Horse being treated in Ethiopia

We’re excited to announce that SPANA has been named “Best Animal Welfare Charity” (for Europe, the Middle East and Africa) at the 2016 Animal Health Awards. SPANA Ethiopia has also been recognised for its work, picking up the “Best in Prevention of Cruelty to Working Animals” award.

The annual awards, run by GHP Magazine, aim to acknowledge and reward organisations that have gone beyond their duty of care to improve the welfare, care and health of animals.

Jeremy Hulme, Chief Executive of SPANA, said:
“It’s a real honour for SPANA to receive these international awards. Around the world, our dedicated teams work tirelessly to improve the health and wellbeing of working animals. They are driven by a passion for animal welfare and a strong commitment to ensuring that working animals can lead a life free from suffering. It’s wonderful that this work has been recognised and it gives me great pride.”
