Become a stable sponsor and provide a haven of care

In developing countries around the world more than 200 million animals are being used as trucks, tractors and taxis. Tragically, in the course of their working lives, many of these hard working animals will suffer from malnutrition, exhaustion, disease or injury. But there’s a wonderful way you can help to ease the pain and suffering of these animals – as a SPANA Stable Sponsor.

The stables at our 14 SPANA centres across Africa and the Middle East are a lifeline for many thousands of horses, donkeys and other animals. Whether it’s a donkey seriously injured in a road traffic accident, a horse suffering with tetanus, or a mule with a badly infected wound, every day, with your help, our teams will be there to give free, lifesaving care.

You can sponsor a donkey, horse, camel or other working animal as a Stable Sponsor, and will play a special part in an animal’s recovery. Your support will provide expert treatment, medicines, food, rest and recuperation that these vulnerable animals urgently need.

Look at the difference your sponsorship can make

This young donkey called Hassan was a recent patient at our centre in Morocco. After being kicked by a cow, Hassan needed emergency treatment for a painful hernia that has caused a large swelling on his side.

Could you help sponsor a donkey like Hassan, to help us treat him?

As a sponsor you’ll provide everything animals need to make a full recovery

Expert care

Your support will help buy the local anesthetics, antibiotics, painkillers and bandages SPANA vets need to treat serious wounds.

Lifesaving medicine

Your support will pay for animals to be vaccinated against painful and potentially fatal diseases like tetanus.

Food and rest

Many animals that come to our stables need to stay at least a week before they have fully recovered. Your gifts will provide the nutritious food, comfy stables and tender loving care these animals need to rebuild their strength while they’re in our care.
