Registered Charity No: 209015 (England & Wales).

SPANA is the leading charity for the world’s working animals. We’re passionate about protecting and caring for working animals, with a network of fixed and mobile clinics that provide a lifeline for hundreds of thousands of sick and injured animals each year.

Across the world, over 100 million donkeys, horses and mules do the jobs of trucks, tractors and taxis, supporting the livelihoods of some of the poorest communities in the developing world. Alongside working camels, oxen and other animals, this undervalued workforce is essential to the health and economic wellbeing of millions of vulnerable families.

Life can be short and painful for hardworking animals, and many will never have access to even basic veterinary care. SPANA believes these essential animals deserve more and their life of work should be rewarded with compassion, empathy and care. SPANA makes a difference through its unique approach of treatment, training and teaching.

We provide free veterinary treatment for working animals at our centres across Africa, the Middle East and Asia. We promote humane care to animal owners and build expertise amongst local vets so they can treat even more animals than we can reach. Finally we teach children - the future generation of animal owners - to develop positive beliefs, respect and compassion towards animals.

We would be enormously grateful if you could remember working animals with a gift to SPANA in your Will. We always recognise the kindness and compassion behind each gift. Thank you.
