Ethiopian students with SPANA workbooks

SPANA believes that hardworking animals deserve to be treated with compassion and empathy. We believe that a life of work needn’t be a life of suffering.

Our animal education team runs education projects in each of our permanent countries, supporting the development of positive, compassionate attitudes towards animals from a young age.

We also work through existing animal club networks, supporting teachers in delivering humane education within communities far beyond the reach of our veterinary programme.
