabio decided to take this further than just one dog and fast forward today Noah’s Ark is home to just over 100 dogs.
