By supporting SPANA on Giving Tuesday, you will help us strive for a world where every working animal lives a healthy and valued life and is treated with compassion.
But we can only do this with your kind support. And our work is now more important than ever.
Sadly, a generation of working animals risk death from the devastating effects of global poverty and climate change.
Many animals lost their lives in the recent catastrophic earthquake in Morocco and others were left without access to food or water.
In drought-stricken Ethiopia, the high cost of feed means some owners have been forced to abandon their animals. The remaining animals struggle on, working harder than ever with little food and water.
In these extraordinarily tough circumstances, we must help working animals by making sure food, water and medicines are readily available.
By supporting SPANA today, you will help us strive for a world where every working animal lives a healthy and valued life and is treated with compassion.
Please be there for working animals by supporting us this Giving Tuesday. Thank you so much.

How does SPANA help working animals?
At SPANA (the Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad), we are transforming the lives of working animals. In some of the world’s most impoverished areas, horses, donkeys, mules, camels, oxen and other animals plough fields and transport people and goods to support their owners’ livelihoods.
Yet despite their key role, this invisible workforce of over 200 million animals is almost completely overlooked. They often lead short, hard lives, working in extreme conditions, with little rest, poor nutrition and without access to the care and support they need.
Working in more than 20 low-income countries across Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America, SPANA provides lifesaving treatment and care to working animals in the greatest need. We also bring about lasting change by training owners in good animal care and teaching children about animal welfare.
