SPANA in Jordan

• One veterinary centre • Two mobile clinics • 25,000 animals treated each year • One education centre


In Jordan many working animals live in rural areas ploughing fields and transporting goods.

SPANA's two mobile clinics travel to villages every day, covering thousands of kilometers every year. Animals in need of more specialised care or hospitalisation are brought to our centre.

SPANA’s education centre hosts a series of Animal Clubs which help children understand the important role animals play in our lives.
