SPANA’s Outreach Programme

In addition to our core veterinary and education work, SPANA operates an outreach programme. Each year, we support organisations worldwide that promote the welfare of working animals by providing funding and technical advice.

The aim of the programme is to increase our outreach to communities that depend on working animals and provide them with sustainable solutions to improve animal care, management and welfare. By supporting local organisations we can reach more animals and assist more communities worldwide.
