At a time of loss, people often draw comfort from commemorating the life of someone special by donating in their memory to their favourite charity.
A donation to SPANA in memory of a loved one will ensure that their name will live on in happy, healthy working animals around the world. Your donation ensures that we can continue to provide veterinary care, education and support for not only working animals but the communities that depend on them as well.

Events in Memory
Many people chose to remember a friend or family member by doing something active or participating in an activity that they loved. We welcome fundraising events in memory including sponsored marathons, sports, swimming, bake sales – anything that you feel honours the passions of that special individual you want to remember through supporting SPANA. Find out more about fundraising events here.
A Lasting Memorial
As a way of SPANA saying thank you for gifts in memory, we’d like to create a lasting record to commemorate your loved one’s life. For tributes of £50 or more, we’ll record their name in our special Book of Remembrance kept at our head office. For tributes of £250 or more, your loved one’s name will be recorded with a plaque on our memorial wall, in the beautiful gardens of our centre in Marrakech.
Tribute giving, whether for a birthday, wedding or anniversary is a lovely way to celebrate happy memories by supporting the SPANA’s work. If you’re stuck for ideas on what to give your loved ones, consider a donation in memory to SPANA for the animal lover in your life.
Donate in Memory of Beloved Pets
For many of us, animals are part of the family. Our pets receive all of the love, care and attention that they could ever want, and there’s always a vet on hand should they fall ill. Sadly not all animals are so lucky and due to poverty and lack of education, SPANA finds many animals in desperate need around the world. A gift to SPANA in memory of your pet will honour their life in a very special way; by helping those animals which are less fortunate around the world.
