Many of the injuries we see each could be prevented with an understanding of basic animal care. At SPANA, we’re working to make sure that wherever we treat, we also train.
By building skills and knowledge within communities, we’re helping to improve animal welfare in a sustainable way, preventing injuries and promoting compassion.
Meanwhile, by distributing comfortable tack, and by training local artisans to produce appropriate alternatives, we’re working hard also getting to the root cause of common problems.
Our vets provide vital treatments to hundreds of thousands of animals each year – but millions more still need our help. That’s why we also deliver professional training that improves skills in developing countries around the world, supporting local vets, vet students, farriers and technicians.
We’re working with teachers too, sharing the techniques and knowledge they need to deliver effective humane education that can transform the communities in which animals work.
