Animal Friends Insurance
Founded in 1998, Animal Friends is an ethical pet insurance company that was established with the sole aim of providing insurance as a means to help support animal welfare charities. The company’s ethos, aims and values have enabled them to become one of the largest pet insurance providers in the UK (Datamonitor 2013).
What’s more, they have currently donated over £1.7 million to animal welfare charities all over the world, and this includes us! SPANA have been blessed to have a considerable amount of funds donated by Animal Friends over the years. In May 2014, they donated £40,000 which entirely funded our lameness campaign! We have also been privileged enough to receive funds from Animal Friends via their Employee of the Month scheme, Facebook charity competition and goodwill donations. In total Animal Friends has donated a staggering £62,450 to SPANA!
Here’s how you can help. We are proud affiliates of Animal Friends, so by insuring your pet or equine with them via this link, SPANA will receive commission! If you aren’t looking for insurance, why not ‘like’ their Facebook page; they donate £1 to animal welfare charities for every ‘like’!

Donate Your Scrap Car to SPANA
We have recently teamed up with Giveacar, the car donation website. If you are thinking about scrapping your car, why not donate it to SPANA? Giveacar arranges the free collection of all cars, anywhere in the UK. Cars are either recycled, and a donation made based on the value of scrap metal, or put into an auction, and a donation made based on the proceeds of the auction. To donate a car to SPANA, please click here and it will take you to our page on the Giveacar website.
If you're not quite ready to say goodbye to your vehicle, why not pledge it for later? It's a non-binding pledge, more a way to help spread the word about our innovative service and to show your support for one of our many causes. Just go to http://giveacar.co.uk/content/pledge-your-vehicle-charity for more information!
Run for charity
Do you need help with a charity running or getting started in charity runs? With a wealth of information on how to fundraise, fundraising ideas and easy fundraising our partner Run for Charity will help you learn how to get more from your fundraising efforts and raise even more money for your charity.
