Our work

What we do

We work in some of the poorest and most remote areas of the world, improving the lives of working animals that plough fields and transport goods, people and water.

We’re the world’s leading charity helping all species of working animals – and, for many animals, SPANA vets are the only ones they’ll ever see. SPANA protects working animals today by vet treatment and help in emergencies. But we’re also building a better future for working animals by teaching children compassion and training owners in proper care.

Discover how we’re helping working animals through veterinary treatment, training and education,and how you can support SPANA’s work by making a donation.
