Leave a kinder future for working animals

This is difference your bequest can make

Including a bequest in your Will to SPANA means you will help us relieve the pain and suffering of sick and injured working animals long into the future.

These gifts are vital as they fund approximately half of everything we do for working animals. In fact, around 200,000 free veterinary treatments for sick animals are only possible each year because of bequests in Wills. These gifts help pay for veterinary medicine, vital equipment and kept our mobile clinics on the road in the remotest areas. Bequests in Wills also help us teach thousands of animal owners how to look after their animals, and they help inspire children – the next generation of animal owners – to treat animals with kindness and compassion.

 

Here is a message from one of our vets in Morocco about the difference gifts in Wills make to the animals he treats.

I've chosen to work for SPANA because they do tremendous work in providing free treatment for animals and also in educating their owners. Nearly half of everything I do is possible because kind people remember SPANA in their wills.

Why SPANA?

Our vision is a world where every working animal lives a life free from suffering and is treated with compassion.  Including a bequest in your Will to SPANA will help us make that world a reality. SPANA’s unique combination of treating, training and teaching projects will create a more compassionate future for working animals.  But we can’t do it without you.  With gifts in Wills funding around half of everything we do, your bequest could play a vital part.

A bequest in your Will could relieve the immediate suffering of horses, donkeys and other working animals through our free veterinary care. Your gift could help fund life-saving medicines or a new mobile clinic.

Your bequest could be a kinder future for working animals through our children’s humane education. Fostering compassion for animals in children – the animal owners of tomorrow – and building empathy can’t be done overnight. But your gift for the future could help make this possible, and ultimately make a lasting difference to the lives of working animals.

Quote from Linda Bell on leaving a charity legacy to SPANA
In some places in the world, it seems people don’t matter and life is cheap, so what chance for the animals on whom they depend? I so admire the work SPANA do on my behalf because I want to ease their suffering but cannot do it myself. I will continue to support SPANA during my lifetime and beyond, through a bequest in my Will. It is a modest amount but I could not overlook your fantastic work.
